Wanting to start a Sketchbook but......
When I uploaded the pictures to the thread they were humongous! So I went into Photoshop and re sized them down and they were still big when I re-uploaded them! Does anyone know how to fix this? I have a scanner I use because it has better quality than a photo but I don't want to rip my pages out of my sketchbook to scan them so how do I do this?
P.S Just in case your wondering the drawings I scanned were on just printer paper that's how I could scan them.

Well, I always resize my pictures with this after scanning them in :http://imageresizer.codeplex.com/
It's incredibly useful and you can resize all the pictures you need to all at once by highlighting multiple files. Like Dpaint said, resize them to like 600x800 pixels.

What dpaint said.
Reduce your image to 500 pixels (in your case) and change your current 300 dpi images to 72--*with ‘Resample Image’ unchecked (recheck it when done).
A quick way, in Photoshop, would be to reduce the pixel size to 500 and then save image under ‘Save for Web…’. Saving for web will make your images 72 dpi.

Does it really matter to change the DPI?
As far as I know the only thing here that´s important is to set the width/height pixels. It doesn´t matter if it is set to 72dpi or 300dpi. The width/height in pixel is what counts on a monitor.

yeah, but it's stupid to post an image in more than 72 dpi (+-) in the web, because, first, you won't see a difference if you put more, second, the size of the image (kb) will be bigger and consequently will take more bandwidth and load slowly.
(this is wrong, see bjoern3000 post bellow.)

check file size, think it needs to be under 1.25mb to upload
Edit to add
Click on Go advanced post mode then paper clip and then ? in top right of uploader pop up for file types and size
Example 1.43mb for png

pegasi - no this is not the case. It absolutely doesn't matter if the picture is 500px wide and set to 72dpi or 500px wide at 300dpi. Neither the size of the displayed image on the monitor nor the filesize change (see the pictures attached with 72dpi, 300dpi and 3000dpi).
500px wide with 72dpi - 243.3kb
500px wide with 300dpi - 243.3kb
500px wide with 3000dpi - 243.3kb
It is just an information written into the file for a printing machine.

Bjoern speaks truth. Your monitor thinks in pixels, your printer thinks in dots per inch. Worry about pixels when you're formatting for the web; worry about dpi when you're formatting for print.
I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).
