In "discussion" with Mary Sue, she suggested that I mention the suggested
size of images for the web.

Having taken a class in Photo Shop and digital imaging, the "recommended"
image size was 640 x 480 pixils or 6.5 x 4.5 inches.  That size takes less
space and less time for encripting to transmit. Images much larger than this
cannot be viewed on the computer screen.

How is this done?  In most of the Photo programs, there is a window for
"Images."  Clicking on this will give you such items a "Image Size," "Image
Format," and other image controls.

Of course, ALL images must be JPEG (jpg) formated.  That is the "universal"
format recognized by both PC and Macintosh systems.
