With the new NLC season now upon us and observations starting to come in I would like to draw to peoples attention some image posting guidelines which we would like forum members to observe when posting up images.
It would be great in the ideal world to be able to post up huge high res images, unfortunately size is money on the internet and this forum is governed by the same constraints.
Please can forum members ensure that images posted are no more than 800x800 pixels and that image size does not exceed 150kb.
Most image hosting sights, eg tinypic etc, have a 'resize' facility as you upload your images that does this automatically, all you have to do is tick the appropriate box. Alternatively the software that comes with your digital camera will allow you to do this.
I hope you can all appreciate the reasoning behind this decision - not everybody has broadband, alot of people are accessing the site on mobile devices, oversized images are difficult to view in the context of a thread, and, as said before the cost implications.
Thanks for your understanding with this and we will try to be tolerant of this as people get used to it within reason, but the last thing we want to do is to have to delete your fabulous pickies!
