Movie background file size too big to upload

Movie background file size too big to upload

Postby [email protected] » Sat Jul 23, 2016 9:52 pm

Hi

I am trying to upload some movie backgrounds and it is saying the file size are too big. The image is 1920x1080 but how can I upload it without changing the image size?

Thanks

It means the filesize is too big, not the dimensions.

In regards to this issue, can anyone offer tips on reducing the file size please.

I have several that are part of fanart 'sets' that I have not been able to post as they are over the 1MB file size.

I tried saving them in Paint instead of GIMP, which sometimes lowers the size and also affected the colour in 'posturise' as I sometimes have to do to get disc files sizes down, but this has not done the trick.

I use this site: http://optimizilla.com/ it is great for reducing CDArts that are way over the limit.

For Posters and Backgrounds, I usually just reduce the Quality size down when exporting.
