No, nothing changed around the image stuff. Just verified - image/attachment limit is 10 megs still. Double-check the file size for me.

Tried again with a 5.49 MP picture and got same message about uploaded file too large for server to process. I'm just assuming that means the SCCoA website server, but maybe it's something on my end. I'll try another post from my phone instead of desktop computer.

I'm only able to upload really small images myself, even from a PC. Limit is set to 10 megs. . . Have a ticket open with server support.

Fix. I can upload a 9 meg file now. Though I do worry about it slightly as if we get a lot of LARGE attachments, we're going to be paying more for storage. . .

Pat,

I thought it would automatically resizes the images to around 500KB max like FB, so image size being stored on our server wouldn't be excessive. The real benefit is being able to upload photos (like directly from phone) without first having to resize them, not the ability to post larger image files.

Well, yes and no. It will resize the physical size of the image so it fits well on the screen. So generally, that will cause a decrease in image size for storage purposes. But if you had a 10 meg file that was already sized properly and just had a very high res camera or something, well, we're storing a 10 meg image.

Testing...okay seems to be working good now. Uploaded as 2.5 MB and was auto resized to 194 KB.

Thanks, David
