    Because the forum is a set width (around 950px), posting large pics can be problematic!

    Please can we encourage you to resize your pictures to a maximum width of 600px.

    The following website is particularly useful and easy to use.
    http://www.resize2mail.com

    Instructions for use

    1. Use the file manager to select the image. (gif and jpg only)
    2. Select either landscape (600×450) or portrait (450×600) orientation.
    3. Rotate the image if necessary.
    4. Click “okay”.
    5. WAIT – because you’re uploading quite a large image, it can take up to 3 or 4 minutes to upload, depending on your connection, size of the image and even the time of day.
    6. When the image appears, right click on it (not the gray crop box!) with your mouse and select Save Picture As… Alternatively you can click the small text link above the image, which will prompt you to download it.
    7. Save the image to your desktop then attach it to your forum posts as usual.

    Happy hunting!
