Guys, I'm not looking to have a whinge at you that send pictures into ECN here. But most of us guys that are Moderators have an Upload area. If you do want pictures posted, that's cool, just send them to our email addresses. But, if you are going to send pictures, please tell us who sent the thing, what the picture is about, in the vein of something we can use as an opening statement and a title for your thread. Also as Bill will tell you, there is a maximum size of picture here. I hate having to saw pictures down to size before posting them!. But please, keep sending them in, it's nice to see your perspective on the world.
I'm one of the mods on dial-up so I'd rather not download 20MB worth of images, but I don't mind an odd large image or two.
For those using 800x600 resolution displays, limiting the image width to about 650 pixels will allow it to fit without having to scroll horizontally.
There are times when a larger image is really necessary to be able to see the detail fully. In such cases I will rescale the image down to 650 or so wide to include in the thread, and post a link to the larger version. That allows the overall picture to be seen easily without the forum software making the thread too wide, but still allows everyone to see the detailed version if they wish.

Yes Paul, That's what I meant!. Sorry if anyone got the idea that I was having a whinge about receiving pictures in general, but I'm on a Dial-Up service as well, although I'd rather not be, that's just life. I do remember Bill saying to me some time back that 550 pixels wide, was a good size. Just as a side note, what sort of Photo editing software are you guys using?. I've mucked around with a few of them free ones off the net, but I finally knuckled down and bought Photoshop last week. Quite good to use and it saves getting all them annoying Registration e-mails everyday!.
