Upload graphic image

The maximum size of each file (GIF/JPG/PNG format) that can be uploaded is 1200 kb. Images take time to display when a visitor using a dial-up service opens the message page, so please keep the file size as low as possible. There is no limit to the pixel dimensions of an image you might wish to upload, but please keep pictures to below 500 pixels in height.

There will be a pause while the image uploads either when previewing the message or when submitting the message.
