Scanning

Quote

Hi-
To anyone who can help-
ive just scanned a picture onto my computer and ive tried to upload it in a post but it doesnt work. Im using 'postimages.com' and the bar is turning from blue to range but then half way through the bar stops moving.
The wierd thing is though, the green bar at the base (which says the page is loading) on the window eventually turns all green, nut still the blue-ornage bar doesnt move.
Ive been tryin to upload ti for about 10 minutes now (and it doesnt usually take that long!).
Does anyone know whats wrong with it?

i forgot to add- ive tried this a couple of times so its not just a one off problem i think...

Aha...

Bmp means bitmap.

23.8 mb is a bit too big to be uploading... you need to save it as a jpeg.

Save it again, but go to save as and pick jpeg rather than bmp.

Most likely you need to reduce it a bit... what image program are you using?
