I can understand that for bandwidth reasons the photo sizes are restricted, but wow, are they ever.

Knowing what I know now, I probably should have used a file hosting site when adding photos for an ad, but I was surprised by finding out each restriction in turn instead of knowing from the start.
I would suggest making the rules clearer.

I skimmed the general FAQ, and the 'before posting here' info for the advert forum. I could be wrong but saw nothing much about photos.

I tried to upload photos for my ad but they kept failing to do so. Eventually I noticed a small notice near the top of the page (away from the photo upload near the bottom) about max 128 k size.
OK, I cropped and resized all my photos and saved in low quality compression and tried again.
Failed again.
Now the notice was that 640*480 was the max.
So I resized once more.
Tried again. This time, I was stopped at 3 photos and informed that was the max.
So I had to delete and juggle photos until selecting 3 I wanted.

Phew! Whatever the restrictions, it would have been good to know from the start what they were instead of repeated rounds of editing.

A fair point. I’ve put a statement on memory limitations in the FAQ section, and I may add something to the “New Users” post.
