BakaBT only allows images for descriptions that are <150kb in size. If your image is over the limit, you'll have to compress it to a file size that's acceptable.

JPEG Compression

JPEG is a format for lossy compression of images. This is the simplest and most wide-ranged used image format for compression.

  1. In GIMP, choose to save as a JPEG. You should see this dialog box:
