Default Why can't I attach images to posts anymore?

It would appear you can't attach images to your posts here anymore. While trying to post a write-up to the 2nd gen section, I tried to attach some JPG pictures with no luck. I've done this successfully many many times in the past & know the procedure, so that's not the issue.

Anyway, with the first image I attempted to post via "manage attachments" function, it refused and told me the image size was too big - mine was something like 4096 x 2048, and it said we're limited to 1200 x 1200. Ok, no problem - I used some software to reduce the image size down by 75% to 1024 x 512, tried to upload that JPG file instead and it still wouldn't work. What gives? A car forum that doesn't allow picture posting is pretty useless.

I don't have an answer for this particular issue but I can say that using an image hosting site (I use Flickr) is without a doubt the best way I've shared pictures. No attachments to open for the end user. . and all around easier for the poster.

What Zach said. Be aware some hosting sites make it almost impossible to embed your photos in other web sites (google anyone). I gone back to flickr as well for some of my pic posting needs.

Yeah, I thought about using one of the image hosting/cloud storage sites but that has its problems too as you guys mentioned. Would be much better to be able to just upload your picture here on RCC so it can be embedded right in the post - much easier for the reader and poster. We used to be able to do this; RCC forum is broken.
