    Lately when I try to upload a photo I get an error that the file is too large.

    Is there a new file size restriction?

    Yes, but it's supposed to be really really large and yet when I try to upload pictures which are clearly smaller then the parameters, both on MB size and Pixel dimensions, it gets rejected as being too large. A screen cap of my phone gets rejected for being too large, when I know it's not.

    I tend to just resize them so they are 640 or 1024 wide by whatever and they'll go through.

      Yep, I tried resizing one this morning and it didn't go through.

      I guess I'll play with it a bit ..

      Thanks ..

      I just checked, because I couldn't remember the exact parameters for images, because I tried so many variations trying on vain to get all images to be accepted. The current parameters have been the same for nearly a year

      Max Image Size: 10,000 KB (10 MB)
      Max Pixel Dimensions: none set (unlimited)

      Buuuttt that ain't what's happening

      Yes, we've been over this already. I've given you a simple workaround that will allow you to post pictures
      The powers that be didn't author the forum software, and they can't alter the software to behave differently in a way that suits you. You stated a problem, and I responded to acknowledge the problem and as to why it's a problem. I've been dicking around with this very issue for 2 years. Don't you think that if it could be fixed that I'd have fixed it by now?
      The Internet gives you 3 options...

      1 - Resize your pictures to make them postable.

      2 - Contunue to whine in vain.

      3 - Go to Facebook
