It was suggested that I do a build thread, and perhaps doing one will propel my completion. Work seems to keep getting in the way, but hopefully full retirement will happen next summer.

I'll have to continue this after re-sizing my pics.

This is getting tiresome. I try to add a pic, it gets rejected, I delete it and then a picture that was posted is too big? Resized to 640H 480W won't work.

Gary,are you using Photobucket or trying to upload from your computer?

Photobucket is free and it resizes your photos.

The maximum allowable dimensions for a photo on the are 1000H x 1000W so dimensions are not your issue.

What's most likely hindering you is your photo file size. The current max file size is 1.5 mb. That's a pretty robust photo. Anything bigger and we'd quickly use up the forum's storage capacity.

There's any number of ways to get your photos down to 1.5 mb or smaller. Photobucket is one, MS Paint on a PC is another....there are many.
