    Hey everyone,

    Not sure if this is the right place for this but, I want to post some pictures of my air ride suspension I completed last summer but all my pictures are too large to upload. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    You should be able to find a free utility for doing minor image changes, including saving to a smaller resolution/file size. I typically take photos with my Android phone. I've downloaded a utility called Pixlr from the Google store. I use it to do some minor cropping, then save the cropped photo as "small." To my 58-year-old eyes, it looks good enough for posting. The cropped file size is typically under 200KB, which is small enough to post on the forum, and the resolution is usually high enough that it looks good on a PC monitor. Pixlr is free, and no ads, but I'm sure there are plenty of others, and plenty of alternatives if you use an iPhone.

    I tried using some of those image-hosting sites, but I never had much luck with those. Hope this helps.

    I've been using supermotors.net for years. Never had a problem.

    Thanks! Very helpful! I use Android as well so I'll try Pixlr.

    I really appreciate that but I think I'm going to figure it out myself. I'm close! Do you know what size they need to be to post? @colnago mentioned 200kb is that the maximum size per picture? Thanks again.

    I think 1mb is the limit. Click on the link in my signature and it’ll give you a guide on how to do it.
