Re: Can't Upload

Re: Can't Upload


You only got the phone, or do you have a windows pc?

If pc, then MS paint can load it and educe image quality.

Otherwise, guess you use an online tool.

Let me check.

https://tinyjpg.com/

https://www.reduceimages.com/

Another option is to convert the image(s) from jpg to PNG.


That shrinks them a bunch.

I use an app called Snapseed on my android. It's a decent photo editor and you can export at a reduced quality that this site likes better.

Re: Can't Upload


Site settings are such that a single file has to be larger then 10mb before the site should be giving you any trouble

When you try and upload, what happens?
