Help posting pics
« on: July 20, 2017, 04:51:35 AM »

Just wondering what I'm doing wrong...trying to post pics of my cabs, but the max attachment file size is 1MB, I have my phone's camera settings as low as they'll go and the smallest I can get my file size for my pics down to is 1.1-1.2MB.

Any ideas?

You will need to resize your photos.  I use 600 x 800 pixels.  You can download a free photo resizer to do the job.  My favorite is Faststone Photo Resizer.  You can get it here:  http://faststone.org/FSResizerDetail.htm

Lap-rough, why watermark? Security reasons of some sort?
