    What's the largest size file we can upload for a picture? I always get a message that it's too big even though I take the picture with the lowest resolution my phone will go.

    You need to crop them, I use a photo editor. I select 10:8

    Is it possible to automatically downsize the pics?
    I see pics (specially via Tapatalk or mobile users) waaaaaaaaaaay too big.
    It takes a wile to load, and It's not useful.
    Technically is not good.
    Or ecological ...

    I'm mostly a PC user.
    And my pics are always downsized via Google Photo.
    Same size, less weight.
    Fast and easy.

    Today picture of SOTD is 1200x800px.
    But just 113KB, via Imgur and after Google.

    This will help the forum management.

    Consider it read.
    I could use an answer, as well. Trying to post a pic from my phone - file too large.

    I only post photos from tapatalk on my phone. Not gonna download to the computer and resize and then upload again. Tapatalk gives 3 options for size before you post.

    I think most depends on mobile camera setting.
    Starting with 4000x3000px makes It not easy ...
    Your last pic has normal size / weight.

    I've tried lowest setting on my cheap phone camera and still always too large. I don't care for Tapatalk so do on my chromebook after uploading them which normally resizes them
