Not sure if you deem this to be the 'correct photo file' or not kiwikid, but my good friend Chris Berry sent me some pix of Klaus, which look like they should be here for the moment at any rate, his win being topical and all that!

John, that still looks enormous when you click on 'enlarge'. Try this version instead, and feel free to use whichever one you think suits and edit post accordingly. One day we'll get this picture thing nailed! Moderator message: I have deleted the photo that I posted. This one is excellent. Admin. PS: I also deleted the original ultra-large action photo posted by haflinger.
Those figures just refer to the number of kilobytes the file occupies. I reckon we can safely say that about as big as we want anything, is around 100 KB. That's what I'll work to from here on in. We still have the option to 'go large' if it's something like a programme scan where you might need to read small or indistinct print, or handwritten shale splattered results!
How exactly did you downsize the size of the photo? I have a couple of currentyl wall-to-wall size photos that I would like to Post but because they are so large the site refuses them.

Well, what I did may not help you. How you do it probably depends on the program you use for working with pictures. If this is, say, Windows Picture & Fax Viewer, I have no idea how you get that to downsize things. I use Kodak Easyshare (which is often anything but easy to use) simply because it came with my camera. As part of its regular editing, it routinely asks you if you want to save the edited photo as same size, 75%, 50% or 25%, plus there are other options like 'Best For Web', which in practice mostly turns out to be the 25% (or quarter size) option. But unless you have Easyshare, I guess that won't help.
Surely there's some member cleverer than me who can help John out with this - it will be to all our advantage, 'cos his pix are bound to be interesting!
Here is a short report from the Spedeworth International Ipswich site in regard to the GP Midget Car World Championship at Ipswich, Saturday, September 26 2009::: ::::::::::
Feature race for the visiting Grand Prix Midgets was their World Championship shoot-out and whilst only featuring a modest sixteen cars the smell of Castrol R was an experience in itself.
Points scored prior to the evening dictated the grid with an all- Pooley family front row in the shape of Daniel and Jonathan. Once again the red flag came in to play after another Pooley (Gordon) hit the fence. Jonathan was even more unlucky though for with just one lap to go he had the title in his pocket only for a broken camshaft to shatter his dreams and hand the title to German visitor Klaus Kilianski.
Their two races following the main event were relatively trouble-free with both Jonathan and Daniel gaining some consolation by taking a race win each
Classsified result (first 10 finishers):
1 - Klaus Kilianski (Germany) 2 - Phillip Retchless 3 - Neil Clarke 4 - Stephen Young 5 - Cliff Bunn 6 - Alan Herbert 7 - Toni Scheepens (Holland) 8 - Alan Buckland 9 - Peter Dorrell 10-Steve Dawson
::: Unless stated, all drivers are England.
Well done. The gpmidgets.uk has just posted its report of the meeting - a week after this one. And they have managed to spell Klaus Killianski's surname wrongly!

I hate to say it Toby, but so have you. I'm fairly certain Klaus' surname only has the one 'L'. Either that or I've had his name wrong in several world hot rod championship entry lists. Sorry to be a smarta***e! Have to agree with you though, that updating of that GP Midget website isn't the best.
You are correct. I did a google search and found a German website featuring him - it is Klaus Kilianski. Guess some modifying of previous Posts need to be done by someone else on here who doesn't seem to recognise the correct spelling as I didn't.
