- Please use optimizing the pictures ( that is reducing the file size without losing the resolution of the picture, usually a picture with a width of 700 pixel is sufficient) before sending it to e-pao.net . Some of the websites you can use are:
http://www.ezresize.com/ or any such photo optimizer websites
