I'm having problems figuring out this upload thing. I've read the info on the requirements for file size. I'm using Lightroom 5 and my original photo is 3600x2536 and is about 5.5mb.

Using Lightroom I go to the export function and select resize to fit long side and put in 640 and hit export. When looking at the photo before uploading it doesn't look no where as good as the original photo. However, I see many photos posted that look great. What am I doing wrong. Thanks

I use PS CS6 "Image Size" to resize the long dimension to 800px, then sharpen, and then and save as jpeg with Image Quality 12 (max). This often gives an image file size less than the 550KB limit. If it's too big, I re-save with lower jpeg IQ. I sometimes post larger images (in terms of pixels), in which case the jpeg-save IQ has to be lower. Here's a recent example at 1200px,
