Please keep the picture sizes 800 X 600 or smaller in resolution. These massive pictures at huge resolutions (example: 1280 X 960 or 1800 X 1600) are un-necessary because MOST people don't even use that large of a resolution for their desktop. This results in the window on the screen forming a scroll bar at the bottom, making text go off the screen, and basically being an annoyance.

Any pictures that are wider then 800 will be removed. Height isn't as much of an issue because everyone scrolls up and down. I don't want to sound harsh, but I don't like having to root through files resizing everything so it fits. It's not hard to resize a picture.

Thank you!

Yes, i know with my site it still probably won't work right, hopefully i can find a different way to get them to automatically resize. At least keep them 800 by 600

Can't you guys put a cap on the upload size of the pictures?? Just wondering, I've most likely been guilty of a few big pics. Sometimes just get a little excited to show some new pics or whatever and forget!

Offshore24- Just select reply at the bottom of a post and when you are transferred to the next page you click on the paperclip icon and then follow the instructions.

Oh yeah, you can't do it from the quick reply on the bottom of the thread page, you have to select reply.

I got the picture to come up when I replied to this topic. But when I tried to make a new topic under the My Sled forum it just shows up as an attachment and not a picture.

Jim H, it is easy to make them smaller if you have a photo editing application such as PhotoShop or the like, just open the pic in photoshop and then go to IMAGE then IMAGE SIZE and resize from there....easy! I don't know about other programs though....if there is a picture that you need resized and you don't have photoshop, I would be happy to do it for you, just send a private message and let me know where the pic is.....

I can't upload pictures. When I click the paperclip, nothing happens. I've been having this problem for a couple weeks now.

Make sure you don't have any pop up blockers blocking it form poping up.
