Hi Curtis
Can I add more that one photograph to a comment on this Forum?

In digging through the Forum settings I didn't see a limit on the number of images, just size. Give it a try.
Thanks.

Not enough Curtis
I just tried to add a photograph 268 Kbs in size, and got the comment back too big. I think you now allow about 190 Kbs.
I use a Nikon DSLR set to give a reasonable resolution and then Photoshop CS3 to edit were necessary.
I use the Nikon a lot to record how equipment goes together and to assist in identifying components to send photos to suppliers.
To cut back to 190 Kbs I would really have to knock back the resolution I start with.

Hi Curtis
Just tried to add a photo 87.3 Kb to my ProTrack repair details and got the comment file too big 192Kb max.
So I guess the system is adding on to my first photo.

Okay. I found the image attachments settings for the forum. I have bumped the max image size to 250kB and the max attachment total to 2Mb.
This should do the trick.
The JPG quality setting used from PS CS3 does not need to be very high. Probably no need to go above 70%. That should help with the file size issues.
Thanks.
