<b>Regarding Pictures on this, and other, forums </b> Please follow these guidelines: 1. once you have taken your screenshot - use PAINT (note - NOT photoshop) and resize it to around 800 x 600 and then SAVE it as a JPEG. This will make it around 50Kb per screenshot. USE paint, or if you HAVE to use photoshop - use a POOR quality setting, YOU CANNOT TELL THE DIFFERENCE FOR THIS IDEA, as this will keep them SMALL in size (around 50kb instead of 200kb). 2. Once you have saved it, now RESIZE the picture AGAIN to around 250x175 or so. Then SAVE THIS AS A JPEG FILE AND CALL IT THUMB!!!!! So then you have two files: 1. Desktop.jpg 2. Thumb.jpg Now - use some nice coding from the forums to create the IMAGE of the thumb on the forum which is an ACTIVE LINK to the picture size. This will ensure that loading this thread will take seconds, EVEN for a 56k modem user. So they see a small version (only 16kb or so) and click if they want to see more. Then they can see the full sized version (which can be any size you like) in a new window. See my example below <A href=´http://www.pathfinderstudios.com/PICTURES/29.JPG´ Target=_Blank><img src=´http://www.pathfinderstudios.com/PICTURES/29thumb.jpg ´></a> The code for this is (*subsitute square brackets instead of the curly ones) {url=http://www.pathfinderstudios.com/PICTURES/29.JPG}{img=http://www.pathfinderstudios.com/PICTURES/29thumb.jpg}{/url} There we go, obviously change the links to YOUR host of pictures <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> The image above is only about 100x75 - so yours will be alot bigger of course - which is nice to <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>. In effect you could do this in a thread containing one picture or around 300 x 225 or so - which is linked to the full size version <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> Edited by - Chips on 4/9/2004 6:44:36 AM Edited by - Chips on 4/9/2004 6:47:45 AM
