Okay, I'll mention the size when it's a large file, but that's not my site so I can't do stuff to it.<br>And by "cleaning up an image" do you mean like, shuffling the info into a compact space and stuff and reducing the colours and the junk etc. to make it smaller?

The guy got his stuff back and will be resuming trading 13 miles out to sea. So, if you want cheap fags and booze, then go to Brighton and hire a boat.
