Send the new pic/avatar to "Editor @ jamieoliver dot com" remove any spaces..

You may need to send the image as an attachment...Merlin has taken over from Danny,  he will sort it...

Hi WheelieFoodChik,

The file size is reflected in the number of bytes it is, not just its dimensions. As Wine~o said, though, if you'd like to send it to the editor account I'll gladly fix it for you.

Re: Website/forum: issues and complaints?

the file size requirements are a bit ridiculous .. with the high  quality of photos taken now even on smartphones, getting down to 10kb   with the software most people have is a chore.

Re: Website/forum: issues and complaints?

@Merlin: I just sent the new pic to the editor account. Watch out for the subject line: New Avatar Pic-WheelieFoodChik wink

PS: Merlin, I accidentally sent the pic for the avatar from my old email! I sent it again under my current email, subject line: New Avatar Pic- WheelieFoodChik(current email)...the 2nd version should match the email on file for me now.

Hey Constance!  Nice to see you! You look lovely!  Where have you been and what is going on with you?

Merlin, you look quite nice in your new photo as well.  I hate to even ask, but when I try the 'Recipe' option at the top of the page, the pull-down menu isn't forthcoming.  If it's my fault, delete this message before MrP sees it, Ok?  Thanks!  @Merlin #WishI knewWhatIWasDoingMoreOften#ButI'mHopeless . . .

Ms.P,
Umm, who's this Constance person? Lol

As for Candance, she's been through a few bad things and back to dealing with school(details in blog), says thanks for the compliment and thinks it great to see you too.

Oh my goodness! It's been a while since somebody messed up name THAT bad!

When I find Constance, I'll tell her you said "Hi!" lol

I'll check out your blog.  Be good!

I have to agree with Ashen posting photos is areal chore and takes simply ages, I have loads of blog photos that need to be posted but sizing them is such an issue that I have to get up the courage to try .
When I do I try to resize several times before it is accepted ... It's a real pain !

When the blogs started the the cameras only had a small amount of mega pixels in size now as Ashen points out even smart phones have a far greater quality.

Sites like Instagram , Flicker and Facebook allow the photos to be posted easily and without all the fuss that we seem to have to go through to post a photo onto the blogs.

Is there anyway that this can be improved to allow greater quality pictures with a higher megapixel please .
