Hmmm!  I have just spent nearly an hour trying to resize each of five photos to fit as close to the .49MB limit as possible.   The first two I have posted look terrible compared to the originals.  There must be a better way.   If there are instructions on the forum on how to do this better, could someone point them to me please?   I wont post any more pics until I get this figured out properly.

Did you try JPEGmini?

What postprocessing software do you use?

In Lightroom just set the parameters in the export dialog.

Most other software works the same way

In Photoshop, flatten your image, set Mode to RGB, 8-bits, resize to 1280 pixels, sharpen if needed, edit--> convert to profile sRGB and save as and adjust compression ("quality"- mostly 10 or 11).

Jaap, thanks for the definitive process for Forum resizing using Photoshop.  Now I know exactly what to do.  Just one clarification.  I assume you mean 1280 pixels on the longest side of the image.

Correct.BTW, 10-11 quality is for 1000 kB. for 500  kB you'll need to drop down a bit more - it will be virtually invisible, though.

The new limit is now 1000KB. The pixel counts have been changed as well:

      Hallo,
      ich bin gerade dabei mir für einen längeren Auslandsaufenthalt in Neuseeland eine Leica M zuzulegen, der Body wird wahrscheinlich eine M2 (ca. 500€) von Meiers Fotobörse, da ich mir die dort noch leisten kann (bin noch Schüler).
      Mir fehlt dann nur noch ein Objektiv, am Besten ein 50mm oder ein 35mm Objektiv. Auch hier ist mein Budget eher niedrig (~300€ +-), daher hatte ich an ein 7Artisans 35mm f/2 (nichts für Puristen), ein Voigtländer Color Skopar 35mm f/2,5 (ein bisschen über dem Budget), Summicron 40mm f/2 (passt gerade so mit den Framelines) oder sogar ein Jupiter 8 50mm f/2 mit Adapter gedacht (damit hatte ich schlechte Erfahrungen bisher).
      Welche Linse bietet sich da am Besten an? Habt ihr noch andere Vorschläge? Ich bin kein Purist, also ist mir die Marke egal.
      Ist es vielleicht sogar am Besten, wenn ich nur bei 40mm bleibe, mir eine Leica CL trotz der geringen Messucherbasis zuzulegen?
      Oder macht das überhaupt gar keinen Sinn hier bei einem solchen Budget zu investieren?
       
      Danke für eure Hilfe!
       
       
      P.S. Ich habe zwar bereits eine Fm2n, die will ich verkaufen, da mir die Ergonomie und der Stil einer Leica besser gefällt und diese kompakter ist? Ich hatte sogar schon an eine Pen FT gedacht, da sie vom Design her einer Leica ebenbürtig ist und ich die kreativen Möglichkeiten sowie die 72 Bilder pro Film sehr ansprechen finde, anderseits ist Halbformat eben sehr klein..

      Hi,
      I am in the fortunate position of travelling to South Africa (near Cape Town).  Photography is not the purpose of the trip but it would be ‘rude’ not to take a camera.
      I have a cl, which I am excited about.  It is a recent purchase with the kit 18mm lens.  It replaces my Fuji x100t which I really enjoyed but I wanted to be able to change lens’ and I preferred the cl to Fuji x-pro 3.
      i just like having a camera in my jacket pocket, hence the 18mm.  Physical, it makes the cl very similar to the X-100 series.
      Now for the questions:
      Is the 23 Summicron significantly better quality than the 18mm (I cant find the physical length lens so will pop into shop to see)? Is the APO-VARIO-ELMAR-TL 55-135MM considered to have a ‘good’ IQ? Should I be looking at other L-Mount lens?  I have a SL2 and the 35mm Summicron, the 24-90 and an underused Sigma 14-24, but I would rather travel with something more compact and in line with the cl. The photography I like is mainly landscape but of course, a bit of street and social photography too.
      Thank you for your help in advance.

      Hi everyone! Nice to finally make the decision to join this community. 
       
      I made the switch to Leica from Nikon last year when I purchased the CL with a 23mm Summicron f2. 
       
      I absolutely love the camera and the setup for the type of photography I do. 
       
      at the moment, my current setup is the CL with a f/1.4 Super Takuma 50mm (thorium glass model).

      You Tube VideoHello everyone!
      I am back with another mod. 
      This time I converted my Leica CL into a full spectrum camera to use it for infrared photography.
      Here is a time-lapse video. I will soon post some photos from the camera.
      Hope you like it.

      My CL didn't switch automatically between LCD and EVF any more,  so I sent it in.
      As it turned out, the eye-sensor had shifted. Given that the camera just returned from a trip through Tanzania in rather adverse conditions, it was not pristine to put it mildly when sent in and it had received a couple of shrewd knocks, so it came as no surprise that Leica refused guaranty. I did protest gently, but success could not be expected. Anyway, the estimate came to 375 Euro, which I of course accepted.
      However, just now, the camera was evidently opened up for repair and CS revised the cost to 135 Euro. I find that really honest and customer-friendly.
