Attachment size

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know why the size of attachments that I can add to a post has been getting smaller and smaller? 
Right now it is at 30 kb which is too small for most photos, etc.
What determines how big of an attachment I can add to a post?

Edited to add: OK I just did a little research into the attachments I have posted so far and I was very close to the 5 mb limit. Need to delete some.

You don't need to upload attachments to this site, at least if they are images.  Which I assume is what you're uploading?

Anyway, there are a number of free image hosting sites.  You upload your image to these sites, they give you a link, and you use that link on the message board.  Here's a list of free image hosting sites:

Good info. Thanks. I also found that I can also just do a right click on an image on a website and "copy image address" and use that link in the post.

Yep!  I do that a lot, too, but it doesn't work well when you have a graphic that you can't find on a website.  Like one you make yourself.
