    You need to reduce the files size with some type of photo editing software.

    What is anysize? How large is your photo?

    There are dozens of free applications that will allow you to size your photo, or save them for web use.

    Your attachment can be up to 100k in size. That is more then big enough for most images. Most attachments are in the 30k size. Yours is 400k?! Look at the forum logo, that is 5k in size... you really need to shrink that image

    You can use Paint Shop pro to edit it.. another free app is infranview http://www.irfanview.com it has a option to shrink your picture down to a specified size.

    Joe has to limit the size of pic's can you imagine if he did not? Let's say it was 400k, so 5 pics posted a day not to heavy a load so that is 2 megs a day.. 14 megs a week.. 60 megs a month 700 megs a year and this forum has been around for quite a few years. And joe has to pay for the bandwidth (bigger pictures more bandwidth), more storage so higher cost and I believe I'm correct in saying Vbulletin (software that runs forums) stores pictures actualy in the database itself so that means alot larger database to deal with. So ALOT of drawbacks, and only saves us users a couple seconds to shrink down the pic or host it somewhere else. And keeps annoyance down for other uers, alot of people are still on dial up, do you know how long it takes to show a 400k pic on dialup?

    Try to get it under 50k.

    Kev, I know have the option to store attachments in a directory, not the database. I have not yet made the change, but plan on doing so soon.

    would that accept my pic then?

    The only way I could cut the pic down any more would be to stand back a bit more when i take the pic..but I can't cut down on the download any more with this computer?I sure didn't blow It by much did I?
    according to what I idicated?

    Well I want to hear from JOE first?

    Maybe JOE is going to allow a bigger max..I think he indicated such.I got a feeling It's because I haven't donated yet..If that Is the problem then I want to hear It from Joe?

    Nope, I have no plans on increasing the attachment size. 100K for images is more then enough space. Donating member or not.

    I don't believe my pic was too big?

    If Sherpa can fix them up then Joe could of also?I think the problem Is a donation
    Isn't It?Cause Sherpa didn't cut into the bicycle itself when he sent It.I'm not that stupid I can clearly see the problem Is one of a donation right Joe?

    That is closer to 129K in size. Still 30% larger then acceptable.

    Honestly, your picture isnt of the best quality to start off with. There is NO quality loss for web viewing between 100k and 400k in size.
