A very recent thread (wish I could find it) had an image that was so wide the diyAudio part of the page occupied around 25% of the left of the screen.

The "quote" thread options etc were in the room next door so wide was the thread as posted and, as I was comfy I just couldn't be bothered to get up to go and click quote and reply so I just exited the thread.

Anyone with Vista and W7 (XP too ???) has the program "Paint" included and can resize pictures in seconds as here. This took all of 20 seconds to do and was from a 3Mb high res photo. You don't need any 3rd party software. You can sharpen images in "Photo Gallery" too if needed.

I too think images posted on external sites should be discouraged.

We have lost all of EVA's pics in the capacitor testing thread.
We have lost the pics in the KSA80 to 160 conversion thread.
The list of lost pics is enormous.
I can tell from the proportion of broken links to unattached documents that the original poster rarely follows up and corrects all the links when they change to another remote server.

Lightroom rules, i have creative suite too, but for cataloguing and this type of editing Lightroom is superior. however the latest photoshop 12 incorporates quite a lot of the cataloguing features i like in Lightroom. for most of this type of compression i just use actions and it takes me no time at all

You just have to be a "positive" troll !!

Whenever you see a photobucket picture, you have to post a reply with this thread details attached.

(although my own preference would be some sort of block by admin on photobucket piccies.)

That's not a bad idea actually...

maybe a have a sticky or similar detailing how to add pictures (as I find many don't seem to know) and then any such threads can be directed there.

What would the moderators think to anything like this

If you see a thread with giant images, please report it. Click the image to open in full size. I fix all that I come across, but I don't see them all. Thanks.

And just as an example of how good Photoshop is at reducing file size for the web, here is Mooly's nice butterfly on the nettles at 1/2 the file size.

This thread is a "sticky" already.
