I'm not sure why I have such a problem trying to post a photo.
I resample the photo in corel photo-paint to 720 pixels, export to my desktop, click "attachment", then "add file", select file on my desktop, click "open"...loading green bar indicator slides to right , then triangle w/exclamation shows up (?)...no photo
what am I doing wrong ?

Full sized photos from a digital camera or iPhone are way too large for the web and must be resized. The phpBB software does not automatically resize them like Facebook.

In the earlier version of this Forum, we had the maximum file size limited to 750 pixels. I increased it recently to closer to 2000 pixels.

Most computers have a photo editing program like Photoshop, Elements, PixelPaint, CorelPaint.

Open a full sized photo in one of the programs, save that version as a new file with a name of your choice, then resize it to 1000 x 1000 or so and save that one.

Lastly, you will need to hit the Place Inline button to put your photo into the reply box. The software will put the image in the spot where you had the cursor.

Note: Since I modified the image limits, I deleted a few comments that referenced the old 750 pixel limit.
