It would be nice to be able to have some other choice to upload photos here besides .PNG. Allowing only the .PNG format requires the person posting to modify their photos first using Paint or Photoshop.

Not so many people add attachments to their feedbacks, so it's not real important to rush this one.

I like Boots' idea. I also think it is strange that you can attach up to 100MB of txt or png files to posts in the Feedbacks section, but you can't attach anything to a Private Message (Foldit E-Mail). I think it would be useful to have all the different file attachment options in both places.

It would be nice to attach files. allowing us to share recipe's to individuals

Which would also be nice *hint hint* share to specific people, or share to Buddy List perhaps.

The fewer vectors for attack the better imo, GIMP is one useful free application which does much of what Photoshop does for prosumer users on Windows, not sure about other OS.
Private Messages in foldit are just that, not email, any logged in user could send you attachments in PMs and even if you trusted the sender as a folder you would need to save and scan, as they may have malware on their devices. Again, imo I'd prefer the foldit devs focus on tools etc. If someone wants to give you an email address they can, it is their responsibility not foldit's.
