If you took the pictures with a cell phone, they could be too large of a file.

Cell phones take humongous size pictures and the server times out trying to load them here.

Go into your phones camera settings and choose the smallest size setting it has listed.

POSTING IMAGES
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There really is no limit on file size currently.

However if you have a huge image file and it takes forever to upload, you will get a error eventually.
Such as using wifi or other slow connections.

Also even though there are no restrictions on size they do take more space on this site.

Even though the forum will re-size the displayed image size to 640PX width.
It does not alter the uploaded file size.
It still will take longer to display on the huge images. And slow down .


So to answer your question.
Size will depend on your connection speed.
That is just the nature of the beast(Internet)


FYI,
You may want to install tapatalk on your phone also.
For all your posting .

technically, there is no maximum image size that's been set for trad gang's forum software.  be aware that really large camera and cellphone images will almost always time out because the traffic on our server is so severe almost 24x7 and bandwith for image/file uploads will always take a back seat to topics and postings.  really large images are great for making into hard copies but are almost useless for computers. if you have a huge image file and it takes forever to upload, you will eventually get an, such as using wifi or other slow connections. it still will take longer to display on the huge images .... and slow down.  this has nothing to do with the trad gang server - it has WAY more horsepower than we need.  it's about internet connections.

"smaller" images are guaranteed to upload fast - as long as there are no network issues in the route from your computer to the trad gang server .... it's the internet, and stuff sometimes just happens!

what is a "smaller" image?  2000 or less pixels in width x length.  the truth is, even those images are WAAAAY too large to be properly viewed on a typical computer screen, let alone a phone or tablet.  there is no need for that, it's a waste of everything.

so it will help to resize really large images.  for my personal use, i size to 1024 wide at the max, but most are 800 wide down to 640 wide at the minimum.
