Well the DC I see on your main page is 1152 X 1600
but as you say scaled to 1170 X 1600

Now that is not a Thumbnail - the Prayer Card is
199 x 320 and I would be aiming to reduce the DC
image to something like that and Save AS DC-thumbnail
whatever name seems good - adding TH etc is what
some programs do.

I would not recommend using scaling as that does
not reduce size of download just the way it looks

I did not understand the Picasa page
