Default Unanswered: Kinzville NeWs Help I need help now! {Uploading The Entry}

I'm ready to upload my entry for the Flower Inspired Contest On kinzvillenewz.com. But I don't get this: Files uploaded must be in GIF or JPG form and must be less than 200k. I'm not that smart when it comes to this kind of stuff. I want to enter, but I just don't get that part. What does it mean? Please answer before 5 pm eastern. Thanks in advance, and have a Good Day.
Yours Truly,
~Queenofblosomes~
p.s: Good Luck to all thats entering the contest,

What program did you use to save it in? that will help me to help you.

When you click save within your program, look below the blank where you type the name of the file you are saving. See if there is a drop down menu (a box named "SAVE AS TYPE" with a scroll bar you can click on to "open this window" to have more options to save your file in. If you can get this far, then pick a jpg format, because those are usually smaller. JPG and BMP are files types much like an img (image) or doc (document) extensions. It tells the computer what program to use to open the file (what program the file was saved in and what computer language).

If you cannot get it accomplished, let me know what program you are using....I will try to check back here frequently to see if I can help you.

I had the same problem. Use paint to save your picture then when you go to name the picture, below it will have file type and bmp or bitmap will be there. Scroll down and select jpg instead. Then when you enter, browse where you saved your picture and it should work fine! Good luck. Let me know if you need any further help.

I think in this context it means KB meaning the file does not take up more than 200 kilo bytes. A byte is equvalent to one character whether it be a space or one typed letter. Hopefully that is a bit clearer than mud, and maybe someone can explain it a bit better than I.

I don't know too much about this, but I think I can help. If you go to the file where you saved your picture, you should be able to make sure it's below 200. Find your picture and click on it once. You should be able to see what kind of file it is and size. I don't know what operating system you're using. If that doesn't work, you can right click on the picture in the file and click properties. That should tell you the info on your picture. I hope this helped.

Oh well that is REALLY easy to fix don't worry! Did you use Paint to save your screenshot? Just wondering, because if so then it will be really easy. All you have to do to be able to submit it is make it less than 200K and in GIF or JPG format is to resave it under those categories. Just copen up the image, click the Save As button, then in the box below where you type the name of the picture, click the drop down menu of all the different file types to save it as. Click either JPG or GIF, and it will automatically be converted into that. I prefer JPG, but it is your choice. Also, if the image is too big, (which means it is over 200K), then upload it onto a site called tinypic.com, and it will make it smaller for you. (Then just copy and paste the image code that tinypic will give you.) Hope that this helps! Good luck on the contest!

If you follow twi-hard girl's or my instructions above it will be under the 200 limit. If it is greater than that, it won't load in the box on the entry form. If it loads, and shows your picture then you are okay to submit.

Hi! I saw your pic for the room entry and the post that said that you still did not get it. I took the picture of your room and converted it for you. It should work now. Take the image right here that I have attached and save it. Make sure that it still says JPG down below the box where you type in the picture's name. Also, I put it in as an attachment to my post just in case. The attachment should be a JPG below 200KB...I hope this helps! Best of luck with the contest!

Oh, and don't worry, I made sure that I deleted the picture after I converted it, so nobody can steal your ientry from me, at least.
