You can open the picture in several programs and change things. You can reduce the size or even change the format. If you change a .jpg to a .bmp, format of the file, you can shrink the picture in size. If you have a program like photo shop, you can change the picture in many ways, saving space.

I have used Microsoft Publisher for many years. You can change the size of the picture easily, as well as changing the picture to any format, or put many pictures together. like below.

Stretch is correct on this however I will add in my two cents of advice, minus 10 cents in tax....

Alot of even the basic picture editor programs (MS Paint, etc) will allow you to open the picture and to save it as a different format. For example, if the picture is a *.GIF file or similar i would not at all be suprised if it is 2MB in size, resave it as a *.jpg and it should go down rather nicely.

Some picture editing programs (such as Microsoft Publisher and Photoshop I believe) may even allow you to lower the image quality/size/resolution/etc. Lower quality typically means lower size.

You may even be able to find free programs online to convert the file formats/reduce the sizes, however as with anything from the internet... caution is advised.

I use Microsoft Office Picture Manager to do some fast picture resizing. It comes with all Windows package as a standard. Once you have called it up, just go to edit pictures, then to compress pictures and then choose what type of reduction you want (documents, web pages, E-mail messages). You then save it in a JPEG format. It's quick and easy and you can always undo if you still do not like the memory size, before saving it. I use it when I don't want to spend a lot of time with Adobe Photoshop.

For members with smaller computers/notebooks etc. I recommend the following site:


You can upload your photo, re-size & save it without loading any software onto your computer. It does a great job.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
