Thanks Carolyn, I sent $ today to rejoin Potters Council also.

I'll try to post pics here as soon as I figure out how to deduce the file size to less than 500k. Right now my camera takes pics at about 800k.

see my blog site americanpotter.blogspot.com for images of work, I'll try to put more pics up there.

If you look down in the earlier entries you will find pics from pots at the Freer/Sackler. If you like those I can post more of them too.

Welcome Eric! Look forward to your posts...

I'd like to post pics online in the Ceramic Arts Daily forum but one of the requirements is images size, 500 k. How do I get this? My camera normally shoots 1200k pics. It's a Canon Powershot 3.2 mg, my Mac is a PowerBook G4 with iPhoto and Preview software for managing photos.

Hansen,

The newer versions of Preview will adjust the size of a photo. You'll find it under Tools > Adjust Size.

If you have an older version of Preview, then download a free copy of Gimp, a freeware for basic image editing. http://www.gimp.org/macintosh/

Or if you don't want to load new software onto your mac, try this:

Well, actually my version of Preview doesn't have that feature. Now I will have to go hunt and peck for upgrades. I also have Canon software I haven't installed.

Open your photo in Preview. Under tools menu, go to adjust size. you can reduce it there. I have a MacBook
