and wanted to say Hi! Just bought my first 2002, a 1976 Granatrot metallic. It has a weber card and K&N air filter but otherwise stock. The car has lived in Canada all of it's life and I'm the fourth owner. I had a 1980 Porsche 911 but I find this is more of a blast to drive. The car has a little bit of rust and uses a bit of oil but nothing that can't be fixed over time. I have been reading FAQ for the last several months and learning about the 02 - thanks, it's been very helpful. Edward, if you're looking in - thanks for your help and support. My mechanics skills are limited and rusty (no pun intended) so I'll be asking a lot of questions in the future. First question - how do you reduce the size of a picture to fit the attachment - 3Mb down to 500kb. Once I figure that out I'll send a picture of the car.

Thanks,

Rod Crichton

Welcome to the sickness.

MSOffice 2002 and older comes with MS Photo Editor. You can use the resize tool to change the dimensions; and the save-as detail menu (for jpg format) to change file density. Both will reduce the file size.

Welcome to the cult, Rod.

Reducing a digital photos filesize is about a) shrinking the number of pixels (horiz & vert) of the image by scaling or cropping it, and then B) using compression in the file format you save it in. For photo posts to online forums like this, I shoot for less than 800 horiz pixels (sometimes 640), and I use a JPEG compression setting of 70-80%. That'll generally produce an image with a size of 120-130kb. HTH - show us a pic of your new ride.
