PS - The pictures are currently in jpg format and look great but have a lot of pixels and are a bit unwieldy for posting on the internet. What would be a better format for this purpose and how would I go about converting the files? Thanks.

...very nice Tim. If you were to make an ad with photos, i suggest taking some of the neighbourhood; such as the grocery store, bus stop, and other photos, that will add to the buyers sense that the location is practical. Close-ups on architectural details, are also a way to add more info to the promotion.

...the schools and daycares in the area, a list, is also helpful to have; a mother will surely ask for her child.

cheers.

You raise some good points. Here is a view from inside the Sofronis Frantzis supermarket, the local shop I patronise most frequently:

I can walk there in three minutes, but I am a fast walker, and on the way pass another small supermarket, a 24-hour bakers, a barbers, a pharmacy and various other shops. If I turned left at the first main junction, I would come to the 24-hour periptero in about two minutes from my home.

R-click on each of these images so that the little menu appears and choose "open with > Paint” and then inside Ms Paint go… Save As > GIF

If you’re not happy with the quality of the GIF then I’m afraid you’ll have to find and download a 3rd party program that downgrades a JPG from say 32bit to 16bit color, or something like that.

I have tried doing that, both selecting "JPEG" but it just keeps it in the same "JPG" format, and I have tried converting to "GIF" and the resulting file had even more MBs. Thanks for the advice, anyway.

What about "Other Formats" underneath GIF?

I'll have a look at that on Monday. Thanks. I am logging off now and having some quality time away from the computer until then. Cheers.
