Here I am updating 2 wallpapers for MX linux, in a 1920 X 1200 resolution in jpg format. But when going to attachment its saying file too large. File size is 537 and 480 KB. So how can i upload a better resolution for usability here.

Thanks

You can't upload the files to this forum directly. You have to upload them to a picture-hosting site, like Imgur, and then link the image to the forum.

There is a 300 Kb size limit on images that can be uploaded to the forum.. It is recommended you use an image hosting service for images exceeding that limit.
