I have created a pdb file exactly like a friend of mine. He guided me through the process and I emulated him to the inth degree and ended up with the exact file. Problem is that his file is 579 KB in filesize and mine is 3.1 MB. Both files contain the same few pictures @ the same 600x600 pic size, determined by isiloX. Could someone shed some light on what may be the problem? If I save the same file with the pic size @ 200x200 (determined by isiloX, the file weighs in @ 619 KB. I am stumped and would appreciate some views on what I can do to fix the problem. We both use Win7 btw. Thanks!
