Can anyone tell me how I make my images 150k for this site? Every time I try to load an image it says it is too big - I'm pulling my hair out!!!

hey,

basically use photoshop or your chosen image editor. Use the crop tool to reduce the size down to at least 640px. Then save for web/optimise as a jpg file.

Use the crop tool to get your desired composition, then use resize to bring it to 640 pixel. Then save as... Choose JPEG and when it asks you for quality, check compression size as you you scale it down...

What graphics software are you using? If you are using Photoshop, save for web, check the optimise box top right, click on the little arrow above the check box, optimise to file size, type in 148K and then save. . .
