Picture size. WTF.
« on: February 03, 2014, 10:34:10 am »
Dude, I can't put hardly any photos on this site cuz the pic size limit is what it is. How can we bump up the size? I love the fact that there's now a dedicated 690 site, but I wanna post some damn pics! >:(

Hey Seabeegt,

There's unfortunately a limit on the size of pics you can UPLOAD to the forum.  This is because the site is free and I can't afford to pay for more server space.  The good news, though, is that there are many sites to which you can upload your photos, then paste the copied URL in the body of your post (a la the Mona Lisa icon).  This way, you can post pics at full resolution/size if you like:



The only pic I recommend uploading directly to the site is your profile pic (which should be small anyway).

I use the Picasa website (http://picasa.google.com).  There are other pic hosting sites, but Picasa's free.  ;)

I'm not a huge computer geek & I know this forum is just starting out so we might not have enough members (YET) but would a fund raiser or donation period be a consideration down the road to help improve the website. I know I wouldn't mind contributing to a good cause.

Thanks for the 411. I'll use Picasa in the future.  And if ya'll start a fundraiser, I'll donate for sure. 8)

I appreciate the thought, but at this point I'd rather this site operate as a labor of love.   ;D

I use Microsoft Office PowerPoint to reduce the sized of my picture by compressing the picture; works for everything I've tried so far.
