    I used to know this but have forgotten and can't seem to find the information. Getting old I guess...

    I am curious about both pixels (HxW) as well as file size maximums.

    This can be found by going to "more options", then "up load a file".

    The maximum images sizes are misleading. The photo can actually be uploaded as a larger (pixel) size, but the forum will resize it to a maximum of 800px wide by 600px tall. The maximum file size could be a limitation set elsewhere (PHP has a size limit for data uploaded and/or "maximum post size" depending on how it is configured), not necessarily a forum setting.

    I prefer to resize prior to uploading whenever possible. Not that it is likely to make a visible difference if the site's resizer does it. Less bandwidth used though. But again...probably not a huge deal. I am just frugal, and perfectionist, by nature, lol.

    Dang though...800x600 kinda makes a legible amplifier schematic next to impossible

    It looks as though a PDF file could be uploaded. One of my "printer" options on my computer gives me the ability to save to a PDF file. That is one possibility for a schematic.

    Yes....a pdf is a good alternative.

    And I have moved this thread off topic as my original question has been answered. That said, schematics clearly visible to all thread participants can be a great aid in communicating, especially when particular components are marked for all to see and with accompanying text right there.

    I am also not a fan of off-site image hosting for AK thread images as 3rd party hosts are not reliable in the long term. This is a lesson that (IIRC) was learned here long ago, way before the most recent format change. And now...this Photobucket thing is like deja vu all over again.

    So yeah, I am OT....lol. Apologies for the mini-rant
