Headstone
« on: Saturday 30 January 21 13:04 GMT (UK) »
Hello, I'm wondering if anyone can make a photo clearer and legible - it might hold the clue to the next stage of my research! I believe it to be the headstone of my great-grandmother's family. The original was in a trunk she had, and I think the headstone might be in Ford Cemetery, but there is no further indication on the reverse.

Each time I try to upload I get a message saying the file is too large: first it said 900kb, so I reduced the file to 640KB and now it says 500!!?? Any help much appreciated!

640KB is fine, did you try to attach it ?

Sarah, I can't post a single photo any higher than 500kbs without getting an error message that the file is too big and never have been able to, I can post two induvial photos totalling 900kbs ???

Same with me, Sarah - a max of 500kb for an individual file or 900 kb for multiple files.

Add - e.g. I had to compress this file as it was over 500kb initially:

I had thought that it was 900kb per image.

I've just tried again now, and it says 500KB.

  Ensure the photo you are trying to attach is UNDER 500 KB in terms of file size.  If you are unsure of how to change your file size without losing image quality, please read the tutorial provided here:
