Tell us what uploading program you're using. Also, are you on PC or Apple. Do you upload direct or via an application on your computer. Details please.

I'll give it a go.

Not sure what the limit on photos is but a photo taken with a 10mp camera for example is meant to be printed as a photograph so is very hi-res. For a pic on here you want it sized like a newspaper of magazine so you can see the text around it.

I put my pix in Microsoft Paint or Picture Viewer and then resize (30% is ok for on here).
Alternatively the picture sites like Photobucket also let you edit the pictures by resizing. Then add the link to your sub.

Just make sure you keep a full res copy of the original !

Hope this helps.

Limit on here is around 500kb...search on google for a free online picture editor if you want to change the resolution or if you run windows "paint lets you resize...

Looks like a sony DSC-WX7 photo, I would hazard a guess it was taken on 27 April at 11:33am;-)
You want to look for compression settings and crop the pictures a bit.
This is a bit excessive but it's cropped and compressed 50%, so it's under 10% of the size. The bike frame is the same size.
