Photo attachments (Solved)

Post by foduga » Sat Jun 15, 2019 12:51 pm

Whenever I want to post something with a photo for better understanding I get an error: File too large. Could anyone tell me the acceptable size, pixel, etc of a photo to attach. Thanks.

You can attach cropped screenshot, like just an error message but not the entire screen. For larger screenshots please use an image hoster website like imgur.com and just use the link to the image here.

I have reason to believe the current limit is 200 KB. Most of the time, a cropped screenshot will indeed be below that and upload fine; if not, converting it from .png to .jpg often helps.

If your issue is solved, kindly indicate that by editing the first post in the topic, and adding [SOLVED] to the title. Thanks!
