    Why posting big pictures is not a good idea........


    Just some reasons why I don't like big pictures.
    How it affects users:

    ~ you alienate 56k users because of the filesize, takes ages to download
    ~ you cannot see the whole car in the browser window

    How it affects you, the author:

    ~ we cannot give an opinion cos we don't see the whole car
    ~ some people (probably most) don't appreciate having to scroll around to see a picture, it's like looking at a jigsaw
    ~ your future 'picture' posts will get less of an audience.


    Suggestions to help you:

    ~ Obviously resize your pictures before posting
    ~ Use a host that allows heavy viewing (ie not geocities)
    ~ Try www.imageshack.us When uploaded, the site gives you the tags to post, also shows you tags for a thumbnail so you have that choice.

    For example what do you prefer:



    or:

    Mayby that can be a new part of the forum.

    A help page for noobies who know nothing about graphics. You could have a list of image and video hosts, and small tuts on how to resize and upload images.

    Im game for that

    Fully agree with Coo - many a time I can't be bothered to scroll around the page to see the piccy, so I just dive for the back button and read something else.

    640x480 is best for veiwing.

    BTW those with WinXP can get a free 'powertoy' from the microsoft website that adds a resize image option to good old right click. Simple instant and useful.
