Attention Gwen re posting photos

Postby earwig » Feb 12, 2009 8:49 am

Hi Gwen, welcome to the forum BTW, you had a question re posting photos in the L soup thing but I thought I would give you my findings here.

I use the attachment vs the linking from photo sites as I find easier plus the fact if you use a larger image, one can click to enlarge after the forum shrinks to 500 pixels width wise. One canot do that when linking from a phot site.

If use 500 pixels or larger when uploading, it should not show the file name - at least in mine experimenting.

450 pixels

500 pixels

1600 pixels which then were reduced but if you click - it enlarges which is really too big , I usually go with 800 or 1200

I hope this helps, lots of great free downloads for resizing, and quite easy to use. I find just as quick to resize as it is to upload to a photo site but everybody is different so best to try both and go which is best for you.

As Betty has given a very good outline of the uploading of pics, one should note you can also have a "clickable" version when linking from Photobucket.
Just use the clickable thumb code and remove the _th part.

If you use the IMG code, you will get the "forum size " of the same image.

I don't often use the "clickable" mode since the size here isn't too bad. I also don't upload huge versions of pics, since I still have dial-up.

Sharon,
Where does one find the clickable thumb code?
I use photobucket, but I don't see that option. Thanks

Hi: It may be possible that the clickable thumb is only available with a paid membership.
In my situation, the code appears as a box beneath the IMG code.(5th one down)

That must be a feature for paid members, Sharon, I only have 4 options below my photos. What is the mazimum pixel size in the largest dimension that you can load onto this site from your own photo files, i.e uploading, (not bucketing) ?

Good thread; I saw this question and hoped you would answer, Betty.

You've been busy while I've been away! Here are some tests:

Using photobucket and the IMG tag:

Betty, I'm glad to learn that the name of the picture won't show over 500 pixels. I find the name, which is usually a personal conglomeration takes away from the picture itself.

Hi Gwen:
A good test.
A very nice pic of your garden.

Kat: I have no idea how big a pic can be that is uploaded here. I always have to have a reasonable size for dial-up mode.

I am not sure of the pixel size but I find with anything more than 1200, one has to scroll unless one has a very large screen,and then that loses the whole effect of the photo.

Now the max bytes is 2 mb I think - or it was, who knows what changes as changes change. I mostly use 800 and I have my resizer set to 75 kb as it is the byte size that really slows things down for dial-uppers. I now have wireless but remember those days well.

Gwen, what a lovely garden you have there.

Joan w, glad to be of help, not that I am completely sure I am right.
