Following feedback on a Facebook poll I started where several people said that the image file size limitation of this site was a real problem for mobile users, I have implemented a tool that automatically resizes and compresses images.
Previously the maximum file size you could upload as an attachment was 1mb. This was fine 5 years ago, but now most people browse the internet on their mobile phones which have much better cameras. 1mb is no longer enough and meant people had to manually resize images before uploading, which is a pain. I don't have enough server space to simply allow unlimited image file sizes, so instead I have configured it so that any images uploaded over a certain size are automatically scaled down and resaved at a much lower file size.
This works on any device, whether you are on a desktop PC or on your phone. So you should now be able to simply press the attachments button, and then choose images from your phones image library and upload without hassle.
Hopefully this is a game changer for many of you who find uploading images to imageshack etc too time consuming
