Here are a few notes to help with uploading pictures.
To keep things from getting out of hand I have set a few limits on file size, and pictures must come within these dimensions:
Maximum width: 800 pixels
Maximum height: 800 pixels
Maximum file size: 300KB
Update: The forum software will resize your images if necessary, so you can just go ahead and upload them.
Preparing your image files
Save your photos as .jpg files as this gives by far the best balance of file size and quality
At this size, pictures are large enough to show up well but will still fit on the screen and not take forever to download. If you feel that these cramp your style too much then you are welcome to upload pictures to your own web space and post a link to them in your message here.
Most decent graphics software will allow you to resize pictures easily. If you haven't got a program to do this though, there are plenty available to download such as PaintStudio Lite
which is free and will do the job easily.
Uploading your pictures
When you have clicked on new thread
, post reply
as appropriate, scroll down the page to the Additional options
Click on the Manage Attachments
button and a new window will pop up. Click the Browse
button and find the image file on your computer. When you have selected it repeat for other images and click on Upload
When you submit your message the uploaded files will be attached (although they won't show in the message preview)
Let me know if you have any problems and I'll be happy to help.
