It is a bit of a pain (you can use preview on a mac to reduce the picture size) but if you use the "tapatalk" app it does it all for you... much quicker.

If you're using a Windows" PC (Anything from XP to Win 10) then I personally recomend Paint.Net

It's free and legal.

If you download it and find you still can't do what you want, give me a second shout. I'll post exactly how to do it.

BMRC - Posting Photos:

Using the Forum 'Upload Attachment' method you are limited to uploading a picture of not more than 1200 x 1200 pixels max dimensions, 250Kbytes max file size.
Any problems will be advised when you try it. You can then add up to three pictures/post.

Here's how:
1. Go to 'Full Editor & Preview'.
2. Scroll down and select 'Attachments' tab.
3. Select 'Add files' and browse for your picture (max 1200x1200 pixels and 250Kb filesize).
4. Add any 'File Comments' to be attached to the pic.
5. Place your cursor in the post where you want the pic to be located.
6. Select 'Place Inline'.
7. Repeat from (2) above for up to a total of three pics/post.
8. Select 'Submit'.

If your pics are too big (max 1200x1200 pixels and 250Kb filesize), see the following depending on the device you are using:

Windows: I use Windows Paint (tabs Home/Resize) which allows you to resize a pic and save it under a different filename
e.g. 'existing filename'_ small.

iPad/iPhone: For iPad/iPhone photo resize, go to the App Store and download a free Photo Resize App such as 'Simple Resize'.

Mac: For Mac photo resize go to the Preview application where there is a resize function.
