Open them with Microsoft Paint if you have it and reduce the image size to around 1500 x something pixels which should get you to a size that can be both uploaded and viewed on the forum and is here forever as opposed to until your hosting site decides to shut down or start charging...

An auto resize plugin for the forum server would be great!

Max is 5

1024x768

Invalid normally means a non accepted file extension however you are saying jpg...not sure why you would get that message.

The file is too big.
