help, pics too big?

Trying to upload pics and being told they are too big??? Never had this problem before. Says pic is 3.52 MB?? How do I make them smaller?

Do I need to upload to photobucket to work?

Thanks,
Jay

Hi,
my phone camera takes really high res pics too, 2-6Mb.
the limit on the forum i think is in the 100-200Kb range. [195.3kb i checked]

there are many way to shrink file size, may want to google it.
Also .png files will likely be too big. start with .jpg or .jpeg files and shrink those.

Any reason you don't paste links to photos in your posts ?

Hey there,

I see that this concern has been responded to, is there anything else we can help out with?

If I drag files from my computer into the "drag files here to attach", they just show up as little thumbnails too small to really see. I don't know about anybody else but if I click on the thumbnail I just get a black screen. In order to have it as part of the message a decent size, does it have to come from a website like photobucket or similar?

@FUN 9C1 what device/browser are you using? If you click on "Go advanced" under the text box and click "manage attachments" you can upload the files direct from your computer. Does this way work better?
