Actually, the maximum pixel size is 800 horizontal and vertical.

Dave
I know width is 800 horizontal because of sideways scrolling on some peoples small screens, but vertical isn't affected.

Is this "one index picture" a problem?

The 800 x 800 pixel limit applies when using the Upload Attachment utility because the forum software doesn't allow anything larger. 800 pixels is the recommended maximum width when using a 3rd party hosting service (as you have) for the reason that you mentioned. Image width and height are not limited by the software.

I thought the attachment limit was on file size.....256Kbytes

It is apparently on both and they are mutually exclusive.

800x800 and 256kbytes are more or less compatible. It depends on the entropy** of the image and the type of compression being used.

**fancy word for the amount of information.

To say it another way...when you are using the Attach File utility, the software recognizes image files that are 800 or less pixels horizontal, 800 or less pixels vertical, and 256 kb or less file size. If these conditions are met, the image will be displayed in the posted message.

That was my understanding as well. Believe me, if any one of those three measurements are greater, you get red letters in the little box! (And no attachment)

That is indeed a handy site. FWIW, resizing using an image...and other manipulation...is MUCH faster using just about any photo editor on your local computer. I can see myself using an online service when i'm on a tablet or smartphone.

I just discovered that my iPad offers to resize photos when I send them by e-mail. I wonder if that means I can do it when posting to ARF?

Can you save the resized photo instead of sending it by email? Is the result 256 kb or less?

On my iPad 3 I can't save direct, but could email it to myself, resizing it in the process.

The resizing options are pulled up by touching the line giving the photo name or info in the header.

Once I received the downsized pic I could then long-hold on it and save it. Once saved, one could then upload it to ARF or wherever.

Not very direct, but can be done without a PC as long as you have email access, which you'd likely have anyway if you're trying to upload something to ARF.

My resizing process of choice when forced to use my iPhone (rather than my Canon that allows setting the resolution desired) is to pull the photo into MS Paint, resize to 800x600, and save.

I have not found a way to do that. When sending a photo by mail, it displays the file size for several different resizing options. If I ever need to, I'll simply send email to myself to get the downsized file.

I did look for the resizing option to appear when composing a post / attaching a file. No such luck.

Even though I'm addicted to this iPad, I use a desktop for the "real work".

How do I send a printed copy of a page off of Riders from my scanner?

Thank you, Jim.

You wouldn't send a print...send the file.

From a scanner, save as a JPEG, and then open with a photo editor to scale, crop, etc.-- to get under the max. file size.

But Rider's we can get directly from nostalgiaair........and to get better scans usually doesn't fit in 256 kbytes. Thus, better to email those directly.

For resizing photos, I use a program called Paint, available on the Web; it works well.

For a schematic, I would suggest that the best way is to put it on a free file hosting site (I use Tinypic), and then post the link here. That way it can be clicked on, and viewed by everyone at full size.

I have a 14 megapixel camera purchased new about 5 years ago. I have it set to take pics at a 3:2 ratio, which is 12 megapixels b/c if or when I develop, I exclusively do a 4x6 print.

my pictures range from 4 to 6 megs and just a bit above 5 megs is the most common file size.

when I want to post a pic on the forum so i don't get the size error message and so it DOES NOT make one scroll left to right just to see it, here is my process:

1. put the picture on computer's desktop

2. open the pic in windows XP or 7 paint

3. click resize

4. put in 10 for the horizontal and 10 for the vertical with the "by percentage" button lit

5. file, save

I would guess these numbers will be different for different cameras with different settings and capabilities.

this process works every time for me with no "file size" errors or causing one to have to scroll left to right to view it, as seen below:
