    Hi all,

    Does anyone else have problems uploading pics? Anything I upload seems too large unless I crop it way down, which means taking a picture from quite a distance and losing detail. Minor quibble, but I haven't been able to share any worthwhile pictures in ages, is fine on other forums though.

    Pics are from my phone, no camera or professional equipment

    Best way to resize the original is to use MS paint or similar, I had this issue, image was taken and resized to 20% seemed to work for me, all detail was retained.

    If you running windows then use this tool: http://www.bricelam.net/ImageResizer/

    After you install it, just right click on photo and choose resize, then upload the smaller photos, simple ;)

    What I normally do is upload the original image to imgur.com, then I copy the link of "Huge thumbnail". Imgur resizes that for me. It adds a "h" at the end of the link and add .jpg

    Tip: Create an account and you have all your images uploaded there.
