    Pictures

    Iím building a beach cart out of a radio flyer collapsible wagon carcass and would love to start a thread showing pictures and progress. When I try to add a picture it says itís too big. Why?

    I canít resize,...it never works. And Iím suspicious of these resizing sites,...all they want is my info so they can spam me. And like I said,...they never work, and then even if I can resize a single picture it takes forever and then I canít find it when itís ďresizedĒ Useless.

    Why canít the forum handle pictures of a ďnormalĒ size...the size everyoneís iphone and ipad cameraís take them?

    The forum traffic would increase exponentially if pictures could be added easily.

    When "Bubba" set up this site in 2010, that was in place, and it functioned great until the buffer filled up.
    The pictures uploaded already have filled the folder, and there is just a little room left.
    I believe that's why we get the "file size too large" error.
    Anyway, Bubba fell away, and nowadays his interests are elsewhere.
    "Finchaser" & I reached out to him many, many times to request a 'fix', as that is way above our pay grade.

    Last year I bumped into him (just before the pier closed for reno).
    He was with his son who had gotten interested in fishing.
    I reminded him of this problem, but well, here we are...

    As a 'workaround' I do believe most of the image hosting sites are OK.
    You can set up a modest sized folder for FREE just by registering, or post a pic temporarily without doing so...


    Or you can do like I do and set up a page in Facebook to host your pics, then copy & paste them into the thread here...


    Hope this helps!
