Default Chaos... A question

I posted three pics on a thread taken at the same time with the same digital camera. I changed the size to 640x480 before putting them up. The first and third went up fine, but the middle one was too big for OSO's size limit.

I used IrfanView to resize. Why the difference???

The JPG file format is a "compressed" picture format. The file size will be different for the exact same picture size depending upon the content of the photo.....shading, number of colors...ect.

If you had a picture that was 640x480 with just one solid color, the file size would be amazingly smaller.

Just re-do the photo and adjust the "quality" setting in the output options box.
