    A couple members mentioned in another thread, they were having issues posting pics... I have been successfully uploading pics to this site for numerous years, but also have been unable to do so lately. I keep getting the "file too large" error message. Been using an iPhone the whole time... just wondering if I am missing something or if something has changed?? Any help/ suggestions is appreciated!

    Im with you, i think the sight may have changed formats, or my phone did. I never had problems before. Now after croping and limiting size i still can not post pictures.

    What I do is open up an app to resize my photos I can then resave and will be able to upload without any problems on here. I've had this issue on my new phone and my new iPad. My old phone I had no problem. I just assumed the photos are now more complicated with the new technology so therefore larger. Perhaps my thought process is wrong if you are having issues now and did not earlier.

    I've also had the "File Too Large" warning once in a while. I just resize it and then I have no problems.

    I guess maybe I just don't know how to resize a photo... they are all pics taken with my phone and they used to load without issue...

    I get the same message, I am using a desktop pooter at home. After re-sizing the photo a couple of times I still got the same (too large)message I finally gave up trying to send photos.
