Agree. Bike entrances/exits on the Brooklyn Bridge sucks. (nm)velocity

Paging onespeed-your file is way too large.MB1

I could barely open even one picture and couldn't see it without "saving as" and reducing. Your images are over 2000 pixels wide.

For best viewing reduce the width to no more that 525 pixels before posting like I have done with your first image here.

BTW your post looks lovely and I would very much like to see the whole thing, could you resize and re-post?

I like being able to count the ants on that bridge.

Works great for large batches of photos. I punch in 800 pixels and it shrinks my 1024 pixels down to RBR size regardless if landscape or portrait and keeps the aspect ratio. Pretty straight forward to use. It has a number of other image utilities as well. Best of all it's free! Photoshop has this capability too I understand.

Cool pics, but most of us here probably don't have DSL.

I didn't even see one picture until Mark resized one of them! Didn't want to have to scroll all over the place seeing only a part of an image at a time.

Looks like they could be nice though. Could you re-size them and repost?

Thanks for wasting my time!Alexx

Crikey!! If I'd known that this was going to be a bunch of huge pics of filthy streets and traffic in NYC, I would not have bothered. This d@mn thing froze my desktop for nearly 5 minutes!!! Haven't you ever heard of THUMBNAILS???

Onespeed, some more info:

600 pixels width is great for most web browsers.

72 dpi because our monitors cannot display any finer resolution, and run through your jpeg compression (40-50%)to get the files down around 30-40K without loss of quality.

No problems viewing pictures. Using Opera browser. Perhaps this made a difference.

Although they did take a little longer than usual to download.

Anyway, nice post. I moved back to NC from New York City last spring, but I miss NYC and will probably return someday. Your pics made me want to go biking around Central Park now.
