Wondering if the attachments work for photos? Testing one here.

Well, that's quite tiny! Guess this might not be intended to replace FB.

Click on the tiny image...

If  you click on the tiny image, you get a larger image--the tiny image must be a thumbnail to save space.

For those of you wondering how Nancy added the image, make the image an attachment. You can attach up to 4 photos, but there's a size restriction for each post: Maximum individual file can't exceed 128KB, and total must be less than 192KB.

Thanks, Geoff. Also looks like you have to be logged in to see any member posted photos.

Increasing the resolution would be a big help if that is possible.  It's very time consuming to have to photoshop every time you want to post a photo and most people probably don't know how to get their traditional photos that small.  Thanks!

File size, not image size, is the key

I can't change the file size restriction on posting; that limit is set in the software. But often you can reduce the file size of the image significantly by saving in a format suitable for the Web. Try that instead of reducing the image size.
