Problem uploading...
« on: February 06, 2017, 11:12:26 PM »
Trying to upload an image for the February contest.  I've tried jpeg's in 3MB, 2MB and 1.5MB but nothing happens (been her 10 years, so I think I know how to do this).
I tried putting a link to the picture I want to enter in the User Gallery, but then the image is ginormous.  Can't get the smaller image like other entries.

The size limit per upload is 3 megs. It's possible that the graphics app that you're using is outputting jpegs that the forum software can't handle. Try opening them in a different graphics app and resaving them.

If that doesn't work, email the pic to us at beamoderators@gmail.com, and we'll try to sort it out.

Found the problem... the forum software has an undocumented limit on the dimensions of an upload image, but I donít know whether itís a limit on the raw number of pixels (yours is 16,084,992) or on the height/width of the image.

If you scale the image down to 3000 ◊ 4529 @ 240 ppi, you should be able to upload it as long as the file size is 3MB or less.
