That is why, that is almost a meg. No reason for a picture to be that much.

A full page Jpg can usually be around 128k.
Not only does that take a lot of space, but also uses a lot of bandwidth.

Try a different format, or optimizing it.

If your on a PC resize your pic through Paint, it shrinks it a ton.
