I was able to get the photos to load now after manipulating the size a bit. Not sure if Jazz did something, or I just hadn't sized the small enough to begin with, but all is good for me right now.

OK, fixed. Sort of - there wasn't actually a problem. The board was just configured to not allow images > 900 px wide to be posted. This is done to save space on the server. I've upped the limit to 1400 x 2000 for jpegs, which should be good enough. If you need to post an image larger than that, you have two options:

1. Resize it on your home machine to < 1400 x 2000 and then upload.
2. Upload it to an image hosting site (imgur, flikr, etc) and then link it here.

Wasn't the size issue the whole point of attaching and then clicking the paper clip originally?

Nope. That's just the standard image attachment feature built into the board. 10 years ago 900 pixels was way more than adequate for image attachments. Now it's considered small. Mr Moore and his laws and all that.

I think what threw everyone off was the "900 x 0" limitation in the error message. What this really meant was that the image had to be less than 900 px wide, but there was no limit on height (0 = any height. The developers here will get it). So now the limit is 1400x2000 and the error message will say just that to avoid confusion.

Funny....the photo I was trying to upload was 12 years old. But I do think it was bigger than 900...

So you're collecting large high resolutions photos of 12-year-olds?
