Need help reducing file size for banner
« on: November 15, 2012, 06:21:33 PM »
Hi,
I'm new to Handmade Artists, so forgive me if this is posted in the wrong forum.  I wasn't sure where to post it.

I'm setting up my shop & currently have a jpeg of my banner.  The size is 1294x170 which is too large for this site.  I use a Mac book  and can edit in iphoto.  I can't seem to figure out how to reduce the file size so that I can post it here.

Any pointers?  Should I use another photo editing software program?

TIA!

- Jan

Why don't you upload a copy here in the forum on this thread and we'll edit it for you.

You can do that!

When I set up my banners I usually start with a multiple of 760 x 100 and then reduce it to those dimensions.   
Actually with the dimensions you have, if you have the ability to reduce the size with your editing program, you just need to reduce it to 760 and it comes out perfect 760 x 100.   If you can't reduce it, then by all means upload it here and one of us will reduce it for you.
