NEW: Oversized image error message

The forum software had been changed so that each attachment's file size
must be 3 Mbytes or less.

Trying to load an image greater than 3 Mbytes will result in this error message being displayed and allowing the image upload to be cancelled out, the image cropped and/or downsized and then that smaller image re-attached, uploaded.

Existing images, already posted images, that are larger than 3 Mbytes will not be affected.

A lot of image processing "how to" information is in this board

including this topic which is overly detailed but contains almost everything about cropping and/or resizing


Well, I reckon I'm still in the clear because I always reduce mine to around 150kb, 900 x 800 pixels. LOL!
With the piece of garbage I have (Hughes) for an internet provider any bigger and It's like dial up, waiting an hour for something no bigger then your thumb to upload. And download aint much better.

Not at all. Server storage space costs money and the size limit set allows for perfectly decent photos without wasting server space.
