posting a photo attachment 97KB

I edited my photo, (not sure if I can do it again because I'm not sure what I did!) but I go the the size to 97KB.  Tried posting as an attachment, and got the message to repost for security reasons. etc.  Tried four to five times, no change, when I tried to preview the post w/attachment photo, same message.  What am I doing wrong?  Tim

Tim,

Where on your computer do you have the photos located that you are trying to attach?

I know this sounds like a ridiculous question to ask, but I remember having a problem like you describe until I began placing copies of my photos on the operating system "desktop".  Now I browse directly to the desktop and am able to attach the copies to my posts.

Regards,
BP

I have the edited (reduced size JPEG) photo in my documents file.  I'll try sending that photo to my desktop, and maybe that will work.  It's a photo of work in progress of my custom Peabody What Cheer competition rifle.  Thanks for the advice.  Tim

Nope, didn't work.  I sent the copy to my desktop, and tried to browse it from the desktop, and got the same results, message about security reason have to repost the attachment photo.      Tim

Hmmm.  I turned off my Firewall thinking that might be the problem, and same old message in red, " resubmit your photo attachment for security reason, etc."  Never gets past the review posting.  I'm thinking it is this forum format that is the problem.  I edit, update, upload and publish to my website all the time.  Ditto for my Facebook.com.
Sure wish I could post some photo's of my Peabody project, work in progress!      Tim  Undecided   Embarrassed   Cry

Post your message and picture without a preview. I think that will fix it. You can always edit the stuff later. For some reason it never let me post a picture if I go through the preview, but if I just submit it it works fine.

Thanks 1/4 bore.  Worked like a champ!  I also found a new trick to reduce the size of the photo attachment.  I e-mailed it to myself, and Outlook Express automatically reduces the size for mail purposes.  Then I saved the attachment back in my pictures file.  Glad it worked because I have been trying for a couple of days to reduce the size to a manageable format.    Thanks Again,  Tim
