Default Resizing Layouts for upload?

Hi all!

I am trying to upload my 1st LO to the gallery and am having problems - I thought I read somewhere to downsize to 72 dpi - 600x600. When I did that it said that my image was too large - HELP! Am I missing a step somewhere?

Is there a tutorial or instruction posted somewhere?

Any advice is greatly appreciated!
have a great night!

Maureen

Once I resize, using the calculations you have above, I then go File>Save for Web, and make sure the quality is under 150kb.

Also, make sure you've flattened your layout before resizing it for the web.

I just noticed you only have 2 posts... I don't think you can post to the gallery until you have 10 posts...

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong!
