I'm not the board police, and I'm not trying to be a nit-picker, but here's something to think about:

If you post a picture, please consider sizing it so that it fits on the screen without scrolling. It's not hard to do (480 or 640 pixels wide, max is a good standard to go by) and it avoids screwing up a whole thread so that you have to scroll back and forth to read each sentence.

Those of us that are both chronologically and visually challenged don't really want to set our screen resolution much above 800x600, too dang hard ta see!

Here is an easy little utility for resizing images for posting. Down load it and you can resize images to the perfect size for posting. You can make them as big or small as you like. It has a preview option so that you can see it before posting.

I fount it on another board and it seems to work well. The link is through the board I found it on.

Just an idea.

Oops forgot the link. Try this.

Ok. What did I do wrong. I pasted the link in the optional URL Link space and it didnít work.

Just copy and past the address and past it into you borrower and it will work.

Iím such an idiot some days.

Thanks for putting up with me.

Besides making it fit the monitor it will load a LOT FASTER for viewing. I just hate it when I get a large picture (2+ MB) sent to me and all I get on my little monitor, without scrolling, is one eyeball. If others are working off phone lines and do not have highspeed internet service like me they too will like the smaller pictures.
My 2Ę worth.

now ya done it..........    Posted 11-03-2003 at 18:00:28       [Reply]  [No Email]
ok, you started this, tell me how to make sure it is 480 or 640 as ya say. I think I have it right, then post the pic and it's big as Dallas on the screen and takes two weeks to load. Info boy info!
We needs info!

When you get a picture out of your file in your Photo Program there is at the top of the page a item called "EDIT" click on it and you will see a bunch of words, click on "RE/SIZE" and you will see things with number sizes of pictures click on the 680 X 460 or something like that and it will shrink the photo down for posting reasons.

Maybe it's just me, Mark, but it seems like a lot of your pictures are way big. Not accusing, just observing. I've posted some bigguns myself and I wasn't too proud of it. ":^(

I post mine for the size of the page so you don't have to scrol to see them. That size is 680 X 480 I don't think I have posted a picture bigger than that? Mark H.

But everybody's monitor is different...
So if somebody has a 640x480 monitor (not to common these days) or like me has several windows opened at once so IE isn't open full screen they we still have to scroll.
480x360 would be a better max size.
