800x600

Yip.

I mostly never go over 700 wide, but 800x600 should be fine for most.

I also use irfanview and then save the .jpg to 80% quality.
The pictures are still big enough to view 'lekker', but small enough in size to load quick.

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

This image is only 88k, but it appears very large on screen and the overall quality is still very good for viewing on screen. I made it 1000 long which will make the image fill most of the screen when using 1280X1024 resolution. The image was cropped to be a panoramic.

Awesome pic DustDevil !

I can recommend FastStone: http://www.faststone.org/
Very nice picture viewer, but also (important!) batch operations for resizing, renaming, etc. Point it at a folder, give it the resize specs, name an output folder and Bob's yer uncle.

Also includes a fine screen capture utility.

Thanks Growweblaar, I find this very easy and users friendly. It gives you the option to keep you original 'large format photos' but do a easy batch re size and store in another folder for quick uploads. Was doing it the old one by one way in Microsoft office picture viewer before. I recommend Faststone!  :thumleft:

Easiest way to resize is to select all photos.

Then Right Click  --> say send to Mail recipient.

It asks you if you wish to resize. Say yes.

Then once the mail is open select all the phones again (click on the first until it is highlighted, hold shit down and click on the last image) Right click. Say copy. Go to any folder and say paste.

This may only work if you have office installed

I came right with all the resizing and that but my problem is to add comments to photos.

Do you write a comment for say pic 1 in your message column, then attach pic 1, write comment for pic 2 in the message column and then attach pic 2?

If you are using the "Additional Options" to attached photos, they always go to the bottom of the e-mail below the message text.

If you want to have text, then photo, more text and another photo etc. you must use this photo icon. See below

Thanks GM,

I had a couple of test runs on the admin section and with some help from Eisbein (The same as what you've suggested) I got it right.

Cheers

probeer VSO Image resizer, dit neem letterlik monder as 10 sekondes om 'n foto te resize en jy kan selfs dit bulk resize groter of kleiner maak. dit werk vir my, het dit gratis gedownload.

Thanks Pote, ek sal hom try.

So by the way, is jy happy met jou 800?

Ek het een gevat vir 'n test ride en was nogal aangenaam verras met sy responsiveness. Die probleem wat hulle hier op die forum mee gedeel het met die vurke het ek ook ervaar, veral toe ek die remme getoets het, het die neus baie gesak, maar dis nie hierdie massive probleem dat die bike nou comdemn moet word nie. Ek dink dis 'n great bike, sommer "bakgat". Definitief my tweede keuse. (Lees my introduction)

ek stem die 800 is 'n lekker masjien en die neus kan nogals duik as mens hard rem, gebruik net die regte verhouding van voor en agter remme en dis fine, 1ste rat is nogals 'n bietjie sensitief maar na die 2de keer wat jy hom/haar ry kom dit ook reg.

Ok, I got a bit lost reading all of the above (it is a bit late for intelligent thought).

Can someone tell me what size the pictures should end up before they're posted (width, height' etc)

I've got quite a few for a RR and i've got photoimpact loaded on this here PC of mine.
always aim for 100....or as close as you can get...sometimes i mail them to myself, en then save them,...the quickest way if its just one or two....

Guys... and Gals... Microsoft has a photo reziser plug in that works (imho the only product of theirs that does!) just download it from MS site at the Power Toys link;
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx
Called ImageResizer.exe
Some other cool toys there as well btw.
Once you installed it you just right click on an image (either when open or on it's icon in explorer) and you can then select a size, it also does a batch of files inside a folder or as highlighted. Magic! :thumleft:

The big pictures is nice but it makes it difficult to fully enjoy the thread.

I use Irfanview to resize.

640 x 480 pixels works fine for the forum.

Free and easy to use.

http://www.irfanview.com/

Any other programs/methods to re-size?

Maybe make it sticky Admin?
