Are you using the CraftArtist2 program? Do you need to reduce your file size so you can upload to the gallery here? Our gallery has a maximum upload file size of 250 KB.

Anne has very kindly provided this 'how to' image. Thanks Anne!

Hi Robyn and Anne I am really sorry for uploading those large files. I can't find them and think you may have deleted them, which is fine. I really do not remember how I managed to upload in the first place, and would appreciate if you could tell me how :)
Thanks
Jane


PS found out how to upload but the file I used is 238kb but is showing larger in the details in the gallery. Sorry, but I don't understand that. :(

238 KB is 238 x 1024 bytes, or nearly 244 thousand bytes. Could that account for the difference you're seeing, Jane?

Hi so sorry I did not see this before. I hope you have not given up on it.
If your original page is a square page ( size does not matter LOL ) then it will automatically adjust to a square size what ever you do.
If it is a rectangle page it will adjust to that.
Don't worry about it the main thing is that the new size is 250 kb or under.... whatever the other measures are, the gallery here will take it.
If you need more help send me a private message and I will do a step by step for you , no problem
