Photo size and download
#1
Is there a way to fix it so the photos auto resize when you bring them up and a way to down load the images. I would like a copy of some of the photos but havent figured out how to down load them.?:confused:

Hey Cyrel, it's possible to download the pics but it takes a little patience. As far as auto resize goes, I don't believe the forum software will do that. I'll have to check further into it.
In the meantime here's what I did: I noticed that the pics under KC7NUD's profile were HUGE (those were the biggest burgers and dogs I've ever seen and they made my mouth waterBig Grin). To download the pics I clicked on one of the thumbnails and waited for the much larger pic to load. The larger the pic the longer it takes to load. After that, I right clicked on the image and selected SAVE PICTURE AS and then saved it to a folder. Don't right click and save the thumbnail, it might be way too small. I then brought it up with my photo editing software (Adobe Photoshop). The size was way better and I didn't need to resize it. Windows Picture Viewer will do the same if you right click on the pic and select PREVIEW. Maybe we can get folks to edit their pics for size before uploading them. I know it might be a pain but it's alot easier to see all of a pic on a screen instead of parts of itWink

You guys looked like you all had a blast at Field Day. Lots of great pictures. I wished I could've made it but I had family in from out of town and couldn't get away. (Sigh) Now I have to wait another year.Sad

Cyrel, another thing that you can do is open a flckr account and post them that way, Its not that good for individual photos, However for groups its hard to beat.

+ for Photobucket!

Also, there is a function in vBulletin AND phpBB software to resize images but its mainly for when people upload them. So, if you're trying to upload a pic that's 1900x1600(or some other massive size), it automatically resizes to around 1024x768 or some other acceptable size for most people's browsers. i know that's not what you meant by resize, but it would help the issue.
Course, what do i know. It's been a few years since I've admin'ed a forum. the software may have been way updated by now. Smile

Ok it was the browser at work not a problem but it would be nice if they resized automaticly when you bring them up so they were easier to view.

Thanks everybody
