I'm trying to upload the image for a playmat for a boardgame that I edited, the problem is it's too large according to the image uploading guidelines, and I tried uploading it as a common file but the upload fails soon after it begins (saying "error - secure connection to server was reset"), probably because the image is a bit too large (around 90 MB).
How do I share this with the other BGGeeks ?

90 MB seems big. Even if you upload it somewhere, people may have a hard time downloading it. Can it be smaller? Or perhaps make a zip file and upload it to your website, if you have one?

It's a 300 DPI PNG meant for a large playmat, that's why it's big.
Downloading 90 MB is no problem in this day and age, heck people are downloading 50 GB movies...
Maybe if I divide it into sections (.rar sections that is) I could upload it on BGG) but that would mean a lot of succesive uploads and I don't know what the admins would think about that...
Maybe I should just upload it on some file hosting service but not sure which...

EDIT :
I've uploaded it to Dropbox (god I hate that site !), so problem solved for now (I wish you could upload bit bigger files to BGG, maybe not 10GB ones but 100MB would be useful)...
