You'll have to reduce the picture size using an image editing program such as Adobe Photoshop ($), MS Paint (free but limited), or Gimp (free and excellent!).

My choice:
The GNU Image Manipulation Program

yes, pixel sizes no larger than 210 height and width. Total file size no larger than 293 KB.

I second the recommendation for GIMP and if you need something resized, please feel free to pm me and I can do it for your or help you do it.

Two healthy legs to get started but any bird dog will make your time better even if you get nothing.
