usually questions about images and guidelines are posted on feedback [In reply to] Can't Post

but I'll try to address a few things here.

I'm not sure what the pixel dimensions or the kb size of your image was but if I'm reading your post right, it was 84kb which is too large. Your pixel dimensions (by my calculations were okay - more in a bit)

The image has to meet both requirements. Not one or the other. So the 84kb would have gotten the image booted.

I wrote the tutorial (we had a lot of people very confused about images in general). I have maximum of 50kb in my tutorial. because that's what the limit was when I wrote my tutorial. Practically, it was not actually 50 so I think they changed the FAQ but didn't tell me to change my tutorial. I *knew* it had to be lower than 50 because I'd run into problems. But with all I've got going.. I just didn't think to change the tutorial. I wrote it but I don't use it, if you get the difference. It kind of escapes my attention. I'll have to make a note to change it.

As to pixel size.
I was a bit surprised to find the FAQs read: the maximum size of any picture posted should be 525 wide x 400 pixels high (or a better measure is: 210,000 pixels squared - width x height), but no wider than 670 pixels. The maximum file size per picture should be 45k. The cumulative file size of all pictures in one post should not exceed 225k (5 pictures of the maximum filesize of 45k, 10 pictures of a filesize of 22.5k, etc.)

The part in bold italics doesn't make sense. And I don't remember it being there when I wrote the tutorial. So I think that's changed. This either has to be explained to me to have it make sense or the wording has to be changed.

Mods... if you declare this better suited for Feedback, please don't throw away this reply. I don't know how you can transport this subthread to Feedback but I'd hate to have it just deleted. Night Wolf and I have gone to too much trouble working out our thinking to have it deleted. :-)

Night Wolf, I'd say, if you have more questions about image size, post them on Feedback. But really, your whole post (well, the part working out the image posting guideline) should be reposted on Feedback. There are things that need to be addressed by an admin and that's the proper forum (and they one they watch more carefully) for image posting guidelines.

Gotta run. Late for work. :-)
