I brought this up a month or so ago, and well ,was kind of blown off. Burra was the only responder.   The problem never got any better I just stopped trying to post very many pictures.  This system WORKED when we only could post 3 pictures now that we can post twenty, well it sucks .
Trying to post more than one picture is an extremely frustrating experience! My photos are on average 3.5 mb  not very big.This morning I have been trying to post 5 photos in piggys, long way from twenty photos.  25 minutes later and  So far 9 attempts to post ... No luck ,two times told permies couldn't be contacted...  only goes about 30-40% download then goes back to 0 % and starts over. I still haven't been able to post yet.  This is not a connection problem. I'm hardlined to blackfoot .net, Nowhere else do we have the slightest problem downloading/ publishing  anything.
I keep trying because I enjoy my time on permies ...  However if I was a new member... I would stop trying and go else where.
This is a real issue not a (Oh you have a crappy connection!) I can't be the only one having this problem ... We need to address this...  Is any body out there ?

I am unsure what 3.5mb translates to in actual size. I think the forum limit is 700 (pixel?)on the widest .

I had terrible problems until i found this size info and started resizing them. The default on my resize app is 640 x 480. No problems since i made this change, except when internet is being dumb.

Thanks Wayne; I haven't' a clue what my pixel size is, but I will find out. Maybe that is the problem.  Thing is I haven't changed anything .Never had issues before, only thing that changed was how many photos we allow.  That was when my problems started.
I'll find out if my photos are too pixelly and post back if that has been my problem.

Thomas, are the pictures you are trying to load saved to your computer or are you using a photo hosting site?

Here are some threads that might help:

https://permies.com/t/52846/posting-pictures


This one explains how to resize the photos:

Edit:  You will have to go to the thread for the instructions


Nicole Alderman wrote:One thing you can do on your own posts/threads to speed up load times for everyone is to make the picture smaller. There's actually a spiffy nifty bit of code you can stick at the end of image url (this doesn't work with attached images, but it works with embedded ones.)

Problem solved , after much head banging ,pleading with my wife to explain things , refraining from throwing laptop across the room ... The light bulb slowly illuminated.
Yes, somehow my camera switched to super high def. The pictures were thousands of pixel sized instead of 640x480  
I have changed the setting on the camera itself so hopefully all new photos will load rite up. Hopefully the (gremlin) that changed the setting on my camera will stay away.
Thanks again Wayne for your suggestion.

Anne; Thank you as well. My photos are stored on the laptop. I've never used a photo hosting site.
I did just now, load an old photo editing disk  (Nikon view nx 2)  on this laptop that I had on the old one. This will allow me to see exactly what size my photos are.  I'm not overly impressed with the windows 10 photo program.

Giant images and a slow (?) connection make for a timeout.
