If I am not available and you need technical support, you may find the answer to your question on my Technical support web site or, for more advanced subjects, by reading the threads I participated in as a member of technical professional web community Tek-Tips and platform sdk (member name: dgschnei) .

Making certain that people (and more particularly children) develop constructive values, ethical morals and trustworthy use of technology is the responsibility of all adults and professionals. As professionals and decent citizens, what we can do is share what we know with the people around us and coach to use computers (and other technology) the right way. Most people use computers for games and most people know how to point-and-click. That is great, but computers have a lot more to offer...

Do not hesitate to contact Dominique G. Schneider if you need more information.

IV Sharing Pictures or Photographs

Photos and Image Quality
Generally speaking it is advised to use:

Image Optimization (JPEGs reproduce photographs very well)
The idea behind making images load faster is to make the files' sizes smaller. This can be accomplished in two ways: you can either make the dimensions of the image smaller, or decrease the amount of coding that is required to display the image (called compression).

The easiest way to reduce an image's file size is to reduce the image's physical dimensions.
An image that is a square 80 pixels by 80 pixels containes 6400 individual pixels (80x80). Reducing the image size by one half to 40 pixels by 40 pixels requires 1600 pixels (40x40).
So reducing the image size in half reduces the file size to one fourth of the original.

Image compression decreases the necessary coding. In a JPEG image the compression is accomplished using software algorithms to remove redundant information from the file.
Whenever a file is compressed it will lose some image quality. You have to reach a balance between a small file size and acceptable image quality. Find the least acceptable level of image quality. Most images can handle some compression with very little quality loss, and all images can stand more image quality loss and still be acceptable. Your job is to decide how much quality loss you can accept. Remember: the lower the quality, the smaller the file size!

Display Properties and Pictures
Elaborate scanned photographs may need a higher screen resolution.
Your monitor and display adapter determine whether you can change your screen resolution.
In the Color Palette list, click the number of colors that you want your monitor to display.

The difference between an unsuccessful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.

Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance.
