Nope, still not nearly big enough to be able to do anything meaningful with. It needs to be at least 10 times that size. Minimum. You've already got the advice. Now why not apply it to upload a high resolution version?

Re: help, please

It takes a little practice to get the file size both acceptable for the forum (less than 100K) and to have enough pixels for us to work with. I am not a Paint Shop Pro user, so I am not familiar with the settings PSP uses to save jpg images. However, you should attempt to save the file as a copy, with an image resolution of 150 ppi or higher. The dimensions of the image in inches is not as important, as that relates more to printed size, not pixel size. While a "small" (in inches) image is not good for us either, we can easily change that. We just cannot recreate the pixels that are lost when the jpg compression is too great. (Well, we can recreate more pixels, but they will not look good or representative of the original image.)

Here is an example of what we see when we look at the thumbnail. As you can see, it just is not good enough to work with. So, practice getting more pixels into the 100K limit and try uploading again !

Hi josie j,

we all know that resizing images can be very confusing .. ... and my 'instructions' for it are limited to Photoshop, so, they aren't really of any help to you... I'll send you a PM with my email address where you can send the full size/resolution picture and I'll resize and upload it here for you.
