    Mine says the file is too big for the server to process even though it's almost half the max size allowed.

    Click on upload a file. My image is 460K and 1000 wide.

    Navigate to the image file, double click on the image. Click "full size".

    Done.

    BTW > I'm on a Windows 10 desktop, if you are using a phone thingee device, you're on your own :)

    Cheers, Don

    where are you uploading it from?
    If hosted, is that photo(s) public security level?

    I uploaded the first image from my computer.

    The other option is to create an account on something like Photobucket and set security to "public".

    Upload images to a folder you create and copy/paste the link from the image you want to post.

    I couldnt even get that far. As soon as I'd double click, I'd get the TPF server error. I'll just use PhotoBucket for now.

    Too big, both ways :)

    We used to be able to upload almost anything and the site software would resize for us.

    Of course, that takes time if you are on a slow speed internet connection :)

    Internet etiquette is in the range of 1000-1200 Pixels wide/400-700k range.

    A larger k image Doesn't look any better on a computer screen :)

    Anywho, I don't rely on a site's software to resize, I do it first.

    I use FastStone Image Viewer for that, it's a free download.

    Try to resize and upload again...

    Cheers, Don

    I thought maybe it was overall dimensions but the site pop-up window just says 4MB. Thanks for the info, I'll keep it in mind when uploading directly to the site.

    Make sure you use the upload a file button below and not the insert link option.
