Hi
Use a photo program to reduce their size - you should have one with your operating system as I do, but I usually use Adobe Photoshop 6 which I have as well. If you don't think you have one Irfanview is good and it's freeware. I have had it on my computers for years and use it for all normal photo viewing. You can download Irfanview and its plugins (several choices of download locations) here. http://www.irfanview.ca/main_download_engl.htm

On my computer, I can do a "save as" while viewing any jpeg, then use the option to adjust the resolution down to about +/-250k or so.

To show photos on Sailnet, you'll need to host them at another site first, like Flickr. Then choose a size and copy and paste the link into your post using the little yellow mountain/sun icon you see in the toolbar of the compose window.

Why do you have to host pics on another sire like flicker first? This pic was taken 5 minutes ago as a 10 megapixel pic. I just opened it and changed size and saved at a bit lower quality. Not my boat by the way but a nice one. While I used Irfanview I think Windows will do the same.

They have to be a max of 600 x 800 and 97.7 kb in file size, so will have to be downsized anyway by the computer. Digicams that took that small a picture haven't been available for a decades I don't think.

Using a free account like Photobucket works well, pictures are resized to appropriate dimensions and it's easy to paste the IMG Code, so that the pics show directly in the post.

Seems more reliable than SN's attachment routine.

Oh, that works alright I guess. But nobody can see the pics unless they're signed in.

Nice shot, by the way! Very pretty Channel Cutter.

One of my neighbors owns the Bristil Channel Cutter - he built it from the ground up - literally. including hull and deck - he layed the hull and decks up in the molds himself and did an awesome job. I am always signed in so always see pics.

Brian,

I sign in and out during the day -- mostly because I get dumped from the system if I'm inactive for more than half an hour or so. Also, because I don't won't want anybody else (i.e., kids) fiddling with my moderator buttons. It would be a real shame if they accidentally "disappeared" Sailingdog's entire 35K post history by pressing the SPAM button.


P.S. Give your neighbor my compliments! That truly is a beautiful example of a BCC. And the photo really captured it.
