Hi Aaron,

Welcome to CN !

Is there a problem or are you just saying you don't know where to find the "Members' Gallery" ?

If it's merely the latter, go back into the Main Index and scroll down until you're almost at the bottom. There you will see the "Members' Gallery". Just click on the title and you'll see a number of sub-headings, one of which says "Upload Photos".

From there on, it's all pretty well self-explanatory.

Hoping this helps,
Best regards,
Tel

i am able to find the section to upload to, but i am only allowed to upload a 200kb photo, which doesnt help me to much. I thought the members gallery was the place where i could upload a bigger sized image? and if not where do i upload them to?

does there need to be certain criteria to meet before uploading a image bigger than 200kb?

At the bottom of the forum tab there is a link to the members gallery.

http://www.cloudynights.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=500

At the top right of the member gallery is a link to upload photo's. It looks like it has a limit of 10,000kb per user. It also looks like that can be one 10mb file 10,000 1kb files or anywhere in between.

I've see a lot of people use www.astrobin.com to post their stuff too. Not sure what limitations it has.

www.astrobin.com has no limits on size and then you can post a link to your image here on CN

ill have to mess about with this more, this is what it tell me when i try to upload a picture of the moon i took thats 295kb--->Your file exceeded our limit of kb. Please go back and try again. 200kb.

it also says under the photo upload,---->Photo to upload:
0k file size limit

so this means im not allowed to upload until a certain point or time frame here at CN?

I just tried to upload a large file and it gave me the 200kb message too. I'd probably look at astrobin or try to compress your file more.

You need a picture re-sizer. I have one from microsoft power toys for winxp it was free and works great. I dont know about other operating systems.

There's a good online image editor at pixlr.com -- and it's free. I've used it quite often at work, where I don't have access to Photoshop, etc.
