BikeOutback, that's perfect! If you right-click on the image in your post and click Properties, you'll see the pixel dimensions and the filesize. Keep in mind, though, that the image you posted has been downsized by this site when you submitted it. Your original image (the big version in the gallery) is as you submitted it. (Also keep in mind that the software used on this site to create the smaller gallery images is set for a very high compression level. I always submit smaller images and I notice that it seriously affects the quality, making the small version soft and fuzzy.) You'll also notice that with JPEG images, the more detail in the image (such as fine textures or lots of leaves, rocks or grass, for example), the larger the filesize will be at a given compression level. More highly detailed photos will unfortunately require more compression than a less-detailed image (such as your test photo that contains many large smooth areas) in order to get the same filesizes. It's a little hard to follow at first, but you will get the hang of it. It's always going to be a compromise with JPEG images to balance image dimensions, image detail, compression level, color (red, for example, almost always shows some JPEG artifacts even at the lower levels of compression!) and the final filesize. The downside of higher compression is that image quality generally suffers.
