Very important to have the photos reduced in size to 800X600 pixels before attempting to attach them or you won’t be able to upload them to the Barn. I use a Photoshop edit program, but there are other programs and ways of doing this.

The secret might be closely kept but 1600 x 900-ish seems to be a size that always works for me. It's those buggers that are over 3000 in any dimension that get spit back.

If you have Windows, there's a program called PAINT, and it'll resize and rotate and save anything it'll open.

.

Unfortunately, later versions of "Windows" have something called "PAINT 3D" that I find very difficult to use.

You can usually email them to yourself and the will automatically get reduced to a size that is usable.

If your a Windows user download Photoscape it has a setting to save in 600x800, it can also due a bulk convert of pictures.

For an IPad I use an photo editor app from Axiem and just crop the pictures, then I’m able to upload.

From the link in post #2 above and then within the link, post #20. I discovered this recently and is simple. I have Windows 10.



https://www.fordbarn.com/forum/showp...5&postcount=20



- right mouse click on the picture on your computer
- Select "Edit"
- Microsoft "Paint" opens
- select the "Resize'' button
- Select "Pixels"

- put in 800 in top box
- Check off "retain aspect ratio" Attached Thumbnails
