Sorry chaps. There has to be one and no surprise its me !! I'm already having problems uploading pictures. Keeps telling me they are 'too big" ??? Need resizing ?? With Postimage its not a problem ? Am I doing something wrong !!
There's always one! :lol:
You'll have to use a photo editor or similar programme to reduce the file size to 2MB, as Beakster explains in his first post.
I use the Microsoft's photo editor to reduce the photo size by the required percentage. For example, if the file I want to upload is 4MB.I reduce it by 50%. There are probably loads of other apps to do a similar job that you can download from the internet. Hope that helps.
:goodluck:

Hi Nick, try installing Image Resizer:
https://www.bricelam.net/ImageResizer/

This lets you resize you pics easily before you upload them.

Thanks for this link mate. I will give it a go and see how I get on with it :? :lol:

Andrew mentioned some resizing apps too but i have already given up on one of these and unistalled it :lol: :lol:

I will have another play in the dark world of photo resizing. If you dont hear from me in the next few days send out a search party please :wave:

Beakster, as already has been said the forum is looking really good now. Thanks for your time doing this for us.

All the best

Are you removing all the parts of the link up to and including the = sign and after the &?
For example, you link above is youtube.com/watch?v=Vk1qYDFJjZs&feature=youtu.be
You need to be left with Vk1qYDFJjZs and put that between the [YouTube][/YouTube] tabs in your post.
You can check you've got it right by previewing your post before submitting it.
