Problem uploading photos
Dec 19th, 2010 at 6:11pm
 
Hey, I wanted to upload a photo and despite making it really small, a message comes that says: This attachment causes the attachments directory to exceed it's maximum capacity by approximately 20 kilobytes and cannot be uploaded.

This has never happened to me before. I shrinked the photo to 24 kb and it still says it exceeds the limit.

It sounds like the problem is with the forum software, and not your photo. Try making a photobucket account and posting the photos from there. Now that I have one I enjoy how much simpler it is to post pictures and resize them on the fly.

This sounds way too complicate for me... It used to work fine before. Why no more now?

I got the same message today. Perhaps we've reached the maximum allowed size for attachments?

well according to the forum software we are pretty close to the limit but there should still be nearly 9 mb left (lol yep just the 9mb).

Not sure how or even if I can enlarge the file uploads size. Might invole housekeeping - in which case I'll start with the larger files. A lot of members don't bother to resize images before uploading (paleoarts you know who you are lol)

There is no excuse, I've posted the software and howto in the useful utilities section and mentioned it no end of times.

there might be an attachment limit function I haven't found yet.
if so I'll implement that and look into ways of getting some more space

lol that was simple enough.
I've added another gig of space and limited the upload file size to 500k.
So you will need to resize images to something sensible before uploading. 800x600 works best.
use photogadget

Since video is now done through youtube we no longer need the larger attachment size.

Is any way to put more than a one picture to a single post? Using the slinging.org server of course.

Not that I can tell, but I'll look into it. Other sites, like photobucket.com, work well. Another option is to make a windows live address (example@live.com) and register for Sky Drive. It's 25 Gigabytes of free storage online that you can access from any computer and link to.
