Default How to make a proper thread?

Hi all. Suppose I want to make a tread as follows:

Text (Comments)

Image or photo

More text

Another photo /image

to explain them. How can I do it? How to manage the final size of photos? I saw some that are very big (about 1.5 screens wide, at 1024 * 768) and others just visible?

Thanks in advance.

R U talking about resolution ?
It goes together with band usage !
So the more resolution an image has , the more it 'weights'
and it takes longer to make it appear on the monitor
(proportional to internet speed ).

Of course you can resize it
mmmhhh let me take my digital camera :

Menu > image mode
12 MB - 4000 x 3000 pixels
8M - 3264 x 24448
5MB - 2952 x 1944
3 MB - 2048 x 1536
PC - 1024 X 768
VGA -640 X 480

With the last ones you see the evolution, from VGA to PC .
So we must consider the size of a pixel on the monitor / screen ( pitch )
But let's return to re-size .
Any basic graphic application should be able to determine the size of
a document . Also which size it should be printed .
I like Photoshop because under image > image size IT's so easy !

No, the trouble isn't the time the image spent to appears in the screen, I'm talking about the size that it appears in the screen, some are very small and other too big that you need scroll the screen to see it completely.

Salutti!

Because the poster doesn't care of bandwidth usage .
Also if I've got an old monitor which has a resolution of , say , 1024 X 768
I should scroll horizontally and vertically to see it completely,
so it's a matter of netiquette

OK, I agree. But my query points to how to set the image size, so it doesn't happen, say, appear in a reasonable size.

I prefer medium sized images (500x750 or 400x600) that can be enlarged by clicking on them. I don't know if the forum supports that, though.

I tend to use attachments as they show enough detail in the thumbnail to attract interest but don't distract from the main point of the thread.

I THINK what Osvaldo is asking is this: If I find an image somewhere that I want to use, and it is 1500x1500, if I just link to it, it will be larger than the screen, requiring anyone to scroll back and forth to see it. How then would one resize it to maybe 400x400 for the screen?

Save it on your PC and resize it with MS Paint (assuming you're using Windows). Then attach it to your post.

Yes, I did it but most of the times the result once posted is really bad. And what about mixing text between images?
