I can't. I hate computers. I select manage attachments. Browse. Find the file. Close window. post. What am I missing?

Size is usually the culprit. right click on the photo and look at the size.. anything over 150kb will be denied.

When you find the file and click upload, leave that window open to see if the file uploads successfully or if it was denied.

Nice thing about the gallery software is it does it for us... need to be a member to post in the gallery though.

Let me know if there is anything I can help you with Farnham

1.36 mb is too big. If you don't have Photoshop, you can get Gimp for free. You need to downsize the picture to make it suitable for the web.

1000 kb (kilobyte) = 1 mb (megabyte).

Yeah. it's way too big. 1000kb in 1mb.

You can try and use windows to resize but it's not going to guarantee that its small enough. I usually use 640x480 for posting to the web. But it all depends on the resolution you've taken pics with. Usually I take pics with my camera set to 640x480 since all i really ever use it for is posting images to the web. Here is a step by step to help out.http://www.freeimagebrowser.com/foru...-explorer.html

Photoshop is popular for resizing and modifying images

You could try this freeware I came across too. http://www.freeimagebrowser.com/article2608.html

An Mb is a MegaByte, KB is a Kilobyte, MB is larger than a KB by a factor of 1000.

Right click on the photo and a little window pops up, select "Open With" then "Paint" in the next window. the photo will open in Microsoft Paint. On the top bar click on "Image" then "Stretch/Skew" and a window will pop up. You can shrink the photo but putting numbers smaller than 100 in the "Stretch" textboxes labeled "Horizontal" and "Vertical". Try 25 (25%) first, save the image (use a new file name so you dont shrink the original image) and then check the size. You can repeat this until its small enough.

Here is the place to get Gimp for Windows. This is the open source version of Photoshop. Download here. FAQs here. It looks kind of complex, but there are lots of people who use this rather than paying Adobe.

I use Photoshop for most things but for a quick resize or crop this is a great free and simple to use viewer/editor IRFANVIEW.

I use Paint at work, which actually works fairly well. I think it's the only software ever that I use 85-90% of its capabilities. Anyway, it's image, stretch-skew.. then type in 30% and see what that gets you. Gimp is clearly better, though. hth...
