    What to do about this error message?

    The file that you have tried to attach is too big. The maximum size is 358400 bytes.

    Can I resize it and not lose the EXIF info?

    Are you talking about when you are uploading an image to the gallery here? If so, then you will need to resize the image. The max is 1024 and 350K. One of the things you want to do also, if preparing an image for the web.... is resample it (cropping is the easiest way to do this, even if you crop it to full size) to 72 dpi. For printing you want 200-300 dpi, but 72 is ideal for viewing on the web. And, if you do any sharpening then do it last... after resizing.

    Good advice by Mike. I just wanted to add this tidbit: Make sure you don't resize the original copy but make a dupe copy to work on.
