Hi
VIP member. Love just uploading file but could not do so with my last image. A pair of conrods! Server said can't cope image to big. Came in at 2.1mb changed it via a mailing my son lol came back at 1.97. Loaded fine. Can't fathom it as I've always just pressed the upload button before, done. Bike background must have more info than a pair of conrods.

I typically prepare my photos with a photo editor program by first rotating and cropping as required to eliminate unnecessary background, then resize to 800-1000 pix on the largest side. PhotoScape (free) is very good about saving the resulting .jpg image at about 100K. You can't beat that for efficient file storage; I have many thousands of project photos from several hundred restorations & re/builds that are hardly making a dent on my 1TB archive drive with 15 years of data...

Another free photoediting program is IrfanView. I've used it for several years.

Might be a new server issue...I'm also getting errors trying to upload photos I've successfully loaded in the past. Paging @Jerry Doe ....
