    I wouldn't compress too much. JPEG's that are compressed a lot look like crap.

    You need to first crop it as small as you can and then simply resize it so that it meets the criteria here.

    You can also upload them to a webpage and use the IMG button and paste a pretty good size pic as it will not be "hosted" by LS then.

    Any of your photo software can crop, resize and compress. Just monkey around with it for a while!

    If you don't have a photo editor, paint will work. Just open the picture in paint and up on the toolbar click image, then stretch/skew. Stretch (or shrink) the photo about 40% and save the file. That should do the trick. I usually use adobe photodeluxe to shrink the file to 640x480.

    Hope that helps
