How to shrink the file size of images for upload

The maximum file size when uploading a photograph is 1MB. However, many digital cameras will save a file by default much higher than this. There are many ways to shrink the file size down - either use one of the many image viewer applications or there are also many web based applications. We can't endorse any one particular application, but consider these as examples:

Windows: try opening your image in the stock 'Paint' application and use the 'Resize' tool.

Android: search the Play Store for "image resizer" applications.

Apple: search the App Store for "image resizer" applications.

Apple users should also be aware that many Apple mobile phones do not save any images taken by the camera as a standard 'jpeg' and instead use a proprietary 'HEIC' video container format for images. This format is not recognised by our form. Users should consult with Apple support regarding how to convert the format to a standard jpeg. There are also free browser based convertors available.

Linux: there are a large number of open source image viewers that allow you to view an image and export in a more compressed format available in most distribution's repositories. Try Gwenview or ShowFoto, for example.
