Hi , I am from Vancouver Island BC and just did a trip to the interior (100 mile house) and snapped a pic of a male spinner I would like to get Id'd.The picture is on my computer and is 5.16 mb.I tried to upload it in the get bugs identified forum but seem to be having problems. Is my file too big?
Thanks for the help

Hi Fredw-

My guess is that the problem is not with the size of your image, but with the format of your image. As I recall, uploaded photos on this site are required to be in JPEG format. Are you able to save your image as as a .jpg or .jpeg file before attempting to upload it?

It should work better if you can resize it to a smaller jpeg image.

Thanks for the replies. I got the picture uploaded. Because it was 5 mb it took a while to upload and I wasn't waiting long enough.
