Does the pic size have to be reduce to 100 x 100 dpi before it can be uploaded? I thought that was one problem I had.

Yes, the picture has to be reduced before uploading. 120x120 pixels, or 100 kb.

Does one have to edit the Avatar pic to 100 x 100 dpi? I thought I had to.

Yes, "Avatars are limited in size to 100 x 100 pixels or 100 KB (Whichever is smaller)."

I use the camera on my phone for taking pictures so maybe this is why I haven't needed to resize any yet.

There is a difference to attaching a photo to a post and inserting an avatar or signature line photo. Last I checked the forum software still requires avatars and signature line photos to meet the size limit guidelines.

As to attachments, while the forum software can re-size photos "on the fly" as it uploads; there is still a maximum upload limit per post.

So, if you upload a singe 8 meg photo, the software will downsize it just fine after a bit.

If you upload 3 or 4 8 meg photos at the same time, the software will burp with a security token error (not explaining that the reason for the error is too large an upload).

The work around is to upload the photos one at a time by hitting the "upload" button after every "browse."
