I've heard several times of people having problems posting pics. Just trying to find out if this is a wide spread problem? even pics i already have on here wont repost, I checked that to see if it was a file size problem.

Also I've heard people say they make pics smaller, any hints on how this is done would be appreciated.

Thanks Cowboy.

As for resizing pics, it's a matter of opening up the image in an editor (Photoshop, Fireworks, etc), and using a "resize" tool in one of those programs to make the image about 800-1000px wide or tall. ;)

Ya, resizing really big pics also saves us TONS of web space and bandwidth...

It's a considerate thing to do, when posting pictures in either the forum or the gallery.

No sense in pics being bigger than is required for the task. ;)

Another thing I had noticed was that the system did not like my pics if the extension was missing. I kept getting a file type error. I added the .jpg to my file name and all was good. (yes it was a jpeg pic)

How small does a pic file have to be to post it in the gallery? I've resized mine so they're all less than 2MB each and I still get the message "file size too big".

Try making the width of the open file 1000 pixels or less. A 2mb jpeg is potentially HUGE if the jpeg compression is set to medium or less quality.

You really only need a 1 megapixel or less for screen viewing, any more is wasted.

Thank you. I'll give it a try.

Here are some free photo editing software suggestions.


Not listed in the article linked here but highly recommended by me for simple tasks is Irfanview. This freeware program at http://www.irfanview.com/ has an easy to use "Save for Web" plugin that makes resizing and compression options convenient to use.
