Question Unanswered: How to compress for contest?

I'm trying to enter my daughter's pink room in the current Webkinznewz contest. I took a screen shot and brought it up in paint. I then compressed it, but it is still too big for contest limits (200k). The original pickture was 500+MB. Estimated compression to be 500k but in actuality was 5MB. How do I get picture small enough to enter?

I think it might be the size that was too big.
try making the picture smaller, and crop the edges.

Good luck!

We did crop picture first, borders are edges of room.

I tried checking out this site and it won't come up. Tried typing in address as well as google. Can find an about page but nothing to use. Thanks for the suggestion.

Save the image as JPG. I do those all the time and they fit. If you save the pic as BMP, that is much larger.
If you didnt save it as jpg, take the pic again, paste in paint, crop and save as JPG. HTH!

Thanks for the help! I'm getting much closer, picture is down to 5 KB. Was able to save as JPG but couldn't figure out how to do JPJ.HTH.

I figure there has to be something simple about this that I'm missing. If it were too difficult, nobody would submit to the contest. I'm new to doing this kind of thing but am learning quickly. Thanks to those who have made suggestions. If anyone else has some more suggestions or knows what I'm doing wrong please let me know. Thanks!

name your pic
in the Save As... box, click the drop down arrow and scroll until you see .jpg or .jpeg
then click Save
then upload to the contest!
