Instructions for compressing images
There are a number of ways to compress your images (that is, to make them take up less computer space, which makes them easier to upload). One way is to open the image in Microsoft Picture Manager, which is installed on many computers — just navigate to the location of the image on your computer and click on it.
In Microsoft Picture Manager choose the button that says “Picture” and then choose “Compress Picture” from the drop-down menu. Then choose “compress for web pages”. then choose “File” – “Save”.
Most other photo software has a similar function – if the photo is smaller than 2 mb you are unlikely to have trouble uploading it.
Then just upload the new image for the obituary.
