I receive this message when I try to post photos in the forum. 

OK, so it refuses to allow me to copy and paste the error message.  Baiscally it says that my file is too large and over 1000 KB, they aren't even 600 KB even at 640 x 480

Not only does it delete every word I typed, which is frustrating, the picture shows up when I click the back button.  My files are not too large they are specifically sized for upload at 420 x 329 as the site stipulates.  This also happens when I attempt to upload using Tiny Pic, that just refuses to add the pic to my post.

Help and sigh, please and thank you...

Just a test.
Had no issues, so I'm curious what's up with your images.
Mind emailing them to me, the ones you want up?

Maybe not your computer Alix.
I added one from tiny pic and one as an attachment.
There was a setting wrong on the forum. It limited attachment size to 1000kb with a max attachment size of 1000kb. So I changed the max size to 5000kb. In other words you can upload 5 images as attachments to = 5000kb. If that makes sense.
Give it a test and see how you fair.

Yes sir, I can post one at a time, in another thread I managed to get both to post in a thread.  I think it is fixed as I can post 'em now.  Thank you.
