Earlier today I submitted a record and tried to attach a relevant image (Scaeva pyrastri). I went by the DF Forum guidlines (max 1600X1200 pixels and 512kb file size - with which I have had no problems). After the first attempt was rejected I found that the max file size for this site is 256kb so re-sized the image to 500X452 and 107kb. This was rejected as exceeding the max attachment criteria.

Any advice would be appreciated, regards

Hello Neil

I suspect the problem is the website not you. We have had this problem before and I really don't know why! I will ask Stuart to look at this.

You can send the shot to me for verification roger.morris@dsl.pipex.com

Regards

Roger

I've just had the same problem trying to post my first hoverfly image/record. The file was only 106Kb and .jpg type if this is any help.

Neil/Tracy

I've found the best way add a photo to a post here is to first of all upload it to one of the photo sharing websites & then include a link to that photograph in your post on here.

I use Photobucket, but Flickr is another popular option.

Regards

Cliff

Bit late with this, but I find it easy to use Picasa to do the filesizing, free to use too.
Just select the file, click export and resize to 1200 pixels, that always seems to work, including on other websites, without a prob.
Hope this helps.
Ken
