Thank you for your compliments.

I don't think I have cracked it after all, I tried to post another photo and again got the message the image is too large. Then I remembered this photo was part of a larger photo and therefore smaller. Oh well, back to the drawing board.

If you crop the photo slightly its a quick way of making it 'smaller' (less then 1mb) to upload. If you are on a pc you should be able to save it at a different size which changes how large the file is so you can then upload it :)

Yup agree cropping is easy when you know how. Just wanted to say what a gorgeous horse! Looks like you are flying. :)

"Too large" refers to the file size I believe. I often get it when I try to upload pics from my iPhone. I export them into a smaller format so they are less dense, then I can load the whole picture.

It does refer to the file size, but cropping reduces the file size quite a lot from even a small crop :) on my pics it does anyway

But what is this uploading? Can we avoid a link to photo-bucket now?

Yup. Next to your blue Post Reply button is one that says Upload a File. From there you can upload the photo from its location on your computer. When it's finished loading you insert it into your post either as a thumbnail or the full image.

Or if you don't click either of those and just click Post Reply, it will add it as an attachment.

Gattino - I too use Picassa for my pics, but it has mty real name whereas I use an alias on horse forums for good reason. And my Skib account was always with Photobucket.

Mine too Ale, even just the tiniest amount from the edges will reduce it quite considerably, apparently it remove a lot of data that's embedded in the file or some such techy info that I don't understand.
