    it could be something new, i don't remember doing it before...

    I have just uploaded some pictures in a post .
    When previewing the post, it would give me a few attachment and an error message when i would open them.

    Then I have clicked at the icon which appears on top of the list of the pictures that i am trying to upload which tells me do I want thumbnails or full size.

    After choosing that option (in my case fullsize) the pictures were visible. Phew

    I re-size photos to 800 pixels for the longest edge, that seems to work.

      I think its max 800 wide x 600 tall. If you upload image with bigger dimensions than that the image will be resized to that. If you upload a file size that is too big (don't know the limit) it will be rejected.

        Easiest program for resizing IMO is IrfanView. It's freeware, so just google and download it. To resize, open the image with IrfanView, press ctrl and r simultaneously, check that the preserve aspect ratio box is ticked (it will save this command so you only need to do it the first time that you use the program), type in the size that you want in the x or y dimension box and then press enter on your keyboard. You must save the image, so press ctrl/s to replace the original image or s to save in a different folder.

          I use IrfanView too. I wish it would crop to a fixed aspect ratio - if I am cropping my photo to get 600 high here then I crop it with full width and then fiddle about trying to get the width to exactly 800. If it would crop to 800 x 600 aspect ratio, and I then resize it to that, I'd get max. width for all by 600-high pictures, and max height for all my 800-wide ones :)
