    It is recommended that you resize your photos to 500 pixels wide or less before posting them on the forums. This helps visitors with slower download speeds and guarantees that they will fit within the page. Here are a few ways to resize your photos before posting.

    Thanks for following our guidelines!

    I'm afraid there is a limitation on photo size Sherry as it adds extra cost, both on bandwidth and server space. Plus larger photos take longer for slower internet connections to download so I tried to reach a happy medium.

    Another option for resizing your photos is IfranView...easy little free program.

    https://www.irfanview.com/

    It will give you a simple resize window as shown here in a screenshot from the website.

    I use another free app called Image Size, that’s very easy to use. You can also see your picture as its being re-sized.

    I use the free site IMGBB
    You can post pictures as large, as I have been doing, or "medium" like this as I should do and will try to remember.
