Sorry, yet again, Because of my problems of getting photos on this computer I can not do what I want. I really want to put a new one up but its just not working. If I take a picture it tells me the file is too large so its easy to change the size and I do so and have even gone down to a size of around 40kB and it still tells me its too large. Then with the way Photobucket have changed things I have not got that sussed yet. I am pretty certain that it is because I use Linux. Perhaps @dianaT can enlighten me on this as I know she uses Linux only and I wonder if has the same kind of problem. I get my laptop back on 8th Jan at Latest and all problems will then be solved.

I use a camera not a 'phone and the camera is set at the lowest setting. VGA 4:3 - so Alan has told me as he is the one who set it up. I asked and he assumes that you are using GIMP to 'shrink' the pictures. If so, when you scale the pictures (Image>Scale image) try to make sure that the X and Y resolutions are less than 100 pixels and the maximum size is around 5 x 8 inches. He says that although the size is around 40 kb it could be that the resolution is still too high.

I don't use Photobucket. My pictures come off of the camera and onto the computer then I just upload the as they are. Alan changes the camera setting if he is using it. If he takes some pictures for me he normally sets the camera to a high setting then uses GIMP to reduce a copy of them as required for me to upload.

Send a PM if you need more help Alan will see what else he can advise.
