Title: Request entity too big
Post by New Builder on Jan 10th, 2017 at 8:59am
Tried to popst my build this AM but kept getting the error that the request entity was too big and think my post was denied. Any guidance here?

Probably the attachments (photos) were too large, or the whole message was too long (large text and 6x 400Kb photos).

Explanation can be found HERE.

Cut the post by 90% and one photo and still rejected. Queried the actual photo and the size is 1.77Mb. Can this be caused by the photo size setting on the camera?

Don't worry about fiddling with camera settings. You need to get a photo resizing program. I use a free one called Irfanview. I select my photo, and under "Image" use "resize/resample". It has options to resize to particular pre-set size, or as a percentage of the original picture.
Irfanview available here: http://www.irfanview.com/

Thank you for the feedback. I already set the picture size to 4 x 6. This should create a pic of the right size, I will try tomorrow. Thank you again.

I'm not sure that will reduce the pixel size of the picture appropriately.  I have Photoshop that I use.  As Ian has recommended the link will assist you in resizing the pictures.  Usually when you hover your cursor over the saved file it will give you the size of the file that's been saved.

Thanks to all for the help but still having difficulty reducing my photos to a size below 750Mb. Tried resizing a resized photo but no luck. Will keep trying until I find a solution, really want to participate. Thanks again. :(

Problem solved. I'll be posting my Ryan STA pics to the New Build section, probably tomorrow morning. Thanks again for all the feedback and help. Irfanview finally made sense and works fine. :)
