Help with attaching images

#1 Post by Pete » Wed Mar 03, 2010 7:28 pm

Help Please,
I can't seem to be able to attch images to my post. It keeps timing out and I lose the entire draft.
I have saved all the images to be under 256K at 800 x 600 and as jpegs using photoshop.
Is this the wrong file format or is there something else I'm missing,

Thanks

Pete

Thanks T.J.
Still no luck.
I will try from another computer, but I don't think that will help.
Otherwise I will try again in the morning, this is getting too frustrating.
Me and Computers just don't seem to go together.

Pete I am no expert on computers, but always set my pics at 800 pixels wide, and if available a compression of 85%, this compression seems to sort any issues of size.

Hi Pete, if you are still having troubles just send me a PM with your number and I'll give you a call and step you through it.

Thanks for your help guys.

Thanks again
