I am entering my first contest and I cannot get my image to upload! I have reduced the size of my file to a size that is LOWER then the recommended size. How can I fix this problem?

Thanks!

Dood. First things first, only need to post in ONE thread. We'll see it.

Now. List out the properties of your pic.

Pixel dimensions for width and height (don't swap them around)
File size in KB
What format (i.e. jpg or gif)
What image mode you saved it as.

500 wide by 350 high is the recommended size

So your images is not wide enough, use the canvas resizer to get the canvas to minimum width size and put your image in that. Leave the hight as is.

Q: What kind of image files can I enter?
A: In most contests images must be a JPEG or a GIF file. The size of the file must be under 125kb in actual size. JPEG image dimensions must be less than 800 pixels wide by 600 pixels high. Animated GIFs must be less than 550 wide by 450 high. If you are getting an error message, try reducing the file size and/or dimensions just a bit and then uploading again.

Ok, so I resized it to 594 px high by 400 px wide... Same problem. Image is still only 93k. It's at 40px/inch, is that an issue?

I have no idea. But perhaps if you check the forum page, tap on a blue or green name, and send them a pm, these are mods, they can help you
