I'm trying to post a couple pics here, but my files are always too large. The maximum jpeg file size is stated at 19.5 mb. There's no way I can get 19.5 mb pics from any of my cameras. How do you guys do it?:crying:

A bit confused - do you mean max size to post is 1.95Mb?
I use Flickr photo hosting service, and I think most people here use photobucket. In flickr you click on the photo you have uploaded to the site, then click the "All Sizes" tab to choose from various sizes - then just copy & paste the URL into the Forum via the "insert image" button - looks like a mountain.
I think theres a good guide somewhere here in the FAQs section on how to post pics in WTF.
If the file size is too big, do you have any photoediting software at all - even the most basic will usually allow you to resize the pic prior to uploading to your photo hosting site.
Best of luck, and sorry if this doesn't answer your question.

Go to the home page and the very first item "FAQs and Guidelines & Rules" will lead you to some tips on posting photos.

BTW, nice to see another person from the Twin Cities on here.

@darkheart: try photobucket. it's free and there never seems to be any issues posting photos from there to here. that's the best I can suggest.

Thanks everyone..

It took a little trial and error (my learning style) to finally get it. I didn't know you can reduce pics on PhotoBucket. Learned something new today. Thanks again.:thumbup:
