forum improvement with uploads

It would be very usefull to increase the size of image upload. With my galaxy s3 phone screen shoots are to big to be uploaded into the forum.

Ok... do you know a free application that can do the job in my device (android 4.0.4) ?

I think the maximum you can post in the forums without scroll bars or external hosting is 640x480.

I already try to post a screenshot from my s3 and it was refused. Very boring to get help in this case or do a correct job of beta tester

If I am on my Windows partition I use the power toys. Right click on image > resize > choose size > done.

If you transfer the picture to your computer, I recommend GIMP for a powerful free open source photo editor.

Just post the picture. The pictures have scroll bars so you can see the whole thing. If you want to see the whole thing at one time, just right click and then View Image (YMMV with different browsers).

I just use Irfanview to resize the pics if I need to. Takes about 3 seconds. Gimp is too powerful. Takes a minute to open the software. It's like a free Adobe Photoshop.

Size limits are there for a reason, so pictures are not wider than the page layout. Phones are quickly attaining screen resolutions equal to and higher than computer screens. Please resize your screen shot before posting.
