    FAQ About Pics posting and Resizing

    How do I post a pic?
    You must use the "New Topic" or "Post Reply" buttons found at the top and bottom of each page. You can't use the quick reply area at the bottom is you want to post pics.

    After you go to the "Post Reply" page and type in your message, scroll down to the "Attatchments" area where you will see a "browse" button that allows you to browse your harddrive for the pic. Just select the pic you want, then upload it, and submit your message:

    Resizing Pics

    Please try to resize your pictures to 640 x 480 before you upload them to either the forum or the photo gallery. Not only does it make the pictures easier to see as they fit within the framework of the forum, but it keeps bandwidth down and bandwith = $$$$$$!!!!!!!

    The easiest way is to try this online resizer. GREAT. Hemi found it for us and says that she selected one of her honkin' 6.2 megapixel 3 MB pics and it spit out a 37k file. Slick. Once your photo shows up, just right click on it and save it to your hard drive (might need to rename it?)

    If you do not have a program that resizes, some of the users of this forum use some free software found here. www.irfanview.com

    I haven't tried it but they say its free and it works. If you don't know how to resize, you can always contact me or eddie via pm.

    Just found another one for XP users. This is the best one I have seen and by far the easiest to use. It is one of the Microsoft PowerToys. All you need to do is follow the appropriate link below to go to the download page and save the ImageResizer.exe to your hard drive. Double click on the ImageResizer.exe file you just saved to your hard drive and follow the directions to do the install.

    To resize a pic on your hard drive:
    1) Right click on the pic (you can also resize an entire group of pictures at once by highlighting all of them and right clicking)
    2) Select "Resize Pictures"
    3) Check the box to resize pic to small 640x480 (for this site at least)
    4) It will automatically create a new pic with a new name in the same folder
    5) Or if you want to replace the orig pic, check the box to resize orig pic. NOTE - This will overlay the original, so make sure you want to do it.

    If you have upgraded to Windows Vista you will notice that Microsoft does not make the PowerToy Resizer for Vista (yet).
    Here is a resizer that works on Vista and is very similar to the Microsoft powertoy resizer in the post above. I used it to resize about 100 pics so far and it works great. It will also work on Win XP and 2000.
