No Photo Appeared With Your Announcement? - If you submitted a photo with your announcement and it wasn't included, here's why:
  • The photo was too big. Photos need to be no larger than 250 X 250 pixels (about 3.5"), otherwise they take up too much space.
  • The link was bad. All links need to end in .JPG, .JPEG, .GIF, or .PNG or they will not display. Links that end in .HTM, .HTML, or a bunch of numbers won't work.
  • The photo's file size was too large. All photos need to be under 30 KiloBytes in file size, otherwise they take too long to load.
We don't have time to fix too-large photos or bad links so we delete them. We've posted a detailed tutorial online explaining how to correctly add photos to your announcement. You can find it here: www.bajawesternonion.com/how-to-post-photos-with-your-ad-or-article.asp

Of course, if this is too much for you, we can resize, upload and host your photo on the Baja Western Onion web site for only $5.00 US per photo.
