Trouble with posting pictures

Hello,

I had a question, I've been trying to add a new post in the Frame Design forum, and I when I go to submit a picture I get this message: "Sorry, the board attachment quota has been reached." And I can not post any photos.

I got the same message when trying to post a picture in the Terrain forum as well, and I also noticed I get the same message if I go to post a picture as a reply in an already previously existing forum.

Funny thing is I can post the picture that says how I can't post the picture :lol:

Any help in how to solve this conundrum, would be greatly appreciated. Thank you :)

I'm really not sure how directly attaching photos goes or how the whole quota thing works, but I would recommend making a flickr or imgur account.
There are some helpful guides for this on the hangar.

Basically, you're making the forum host your pictures, and an Admin has to up the limit. I recommend you go get a Flickr account regardless.

Ok so as per suggested, I finally went out on a limb and started a Flickr account :D However copying the BBCode is a little tricky, because at least on this tablet it won't let you fully copy the code by "select all", you have to angle the highlighted select button just right and it will highlight the rest of the code(which is offscreen) and then copy it. I don't know if anyone else might have a similar problem.

Well anyways here is my first attempt:

I also think I should scale down the size of the picture.


I also just noticed that when I click on the picture it does not link to the post on Flickr, the link appears on the bottom. Not exactly sure what to do. Although that's not really a big deal since I was originally just looking to post pictures here without exceeding the limit allowed to post directly on this site. Either way, Please pardon my ignorance. :)

You were missing a URL address, which I edited back in.

I can also recommend the imgur app for mobile, as hosting and linking is quite simple and streamlined for mobile devices. At first, the process of publishing your photos publicly or hosting privately can be confusing, and editing the order in which they display doesn't work for me, currently, but otherwise it functions as intended and scales well.
