Emailing photo from iphone, then open in CS5. I need to change resolution to 300 (per instructions for contest submissions). Instructions say 300ppi, 7inches in width (2100 pixs) should have file 1 MG. My files are about 4-5 MGs. Doesn't seem to matter if I send the image medium, large or actual size. Still comes out way over 1 MG. What am I doing wrong?

Double check the resizing parameters in Image Size, to make sure you are getting the exact image size you need.

Then try using Save For Web and exclude unnecessary metadata. Sometimes the metadata can be larger than the image data (especially if you are recording document history).
