Dave, yes, If I upload say an image that is resized to be 1600 on the largest side, it will upload to show as 800 in the thread, but click on it and its only about 1000 on the largest side.
But what happens when you click on the 1000 pixel image?

Those photos are taken with the camera's highest jpeg setting. They are 3.8MB images 4160 x 2340
untouched / unedited... known as SOOC (straight out of camera).

The only reason for doing this (in my opinion) is to remove (accurate) GPS attached data.
You can disable this feature in your camera's settings.

I've mentioned it before but evidently no one else has commented on it. I have used the same picture editor for many years for the forum and on over 2000 eBay sales and found it very simple with all of the controls on one screen. It is still down loadable from various sources. The "super" version is no longer available but the starter edition is.
Microsoft Image Starter Edition. It originates from 2006 but for my daily purposes it can't be beat. I have noticed that most of the picture problems people have here I have never had. I supposed most of you guys like to keep up to date.

I use Photoshop 7 but it is on the other computer in this room. But for quick and dirty crop etc., Windows Paint does well for ordinary photos. IrfanView 64 works well and is on this computer.

Technically, you don't need to edit at all!

Just upload directly!

Although, you may end up with sideways or upside down images depending on the EXIF data from your camera/tablet/phone.

I'm still puzzled how some uploads are nice and large such as this recent thread.
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=401622

Click on the image, you get a larger version, click again and its 3024 X 4032!!!!
If I tried uploading that size image, it will be reduced maximum of maybe 1000 on the longest side....

Maybe the forum allows newbies with low post counts to display large images?

:wink:

Some time ago, didn't Alan announce that the limit on the file size of attachments had been relaxed?

Yes, Mark, they have been relaxed and it works just fine.

I used to have to crop the pixel size on scans that I wanted to post, as my camera's default was 1200 x 1600. Since Alan fixed things though, I just post what I've got, and the forum S/W handles the size.

Not so however, if I copy a scan on the net, and then paste it here. If it's wider than the page size, one has to navigate across to see the entire picture. I therefore preview first, and if I see that, don't use it.

Steve, the large image of the Kadette console is 12.2 megapixles,
and... 2,772,181 bytes (2.6 megabytes)

You can compare the images with this metadata viewer.
http://exif.regex.info/exif.cgi


Turn off GPS in your smartphone if you are paranoid.
It will be attached to the exif. lol

Still unexplained is why some people are able to upload super large images (shown on the 2nd click) while others are not as large even though a super large is claimed to have been uploaded. Steve (azenithnut) - are you still having this problem?

Yes, I've yet to have an image that isn't brought down to 1000 pixels on the largest side.
