Posting Pictures

Posting Picture

For future pictures,

Set your camera to a lower size and/or quality setting, the best size for posting in forums is around 600 pixels wide.

Resizing

Here is how to resize your current pictures,

Open the picture, when your cursor in over the picture the properties of the picture will be displayed, a picture taken in a high quality setting may be as large as 2048X1840.

You will need to resize this picture to 600 pixels wide. I assume you are running Windows XP. Right click on the picture, select "open with" then select "paint". Your picture will be displayed, select "image" from the top tool bar.

Select "stretch/skew"

Now calculate the picture size,

600 pixels (desired picture size) divided by 2048 (actual picture size) equals ,29 or 29%.

Under "stretch" change 100 to 29 in the horizntal and vertical settings. Then select "OK"

Now select "file" select "save as" if you want to keep the original 2048 X 1840 picture, change the name under the "file name"

If you don't want to save the original skip the above instructions and select "save" verify the file type is a "JPG"

Hosting

Now you will need to download the picture to a host.
You can use the GTOforum gallery as a host or use www.imageshack.us.

Either one will provide you with a "Browse" selection, find the picture on your computer. select download.

GTOforum Hosting

If you are using the gallery the pictures are moderated and will have to be approved by a moderator prior to being displayed. Send me a PM and I will approve them for you. The gallery pictures will give you a "My GTO Photos" link under your avatar.

Now you will need the pictures actual url, this is not the url listed on the address bar of I.E.

Right click on the picture, select properties there you will find the actual picture url. I use copy and paste to get the url to my post.

Imageshack Hosting.

After downloading to image shack, you will be provided with several urls. I select the direct url.

Displaying pictures,

You will need to tag the picture for it display in you post. the actual tag has no spaces.

Place "[ img]" before the url and "[ /img]" at the end of the url. If you want the picture centered use "[ center] and [ /center] before and after the IMG tags.

example (do not use spaces in the tags)
[ center][ img]http://www.imageshack,us/12345678.jpg[ /img][ /center]

If you have any questions PM me.

I only helped those on a one by one basis. I never would have done an elaborate post like that. I tend to go into TOO much detail sometimes.

Yea I know they aren't the best looking wheels but they work good enough to put the drag radials on. I just got them from someone on the other forum, I think he said they were off a 4x4 blazer/s10.

That is a good tool, and I recommend it. Here's another tip for those who aren't comfortable with downloading and installing a program.

Another trick for XP users running Outlook (I think this works with Outlook Express too) is to open the folder where your pictures are, highlight the ones you want to resize, right click on them, and choose "Send To" then "Email Recipient". When your email launches, it will ask if you want to resize the images, and you can choose the size you want.

After the email launches, just select all the picture attachments, right-click and choose "copy". Then just create a NEW folder, right click in the white space in the folder, and choose paste. Tada! There's your pictures, all resized. Then, just close the email and choose "no" when it asks if you want to change a draft copy.
