Recommended file sizes for forum images:
Dimensions: 1000 px wide or high (depending on orientation) or smaller
72 dpi max
In order to keep the site a manageable (and affordable) size. The maximum size images you’re allowed to upload is 1000 Kb.
The large image I posted below is only 300 Kb.
If your images are too large, then you’ll need to reduce the size. You can do this with photoshop, or online at pixlr.com. It’s an online photo editor.
If you’d like to add larger images, there are several options.
First, upload your images to a place (Like Facebook) that doesn’t limit the number of images you can upload and allows large file uploads.
Open the image you’d like to share. Copy the link from the address bar.
Click on the Image icon above
Paste the link.
You can also paste links to very large images.
Another way to share images is to upload them to Facebook and then download to a folder on your computer. Facebook smushes large images when you upload. This may be the easiest and fastest way for many to reduce file size.7 Mar 2018 at 1:02 am #398283Keymaster
Personally, I like using Facebook as my gardening journal. It’s especially nice that they allow hot-linking.

Personally I’m not on Facebook and use Irfan View to resize my pictures .
My previous way was to resize as 1920×1440 often making 4 to 5 pictures during one posting.
For us technically challenged, what size would you recommend for multiple

I would recommend much smaller than that for uploading. 1920px wide is the recommended size for a fullwidth image. That size will cover the entire screen on most computers. The resolution is also important.
My standard size for web images that don’t cover the entire page is 1000 px wide or tall (depending on orientation), and 72 dpi max. Anything above that is wasted because it won’t be seen in full resolution anyway.7 Mar 2018 at 1:09 pm #398288Keymaster
Wayne, I saw you were having issues uploading yesterday. I increased the max upload from the standard 250 Kb to 1000 kb.
And I increased from 2 images to 4 per post.7 Mar 2018 at 5:11 pm #398295Participant
That’s great news.
