How to post photos - I read the guide on how to do this, but its not working for me.

  • When I upload images to IMGUR and use the direct link (putting the image address as the source, using the little image icon at the top of the text editor), it shows up in the preview but when its posted, it says the image is blocked.


    When I try to upload as an attachment in the tabs at the bottom of text editor, it only allows sizes of 1mb. I'm not a Microsoft Photoshop and have no clue how to get these images under 1mb.

  • Hi, guitarchiq.


    If you have Windows 10, open your picture with the Windows Photo app.

    1. Right click anywhere in the picture
    2. Click Resize
    3. Click M and then follow the screen prompts to save a smaller picture.


  • Even easier than that, and you can be precise with the target size 1st time:


    Double-click image to open with "Preview"

    Option-click the File menu

    Choose "Save As"

    Move the "Quality" slider towards the left until you reach the size you want

    Save over the existing image or with a new name


    If you find the image cannot be saved as tiny as you'd like, go to the Tools Menu and choose "Adjust Size", enter a smaller width value (top field) and the height will scale proportionally. Now try the Save As procedure again and the file-size range will be lower.




  • Thank you, I figured it out.
