This stores the images on an external web server (

There is a size limit for images. If you have a program like Adobe Photoshop, I suggest the following process:

Open youd image in Photoshop (left click on file - open - and select your file from where ever you savex it)
Select Image - resize - image size
Set the longest axis at 800-1000 pixels.
Save the image using the 'save as' function and give it a different name (I just add 'sml' to the original file name so that I know which image I have reduced).
When it asks for 'JPEG options' set the 'image quality' at '5' (medium) or '3 (low).
This will give you a reasonable quality image at a reasonable size.
