Can't post a picture here(4 posts)

Can't post a picture heresiclmn
Jan 6, 2004 6:49 PM
I have been trying for a long time to post a picture with no results. I know that my pictures are too big but I can't compress them. When I hit send page by e-mail and it says make pictures smaller it works but where are the pictures being sent? I have hotmail. How do I get the picture from hotmail to your forum? Can someone give me a direction?

When you choose post, you'll see this below the blank text box:

Post an Image URL:
-or- click here to upload an image from your hard drive

Where it says "click here", click it. You'll fire a photo upload dialog box. Click the browse button and locate the image file on your hard drive and select it with a double click. Be sure to follow this advice:

The file size is limited to max. 200K
The file type must be .jpg or .jpeg
Filename must contain no spaces.

or it won't work. If your file is larger than 200K then you need to bring it into some kind of photo edit software and adjust it's size by changing it's quality and/or compression. Also, change it's diminsions to be 600 pixels wide. You likely got some kind of software with your camera.

Good Luck

Thank you it worked. The trick was to change the setting on the camera and now I know how to post pictures.
