There is a file size limit that is worth mentioning.

OK, so help me out here.

With a limit of 800kb, the options are:

(1) reduce photo size when taken. At least on my phone, that's universal, I can't do it for just one photo. iPhone 12. AFAIK.

(2) take photo, upload to host, and link from thread, which is the same as what we had before. No real change; the service I use is pretty good in that I can hit a button and get a link with the HTML already encapsulating the link, then just paste in. But as far as I can see, it really hasn't changed significantly, same amount of work.

So I see a bunch of new photos, what's everyone doing?

If you use a computer : right click on your picture to open with Paint, resize the picture 50%, save. 5 seconds

If you use a mobile :
- android : https://www.samsung.com/au/support/mobi ... n-gallery/
- iphone : https://www.businessinsider.com/how-to- ... ?r=US&IR=T

With no size limitation, we can't provide free attachment to all members.

I would imagine this has been covered somewhere, but I cannot find it - how many photos are we able to add to each post? I'm not able to add more than three. I am using the "drag and drop" method, and making sure the photos are not over 800kb. I've also tried "add files", but still cannot add more than three. I am using my home computer (not my cell phone) to create my posts.
