Outstanding, Tanya!  :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

If you have Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro or other photo editing software you can reduce the image size and the number of pixels per inch. Stay away from 600 ppi. You can get pretty decent results at 72 ppi. But no more than 300 ppi. GIMP will do all this and it's free. I never heard of the others, but if they're free, give them a shot. My photos usually start around 6 MB. After editing, they're under 1 MB.

Such very kind comments!   :thankyou: Everyone, it is very encouraging and motivating.  ;D

I finished this one last night - it's a bit of a departure for me, but I am enjoying it. This is my first time painting with ink, it took two coats to get a more vivid colour, but I find it is still not the brightness I was looking for. (Also, not the best photo!)

 :heeha: Wow Tanya. Though this is not my preferred style of art, I think it is very well done. It is well balanced and interesting to look at.  I'm a newer artist and by no means an expert but in my opinion, you've got a good thing going with your creations.  :clap:
