This topic needs to be re-visited, so I'm posting Norsky's request here again. Please remember to be kind to others when posting pics in the forums....


Posting a large picture in a thread
by Norsky

An old saying goes that 'a picture speaks a thousand words'. In cyber land large pictures equal millons of bytes of data. Large pictures are GREAT for use on profile pages, registry pages, and personal web pages (and are encouraged!), but in the forums, because of their higher 'look-n-see' activity, smaller is better - especially for signature images. Many members (myself included) for whatever reason do not have access to high speed internet connections. Using a dialup modem means suffering through long wait times for a page to display while a large picture is being downloaded (for example, pictures that load in seconds on a cable or network connection can take as many minutes to load on a modem connection).

Please be kind to all by making a smaller version of your picture (400 pixels wide or less) and using it as a hot link to the larger picture. That way those of us on slower connections can pick and choose which larger pictures to take a look at. If you need help resizing a picture feel free to ask any moderator for assistance. 


You can have a look at the "FAQs & Tips" section for more info and help. (Since the change in the forum software, the link in the original thread is no longer valid, but the "FAQ & Tips" link is)

Thanks!

Mea culpa.

When I broke the rule, you can just let me know, I can take it.

Sorry, a pet peeve of mine from when I worked.  When someone screwed up, management calls a meeting and chides everyone instead of discussing personally with the offender.

No one person in particular....it seems to be happening quite a bit lately...it's not "just you".  Handshake
 On smaller screens, folks have to scroll the page left/right to see the entire pic in sections, and it can get a little aggravating. It's also really hard on those still on dial-up.
Just a friendly reminder, not calling anyone out, or trying to be a harda$$ about it. Thumbs Up

Just kinda proves that you don't have to have a huge image on the forum pages....small ones(with links if needed) works best....which is the whole point of the thread & request....Thumbs Up
