Sue, even though that is a pretty picture that I can resize temporarily, the max size for an image/picture here on the S@H forum is I think 1024x768.

Vic we can resize it. I have no problem with big pics. You have posted a few in the past.

Yeah and I got criticized about it at one time, that's why I mentioned what I mentioned. But whatever.

You did not get "criticised" Vic. It was simply pointed out to you that 1024x768 or 800x600 was better for everybody else. Try not to be so thin skinned.

No he is right, warnings have been given in the past over file size.
I was told it was because some folks still have dial ups.
Perhaps I can put my sig' back up?

Do it! People (like me) who don't like the flood of graphics can turn off the display of all signatures.

Large images that stretch the thread are extremely annoying. Especially when using a Mac mighty mouse which has a track pad surface instead of a roller for scrolling. This means that any sideways movement of my finger on the mouse as I scroll up or down slides the information part of the thread off the screen.

Streached threads like this one now really $#!^ me badly.

Most people seems to size their screens to about 122x800, so larger pictures should be accommodated.

Lately when I put up pix' I
always check it out on my server
before I put it up here.
(Remembering that lately for me is
anything in the last year.)

My screen is 1600x900, although when I post a pic, due to the way the browser is configured with the bookmarks taking up part of the left side of the screen, and with the website combined with the browser means that at most only a 1024 pixels wide pic can be totally visible on screen without extending off the screen on the right, so I try and stay at 1024x768 as the maximum, but that's a personal preference, otherwise I have scroll around or shrink the pics scale to where I can see the whole pic all at once with a Firefox extension, namely: Image Zoom 0.6.3

I hereby swear and/or affirm that I will never, ever again post a humongous photo/picture to this cafe.

Lately, when I take a picture on my phone with the intention of posting it here, I email it to myself with the maximum offered size reduction, and that fits nicely here without necessitating sideways scrolling.

It's not so much the dial-up users, it's just that a lot of people are still using 4:3 aspect 17" CRT monitors, so I try to allow for them. I run a 19" flat screen monitor at 1440x900 but it is an older pre 2008 one at 16:10 aspect ratio. These days the most common aspect ratio people are running is 16:9 at 1366×768.

Reference picture sizes, I resize mine to 6"x4"x200dpi in my photo program, and upload them to photobucket, where I reset them to 800x600. That gives a not too large a file but a reasonable size picture on all monitors. Works for me at any rate!

Thank you.

I'm going to redo it and delete the text on the green
background. I don't know why I put it in there in the
first place. Seems silly now.
