photos and images

The site will allow images only of a certain size, the size is so we can keep the database down in size so it loads faster as well as being able to back it up easily.

I to use Photobucket, it is easy to set up an account and easy to upload your pictures. You can organise your photos by album. This is especially useful if you want to display a large number of photographs on a particular topic on this forum. Rather than uploading each picture separately you just post a link to the relevant album in Photobucket.  An example of this is are the photos of the July Provincial Meet posted by Pargamatist : http://canampreppers.net/forum/index.php?topic=204.0

If you just want to upload one or two pictures to the forum just follow these simple instructions:

1. Once you have written to your reply to a post click on “Attachments and other options” at the bottom left of   the screen.

2. Using the “Attach” box use “Browse” to locate the file on your computer.

3. Once you have the name and location of the file in the “Attach” box you can either add more attachments or simply select “Post”

Be aware of the size of the file or files you are attaching to your post as you cannot make more than 4 per post and the TOTAL size of the attachment(s) cannot be more than 192KB.

The  maximum size of a picture that you can upload is 128K. There is a maximum of 4 per post with a total size of o 198K. I use Microsoft Office Picture Manager to compress mine it has an easy to use one click feature with a few options.  There are fancier programs out there but that one is easy to use. I am sure there are some freeware programs that will do the trick too.
