My photo is 700kb. Can someone change whatever setting is blocking me, please?
as Yorky has stated. it is virtually guaranteed that it is the pixel size that's the issue. if you upload to the media gallery, the file allowances are larger 1200x1600 pixels and 10Mb file size. if you use the attach file button in the post thread, you are limited to 1024x1200 and 6Mb.My photo is 700kb.

you have only limited size in Mb, so actual physical size and set a dpi of 70. you have not restricted the pixel size. under image sizing, you have not put a tick in the resize to fit, width & height box. you need to. pixel size is what is causing this problem. the limits are above.Well, I just went into LightRoom and checked, exported in both suggested resolutions -- taking screen shots along the way -- and still got the too big error (in the what did you cook today thread). Interestingly, I could post here. hmmmm
I posted just as I always post, but now the images are too big. The last time this happened I was told there was some setting in place that prevented SPAM, so after you've been on the site for x amount of time, those limits would automatically be removed. This is what I'm assuming is happening, but then I can post here. hmmmmm

just yeII if you have a query. I'm an IT engineer by training (currently retired through ill health) and also was a semi-professional landscape photographer (sorry I use Canon). There are also plenty of decent food photographers on the site as well as a professional photographer (cars) and whilst I personally don't use Adobe, I used to support it when I ran a school network (600 students etc).I'm pretty good with the Adobe Suite but I know nothing about anything you talked about, so I need to study!
I think this must be my new camera: I just bought a Nikon 7, which has HUGE files and sic resolution. I need to learn just what that mean.
Thanks for the help and explanations.

pixels are basically screen size.
Mb are basically physical disk size. Concentrate on the pixel size and the disk size will take care of itself.
Presumably you know DPI ? (printer quality for a crude definition). keep it to 70-72 for internet use. small pixels, Small size and small dpi all go a long way to prevent digital photo theft.
Having just looked up your camera I'm not surprised you are running into problems...
Max resolution 8256 x 5504
Other resolutions 5408 x 3600 (DX crop), 6880 x 5504 (5:4), 5504 x 5504 (1:1), 8256 x 4640 (16:9)
Image ratio w:h 1:1, 5:4, 3:2, 16:9
Effective pixels 46 megapixels
Sensor photo detectors 47 megapixels
Sensor size Full frame (35.9 x 23.9 mm)
It is basically a 46 Megapixel camera. It's overkill for here. Even my old Canon EOS 5D Mkiii is overkill for here and it is 10 years old now (20 Megapixel camera)
Does your phone have a camera you can use?
Seriously. even Morning Glory who takes fantastic photos uses her camera phone.
I second the phone thing
I beg to differ, as a full-time professional photographer. Use the best camera you have, at the highest settings available, then scale back in Lightroom.
My Nikon D4 is always set as if I am shooting for a magazine cover, even when I'm just shooting for this forum. I then size my photos in Photoshop to fit within the forum's limits.
MadebyyouandI paid good money for that Nikon 7. Her cake photo looks great! I say keep using it, and learn how to size down in Lightroom.
But it's the only camera I have.
So it suits me.
Photography doesn't really interest me, but I do appreciate a good pic.
i do remember buying a quality 35m. Camera but the wifes claimed it. I havnt seen it since I bought it.Well then, that's the best camera you have. Nothing wrong with that. Use it!
