Tips on posting pics.......

1.* At the bottom of a new post or reply, check the box that says "Attach Image(s)".
2.* Scroll down and click "Browse" to browse to the pic that you want to post.
3.* Keep adding pics below the first pic for multiple pic submission.

The max size is 9,765 kb per pic.* A good reasonable size will be around 1024x768 pixels.* The upload will not be too slow and the quality will be very good.


Good Luck!

RE: Tips on posting pics.......

Test test test.

Carey, first off, thanks for your patience.* We're glad you're hangin' in there.* Lemme see if I can go thru this step by step.

Step 1: Check "attach image" in the lower left hand corner.


Step 2: When you do, there will be a section that pops up down below labeld "File Upload".* Clcik the Browse button.


Step 3:*When you click "Browse", what you are actually doing is browsing your own hard drive.* Check the folders that you want to browse and click the photo/file you want.* You have the opportunity to select multiple pics as evidenced by the multiple browse lines.

Step 4: Once you have selected all of the photos you want, click "upload files" bottom center.

Step 5:*After you do that, just hit "submit post".* Simple as that.

Note: If the buttons are appearing but are not "active"(they don't click), that is usually a function of Java.* Java sends out updates almost every week and I know some of us are suspicious of these and don't perform the update.* The above problem is usually a function of not having the most recent updates.* They can be found at Java.com.

Note:The bigger the file is the longer it will take to upload for no real advantage.* All of my pics are less than 100kb and upload in just a few seconds.* If your are trying to upload pics that are up in the megabyte range it can take minutes.* So resizing your pic is advantageous.*

Carey, we hope you get it worked out and let us know what is going on.

John

*** ** Thanks! Once I switced to firefox, all was fine. I got a photo to attach to the "You show me yours" thread (maybe that's not quite how it was worded). Now I'll see if I can get a photo to attach to all future postings.

RE: Tips on posting pics.......

I have Windows XP, and all of my photos are about 1.5MB. How do I resize them to your recommended size?
I truly am computer illiterate!

Hey Jon,

If you google "pic resizer" it will give you a ton of different free programs that you can download to resize your pics.* I honestly think you can upload a large file but it just takes longer and there is no benefit.* I think it takes longer for us to open it as well.* There is potentially another way to do it by right clicking and then choose "edit" and then you can adjust the "skew" in percentages of size.* Just make sure you do it equally for horizontal and longitudinal or you will have one funny looking picture.* I use "PIXresizer".

http://www.ezresize.com/

Try that.* You are going to have to browse your hard drive for the file you want and then choose the percentage you want to size it to.* I also recommend using a copy so you can maintain the full res original.

Many thanks John,
I did the skew thing at 50% squared and it dropped it to 25% of original file size.
Who says us old dogs can't learn new tricks!

RE: Tips on posting pics.......

"Isle of Skye" is*a 1971 Bruckman designed C&C 37ft trawler???.
I'm told it was commissioned by the commodore of the Royal Canadian Yacht Squadron to use as a committee boat. The hull is patterned on a Nova Scotian lobster boat and is powered by a HT 6354M Perkins which was rebuilt after 14000 hrs. and, hopefully,is on it's next 14K
