Default Posting photos..

I am getting incredibly frustrated trying to post pictures on this forum anymore. If I go into a picture resize program..I use an online program and set the resize to 375 by 250 which is the max width and height, and resize the photo when I go to download it here it still says the file is to large. I have gone in an set the max file size to 25 Kb and it still says the file is too large. I tried posting the photos to an album in my profile and it still says the file is too large. I run my internet by using my smart phone. I live in a rural area so my download speeds are slow..right now I am having to upload the photo from my laptop to the photo resizing service online, then download it back to my laptop and then upload it to the BWH forum only to be told the file is too large...grrrrr. there have been some cuss words today..is there an easier way? Help!!!!!

Lightbulb Tiny Pic

I stopped fighting with resizing and uploading to this BWH site.
I use Tiny Pic: http://tinypic.com/ Create your own account and upload there.
You can have it re-size when you upload.
Then just post a link to the photo Like this "http://i39.tinypic.com/34sgpwg.jpg" http://i39.tinypic.com/34sgpwg.jpg

Or Post the picture by posting a link like this: " [IMG]*http://i39.tiny*pic.com/34sgp*wg.jpg[/IMG] " (Just remove the Asterisks and the picture appears)


There are other sites that do the same thing.

Try this photo resizing program.
No need to upload a photo to resize it.

I use a photobucket account and link the picture from there. Then file size and all that doesn't matter.
