    I have a 365.8 KB, 2048 x 1536 high resolution photo in my computer that I want to copy and paste into a GC thread. It's "too large" and gets kicked out when I try to copy and paste it.
    How do I fix that problem ??

    The file size limit is 250k so you’ll need to shrink it down some more. Make it smaller height and width wise and compress it more.

    Any idea what program you use to edit photos with?

    Thanks Ray.
    I've never played around much with photo editing. (Obviously)
    I'm using the Windows 10 Photo app (built-in).
    Playing around with it and trying to figure it out now.

    Got it down to 197 KB and it still doesn't work.
    I think I have been defeated by technology.
    :(
