How do you post a photo into a thread ? I tried to post a jpeg file size 3.77 MB but nothing happens  :-\ The max size seems to be 7MB which is almost twice what I am attempting.

Jpg is a compressed format
Try a simple format like bmp
Load the picture in paint
Save it as bmp
When it is to big,  try to make the picture smaller in paint

There should be no problem posting a jpg file as long as it isn't too big.

Resize your image using Microsoft Paint or another image editing program you're familiar with, Terry.  Try modifying the horizontal pixels to make it smaller and maintain the aspect ratio.  You will need to adjust this number to get the image to upload.  :)

For Forum attachments there is no need for a JPG to be bigger than MAX 400kb or less and the quality is still very good.
I use and early version of Photoshop to do all my adjustments.

Now that we have so much more space on our server, maybe it would be a good time to raise the size limit? Like on Facebook? People don't post many pictures, so I don't think that would be a problem. unless there is some other reason to keep that size limit?
