Help: Uploading Pictures
« on: October 28, 2018, 07:51:12 PM »
I just posted a for sale but I cannot upload attachments.  It say's my file sizes are too large.  How are other folks attaching pictures or reducing the size of the file?

Google "Resize jpg" and there are a whole bunch of online programs that will reduce the size of your file.

I use MS Paint and resize the JPG to about 500KB size.

Oh, wow. I did not realize that MS Paint was still around.

I don't think I have used that program since Windows 3!

When you click the post button, then click the + on Attachments.  It opens the Attach: section and then choose the file.  If it is under 600KB should see it or a small version of it after you post it.
