I am having trouble posting a photo for recipes I create. How do I make sure they are within the size allowed.

The pixel thing got me. Finally figured out that you cannot adjust the size of the pix (like a 5 x 7 photo) to get the size of the pixels correct for loading. I did manage to figure out that it only works for me if I adjust the 0/0 percentage. One photo I had to use 125 percent, another photo had to be 200 percent. Not a tech person so I hope I helped.

I know there is a better way, but I take my photos to Picmonkey, hit crop, then check scale photo and change it to 1300 x 960. That works for me. There must be an easier way, but that works for me.

the 960x960 is related to resolution and size. That means there are different ways depending on what you want to do and have available. For instance, I have 8x8 photos so anything over 120dpi will be over 960. If they were only 5x5 at 120dpi they would only be 600x600 and too small. That can be 'fixed' by using photo software, like Marianne is doing. Does that make sense? Some people change their camera settings but I have mine set for personal photos and this site's requirements aren't important to me since I can easily change resolution in photo software on the rare occasions that my photo falls under 960x960.
