Excellent ... appears you have it figured out now! Your cropped and re-sized photo came through clear. Hope this relieves the frustration ... and hoping we get to enjoy some of your coin photos as a result of your new capabilities.
Thank you so much.
You are welcome ... pleased to offer some assistance.
Some suggestions on photo sizes for best CCF viewing ... now that you have the power at your fingertips to do what you want ...
Always set your resolution to 72 DPI ... that is the limit of our computer monitors and anything more than that adds to your file size with no increase in visual quality.
Limit your horizontal pixel with to 950 pixels max .... see my image above ... it fully fills the horizontal screen.
Limit your vertical pixel width to 500 pixels max ... this is the limit where your viewers do not need to scroll up and down to see the entire image. Your image above at 700+ vertical pixels requires a scroll effort to view ... keep this in mind in your next photo.
If you are showing a single coin ... like your photo above ... 500 pixels vetrical and 500 pixels horizontal at 72 DPI with a file size under 100K are perfect.
For fun ... resize your image above at those limits and re-post ... I believe you will enjoy the difference.
I recently found a Lincoln cent with 2 cuds and I would like to be able to download pics to this forum.
Wonderful ... looking forward to seeing this coin the the USA variety/error forum. Based on your image above ... you now have the proven ability to do so.
Is Photoshop Elements 6 free?
No ... it will cost you on the order of $80 ... believe the latest release is PSE 9 ....
Not inexpensive ... but powerful software for all your photography needs.
Edited to share some size guidance.
