LT told me the same thing that SilverSage said, which is why he is not posting his dinner pictures in the dinner thread. Can something be done to avoid members from having to resize their photos?

I'm having trouble with pictures. I take them with my phone or tablet, then when I try to post them here, somethimes they say they're too big. I'm not sure what to do about it. Lately, they've all said that, so I haven't posted anything.
Sage, I use my Android 90% of the time.
After I take a picture it goes in my gallery.
I have an app called Photo & Picture Resizer that's free in Google Play.
I tap on the picture tool and normally resize to 75%.
It's very easy.
Good luck. 😊20201116_180615.jpg

I apologize. We are having that issue across the board on all my XF forums. Looking for alternatives but so far I am using a free iphone app called image size. I would think it or something similar is also available for android. It's an extra step but with these phones creating giant pictures 3000mb they are so much bigger than any of my forums can support. VB did a better job at resizing. I hope to find a better solution but for now resizing is the only game in town.
For PC I use Irfanview ...it's also free and so easy to resize with. Hope this helps.

I just did a test an now I’m confused. I can post this huge image off my I phone. See screen shot showing the size of image. It’s huge. I posted it as thumbnail with no issue. 44A2BF63-6647-4ABA-876D-F0E4EEF37BEB.jpeg647663B3-718B-47F0-BD73-B48FE06271C2.jpeg647663B3-718B-47F0-BD73-B48FE06271C2.jpeg

FYI ...moon is one of my backup accounts. I used it on my phone cause my doc pword is to long and I did not recall it.

But I posted huge images by posting as a thumbnail. It worked. enlarge the screen shot and you'll see it was a 3000 x 4000 pixel pic. huge. But attaching as thumb worked. Maybe that is how we can do larger images without having to resize them. Try that please and let me know your results.

I did that one full size. I had zoomed in on the pic so it's blurry but the pic is huge resolution and it posted. I'm trying to recreate the issue so I see it but it's working for me. So there is hope I can fix this.

How do you attach a thumbnail?

How do you attach a thumbnail?
Any image I attach it gives an option to select thumb or actual size. Thumb = thumbnail. It's in the upper left corner of the image I select. It shows up in a little image before I hit post reply.

I don't see that (thumb option) when I use the insert picture icon. I choose the "(Or click here)" option instead of the "Drop Image" option.

Let me try something.

I got this error when I dragged and dropped an image that was 3024X4032 pixels.

I have modified server parms so that larger images should be able to be uploaded. I thought it was a XF limitation but it appears it was a server side limitation.
