    I was writing up a ride report today and when I couldn't post more than 4 photos. I've searched for an answer but could not find one. I've resized the photos to make sure they weren't too large and also just used thumbnails but get the same message, no more than 4 photos allowed.
    Any information would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Zap..................

    Yep, 4 photos-limit.

    Couple reach around's are.... use an outside photo hosting source and then you are just pasting "code" and not placing any weight of your pics on the server.
    The other way... kind of sneaky so don't tell anyone, OK?
    If you can work in Photoshop or something similar, in THEORY you can lay-out multiple pictures and then put them side by side or one over the top of the other, bonding them together making them one single image to upload.

    Example:

    How many images do you see below here?
    It's ONE IMAGE, just sized properly to accommodate 2 separate pics, stacked in Photoshop and I matched the background color to the same grey as the forum uses...

    But it's just one pic to upload, yet it's two that you SEE.. :johntm
    Probably deeply forum- immoral of me to share, but you was asking.

    This way, in theory, you could load 4, but show 8.
    Or, you break up your ride report into segments, with text and such and 4 more pics each entry.

    If you right-click and steal this image and save to your desktop, you will see it's just one image, not two.

    Ah! Glad you asked that questions as I was about to search for an answer. Neither of the above suggestions will work for me so I'll carry on posting segmented posts with 4 pics per post. Thanks for asking the question Zapgarou and for the reply Unstable Rider :clap
