    I think it is limited to a maximium of 97.7KB.

    I think there is only a limit for avatars. The size limit will be determined by total KB. If I am posting a photo I try to keep the width to 800 pixels or less so it fits onto most screens.

    gif jpeg jpg pdf txt (jpg/jpeg are best for photos on the web) a jpg and jpeg are the same type of file some computers use different extensions. If you have a choice use jpg.

    I resize my image first, the go to save for web. I typically use jpg and 60 for a quality setting when posting online. It will show you the file size so you can adjust/resize to make it less than 97.7KB.

    I also put a limit of 800 pixels wide and 1000 high for jpeg images. I could be persuaded to go larger but it seemed we should have some limit just because the display goes whacked with really big ones.


    gif images are currently set at 60k, 620wide by 800 high. I suppose we could let them be the same size as jpegs.

    Your thoughts.

    Those specs look good to me. Most gifs are smaller files for the same size anyway. I would leave it alone and see if there are problems with it.
