Christopher,

Feel free to report any big pix and we can modify the picture. That also gives us a chance to help users learn how to manipulate images.

It may be considered a drain on resources but it's also nice to learn new skills.

Further to previous responses, it is quite possible for Rootschatters to take responsibility for their own postings.  There is a lot of guidance available about how to use Rootschat if only people would take a few moments to read it.

Prominently posted and stickied on the board How to Use Rootschat is this thread Adding Images to Posting and Profiles

As always, Moderators are more than happy to help anyone who has difficulty with this aspect - or any other.

I agree with Christopher that it is very annoying when pictures are much too big and an automatic limit would suit me fine if it is possible.

I wonder how many member read How to Use Rootschat, Arranroots?
I presume those who post a query about their ancestors on a Resource board have not read this section 8)
