All my photos are jpeg, however some of them are very large. I have purchased an external hard drive but that still to try and free up space but still no luck. It is only on my newer photos. any way to compress them? should I just start over with those pages?

Never, ever resize and overwrite your original file!
Before going to your intended size, you first want to crop your image to remove any unnecessary portions of the picture. After cropping, you can change the overall pixel dimensions to go even smaller.

how about zipping your files using winzip or a similar program just make sure you name them so you know what is in each zip files as it doesnt create a preview image hope this helps Pam
