Unhappy File size too big?

I've been trying to post new entries but three or four times now I get a message that the file is too big.
According to the Image Size reading on my Photoshop 6.0.
the one I just tried to upload said it was 1.71kb. Others that didn't go through were all under the 200kb limit.
Do you think I'm getting faulty readings from my program...or am I mistaken to think Image Size and File Size are the same?

right click on the actual file and go to properties...see what it says for file size compared to what Photoshop says.

Well, here's the thing - I tried that and can't get a Properties reading when the file is still in Photoshop.
We do that to images displayed on the web all the time, but while it's still open I can't find where "Properties" resides.
Any clues?

Aint insomnia wonderful?

Yes. Went there, did that.
Turns out it was 247kb.
Tried to opitimize within Photoshop - $!##* - so went over to Net Mechanic and used the Gif Bot.
The result is now up in Retouching Challenge # 22 - Ken's Wife Tammi.
Thanks Greg for pointing me in the right direction.
