This MIGHT help:
http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=105605
but you need to resize your photos with an app, or some folks simply email their photos to themselves, and they are reduced in the process. On my android phone I use an app called PHOTO & PICTURE RESIZER. On my laptop, I use the program that came with it.

I'm pretty sure someone will come along and explain it better!!

Welcome to the Forum!

Take some time and read through a few threads to acquaint yourself with the Forum:

Don't know if you have any of the manuals to your Cub, but now that you’ve logged your 2nd post, you'll have access to the all the PDF Manuals on this site. There’s a few ways to do that:
  • From a desktop or laptop, go to "Quick Links" in the upper left corner of your screen. Hit that and a pull-down appears where you'll find "PDF Manuals".
  • You can also go to “Cub Info” in the upper toolbar, then hit “Rudi’s Manuals”. From there, you can access a variety of information.
  • If you're using a phone, go to the "Links Directory" (second category down the main page). Once in "Links Directory" , scroll down to the second section "Tractor Parts & Manuals" and you'll find them there.

You'll be able to download an Owner's Manual (very strongly recommended) and any service manuals that interest you. Implement Manuals are also available.

We’d encourage you to take the Safety Test located in the Safety Forum: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=68084

Might also enjoy reading through this thread (even though it’s for a Cub, much can be applied to any tractor just brought home): What to do with a Cub you just brought home

There are a lot of good threads dealing with Cub repair and maintenance in the How To Forum. Located here: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=11

Limiting your pics to 500kb, take some pictures of your tractor and post them, we’d like to see them.

Remember:
• When you have a specific question, start a new thread in the appropriate sub-forum.
• Before posting, use the Preview button before hitting Submit--it'll show you exactly what your post will look like, including pictures.
• When adding your comments to a thread, be sure to look at the date of the last poster. If it’s more than a 6 months old, the posters are probably not going to see it. Consider starting a new thread.

Glad you joined us.

I'll add my welcome as well! This is a great site, with lots of institutional knowledge on all Farmall models. All you have to do is ask, if you have a problem with your Cub.

On the photos - if you have Windows on a desk or laptop computer, upload your pictures from your phone to the desktop, then open them in Paint. Hit the resize drop down and type 400 in the pixel option. Then save to your desktop and upload those to the forum. After a few times you'll get the hang of it. It seems like you're going around your elbow to get to your thumb, but it works.

Again, welcome!

Looks like you got the hang of attaching pics. Also appears you're knee-deep in your Cub... :{_}:
