Members have a size limit of 2MB for uploaded pics. If your first pic was bigger than that, you'll be out of luck.
You can resize the image on your computer by using Photo Editor or right clicking and selecting resize. When I resize I usually pick the "Medium" format.

There are three common electronic image formats, identified by their extension: GIF, JPG and PNG.
1. Change the Image Format
Graphic Inforation Format (GIF) files use only 256 colours. This is not suitable for award-winning photographs of the "Sunset on the Kalihari", but is completely adequate for your purposes.
Save the files as GIFs.
Select: File >> Save As (The Save As dialog box will open.) In the drop-down list of file types, select: GIF.
(This is the basic methodolgy that works with almost all illustration packages.)
2. (The obvious. Works with All Formats) Make the Picture Smaller
Crop the picture to eliminate unnecessary area. (Consult the online help.)
3. (If not using GIF) Reduce the number of colours (sometimes identified as 'Reduce Colour Depth'). (Consult the online help.)
4. (Works with All file Formats) Set Print Quality to Lower Resolution
This has nothing to do with online viewing, but may affect your file size because the illustration has been set to print on a high definition printer.
Typical resolution is 600 dots per inch (dpi), but may be 1200 dpi. Try saving with a 300 dpi resolution.
This can become very confusing and points per inch (ppi) enter the picture (--no pun intended--). (Consult the online help.)
Experiment and review file size and clarity.
As a tip: Record your procedure for next time.
I hope this helps.
