    One week to go....pictures advice plse

    Hi folks.

    As you may have guessed from the title. I get it a week today. Will off course be posting pictures, but need some tips so they appear correctly here (i.e. not too big).

    All tips appreciated,

    Cheers,

    JZ

    Re: One week to go....pictures advice plse

    I have a 4MP camera, and I tend to reduce to 1/3 size and save as jpg before uploading by attaching a file after previewing the text. The forum sometimes squashes up photos a little if they are too big, so they look bad. You can always edit the post, delete the attachment and re-attach a slightly re-sized image if it looks odd.

    Re: One week to go....pictures advice plse

    I use photobucket.com which resizes the pics as you submit them, then just add the link to your post using the image functionality on this site - cutting and pasting the URL from the photobucket site.

    Remember lots of pics JZ - did you say you'd make the New Forest run?

    Re: One week to go....pictures advice plse

    How big should a picture be to not "stretch" the available space?

    If you have Adobe Photoshop Elements, open the picture you want to post in Photoshop, go to "image" on the top toolbar, then "resize" then "image size" and reduce to about 800 x 650 pixels. (You'll find if you reduce one dimension the other will automatically reduce in proportion). Save, and then attach that picture to your post. Dead easy. Even an IT dinosaur like me can do it!

    Re: One week to go....pictures advice plse

    Good advice!

    An alternative site is imageshack.us or fotopic.net, both free. I use 640 wide in the photos but 800 is not much bigger and you get a lot more detail!
