Default Security token error when posting photos

If you get a message like this:

Quote:
Your submission could not be processed because a security token was missing.

If this occurred unexpectedly, please inform the administrator and describe the action you performed before you received this error.
It is because you are trying to upload or attach a photo that is larger than we allow. You will need to downsize your photos to 800x600 or so. Our limit is 1024x1024.

Most any photo software allows you to resize photos. Personally, I use FastStone Photo Resizer. http://www.faststone.org/FSResizerDetail.htm

It's a free download for home use and allows you to do a batch resize (multiple images at once). I've developed a process where I upload my photos from the camera or phone into a directory or sub-directory that has a name that fits the subject. Then I launch Faststone and select the photos I want to resize. One of the options is to select the destination directory. I create a new sub-directory called 'small' in the original directory. This way I have the same file name for the original large image and the smaller one. Plus it saves me a lot of time looking for photos in one big directory.

Lots of ways to do this. This is just what I do.

Kerry, I have found I only get that message if I try and download more than 4 images in one go. If I do them all separate I never seem to have any issues.
