I Need Some Help

What is the maximum file size?
What are the preferred dimensions?
What is the preferred resolution?
What is the preferred file format?
Where is this information posted on the site, so that new members can read the answers to these questions and find out the answers to questions that they may not have thought to ask?
Really, that last question is the most important one.

Like Betsy, I follow the guidelines that seem "universal" to most sites...100K max size (some sites are higher, but the smallest is 100K, so this way you only have to keep one size and you can upload it to all your frequented sites.) I keep mine at about 550 px by 550 px and around 50-60 quality setting on the JPG (JPG is also standard on all sites I know of). "Resolution" (as in DPI) doesn't REALLY matter in the end, because each person's monitor will display at the resolution it is capable of, regardless of how the file was saved - usually this is either 72 or 96 dpi, but may vary by brand. But "resolution" in the sense that it has a number of pixels across, by height DOES matter. Like I mentioned before, I keep mine about 550 x 550.
A title is helpful, but doesn't have to be formal...you can just say "A LO of my ... daughter/son/hubby..." etc, whatever you like. My titles are usually just the "title" or main journaling statement from the layout itself.
I agree, having a "home" to this information makes sense. I'm sure Ro will see the post and add it to her "to do" list.
Hope this helps!

If you want to look at what people have uploaded, I find it easiet to just go to the Members Gallery. Everything that everyone has uploaded will show up in there, regardless of which category.
