No problem here uploading photos to a post in the FORUMS. However, if replying to a Private MESSAGE and attempting to include a photo, it says .JPG is not allowed. What is allowed?

Since Alan has redirected us back to this thread I'll reply to Marks last entry in the newer thread. Jpeg Compressor resizes and has other capability's also. It' also easier and faster to use than the other "free ones" I've seen.


There are lots of ways to make more money, you can't make more time.

If you can achieve a maximum pixel limit of 800 x 800 pixels and a maximum file size of 256 kb, it doesn't matter what image processor you use. I use free Irfanview because it is so quick and easy to achieve both with only a few mouse clicks.

JPEG compression is probably just about the same in any SW suite....it is kinda old technology.

I recommend choosing SW based on functionality and user interface. Speed is mostly an issue with inout and output...i.e. Moving the files around.

But, since speed was mentioned, Imagemagick will be hands-down the fastest. You can resize a whole folder full of of images with one simple command.

Question regarding posting multiple images to the classifieds in particular, but I think all forums share this question.

Is there any way to select more than one file at a time from your saved photos to put into a post? I seem to have to do them one at a time since the forum software won't allow me to select more than one at a time from my computer files. It's tedious when putting in, say 6 photos of an object

Thanks!

One at a time only.

PM attachments don't work (don't know why).

Please forgive my ignorance. Once in a while on a post I would like to add a picture from my computer's 'picture file' which I took with my camera, but they seem to be 760kb, and I tried sandwiching it between img's, and also clicking on 'select a file' I think. Either way says max. allowed is 256kb (I think).
I am not an expert with either cameras or computers. Any simple suggestions?
I've been reading this forum for some time, and finally joined this week. As opposed to other forums I've been on, this one never seems to have in-fighting or bullying or foul language. Very refreshing!

Welcome!

use any photo editor to resize (scale) the picture so the longest side is 800 pixels or less...something like 640 X 480 is ideal. save as a jpeg and you will be under the 256K file size limit.
If you an using Windows, I think the default photo editor is "Paint".

You can also use picresize:

Pixellany, thanks. I couldn't quite figure out paint, and the web site wanted to change my email settings or something, so I'll wait until I visit my son next time and try to get an idea of what to do.
I appreciate the advice, and look forward to trying it out. Dan

OK, you've got the hang of it. To get a better pic, crop the chassis by itself, and then you can enlarge it to 800 pixels per side. That way it'll fill the entire scan by itself.

Good idea. I might be able to do that on my computer-or on my camera before I put it on the computer. Thanks pixellany and fifties!

most basic photo editors will do simple cropping, resizing, and brightness and contrast tweaks. I encourage anyone with a digital camera to learn the basic editing operations.

Apologies if this is already explained here. I couldn't find it...

How do I rotate images so they display correctly in this forum? So apparently, modern phones and operating systems don't really rotate photos any more. The just write a rotation value in the jpeg metadata. The same modern phones and operating systems read this metadata and display the photograph in the correct orientation.

However, apparently AR does not read this metadata, so it displays them as is. Or, the browser doesn't read the metadata. I've noticed, for example, that if I display this forum on my phone, everything looks OKDOK. On my desktop (windows 10, latest chrome), it doesn't.

One way around this mess would be to actually rotate the photo and set the orientation to zero degrees. Then everything would display it correctly. Apparently on windows 10 you can (still) do this. Yes, open it in paint and then save it without doing anything to it.

Sigh.

You have to rotate them first; you can't do it within the forums. Try https://picresize.com or a stand alone photo processing program like Iphoto, Paint, or Photoshop.

BTW my exasperation is with inconsistent implementation of a standard, not AR.

Why don't you just learn to orient your phone correctly.
You've got four choices!
