Greetings all.
I would like to ask everyone to be reasonable with picture sizes. There is no need to post humangoes pictures that will completely mess up layout of this board and make messages very hard to read.

That does not apply for High Res Screenshots thread.


Thanks.

Unless there is small detail that can only be seen with higher res, I'd say 640x480 is plenty.

If you have a really large picture you can always post a link to it instead of including the picture itself.

Also consider making small preview pictures that will allow the users to choose which picture they actually want to see + download.

Always try to compress the files. Don't post BMP or TIF pictures, use JPG or GIF format instead to get small file sizes.
(I've recently seen a few BMP files in signatures with small dimensions but huge file sizes.)

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gifYou need to know what you want from a digital camera.
How much you want to spend?.
If you want to take photos at airdisplays then you will need a digital SLR with a good optical telephoto lens,someting like a Canon d10 or if you want an all round camera then something like a Canon g5.
It's up to you and your budget?

Rgr that TB but I guess what Ivan is really getting at is images that tend to be a bit 'wider' than the message body was intended to provide for. Thus causing a lateral scroll requirement as well.

Yes I agree, loading even 1024*1024 pics are harsh for my 56k connection, 800*600 and 640*480 load faster and I dont have to wait for an important pic to show up. Please lower the image sizes, of course like said above it High res thread can be loaded with big pics. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

640x480 is the size my camcorder takes pics so that works for me.

So no posting of giant 1900x1200 pics after every post then? Pity.

My preference is for 640x480, with 800x600 or a link if it absolutely must be bigger.

Converting to .jpg seems to give the best file size compression for larger images, .gif or .jpg for smaller images. It makes big difference to load times even on cable when the internet is busy.

Bmp files are a very bad format for intenet images. Apart from everything else, they chew through your hosting file transfer limits really quickly if you're hosting on a site with limits. Using formats like .jpg or .gif that have file compression considerably eases the strain.

For a nice little utility for image format conversion and resizing, check out Irfanview (http://www.irfanview.com/)

Good point Ivan. I love seeing the huge pictures, but I HATE reading the stuff in the thread after that...Gotta scroll all over the place.

If you need to re-size pictures then IrfanView would not be my first choise. Its a great viewer/converter but like Photoshop it's not at its best for resizing pictures.

Easy Thumbnail Converter does a far better job at it (and is free too):

I thought LOMAC forum had a limit of 600x800 pic sizes. Serial moderators can just edit the pics into links (applause applause), they have enough serial mods now.

At teh old lexx.com the serial moderators would take out any pic over 30k, without comment. No, they would pup a small note "edited for pic size" ... short and energy efficient. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

If you use Imageshack to host your pic, they give you several options for the URL, including clickable thumbnails. http://imageshack.us/index3.php
