    I was just trying to help you out.

    It happens that I do agree with you, and the lack of photo support is probably one of the reasons this forum has stayed small. Maybe start a thread at the help desk? Or ask why it can't be done?

    If it aggressively compressed the pictures, it could cut down on the bandwidth, which in turn would save the forum money in the long run. JoAnna @Queen of Blades should run this by @sparky5693

    Figured I ought to post this here from another thread. It's a good idea.

    I have never had a problem posting a picture here. Sometimes, I have to reduce the size, but it’s not difficult.

    If I'm on my PC, I just reduce the size using Gimp, after editing it, also using Gimp. On my phone, I use Tapatalk to access this forum and it automatically reduces the image.

    In previous posts I recommended a size reducing app, or a forum image host like www.imgbb.com

    I don't know anything about forum software, so I don't know the difficulty or cost involved. If it's a simple plug-in, I see no harm in exploring the option. If not, no big deal. We will continue as we always have.
