Easy for smart computer folks:) but I'm having trouble. My pics are in pixels and seem to be too big to upload. So how many pixels should I make them Brad

I am pretty useless also in the techi world. But there is an app called reduce and it does a great job

Hillscreek it doesn't matter pixel wise too much as the photo will be resized to fit the horizontal space no matter what. However pixel size does *roughly* correlate to file size. 

The black and white photo I used for Tess Case was 600x 42 pixels with a file size of 14KB.  Here is the image exactly as used:

For whatever platform or device you are using, see if you can find how to view the file size information for any given photo. Then you can use one of many means to resize it down until it is less than 250KB 500KB. If you let us know your PC or device type and operating system (Mac or PC, Android or IOS etc) we can almost certainly point you to instructions and resources. 

We can do this :thumbsup:

Thanks. Now I understand.

Another difficulty. I try to upload . It says I can only upload one pic but the space is blank. Must be from trying earlier with big pics. How can I clear the space and start over?

Not sure I can visualize this. What happens if you drag the photo onto the space where the upload cloud is?

Once it says "Done" click Save. You won't see the photo until after Saving and you move on to the next step, positioning.

It seems to have fixed itself. Now I can do it! I see I can change the photo any time. That's neat - for different seasons, places or whatever.

Thanks Brad for your kind patience. I really appreciate it
