Did you just try and post some now and it didn't work?  I just uploaded a photo and it worked fine.  Give it another try.

If you will look at the bottom of a posted photo, it will give you a number in KB.
Most photos I've checked are in the 3000 or higher range.
If you will look under a photo that I've compressed it will say 35.5 KB, that means I could post 100 photos just like the one I posted at 35.5 KB compared to one that is 3500 KB. Even at 1000 KB, I could post 30 of one that is compressed to 35.5KB's.
Check it out that is where the storage space is going.

Dan, you're right.  I thought the program was converting them to the maximum size that I set in the Admin section (640X480).  I guess it will help if everyone resizes their photos before posting.

I keep a program  that will re-size to a smaller picture, and, always do so.
I mail it to myself, post it in MY Documents folder, and, use that folder to upload here.

I've always prefered using Imageshack or Photobucket to post pictures rather than the internal method.  Reason for that is with the internal method, I have to resize the photo, upload it to my personal site, then manually type in the URL to each photo.  With Imageshack, I only upload them, then I can either choose to post thumbnails or create a link to a gallery.  Imageshack resizes it automatically and creates a URL that I can just copy/paste.  You can also click on it to view the "raw" image for a closeup of details.  I specifically disable comments because I'm only using it to host the picture file.  The picture itself is usually being used to ask a question on a forum.   

Drawback to these sites is you can go in and snoop at my other unrelated pictures as well.  Be afraid, be very afraid!   :o

Easy, I simply click "additional options" found below the message body. Then upload my pics right from my PC.

Such as the last engine I installed in my 1970 GTX. Or a co-worker who likes to sleep on the job. Pics like these can prove deadly at times :o

BDM, I didn't know you were a car buff!  I thought I was the only one here!
I am a lineman for the county and I drive the main roads. Searchin' in the sun for another overload.  I hear you singin' in the wires, I can hear you through the whine, and the Witchita Lineman is still on the line.

Ahh hem!!!

I can't drive, so have no cars.
However, I like 50's classics on down to turn of the century.
I really admire tha antique cars, and, trucks.

Major car buff.....Most of my Friday & Saturday nights were spent racing in the 1980s. Either at the track or otherwise. I used to build engines even when I didn't have a car to stuff one into. I think I enjoy the build more than anything else.

Car buff here, too.  We should start a separate topic for this and go to town.

I agree. Anything further should be taken to the Off Topic forum
