..but not many people post them. Everyone asks questions, discribes their problems or projects but they don't post pictures. Is it hard? Just wondering.<P>------------------<BR>

That radio looks excellent but there is a special area for just posting photos.<BR>Photos with posts are ok occasionally,but if most postings included photos it would slow down things a lot for those with dial up connections and it would take forever to read all the postings in one Forum dept.if we had to wait for the downloading of a fairly large photo with each one.I assume this is why we do have the separate photo section here.<BR>Malcolm<P>------------------<BR>

Sorry Malcolm, but I don’t agree. Posting Photos is a much better way to explain something. I have AOL w/ dial up, and I see no difference what so ever in loading.<BR>The reason for the separate Photo section is that not all posters have a storage area for the JPG’s.<BR>I have AOL, and there lots of room for storage, from a web site to just one JPG. What I do is take the JPG, cut it back in size, not DPI’s and post it on the AOL storage and take a look at it, if it’s to big I cut it back some more and reload it again to AOL<BR>I think yours Tubbytwo, could be smaller <IMG SRC="http://antiqueradios.com/forums/biggrin.gif"><BR><P>------------------<BR>Rick Dippolito<BR>THE PHILCO RESTORER at<BR> <A HREF="http://hometown.aol.com/philcorestorer/myhomepage/index.html" TARGET=_blank>http://hometown.aol.com/philcorestorer/myhomepage/index.html</A>

Thanks Bob, I was born in`46. Anyway, my point wasn't to show off a radio, it was only a question as why nobody posts pictures. I agree 640x480 was a bit large. I frequent woodnet forum and that is full of people posting their projects and asking for suggestions. Dial-up. What's that?<P>------------------<BR>

Hey Tubbytwo, gotta tell ya that your radio pic was more fun to see than most posts. As a radio restorer, I have done similar with over 200 radios and always wished I had before and after photos. So glad this radio has a new life to give. Although kinda boxy, the dial is really quite cool. You did a great job. God, I love old radios restored. Regards, Ken<BR>PS Born in 1949, alas the email address<P>------------------<BR>

I too would like to post more pics and see others do the same. In fact, I'm in the process of setting a hidden folder on my web server, so that I can more easily attach photos to posts here. <P>I don't think there would be much of a problem with download speed, but maybe there would be an issue with server space? <P>Perhaps Alan or one of the moderators would chime in on this. Is there any reason not to include more photos with our posts?<P>P.S. Terrific restoration job!<P>------------------

I've posted photos in the forum before but, then, as I became more familiar with how the forum works, I began posting just the links to the pictures assuming that not everyone has wideband internet service and might get mad at me as my pictures might take forever to download. This way, readers can view the photos if they choose to do so.<P>Dave<P>------------------<BR>

I too agree, a picture really helps to make a point. <P>However, I have had problems with syntax. Please give a brief tutorial on the proper method for this. Maybe I can get it right next time.<P>Thanks,<P>Rich<P>------------------<BR>
