To resize a file in photoshop:Go to IMAGE >image size, that will open an options box, you'll want to make your picture 72 dpi and then type in the width 420 pixels or 360 pixels, I wouldn't go any larger than 420. Also to get the best possible quaility with the compression the resampled image should be Bicubic Sharper. Then save your file again with the save as> under FILE, give it a new name and make sure it is a jpeg then when the jpeg options window opens set the quality no higher than 8. Easy as pie lol!! Here's some screen shots.

Well, they only are coming up one at a time for me.   ::)

That one was of Sapphire shortly after we got her.  It was taken on June 15th, so she was about 3 months old.

This picture includes both dogs, taking a quick break from playing.

Another great way to compress your images with photoshop, but still retain some good clarity is to use the "Save for Web" function.

Sapphire is gorgeous, and I think Gucci can be a honorary Big Paw, as she plays so nicely (and matches so well! :D) with Sapphire!

Sofia.... your dogs are beautiful. And your eskimo dog, well he could pass for a big pawed dog, you cant tell from that pic  ;D

If you click on additional options when you post you get the attachment line up, then click on "more attachments" and youll get another line up where you can attach more pics, keep doing that until youre done. you can attach several pics in one post.

Welcome to BPO by the way, I am sure youll love it here
