    Every time I try to upload pictures, they won't upload and I get a message saying that the file was too big to process. I don't understand this because the site says file size limit if 4MB, however all of my pics are under 3MB. Any idea why?

    I get this message constantly as well. I can't upload pictures that I take on my phone, no matter what their size.
    It makes posting selfies of me with dryer sheets a real bother. Photobucket is a PIA

    It's been answered before, and I think there are other tricks, but what works for me on my iPad is to go to the gallery and edit each picture. I just crop them a little bit and save them. Then the media uploader works fine for me.

    It seems like the limit is really somewhere between 1 and 2 Mb. I can always upload if I keep the pix in that range.

    You have to use lower resolution photos, 72dpi. Screen resolution works best.
