Some TCCers don't have huge monitors, are on slow Internet connections and cannot manage large images posted into threads.

Large images are nice! But, they can slow down the TCC experience for a lot of people. Because of this, and because we want everyone to enjoy that experience, I'm asking people to be more mindful of their image sizes.

The posting area is roughly 415 pixels wide, which is plenty for an image.

But how do you resize an image?

There are simple techniques! First, if you have a photo editing program on your computer, you can do it that way. If you use Photobucket, you can edit individual images and choose to resize them by a certain percentage. If you're linking from somewhere else, use http://imageshack.us. Once it's uploaded, Imageshack gives you the links for posting the image.

Thanks for your time!

I admit, I'm a member who has been guilty of this recently in my show and tell PC thread.

But, after getting frustrated with having some huge images and some small ones, I'm in the process of re-sizing right now.

To be fair - those using low speed connections could use the low-fi version of the site.

As far as the over-sized images getting into threads tho - agreed, members should be more careful with those widths, I've even found some that stretch the widescreen...

Wouldn't it be a good one to pin? I was surprised that it already wasn't pinned.

For those who use Photobucket to host their images:

Recently Photobucket has greatly expanded the number of resizing and photo editing options available! Instead of being forced to use a preset size, you can now adjust the height and width of pictures as you choose.

I think they're offering MORE options now though, other than preset sizes. As far as I know there were only a few choices before.

The thing I dislike is when people have a signature image that is so wide it stretches the screen.

That relates to this topic:

Size of signatures topic

I think that most members are beginning to get better about the signature issue.

It goes to an entirely different screen to edit now. You can manually choose the dimensions by a slider. However, it takes a little longer to do on a slower computer.

Just a thought...

I just came across a feautre where you can set your setting to not display images. Why don't people on slow internet connections change their settings so they can not see images?

While that is an option, I don't think people with slow connections should be forced to have less of the TCC experience just because someone, or some people, are unwilling to compromise.

In this hobby, we share a lot of scans and photographs. Half the fun is looking at those images. Imagine not being able to, only because people don't play nice.
