File Attachments on TGO

Recommended Posts

  • Administrator

Since moving most of our file storage to Amazon, I have been able to open up more space for our members to upload file attachments.  

While the preferred method of inserting photos into posts is to link from a photo-hosting service like SmugMug, PhotoBucket, TinyPic, etc. we realize that some folks do not want to go through the hassle of that, especially if they just want to post something for sale in the Trading Post.

strongly urge you to edit your photos offline and make them no more than 1600 x 1200 pixels in size as that is generally more than adequate for displaying on a web page, and makes wise use of the storage allocated to you.  A single unedited 7-megapixel photo from an iPhone can be as large as 12MB!  A photo edited down to 1600 x 1200 pixels us usually less than 800KB, or 15 times smaller.  The smaller the photo, the more of them you can store in the same amount of space.

The following lists the current amount of space allocated to a member based on what type of membership they have:

  • 2MB .... Standard Member
  • 10MB ... Benefactor
  • 10MB ... Vendor
  • 20MB ... Lifetime Benefactor
  • 20MB ... Premier Sponsor


These allocations may adjust over time as situations change with our hosting arrangement.  You can always refer back to this thread for the latest allocations.  I will update this any time I update the settings.
