    I'm unable to post more that 1 photo at a time? I get a message that the files are to large? The photo's are ,jpg, any suggestions? thanks Richard

    Third party hosting and post a link to the image.

    If you need some assistance, let me know and I'll try and provide some examples.

    I own my own domain and host my photos myself.

    In the past, I had Photobucket and they often would remove images from my account that were my images, with no explanation.

    And then they began blocking any third party linking without subscribing with steep fees. (well after I started hosting my own).

    I figure it is a matter of time before other hosting sites follow this behavior.
    (I have no trouble with capitalism, but fair warning and maybe a stepped program of pricing, giving some "credit" to those who helped make them successful....)

    Resize your pictures prior to posting.

    TrunkMonkey & flynbuick,
    I am not a computer wise individual. Yes, I could use some "detailed instructions" (the simplest) re. uploading more than 1 photo; if you have the time, it would be appreciated. Richard

    i use "paint" for resizing,
    do you have a Windows PC ?

    The problem is the photos you are trying to post are too large. 800 X 600 pixels is a good size for posting. You need a photo editing program. I use Irfanview. You can download it for free,

    Once you have the program, editing pictures is easy.

    MS Paint also works just fine for resizing pics. It's on most PC's...

    Click Upload a file
    Click on the folder on your computer where the picture is saved such as " pictures"
    Click Open
    Click either thumbnail or Full Size
    Click on Post Reply

    If you want to post more than one picture in the same post or conversation hold off on clicking "Post Reply" until you repeat the steps set forth above for each additional picture.
