Resizing and Posting Photos
Some people have trouble resizing and posting photos, so I wrote down step by step method I use:
The following method is using PhotoImpression on Windows XP. Assuming your photos are in a folder in MY PICTURES, enter the folder, and click on the photo to be resized. Click on FILE and go down to OPEN WITH and click on PhotoImpression. (This program loads slow, so give it plenty of time.) After the photo is loaded, click on EDIT, then go to the lower right corner, and click on the WIDTH box that has numbers. (I entered 650.) Use the backspace key to delete these numbers, then type in 650, and click on RESIZE. Click on SAVE and SAVE AS, then a small Window appears. The resized photo needs a destination, so click on SAVE IN, and click on MY PICTURES. Now click on SAVE AS TYPE, and click on JPEG. Click on FILE NAME, and enter a name or number . . . I usually enter 1 or A. Click on SAVE. Another small Window appears which says . . . ADD TO ALBUM. Click yes. When hourglass disappears, click on X in upper right corner of the screen, and you'll go back to the folder you opened.
When you go back to MY PICTURES and place the Mouse's arrow over the photo, it should display . . . DIMENSIONS: 650 x 487, TYPE: JPEG File, and SIZE: 131 KB. (These readings will vary with each photo.)
(Remember to give PhotoImpressions plenty of time, especially with BITMAP files, as they use a lot of memory.)
To insert Attached Thumbnails: Click on MANAGE ATTACHMENTS in ADDITIONAL OPTIONS box, which is directly below the REPLY TO THREAD box. A new Window appears . . . take note of File Type, Max Files Size, Width, Height, etc. (Basically all are; 800 x 800 and 97.7 KB.) Click on long rectangular box where it says; Upload File from your Computer. Type in MY PICTURES and click on BROWSE, and this will take you to MY PICTURES. (You don't need capital letters when you type in my pictures.) Click on photo and click on OPEN, then click on UPLOAD. Give it time to upload, which will be displayed just below the BROWSE box. When finished, click on Close This Window, and Submit Your Reply.
To insert photo with your message: Click on PHOTO GALLERY, and a new page appears. Below the RANDOM IMAGES box, click on UPLOAD. In IMAGE OPTIONS box click in VIEW ALLOWED EXTENSIONS and type in MY PICTURES, and click on BROWSE. A smaller window appears displaying MY PICTURES folders, files, etc. Click on photo to highlight it, and click on OPEN. On IMAGE TITLE and DESCRIPTION boxes, type in info, such as, steamers!. Click on CATEGORY and choose your own category . . . I chose Various Engine Photos. Read USER AGREEMENT and click on small box if you agree, then click on SUBMIT, and it'll be displayed on another screen.
If you want to upload more photos, repeat the above instructions?
To add a photo to your posting, click on PHOTO GALLERY and click on your thumbnails. If your thumbnails aren't displayed, search by USER NAME . . . click on USER NAME box and type in your name and click on SEARCH NOW and they will be displayed on a new page.
Click on thumbnail to display new page of a larger image. Go down to BB IMAGE CODE. The long rectangular box will display something like this:
Place mouse arrow to the very left of this box and hold down the left button while moving to the right. This will highlight it. Right click on it, then left click COPY. Now click on back button until your back to your thread. In your message box, left click at the end of your message, then press enter to move cursor down to a new line. Right click, then left click on PASTE, and this will appear . . .
To enter another photo in your message, repeat the above, and enter your new image below this one . . . like this:
(Note: It won't display a picture at this time . . . only after its been submitted.)
Print this off and use as a guide. I felt like I had 10 thumbs until I did it a few times.
Note: I had to edit the BB IMAGE CODE I typed in with the .....blah, blah, as it wouldn't appear on the post!
