Might as well try it as I already have them resized.

Well I tried..... I have reduced my pictures to less than 300kb and it worked on the Engine forum.... but 500 bytes..... my photo editing system will only go down to 561 and it becomes a pin ****!!!

What do I do John????

500 bytes - where do you get that request/restriction?

- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.

That is the message I get after going through the attachment Manager .... I select the file...... then I get the message of exceeding 500 bytes.

Will try to do a screen capture and post it.

In a white box on a black screen

"We encountered a problem. The reason reported was:
Files can be no larger than 500 Bytes.

Return to the previous page or use search if you are looking for something specific. "

You can use Windows Paint to resize pictures, and they'll go smaller than the requirement for posting here.
It doesn't do much else, but you can definitely resize pictures.

????

If you mail the pic to me, I'll check out the size, resize it, tell you what I had to do, and then I will post your pic in the DITY forum - right here.

Otherwise, we/you will have no idea what your problem is, and how you might overcome the problem.

I'll delete this offer, it you do not want me to help you figure out what your posting problem is.

I have not received an email message.

lederman@siena.edu

First, just try sending me a short message.
Then, send a message with the photo attached/included.

I'll let you know when I receive one or both messages.

I received one photo - it is a 2 to 3 kilobytye file (very small).

I could not get it to attach here. It said the file is too big.

"We encountered a problem. The reason reported was:
Files can be no larger than 500 Bytes.

I got the same message after resizing the file to 36 kb 130 kb and 233 kb.

I will keep trying.

I cannot get my files to attach.
Files that attached in earlier posts in other Forums.

I will try to post these photos in the General Truck Talk.

The format of the picture makes a huge difference. Start wirh your original size and then do a "Save As" and choose type jpg or png. bmp files are huge for the same exact sized picture. jpg or png will allow the picture to be much bigger and still under the maximum file size.
