Evecra...for some time now, every time we try to post pics, they are huge. The pic of me is like 25kb. You have to make it really small and at least less than 150kb. You will have to play with it a bit.

Would love to see your pics.

I have this problem also and not being a real technical person , I don't know the right way to fix it but have found a way that works for me.
First I choose what I want to share and email it to myself and then save it to my "pictures " and that resizes it and then I can post on here. I don't know if this will work with all kinds of programs but it works for me.
Hope this helps

I have this problem too, and I tried to use tools to make my photos less than 150kb, then it's ok to post. There's a limitation for photo size.

Evecra, I use the "Paint" program to re-size my pictures. Save your picture in a file, such as in your documents, then open the picture with Paint. Where it says re-size, click the horizontal button and put in 60, do the same in vertical. If this doesn't make it small enough, repeat the same procedure. I usually have to do it twice, and mine always come out the right size. I hope this helps.
