Resizing is the issue, I think
gunboards which i am a member of also has this same format we now have here but you can manage your own uploads right to site by browsing your own computer for the photo to upload. i hope i am not being a pain in the butt for asking but why doesnt this site do the same thing ? why should you have to upload to another site then do same to here? seems like its alot of trouble. can someone find out why we cannot do the same here?
You can browse your files for attachments on this site, just scroll up and click the "manage attachments" button below the message area and follow the instructions. The problem is that the file size of the pictures, as taken, are are WAY to big they need to be resized to the values shown in the list of formats for each picture. The picture files need to be made much smaller that's where resizing comes in. I had the "Power Toys" resizer on my old PC with XP operating system, the new one has the VISTA operating system, and the "Power Toys" resizer isn't compatable. After searching, for what seemed like an etirnity, the software help for Kodak Easyware that came with my camera I finally figured out how to resize. The information was always there, I just didn't know how to ask for it. Microsoft Office also has a picture manager that will let you resize, first, I didnt know what it was, and second, being extremely cheap, I didn't want to buy it after the free trial, the reasoning there is Bill Gates has enough money. Like most things connected with PC's I had the tools, just didn't know where they were, or how to ask for them! You may have what you need to resize already, this is based on the likely assumption that you are smarter than me, and won't take a week to find what you already have, if so, there is no reason to use "photo bucket"
