    heroneo99, I also do as what you have mentioned. I normally set my photos to 600 x 400 pixels, but sometimes, it still exceeds the 100kB limit (to enable me to upload to ClubSNAP Gallery). In situations by like this, I normally would set the Quality to 5. But this affects the photo quality a lot. Any way to go around the 100 kB limit, but still maintain the quality?

    naTGeo, you may first want to duplicate the image before re-sizing.

    Hmm, did u use Save for Web? Clt - Alt -Shft - S (shortcut) then u choose jpg, then choose "High" or "very High"

    U will see the file size at the bottom of the picture (set to view 2-Up)
    I can set my quality to Very High and stay within 100kb (jus tried)
    U can also fine tune the "Quality" yrself till u get 100kb

    heroneo99, thanks for the pointer. No, I did not do the 'Save for Web' option. I just re-sized it to 600 x 400 pixels and hope that it will be below 100 kB!

    Will try it out. Thanks again.
