Getting a jump on things

That’s quite an off fall table set up there.  That might qualify in the red neck hall of fame. :biglaugh:

That's a lot of decoys you put out, think any deer will come?  :bigsmyl:

Pronghorn?

Yes, they group up this time of year.

S, apparently I don't need to resize my pictures.  Makes things simper. :)

Thanks,  Roy.  That's pretty much what I've done to post pictures but I thought I had to resize them myself before posting.

Yes on resizing first if they are really large

POSTING IMAGES
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There really is no limit on file size currently.

However if you have a huge image file and it takes forever to upload, you will get a error eventually.
Such as using wifi or other slow connections.

Also even though there are no restrictions on size they do take more space on this site.

Even though the forum will re-size the displayed image size to 640PX width.
It does not alter the uploaded file size.
It still will take longer to display on the huge images. And slow down .


So to answer your question.
Size will depend on your connection speed.
That is just the nature of the beast(Internet)


FYI,
You may want to install tapatalk on your phone also.
For all your posting .

technically, there is no maximum image size that's been set for trad gang's forum software.  be aware that really large camera and cellphone images will almost always time out because the traffic on our server is so severe almost 24x7 and bandwith for image/file uploads will always take a back seat to topics and postings.  really large images are great for making into hard copies but are almost useless for computers. if you have a huge image file and it takes forever to upload, you will eventually get an, such as using wifi or other slow connections. it still will take longer to display on the huge images .... and slow down.  this has nothing to do with the trad gang server - it has WAY more horsepower than we need.  it's about internet connections.

"smaller" images are guaranteed to upload fast - as long as there are no network issues in the route from your computer to the trad gang server .... it's the internet, and stuff sometimes just happens!

what is a "smaller" image?  2000 or less pixels in width x length.  the truth is, even those images are WAAAAY too large to be properly viewed on a typical computer screen, let alone a phone or tablet.  there is no need for that, it's a waste of everything.

so it will help to resize really large images.  for my personal use, i size to 1024 wide at the max, but most are 800 wide down to 640 wide at the minimum.

Thanks again,  Roy.  I'm going to continue to resize mine since it only takes a minute.   Another plus is it shows if it's sideways or upside down and is also quick and easy to fix.

Heading out to the ol' HD to get me some premium pine for my victim.  Then on to the bandsaw and belt sander.  Should be done by 8:00.

Take a kid hunting!

Another thought on photos.... I don't know how many of you guys have ever used google photos, but its a very simple way to take a lot of photos and have them automatically upload to google photos. once there you can easily edit the photos by cropping or adding a bit of light, or pop and just save them in photos, or create albums...... 

The very cool part about using google photos is that you can just post a link on a forum, or in an email and do not have to upload or down load photos at all, and that link doesn't have a large file size at all.

Example:    https://photos.app.goo.gl/QxWhnj4WmBABxsMV7

Another cool part is that once your phone uploads to google photos you can erase them on your phone and not bog you phone down with hundreds of pictures. 

BTW:   when you set up your google photo app. change the photo upload size to Large rather than original pixel settings, and set it up so it only uploads when hooked to wifi. This saves data on your phone if you only have so much allotted each month. But... If you have unlimited data ,you only need phone service to upload your photos. These new cameras have HUGE pixel counts on the original photos.  If you change them to a large size, the pixel count drops dramatically, and the uploads are quicker.  google photos allows unlimited storage in that large format, and the odds that google is going to pull a stunt like Photo bucket did and hold you ransom for your photos in the future is pretty small.... I lost hundreds of photos when photo bucket pulled that crap in my early bow building days....

Food for thought guys.    Kirk

Yup.... but you can change the settings on file size and storage, and... shut it off and only upload when its hooked to wifi too.

I still use imgur for embedding a lot of my website photos because they are set up better for html coding, but i can, and do use those same google photo links in my website coding too, which makes updating and adding photos easier.   Kirk

I know it's getting late for you Lower 48 folks, so a quick update.  I'm finishing up matches now and will start sending out PMs in the next hour or so.  You will all have them waiting in your inboxes in the morning for sure.  Sorry for the delay.
