Peter, I am using my smugmug account and used this
to bring them across in the appropriate size. The actual pictures are uploaded to Smugmug at 10mp which is about 2 MB/pic. which is what I have uploaded to my First Class web space and then I can't/don't know how to reduce them. This is at my one Club layout. It is the only club layout in the state of Georgia, USA that is available to the public.
Hmmm! I must be the class dummy again. I just attempted a "new topic" post with two photos and the whole works just disappeared when I hit the submit button. Oh well! I'll experiment some more when I have time.
Might as well try this. Haven't had much luck lately! Well I see it but it was way to big, shrunk it some and will submit to see what happens.
Downloaded the "resize" link which worked great, resized the image and deleted the original. Now that wasn't to smart! Trying the new and resized image.
OK, worked fine - but, I couldn't find it in the images list of my 1st class web space when I clicked on the "insert image" icon. When I went directly to images uploaded it was there so I copied the URL and pasted it. Maybe it just takes more time for the image to appear on the list than I gave it.
Jeff - don't know if you deliberately removed the image or not, but it doesn't exist in your 1st Class web space. Also (just FYI), ampersands (&) and parenthesis in your filenames are going to cause you grief.
I inadvertantly deleted the original image then replaced it with the resized image. However, after I uploaded the image into my 1st Class web space it doesn't appear in the list of images when I click on the "insert image" icon. All the old pictures are there but not the two new ones, OR&L 001 (small) and OR&L 002 (small). I'll rename them without the parenthesis and ampersand and try again.
Yea Dwight and Jeff for getting it done. I'm not savy enough to be trying to teach someone else. I see the long awaited new menu bar is up and running. That will make a lot of picture stuff really managable for guys like me. Thanks Shad and all that helped.
It might be worth mentioning again for those new to the forums, and just as a general refresher...
Filenames should be restricted to letters, numbers, the hyphen ( - ) and the underscore ( _ ). Avoid using spaces, punctuation marks (periods, quotes, colons, semicolons, exclamation points, etc.), and other special characters, (*, *, %, $, #, @, etc.) in filenames as these don't translate well into URLs. Examples: Loco # 1 on Trestle.jpg
will cause problems if you try to post it, and should be renamed:
the period after No will mess things up. The only period in a filename should be the one right before the three-letter file extension (jpg in this case).
Parenthesis are also a problem. This is especially common since Windows will automatically insert them when copying a file:
Before uploading this file, rename it to eliminate the (1)
Photos should also be resized to no more than 640 pixels maximum width to comply with forum rules. Anything larger than that will be converted to a simple link by the first moderator who sees it. If you need help resizing photos, post a question in the forums or email a moderator for assistance.
