This forum allows attachments such as pictures and some file formats. The server has unlimited storage and there is no limit on the size of attachments.

When you are posting a message and wish to add an attachment, click on 'Attachments and other options' below the message editor.

This does not work with the Quick Reply function under messages, you must use the full size message editor which is the big green Reply button under the message.

There is no need to resize your photos or host them on Photobucket or other hosts. The Attachment function lets you upload straight from your computer.

The attachment is shown as a 150 pixel thumbnail in messages. Clicking on the thumbnails will open them full size.

You can also add attachments when posting from Tapatalk. This makes it really easy as pictures taken with your smartphone can be directly attached.

Qualey:

   There may be a way to have the site resize image but I didn't find it when I tried to place an
image here to check.  To my mind the nice picture of the bream with popper views much better
about 25% of the posted size.

It is a regular bluegill out of a friend's pond.  My pond has copper nose gills.  I have a Mac computer, and only the Mac software for photo editing.  I cannot figure out how to resize the picture, so that you don't have to scroll back and forth to see it.  If someone wants to give me a "how to" description, I would love to try it.

If you have a photo editor on your laptop or tablet, consider copying the image and resizing to 800 or 1000 pixels wide before posting. This is the optimal size for most laptop or tablet displays. 

If there's something you need more resolution on, let's say a fly you tied, then I suggest cropping before resizing.

Resizing before posting will make your images more attractive to the eyes and greatly reduce the upload time. Especially if you're using ATT.   :boese104:
