Hmm...I'm trying to post some jpg pictures from the event but it isn't working.  Am I doing something wrong?

I've had to upload two pics at a time, then go back and edit the post to add two more.
Tedious, but it works.

The easiest way to post pics is to upload them to Imgur, and grab their pre-formatted links to embed them into your posts.

wrongtargetken, I finally started doing it this way ^^^ and it took all the frustration out of posting AARs.  I only wish I'd know how to do it sooner!

The most common problem is trying to post images that have too large of a file size. Most cameras and phones take such high-resolution photos that you could fill a billboard with them. The resulting file size is so large that the forum can't handle it, and it rejects the upload. Generally speaking, you'll want to keep your image size to be 1024 x 768 or less (if in landscape orientation), and 768 pixels high or less (if in portrait orientation) for uploading to the forum.

Another common hiccup is that photos sometimes get rotated sideways or upside-down. This usually happens when trying to upload photos directly from a phone.

The easiest way to fix both of these issues is to do what has already been suggested. However, if you have photo editing software, you can also do the same thing.
