To help people out who are struggling with getting images into their posts and update their Avatar etc. I am looking for people who feel they could explain what they do with their images to help write some instructions for others. In some posts people have provided some brief instructions that I would like to see elaborated on into useful articles that people can be directed to in the future.
If you click on the link to the left under Forum Extras,
Photos and Images
, you can see a list of mostly empty articles that I think need to be filled into help others get comfortable with dealing with images and photos. There are plenty more that could be written so if you have something to share not covered in the topics, just submit anyway. Pictures are always helpful so if you you can manage to take some screenshots to help your instructions then please include or provide them too.
You can either write your instructions directly into an Article, by following the
on the bottom left of the Home page and Photos and Images page.
Or you could just put it up in the this board and again someone will make it into an Article for others to reference.

Load up MSPaint and open a pic
To make your pictures smaller n BB friendly @ 800 pixels wide
jist watch this animation n save it off to your hardrive so U can practise while off line
a calculator will cum in handy
I find it best to take the best quality pix n use th@ pix as a master copy n any alterations save with a slightly different file name
I normally put an "a" @ the end of the name
eg: image000069.jpg = mastercopy
image000069a.jpg = altered 1st time
image000069b.jpg = altered 2nd time etc
Re: altering pic size
calculator cums in handy here
width = 2048
desired width = 800
800 divided by 2048 =0.390625 multiplied by 100 (=%) = 39.0625%
Therefor: the amount of reduced horizontal n vertical % = 39%
so a pic of 2048 pixels wide reduced to a vertical n Horizontal of 39% = a pic of 799 pixels wide
to get the size of photo when loaded into MSPaint click on IMAGE and then Clik ATTRIBUTES clik PIXELS
this will be the size of photo loaded into MSPaint
OF ALL THE THINGS EYE MISS ................. EYE MISS MY MIND THE MOST

If you have photobucket
you can set it to automaticly resize your images to a selected size, so every image you
upload (after the set up time) from your computer to photobucket will then be resized
automaticly so you can pop it onto the forum from P/Bucket.
I will try to explain it ( hopefully,without ballsing it up).
1/......Login to Photobucket.
2/......On the home page...click UPLOAD (Blue patch)
3/.........Page will have (drop & drag photos etc here.)....top R/H side of that section is a
small black wheel sort of thingo....click on this...
4/.........Upload options page will appear........
5/.........click 800 * 600.... then SAVE......that's it.
Now you can place your pics from camera to computer to Photobucket to forum.
MAKE SURE YOU TICK NO LARGER THAN 800***600
( don't use the recommended size as on the sample bizzo.)
SAMPLE BIZZO....... ON THIS ,,there is steps 1 & 2........stay with step 1...
IT can ,alternately , be done using step 2............CLEAR AS MUD ???????????????
I suppose Flickr ETC have something similar.
I came into this world with nothing & still have most of it..........
