    Hi Andrew,
    Just uploaded this pic from within this reply, via the "Upload File " option, in it`s original format which was 2mb at 4032 x 2272 pixels. I am using a PC running Linux Mint.
    As far as I understand, the system resets the image to comply with a maximum size of 1000 pixels wide.


    As a test, I will insert the same image from the media gallery both in original size and also reduced to 800 X 600

    Original via the gallery

    Resized to 800 x 600 via the gallery

    Once the original was loaded into the reply and posted, I right clicked on the image and saved it to my computer. Once the image was saved the image properties revealed a size of 76kb at 1000 x 563 pixels.

    It seems to work either way and the system kicks in to re-size images regardless.
    The only thing I can think of is that there may be some software mismatch or incompatibility that is beyond my knowledge.
    Ideas anyone....??????
