Ideal picture size?

I'm new here and just wondering if there's an ideal picture size setting for uploading. I've shared a few on here and always get the "resizing" warning and then my pics are very grainy. I'm not tech savvy so, had to ask. Thanks!

I have found the same.
So recently I've been using a third party image host, and just downloading a link.
It embeds a sizeable pic right into the post, and seems to be better quality.

There are lots of different ones out there, and I have tried several.
Am currently using Postimage, which is completely free.

70litre tank: mature setup; betta, purple rasboras, male guppies, amano and wood shrimp. Heavily planted.
22litre cube tank: (Tagawa); betta, yellow dwarf shrimp. Pond snails and 1 assassin. Heavily planted.
Midnight in the 57litre tank (Midnight) ember tetras, 1 amano, 1 ghost, 1 nerite, pond snails, 1 assassin, doing his thing. Heavily planted.
200litre tank; honey gourami, cherry barbs, green neons, otocinclus, nerites, pond snails, amano. Heavily planted.

If it is still available for download you could also use Google Picasa. It has some quick fixes and the export feature will resize your pictures to the right size to upload to the site. I have had it installed for years now but don't know if google still supports it . If you go to the web site for Picasa there is a free download still available.
