Presumably your original photos are much larger. See if you can reduce the to nearer 124.9KB before you post - particularly the signature. My old eyes are having trouble with the small picture.
In case you are not sure how to get larger results from resizing - I suggest the following. Make several copies of the original picture. Resize the fiirst copy and save the result. Now check the size of the result. If it is not fairly close to the 124.9KBb limit( say 100Kb or more) try resizing the next copy with a slightly higher %age if the photo became too small, or a slightyl lower %age if it remained too big, save and check. Repeat until you achieve as good a result as you can.
