Default file size too large?

I keep getting rejected for file size too large when i dont crop. And when i do crop it absolutely kills my image quality. Isn't there any way I can just resize my image?

What size do you have it set on your camera?

If you have photoshop cs there is a feature called "Save for the web". You can see your photo quality and size in a side by side window. Also you can dial up or down the image quality to reach the 200K file size.

Putting it at the largest should help. It'd give you more room to work with. When I put my photos onto the computer, they're 2304 x 1728. The optimal size here is 1024 x 768 or 800 x 600. When you upload them, I believe RP's server re-sizes the images to the correct size for the site. I'd re-size the image in your photo editor to either 1024 x 768 or 800 x 600, whichever one you prefer.

Remember, "file size too large" may also mean that you are not compressing your image enough when you save it for the web, not just that your image has too many pixels. Make sure the file size of your final image is less than about 200K.
