    You need to remove the images and resize them, images don't really need to be more than about 70k for good quality.

    you need to get a program that resizes pictures...photoshop..or something equivalent..sometimes there are free downloads that can do it easily

    If you want, send them to me I can resize them and send them back to you.

    If you have Microsoft Paint, which virtually every computer running Windows has, then you can resize your pictures easily. Simply right click on a thumbnail of the file, click "Edit", then after the picture opens choose "Image" from the toolbar and "Stretch/Skew" from the drop-down menu. For a normal size digital photo (i.e. 1600 x 1200), shrink it to about 35-45% of its original size. I will usually save the resulting picture under a new filename to keep the original intact, then you can upload the shrunken pic.

    Good luck! :)

    I don't know what kind of camera you are using to take your pictures,but if you are using a digital you can resize them on your camera before you take them. I found that out the hard way. It's like doing the computer thing with two fingers and a on and off switch. Anything to do with electronics I'm a total failure.
