I made a custom two stage trigger for my qb78 and tried to post the pictures, but I get a message that says they are invalid. What does this mean? Are you allowed to post such things? Or am I doing something wrong?

Depends on the format of image you're trying to post, and how you're trying to post it. Are you putting the images on a server then linking to them? Or using the 'browse' dialogue to find the images on your computer and upload them? If the former, perhaps the links are broken somehow. If the later, then likely the image files are too large. I don't know the exact file size limit, but generally with PHPBB forums I would suggest sticking to 400kb or smaller files, and picture dimensions of 800x600 or so, perhaps slightly larger but not sure. Most digital cameras save images in the order of 10 times larger than that or even larger, so the forum software will not permit such large files being posted for reasons of server storage limitations.

In case you need new software for resizing and other image edits, I recommend XnView. I've used it for many years and really like the various editing tools and relative speed and simplicity compared to things like Photoshop.
