Akavar photo question

Don't know if this is the right place for this??????
Would like to add a pic, but I can't get it down to 20000 bytes.
Any help out there.......

The ride is the objective, the destination is an excuse

Couple hints:

-) Scale the photo down to the size it is going to be displayed: about 100x100 pixels
-) When using Photoshop for the scaling be sure to use: "Save for web use" That saves A BUNCH of information since most of the metadata is skipped.
-) When saving as jpeg make sure to use a 'quality setting' of around 70 or below. That also saves A BUNCH

These three point above should get almost any picture down to the required size. in fact I recently resized a pic that supposedly didn't go below 35k down to 3.5k !!

If all fails, send me the picture in a PM and I will resize it for you.

If you don't have Photoshop, you could e-mail me the image and I'll reduce it for you and return it to you. PM me if I can help.
