Picture Posting Conundrum

Recommended Posts

I'm hoping someone can help me fix whatever is happening. I've read the posting rules on size etc. I've resized the jpeg image (in Preview) so it comes in under 1280 and under 500kb. It shows up on my screen that way. Yet when I try and post I get the "Exceeded the 501.9kb limit". 

Can someone explain what is happening?

I created a similar problem in a program that took picture uploads. My error was that I loaded the image, then saved it on the server before reading the file size. On the server the file was larger due to what we called its 'cluster factor' which is like rounding a number up to accommodate the much larger storage fractional  of the server. Sure, I fixed it but it was an embarrassment.

I cannot know if that is happening here, but you might try lowering the size by 10%.
