Some clarification, please:

You stated photo size would seem to exceed the cited limitations of this site - 1199 pixels, 399kb. Do I have that right? And, is that ok?

If I'm understanding the rules right, as a forum moderator I cannot participate?

3mb currently and not sure about the size but it allows to put 4780x2400 so you can put required: 3840 × 2160 for sure.
