OK, I finally figured out how to upload a picture as a .jpg someone took of me, but when I tried it, it said it only too 50kb and the .jpg was 402 kb.  How can I cut it back to 50kb?

Make the photo smaller, say 100 pixels on the long side, then play with the compression while saving until it is under 50 kb.

I haven’t used it myself. Someone else recommended it.

If you’d like, Occam, I give you my e-mail address (via PM), you can send me the photo and I will adjust it for you. Let me know.

hmmm.  Sounds like the makings of a new thread:
Has time changed anything for you?

Trying to come up with a cute answer, I’m finding it a more difficult question than I assumed.
Kids are older, yips the oldest hit thirty.
This past half year haven’t had a thing to build, but after decades of nonstop work, I’m lovin being out of work and employed in my own follies full time for a change.
Disappointment with society’s sheeple and the masters of the universe keeps growing.
I still love the sunrise and the moonrise and a walk in the country.
Sometimes I think the more I learn the less it matters.
and so on and so forth…
oh oh

ps.  DM good to see you around again, seems like its been a while, or am I just not paying attention.

No, you were paying attention.  I haven’t been around for the last month or so.  Thanks by the way.  Nice to be back annoying everyone.  cheese

EDIT
Fixed a word omission.

I find that compressing a jpeg down to about 35% of it’s full resolution has few artifacts and looks good, with lots of compression, for most photographs, but not that good looking for cartoons.  Use the GIMP.  You can’t adjust the compression on most of the images including GIFs, TIFFs, BMPs, etc.  SVGs are uncompressed vector images, not bitmaps.

OK, E-M.  I’ve finally (with help) figured out how to put up a photo of me as my avatar and showing that I really am an old fud.  Happy now?  smile
