Attachment Size
« on: January 02, 2014, 01:07:53 PM »
I am trying to use attachments, and this is what I get:

Your file is too large. The maximum attachment size allowed is 650 KB
Your file is too large. The maximum attachment size allowed is 550 KB
Your file is too large. The maximum attachment size allowed is 200 KB

Every time I resize the picture it keeps on lowering the allowance.

Why is that?

Don't attach to the forum -- the software is buggy and what's the point?

A free and easy way to insert images is to use http://imgur.com/ which works quite easily with mobile devices. But if you would like them stored permanently, I suggest you use a Google account or Photobucket to manage them forever (or however long forever may last on the web).

Simple Image Upload is a nice way for technophobes to upload images to an outside server.  Though it's not explicitly listed as compatible with RC4, so I don't know whether the admins would have any issues installing it.  (It doesn't require server-level access to run.)

But yeah, just Google "free image hosting" and pick the one you like best.

I'd have to go to a place to upload my pics. Some of those websites (most, actually) do not work with my phone. I found "attachments" works and it seems to here because my phone would tell me itself if it doesn't work. Hasn't done that.

Why I haven't posted a pic in who knows how many years.

Oh, just to let you know: the place I go to crop and resize also does uploads, and I did do that once for here, and it didn't show the pic, it showed a little green box.

If you look at the Attach box, it says the restrictions are:
  • 4 per post
  • 550 kb total
  • 200kb individual
So maybe you were getting both the individual size and the total size?  Really you're best off just looking for something that's phone friendly.  There's probably even an app.

I have too many apps. 7 "pages", most of which came with the phone and it won't allow me to remove some of them. Like a NFL game. I'm not really into football why would I want it?

Anyway...

I'll try your suggestions later. Right now I'm riding a headache and I forgot where I put my generic allergy-free aspirin. (I'm allergic to 95% of all aspirins--which sucks 'cause I get headaches often--could explain why I'm grumpy all the time but then again...maybe not ;))
