What are you using to get the text in your photos?
I'd like to do that myself. I'm using a very old version, 8.1, of Paint Shop Pro to crop and resize my pics from the 5Mb originals to very clear 400K final pics. My connection is pretty slow so when peeps post 10 - 5MB pics I just drop the page as it takes 5 min to load.
Dudes taking pics with their phones should drop rez to a step over web page levels to get great pics with much smaller file sizes!
My new phone takes 5MB pics at top rez but I only use my digi cam to take pics of my grow. The 20.1 MP format gives great detail even when downsized.
