    Sure can. Are you within the 100 x 100 limits?

    In practise it just means that if your file is a larger resolution or a larger file size than the limit, it will be rejected.

    Ok so its not whichever is smaller. Both must be smaller. That sort of makes sense now

    You know, you're right. Changed that wording to:

    Note: The maximum size image you are allowed is * by * pixels in dimension, as well as a file size of * KB.

    Oh, wait, your forums setting limits the number of posts per page?
