Adding scans or pics on the Forum

Post by dragsamou » Sat Nov 09, 2013 8:33 am

Hi Members

I will kindly ask that you resize your scans or pics to less than 1000 Width before putting them on the forum, as I can't spend my time doing that for all the ones that distort a topic. Also if you add pics or scans add it straight on the forum, so that no one have to join any FB group, download an application in order to view them, etc...Same for Ebay links, as the pics won't be available after a month and the forum is already crowded with dead links or pics. Thanks for your understanding.

What do you mean by "distort a topic"? Is that when you have to scroll to the right to read all the text?

Any recommendations for what size is OK?

Hi Tav

Yes, when you have to scroll all the way to the right to read the text and look at the pics. I think that up to 1 MB is ok, I need to verify.

I'm not sure, but it might be different for each person, depending on the size of their computer screen. I know I run into that issue more frequently when viewing Librarities on my phone (small screen) than I do on my regular computer (average screen).

I've looked at this on a few different machines now...

On my work computer,
1341 x 1219 is way too big as I can barely see any of the right card without scrolling.
1000 x 908 is a little too big as I need to scroll to see the right border of the right card.
900 x 817 looks great

On my phone,
1341 x 1219 is a little too big as I need to scroll to see the right border of the right card.
1000 x 908 & 900 x 817 both look great.

On my wife's computer using big screen TV as monitor,
all pictures fit without scrolling, but the smaller ones are harder to see from the couch.

Hi Tav

So looks like 900 Width is the Max correct one to use :)

900 pixels seem to work well for me. Photo shop does this quite easily but I'm sure other programs do too.
