How do you post pics with large file sizes?
Crop your pic till it is taken
If you're on a PC, download something like Irfanview, and use the Image, Resize/Resample option.
Irfanview is free. Find it with google. (Alternatives are available.)
Ok, I'll try that. I was on the pre veteran thread last night and the pics other people were posting where large files, but the system wouldn't let me post mine..

They all have resizing/cropping tools online and you just copy and paste their IMG codes into your post after you upload the images. It also doesn't fill up your attachment quota at ECF that way.
You can also use the Windows "Paint" program to reduce the size of the file.
Just open the photo with Paint and then save it using a different file name. The saved photo will have a smaller file size than the original and still retain its original picture quality.

it is not the same as avatar, avatar is between 5 or 20 kb more or less, images can go much bigger.
