Attachment size for image uploads. Please read.
« on: July 19, 2016, 06:48:37 PM »

Everyone, for some reason (i have no clue why) the image upload size got changed.
Please limit your images to 800x600 in size. i have changed the KB per image size back to 150KB for each image.
this means the photo has to be resized before you can upload it, opening the huge 1300x3200 megapixel images is taking too long.

Yes, i understand we have unlimited bandwidth here, that isnt the issue. its taking forever to see images on mobile devices.
Resizing to 800x600 or 600x800 is perfect for all devices.
This 600x800 and 800x600 fits here great, if you wish to see a humungous image, just klick the image name under each image and open the images in your imaging programs on your PC and zoom in and out.

For example, this ring image below is resized to 800x600 in my image resizer. Its very easy to see details.
Thanks everyone.
Phish.

Please read through this other topic for resizing help.

http://lapidaryforum.net/group/index.php?topic=17.0

If we dont do this the forum will slow down and annoy us all very very soon.

Does this effect the sizes imported from Photobucket?

Thanks for standardizing the image size. Have seen many posts where it was impossible to see the entire subject of a photo due to the huge images.

Sometimes it was impossible to identify the elephant by scrolling around in a huge photo. This will be better.

No, it does not limit photobucket image links or any other image hosting links.
Just the uploads directly to the site here, i have the settings to automatically resize the shown images after links and uploads, but if we can all make the images a little smaller the photos will all load faster for all.

you will also notice i have the forum outlining perimeter to adjust automatically to the size of your screens, if its wide the forum is wide if its narrow the forum is also. Hence no images on the left or right columns, i despise having crap on the edges, it ruins a forums homely homey feel (fixed it for ya, Phish! - R).

I am just trying to make things run easy here is all.

Trying to post three 800X600's and getting denied. Is this intentional? I understand that we don't want to get swamped with multi-Meg images but it's still nice to see a few views of a piece and get to analyze details. Can we get a little more slack?  :occasion14:

Update - getting denied with one image that's smaller than 800X600... ?

Resized down to 400 X 650 and the images are still 260K. 160K is really too small to show good detail IMO. Remember that images with fine detail don't compress nearly as much as snapshots with large areas of uniform color (blue skies, etc.)

Thanks!

You need to adjust resolution to get it sized smaller, not just overall size.  Try Irfanview, ACDsee, any photo editor.  I use ACDsee's optimizer and it allows me to adjust both image size and file size without losing any detail.

WINDOWS 10:                                   This will reduce your pic. to about 160, if not play with the 750 horizontal number
               1) go to "this PC"
               2) click on "pictures"
               3) double click on file containing the pic you want
               4) click "edit"
               5) click "on the pic you want"
               6) click "Resize"
               7) click " Pixels"
               8) Change Horizontal number to "750"
               9) click "OK"
              10) Close
              11) Click "Save"

Thanks to both for the help. I'm very versed in Photoshop and understand image file size and compression. I still feel 160K is too small to show good detail (moss, plumes, etc.). I regularly use 1000k as the minimum long dimension on FB and eBay. It allows you to zoom in and appreciate the finer details of intricate structures in the stone. Pics are still well under 1 meg (300K - 600K). If it's little pics from now on, so be it. Just think the pendulum might have swung a bit too far. My 2 cents.

Cheers!

FYI, I tried posting 2 pics, one 35K and one 75K, both under the maximum 160. They were refused.

I PM'd Randy to let him know we were having a problem.  He hasn't responded yet, so he may be off somewhere.  We'll get it fixed.  I don't know that much about the settings for the forum, so I don't want to mess it all up.   :icon_scratch:
