    I've manipulated pics for years now. The one thing I can't seem to accomplish is reducing them down to the 50K limit needed for my albums. I've tried paint shop pro, some online programs & reducing them in the camera. Can someone point me in the right direction.
    thanks

    I use the program Compupic from photodex.com. A simple pull-down menu command allows resizing to whatever size you want. Compupic also allows sharpening, color changing, and other effects.

    Photodex - CompuPic Pro

    Its actually the only way I know how to do this. Never used photoshop myself. Not sure how much overlap there is between the two programs, but I've used this program for many years. There is a 30 day free trial, but I think the $50 is worth it. Very easy to use and organize photos too.

    Microsoft Paint works great for this, just hit shift-w and resize them to whatever %. Even dropping to 99% will usually cut them at least in half. Shouldn't be too hard to get them to 50k in jpg.
