    Default How do I...?



    How do I post an image that is 7000x6000? I've tried reducing the file size down to 700kb... I just can't seem to get it small enough for the uploader to take it. Is there another way to post images that give you a preview besides adding it to the gallery?

    You can upload your image to an image hosting website like astrobin and then post the link to the image in your post here.

    I usually reduce my images to 800 pixels by 600 pixels. If I want the full sized image to be available, I will include a link to aAstrobin as well.

    I'm not sure where your 700KB figure comes from, but the maximum files size allowed for a JPG on here is about 1.9 MB. (I posted a large image a week ago, so I know this figure is current). 1.9MB is enough for a good-quality JPEG of 2000 pixels wide or so. So if you don't mind reducing the resolution of your image by, say, 3x in each dimension, that would be another alternative. But if you need it to stay 7000x6000 then that won't help...

    Is it file size or is it pixel count? On CN it's both; I have files well below 1.9MB... but I can't seem to upload them.

    Thanks!
