Post by tallkan » Fri Nov 14, 2014 2:47 pm

Am i suppose to use the "upload attachment" function to insert a picture in my trip report? it's limited to 1mb. is there some trick to resize all my pictures? how do all of you do this? Its so complicated, it makes me even more appreciative of the reports that are posted. Thanks everyone!!!

I've found it's best to upload your photos to one of the free photo sharing sites (e.g. Google Photos, Photo Bucket) rather than here and inserting a link to the photo (use the "rimg" button) in your report.

For detailed instructions, go here: viewtopic.php?t=103" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
I'm still rather convinced that you can achieve more than you've ever dreamed of if you just lower your standards.

I'll kick it up to 2MB but no higher. I have to keep that limit low so we don't blow our bandwidth ceiling.
