Hello I don't have problem with taking pictures though some may disagree, but I use my iphone 11 and a macro lens. Then when I try to upload they say file to large. It suggest to crop, but by the time I get it small enough it is only a small part of the picture. Any help would be appreciated.

@cn, have you tried using the free optimizer? Here is a link:

I resize mine with photoshop... A pic from an IPhone will show up as about 42 inches wide... You can decrease the image size w/o losing quality.

I have used the optimizer, but like I said by the time I crop it down small enough it's only part of the coin. Unless there is another way to use it I will have to look elsewhere. Very frustrating.

Crop, resize to under 800 pixels on the longest side, compress to 65/70% and you have a beautiful internet ready pic.

Just grabbed this as a 4000 by 4000 image from Heritage and did what I said above. At 158KB it's just over half of what you're allowed to upload here.....

No worries, a lot of people do. But as you can see that image is perfectly fine for anything you would need here.

A lot of us have 4K screens ... 800px is a tiny pic. Does the forum support *.webp images? The files are smaller and better than *.jpg files. Jpeg is really old, but it's everywhere.

JPEG XL is coming eventually (*.jxl) it's the legit (and free) replacement for *.jpg
https://jpeg.org/jpegxl/

They learned from the good points of webp, but also designed it to be able to decode in parallel (ie, faster). *.jxl will retain more image detail than *.webp files. Oh, and webp2 is in the works ... seems like the image compression wars are finally heating up. Jpeg has been a thorn in the side of image quality for years, decades (since 1986).
