    whenever I try to attach pictures, it says the file is too big (even though I've done it before using my screen resolution "1920x1080")...then I edit the size so it's uber small and it pisses me off because, well, it's so small (that's what she said)

    I probably just made a fluke by uploading other images like this: http://plaguefest.com/index.php?/topic/6174-ledge-spot/page__p__72094__fromsearch__1#entry72094

    The attachment setup on IPB is pretty poor. Just another reason I cannot WAIT to get the new forums done and running...

    You might be better off just using a 3rd party image host for now (imgur.com, imageshack.us, etc), but I will encourage using attachments again once we're on the new site (for sake of keeping images online).

    ^If you find an image on the net, right click and click on "copy image url" and do what she posted

    You can also use Photobucket, it's pretty intuitive to lazy people.
