Hi Derwent, welcome to the Board.

I do not recognize the weight, which is quite distinctive in its design.

However, your images are too small to see the full detail. If you set the longest side of the photos to around 700 pixels, then "save for web" (or whatever applies in your editing program), the Kb size should be below the 125 Kb limit per photo. Alternatively, I recommend the free site at which is simple to use and produces good results.
