You'll see the maximum sizes allowed for both file size and dimensions (in pixels) in the Management Attachments box that pops up when you attach an image to a post here. It's currently set to a maximum file size of 260000 bytes (shown as 253.9KB) for JPEG images, with the allowed dimensions set to a longest side of 1024 pixels.

See the second post in this thread showing that box with the maximum sizes allowed. If you exceed the maximum allowed sizes, the forums software will attempt to downsize and recompress the images using a lower JPEG Quality. So, it's best to resize them yourself to meet the forum limitations to avoid any loss of quality.
