    Oh, you guys are funnnn-ny!
    Does anyone know why it's gets grainy like that when it's reduced in size? I would expect that if I were blowing it up, but I though that usually pictures wouldn't loose quality when reduced.

    Here is the way I think it works in laymans terms. A JPEG image is made up of lots of tiny colored dots. There is a set amount of these dots for a given area. This means that when you compress the picture, some of the dots are sacrificed, so that the remaining dots have enough room. The result is a smaller but grainier picture. The convenient part is that by compressing the picture, you reduce the space it takes on your computer.

    schloaty,
    it looks like its compressed much more than it needs to be..
    there are levels of jpeg compression..yours is very highly compressed.
    if you want, you can email me the original, and I will see if I can make it small, but not so compressed..
    send it to:
