I have a couple pics of my RC I'd like to post but they are 365kb!
How can I make the two pics to fit the 50kd size limit?
I have photoshop on my work pc, but don't know how to use it. My pics are on a floppy.
???

There are different ways, and usual a combination works best:

reduce the physical size of the picture in pixels:
go to Image -> Image Size. Make sure 'Constrain Proportions' is marked (at the bottom), then give it a smaller size, either in pixels or inches. For example, if the pictures are 1024x768, reduce the size to about 480x360 or even 400x300 pixels, that's still a decent size and it will reduce drastically the file size.

secondly, to save, go to File -> Save for Web. On the right, select JPEG, Optimized, quality about 50-60. It'll tell you, the new filesize under the right picture in the "2-up" mode (check right under the title bar: Original, Optimized, 2up, 4up).

These measures should bring you well below 50KB, around 42-48KB, good enough to post them here.

Hope it helps.
