I have DSL, my pics are Jpg. I don't understand while it takes forever to download a pic. Getting to where I hate posting pics cause it takes so long. The last pics I downloaded, I went and made me a cup of coffee, put the dogs out so they could do their business then was even able to bring them back in, and the pics still was not done. Is anyone else having this problem?

if you mean that you are trying to upload pics to the board to share with us, you might want to try to reduce, or resize, the pic before posting. I use Picasa, which is free, and that has the choice of editing in Picnic. I do that and the resizer works very well. I usually choose 600 pixels and leave the choice of the other box on auto. Then you have to save to Picasa and then save to the disk. Sounds like a lot of steps, but the programs are free and work well. hope that helps.

I usually make my pics as small as 250 pix. and they seem plenty large, only takes seconds to upload.
