    Hi Stewbies :stew2:

    @waretrop alerted me to the fact that the site may have been having a problem handling larger image uploads. Sure enough I found a setting server-side that was setting a bit too small of a limit on the size of uploads. So I increased the limit and if you have received rejection messages for your images in the past, you will see less of that now.

    Having said that, larger image uploads are more taxing on the system so I will monitor how it goes and if it's putting too much strain on the system I will dial it back a bit.

    Enjoy! Thanks again waretrop!

    To save taxing server capacity, I use the IMGBB hosting site for photos I put on various boards. It's free and presently I've about 300 on there.

    I use a phone app called lit photo. It can batch shrink and gives a variety of one click choices for resizing.

    Would you look a little deeper, maybe even another app on the site, that would take all formats down to your spec? Remove the choice is a site option.

    If you use a hosting site, if you choose at a later date for whatever reason, to delete it, it will remove it from the board.

    I rarely load a photo... its too much work for me. I can't use my phone to point shoot and load... and my camer also has to be resized to load a photo.
