Tried uploading pictures of olympic coins from south Korea that I got from that country's booth at the WMF. Shame there seems to be a limit on the size. can't upload them.

Upload them on Flickr, Photobucket, Imageshack or Postimage and embed them here.

I dont have an account with any of these and I'm not keen on unnecessarily opening one up for a one-off. Anyways, I'm sure you'll get the pictures later

I kinda already wasted 20 mins trying to upload the pictures of the brochures till I realised this website doesn't take pics beyond a certain size which is quite frustrating.
Not sure how I can put this here. I was thinking atleast I'll share it at my local coin club meet anyways

I got the brochure of the commemorative banknote too. But again the same problem. Anyways, I tried

The key is to learn to play with pixel depth. This is not difficult, but the software depends on which computer you have. With a pixel depth of 300 dpi, you have reached the maximum of what can be shown on an average computer screen. A higher pixel depth is waste and you get to pay even for storing waste. Meanwhile, with 300 dpi you can post annoyingly large pictures here (please don't.) ;)

So read all about the software you need here. You'll learn things that will come in handy for other purposes also.

Thank you for the explanation; but it sounds oh so complicated ! Maybe I will try to read this later and hopefully learn somethjng from it. However it's quite low on my priority list of things to do this weekend ;)

Easiest way is to download a photo editing software (my favorite is Photoscape which is available for free download on www). You can increase/decrease image size as per your requirement and also adjust quality. It shows how much space the image will occupy w.r.t. % quality chosen.

As far as restrictions on file size are concerned, we have discussed it before too. :) Reason for such restriction is that someone is paying for the space from his own wallet (since we don't accept advertisements) and thus it makes sense to have a limit. Believe me, you can post a high resolution, nice image within 128 kb if you know the trick (look at some of the photos uploaded by Oesho, those are under 64 kb!). ;)

My suggestion:
Go to www.coincommunity.com

At that forum site, they have a very easy file converter to downsize your file without shrinking it down to the size of a postage stamp.  You can save the converted file on your computer and reuse the image here.
