Title: Posting pictures
Post by: Bryan on May 19, 2019, 02:39:24 PM
When I try to post pictures it always tells me the files are too big.  What can I do to post the pictures.

Make them smaller!   ;D

Your camera or phone is set to take big pictures.  most of them are set to do that by default.  That is why the files sizes are 1 - 2MB each.  Images this big are good for posters and other big needs but way too big for most any monitors that people would have.   Even 10% of that is pretty big for a monitor.  There are two choices here:
1) Change your camera/phone to take smaller pictures.
2) Once you take the pictures use your camera/phone to resize it to a smaller size. 
Note that smaller here does not really equal worse resolution as far as most things are concerned.  It just means instead of being 24"x30" it is 8"x12".

I didn't think you could post pictures on here directly anymore I thought you had to use a 3rd part host

You can post images it just won’t allow ginormous sized images.  When you open a posting it will tell you the limits.
