    Firstly, all photos need to be resized to a MAXIMUM of 1600 X 1600 pixels. Any size below 1600 X 1600 pixels is OK however you shouldn't make photos too small for us so we can see what a problem you may be showing us. This can be done in 'Paint' or any other photo editing software. There are also FREE online photo editing software programs like http://downloads.techradar.com/downloads/paint-net or other available free programs.
