Over-sized Picture Additions.....Fix em'!
« on: January 06, 2017, 09:47:36 AM »
Not sure about you guys but having to scroll across a screen to view cool picture just pisses me off....and I use a big computer monitor. Using a handheld device would be even worse with some of the pictures added here. The worst is when someone adds multiple pictures that are huge....going to the bottom of the screen to scroll across for individual shots over and over is something I no longer do. Too bad really.

I am not computer savvy at all and yet have somehow been able to figure out how to resize pictures to fit the screen.

If you want your posts to get viewed it behooves you to figure out how to resize shots. Me myself...I just use the resize option at tinypic for "15 inch screen 800 by 600"....easy Louisee. This works for my screens and I am hoping it does for others viewing my posts. Handle held devices may still suck...I am not sure as I don't have one.

This:



As opposed to this:



"Why do you have so many bbq's?"....."I just like lookin' at em' sometimes....and I have enough purses and shoes"

Right. I've been posting using the app and all the images are scaled to fit in the forum.  I just hit the web to look at my last pic posted using the app. I used the max size option and I don't have to scroll on the computer monitor. I do have a 24" monitor at work though.

I'll use the medium option from now on. It's just easier to use the app rather than the full site.

I noticed what MrHoss was talking about when selecting the "best" option when uploading from the app, like Mike I now pick the medium and everything thing works out fine
