    ANY HELP?

    Thanx
    Do you shrink your photos before uploading them onto the site? You'd be able to fit a lot more on there if you did. Typically I recommend to half resolution, unless you want to start using an outside platform to keep them at full-resolution.

    Based on a few tests I have performed the picture should not be larger then 1.5 megs and the OOD site will actually shrink it a bit more when you upload.

    Why don't you just use imgur instead and save yourself all the hassles.

    No the forum is not running out of room, I just posted a few things a couple of day's ago or so.

    Make sure the file you are attempting to upload is smaller then 1.5 megs.

    When I first joined here I had issues trying to post pics, that's when I joined imgur. It really is quite simple. Join the site and sign in. Simply drag your picture onto the page and it will upload on its own. Then when you click on your picture a newer window will pop up like this.


    That took me maybe 40 seconds to get on the site, sign in, click on my images and then pick the one I wanted. Then in the window click on copy BBCode. Then go to your post here and simply right click and then click on paste. Voila, all done. Once you've done it a few times it will seem easy peasy.

    Cheers

    Thanks everyone.
    gbk I appreciate your frustration, but here are at least some options for you to explore. It's tricky to troubleshoot remotely when we can't see your whole set-up, but shrinking files has always been my "hack" for saving space on whichever platform.
