Image Size Requirements

Postby Ranch Dog » 11 Feb 2016 12

There is no doubt that images within a post are always appreciated and welcome. The problem is that they consume a sizable space on the server. With the forum move last September, I placed some size requirements on the attachments but last week I had to make another adjustment as the storage of the images has gotten out of sight especially in light that most are using phones as cameras nowadays that are capable of some very high resolution images. Pictures are always welcomed but you probably will need to resize them. The new size limits are 240 Kib. If an attachment is posted that is larger than limit you will see this message:

You will need to resize your picture.

There is also a five picture limit per post.

How about a link to an image on a photo storage service, like Photobucket? Does the same restriction apply?

Edit: Well this original post is obsolete now that Photobucket changed their terms of service. I've changed my photo hosting service to Imgbb. It works much better than Photobucket.

The first time I pulled a trigger.

Nope! You are good to go. Only applies to images stored on the forum server.
