Thanks Maria,  next problem is the pic is too big apparently.  Any idea how to reduce it?  Sorry, but I'm new to this.

Well the definitive answer to that is... it depends  :banghead:. It depends on what software you have on your computer. The posting guidelines say that the maximum size for an image should be 200kb. You need to downsize your existing image [always work on a copy of the original] by reducing the dots per inch [dpi] to 72 and then the scale of the image till you hit the magic 200.

There are a hundred ways of doing this. Some indication of your computing environment [operating system, relevant software installed] would help a fuller, more helpful answer.
