problems uploading photos

As an aside ' date=' I would urge people to load the pics directly in to this website rather then linking to third party image stores. ( consistent with copyright etc ) SO many pics are lost on older websites because the image store is now longer accessible ( as any perusal of the yuku version etc will demonstrate )[/quote']


Very good point. Any images added here will persist forever :)

It's not easy or straightforward? What sort of forum is this?


1. Select Insert Image




2. Select file 'From Computer'

Hi 16miller

Sometimes an image JPG can be too large in terms of file size to upload on some sites. It's a good idea to always reduce the size of an image that came directly off a camera or smartphone. Suggest reducing JPG image to 1024 pixals wide before attaching here or uploading to a photo hosting site. This has the added benefits of much faster upload, as well as faster display time. A photo on a camera or smartphone can be anything between 3mb and 10mb file size, but if reduced to 1024px wide will only be about 200k in file size. Retaining the original image size is of no benefit as websites generally only show about 1024 pixals wide on a screen.
