FWIW, I got the same "Oops, we ran into a problem" when trying to upload a 2.4 MB picture. No problems with two pictures at < 1 MB each.

Thx! I keep it simple doing cell phone camera pics... but even old... it's still a top rated camera phone and 18 MP on JPG settings :tup:🤯. I usually crop a shot, but still... full-res rocks and is usually >2 MB with excellent detail. Luv the fresh cannabis flower pictures shared here on FC 👍. My stable (so far) source for up to for high-res pictures has been Reddit at 5 MP (or more)... for the reddit subscribers. If you can't find a forum where a picture fits, post in r/pictures, lol.

But no matter the size limit, I still support any picture attachment here on the FC forum now. Thx so much FC! I'll try to post what I reasonably can here under the file size limit.

:peace: :leaf:

In the first post after vtac I recommended free irfanview. I finally posted an image and thought an example of what it can do in this thread might be helpful help.

This image has no data and is only 104.11 KB (106,605 Bytes)
Untitled.jpg

The image size I specified is 1024 x 768 pixies. :) Literally a couple of minutes work total.
Cheers

Irfanview is an excellent free image viewer that does a great job of compressing images for the web. Simple and fast with quality output.

AIR It will also strip EXIF data. Supported by the developer since the 90's
I can't second that enough...
With the "Save for Web"-Option (plugin for IRFanView) i am able to compress a 4MB picture to around 150kB without noticeable differences... AND it wipes away any EXIF-Data that could be used to identify anything regarding this picture (camera used, geo-tag and so on)

Temporarily, Isn't that message more than a day or 2 old....
Days, weeks?
Can't even cut and paste like the old days!
It's been up since shortly after the down time.
I can cut and paste just fine. That is unlikely to be a site issue though behavior is somewhat different depending if BB code is toggled on or off.

Second from the right top of reply window, "More Options" "Toggle BB Code"

Hopefully it comes back, too much work using outside sources to add a photo for me to bother anymore. It’s a useful tool for helping and explaining to other members. My participation until then will be minimal. :(

For the most part I continued to use hosting sites to save FC from having to pay for storage, but it was nice when you were in a hurry to just attach something directly...

Appreciate the consideration for FC's server's resources, but the image is stored on the server whether you upload it directly, or link to a hosted image. That way if an image host goes under (like many of them have), the image will still be viewable on FC.

This is a new feature? It didn't happen when imgur went down for us for example. Or, as I understand it, with other hosters that went away.

Oh. I thought that happened because vtac got them to relent on blocking us when he returned.

I guess I won't bother hosting anymore when you get your attachments back up if it doesn't help you guys. It is a few extra steps...

Haha as if they would ever relent or even listen to us! I think it was the new domain, maybe higher security helped?? It's a shame tinypic Links are dead though I had used that place for a while after lol

I would like to stop, but I still don't really even know how to use the image feature here, to upload my own, since I am always on my phone, no clue how to adjust photo size or even like see that anywhere lol

Yeah I know, that's what I use, more so than imgur, I'm saying I don't know how to use the upload feature here, to upload photos directly without a hosting site...
