Photos are great but we need to police ourselves. They take up a lot of computer main frame space and that is space that is paid for by the web site owner. We still encourage members to use our Photo Page and use photos in their posts but we ask you to remember the site is free to you but someone pays for it.

In your photo albums please stick with photos of items directly related to this web site's theme Willys M Jeeps. Avoid duplification. Limit sizes of uploaded photos to a file size of 250K. This is the proper place for you to show your restoration's progress.

In the forum postings keep the photos used to a minimum in quantity and size to make your point. Individual photos used in forum posts are not to be any larger than 125K. If you need a larger reference photo then enter a link to it in your post. If you are using a post as a running documentary on your resto then only use the thumbnails for your photos and link to your photo album for the full size photos.

We appreciate your efforts to keep this web site affordable. Smile

Wes, i gain a great deal of knowledge daily from this site and truly
wish to follow the photo size parameters, trouble is i dont have a clue
on what to look for as to sizing photos. Perhaps you could provide a
short tutorial for those of us less enlightened?? Thx for all you do..

You can save it to your desktop and re-size it when you save it. You should see somewhere info telling you how big it is - kilobyte or megabyte-wise. That should help keep it in check. Then just upload from that new file.
I'm sure Wes or Ryan or somehow else has another method but that's what has worked for me.

You must have a photo work program on your PC to change the format, or size of a photo. Windows and Adobe both offer many photo working programs. Some programs show size by file size or bites of info which is what I use to establish the cutoff size of 125K file size. Some offer the width and height size for dimensioning the photo. Your computer will always be able to tell you the file size of any photo you have on it. You can usually just hold your cursor over the file title a few seconds and the file size and status will appear. Or you can right click on the photo file title and left click on "Properties" for the file size.

I have used Photo Suite for over 15 years for my photo working program with very few issues.

Also just about every digital camera has a selectable photo taking file size or as it may often be called Photo Quality selection. The better quality the photo the larger the file.

The other trick is to crop the unnecessary parts of the photo so only the primary object is used.

Another area that can make or break your photo use are the web sites you use to store them IE Photo Bucket and Webshots. These photo sites can be tailored to your needs by providing you selectable photo sizes for referencing to another web site by URL. Our own web site photo albums offer three sizes for referencing by URL which are thumb tab, 1/2 size and full size.

I cannot provide a step by step tutorial that will fit all PC's, all programs and all browsers. This is an issue where you must educate yourself to share web space fairly.

The website will automatically re-size photos to a certain degree. I was reminded of this the other day when I was uploading some photos from my new camera. The website sat there for an hour thinking about it. I then canceled and resized the photos to a much smaller format (50Kb) and it uploaded with no problems.

I am glad you guys are getting good info from the website as that is what it is all about.

Wes has been doing a lot of work on the membership admissions to keep out the spammers.

Thanks to everyone! Very Happy
