The software in the gallery will reduce the size of your pictures but it's quicker if you reduce them to no more than 900 pixels wide or 800 pixels high, whichever is the larger. If they're too big it can reject them some times.
To attach to a thread posting they must be no bigger than 800 pixels wide or 600 pixels high and it won't reduce them for you.

PS there is some info on this in a past thread.

Depends what sort of picture you were trying to upload. I always upload jpeg versions and I've never had problems. It may be that you have to increase the compression. Most of mine are compressed about 80% and that doesn't reduce the quality too much.
A lot of scanning and manipulation software will allow you to reduce the kb size as well as the viewable size.
The last one I uploaded was 900 wide by 600 high and 139kb.
