Did you re-size them as I suggested?
Actually, another thing to do BEFORE re-sizing them, is to crop off excess background above, below, and from the sides of the subject photo material, THEN re-size to 800 pix wide.
I use a free downloaded photo editor that saves the .jpg images to almost HALF the kb file size that windows paint saves them to. It has helped me to be able to post much bigger, clearer pix and still have under 100k file size (typically 85k for 90% of my photos).
Check out the John Player Norton or 880 Custom cafe racer project threads and you'll see what I mean. The only files I posted larger than 800 pix wide are the final / complete side-on shots at 1000 pix wide, still BARELY 100k with very good resolution (for an internet photo)...
I've started resizing the files, but I'm in the middle of studying for an exam and we're trying to sell the house. So the Norton is going to sit and soak in penetrating oil until I'm done painting a few windows and repairing some drywall. That is if my sickness doesn't take over. That is my addiction to grease and oil.
