I don't have my computer to hand Steve but I think if you right-click on the image you get a choice to.... Edit?..... Make smaller? Something like that.

Do a search on here and there are various programmes that reduce the file size....................people have also only sent in the middle 2 pages not the full document and still received the certificate.

Spooky travelled with us for 5 years and over 20,000 miles.He died aged 11 and is buried in Delphi in Greece.
Now that's a great age and a great adventure for a rabbit and I think he deserves a mention.

We obviously have the relevant stickers and AFAIK it has not even been looked at yet.....

But I am sure someone, somewhere will have had it checked....

Thinking of; Mavis, Ray, Sandra and Albert at this time.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Your file size must be huge because the Crit'Air website currently says the maximum size is 10MB.

From memory, it was a far smaller image allowance when I ordered mine on line earlier this year.

I donít think they will accept a compressed (zip type) file, you just have to make sure the scan is under a certain limit. Just set you scanner at a low resolution, they arenít worried about quality they just need to confirm the various emmisssion ratings.

If the webpage says the file is too big then, itís clearly too big!!

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if itís in a caravan!) I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

+1 for using Paint - I'd forgotten that's what I'd done.

I just sent them them scan of the inside page. I scanned it and saved it as a pdf so only 512kb.
I have had the sticker for over a year but havn't fitted it yet. This year I have been through France three times for up to a month each time and never needed it.
