Hi,

Is there someplace I can see a list of what error codes mean (those that pop up when uploading photos, particularly)?

Also, I know I've seen but can't find a description of the limits for photos (file type, file size, image type, etc.)?

Thanks,

Chris

The format has to be .jpg , you can find that in the wiki : http://www.boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/Image_submissions

The maximum file size is not exactly mentioned, but this thread mentions problems for images larger than 4 MB.

Thanks. One thing though, you say the format has to be .jpeg, but I've used .png before, more than a few times (someone told me that for screen captures that format is better, but it's not clear to me why). I'm happy to use .jpeg, it seems the file size is much smaller in that format, but I thought I'd mention that in case someone else reads this and needs one format for some specific reason.
