    Is there any reason we can't post pics larger than 2 MG on the site? My pics are always 2.01-2.10 and they say that they are to large. What can be done about that? I have many pics that are to large for here and would like to post more of them under my garage and profile pictures.

    Thanks,

    what size is the pic measurement wise? may need to make the picture smaller to get it under that mark,

    I use photoshop to resize my pics, even though I can post a 1900x 1700 pic, the size of it is usually under 100kb.

    a 2 meg pic is a pretty good size pic.

    ^ what Intimidator said.

    A 2MB pic, viewed at full size would be a couple monitors wide and a couple monitors tall. You need lots of megapixels for printing photos, but not for showing on the web.

    This site http://www.shrinkpictures.com/ can shrink images for you.

    Pick your pic with the browse button.
    Choose custom (1000 px wide is fine for a website).
    Don't choose special effect.
    Choose Best for image compression quality.
    Click resize.
    Click Download This Picture Now link above picture.

    photobucket also allows you to shrink pictures to a desired resolution.

    Thank you to all that helped. I do not own Photo Shop and I will try to minimize the pics when I take them. You guys are the best! Have a great week-end (what is left)
    Start Patrol with the police tomorrow and then I get to ride in a Police Boat and stop speeders on the water. If I see any Challengers parked, I will talk to them and let them know about Life. I have recruited one so far from facebook! :police: :pullover::bigcop:

    Thanks,
