    PhotoBucket is a site to store/display pictures on-line. They used to let non-paying users post links to their pictures on other sites, but no more, which messed up a lot of RR-Line threads.

    Pixels are the little dots that computers and printers use. Most programs that let you change picture size give dimensions in pixels. 800x600 usually works on RR-Line.

    451,000 bytes was the size of the picture file that wouldn't post. Many computers don't show you file sizes unless you ask. RR-Line only allows photos smaller than about 200,000 bytes.

    Thanks. I found that Photobucket seems to still allow me to post photos. It's a royal pain getting the addresses correct and there's a photo it won't properly orient, no matter what I do. But the dimensions are nice and the allowable sizes are still larger.

    That's not the kind of message I get uploading a file that is too large. I get something like:

    Request object error 'ASP 0104 : 80004005'

    Operation not Allowed

    /forum/outputFile.asp, line 13

    Your file is too large but I don't think that is generating the error. Do you get the error uploading the image or when you try to post your message?

    Your file size needs to be under 200k. The forum adds about 10 k thru the posting process. Reducing the picture so that the file size is correct makes the pic too small. You need to reduce the resolution down.

    With the Photobucket issues, I am forced to upload to website galleries instead of a central location where pics can be divied out as I see fit....

    Anyhow, in trying to upload here, I get "Invalid character or bad word in any of the text fields. Please correct and try again." no matter what I do... The photo I am trying to upload I downsized to max 800 pixels and the file is something like 451K. I removed the dash in the file name and even renamed it SB1.jpg.

    What the heck am I missing?

    ROFL! (Rolling On Floor Laughing) I'm with you, Kyle. My family keeps asking to text or send videos to my "smart" phone. To me, a smart phone is one that works.
