    I just got a "image too big" message. What is the maximum image size that can be posted?

    Better instructions on how to post pictures....

    1. The easiest and best way to post an image is to first download or save that image to your hard drive. This varies depending on the operating system you use and where you are getting the picture from. Sometimes it is as easy as right clicking on the image and selecting save as then directing your operating system where you want to store that image. You may also need to use the snipping tool including in Windows 10 or a screen capture utility (most phones, tablets, and browsers already have that option built in).

    2. Images may include photos, scans, memes, cartoons, or other pictures. Most normal image formats are supported by this forum. If you receive and error or cannot upload an image it is possible to convert it to a file format that is supported by the forum. There is also a size limitation on photos as they are stored on the forum server. If you are receiving an error you can receive your photo in your preferred photo editing software or use MS Paint. I generally resize images to a width of approx. 700-800 pixels unless I want enhanced details, in which case I resize to a width of 900-1080 pixels.

    3. While some images are owned by you, and others are public domain, some images on the internet may be copyrighted and protected by law. Please do no post protected images without giving fully credit to the source of that image. Also, to comply with forum standards, please do not post images with profanity or obscene imagery.

    Photos of any female members repairing their leaking shower valves while wearing a bikini would be strongly encouraged by me.

    Just kidding!

    I get that “image too big” warning whenever my gut is hogging the whole frame.
