    My favoritest method: View the pictures on the 'windows picture viewer' and take a screen shot. I then paste that into Paint & crop it to show just the picture and save it over the old file

    MAJOR BUMP!!

    PLEASE, folks -- it's baby season and there were several Emergency Help Needed threads over the past week that had HUMUNGOUS pix attached. We need to get to these threads within seconds in order to help a possibly life-threatening situation, but we can't if it takes 10 minutes to load on our computers! 640 is the best setting; 800 is ok. Nothing larger, please.

    Unfortunately, I can't even read text while the pix are loading because the screen jumps all over the place.

    If you don't know how to re-size, technically savvy members can help you. Stosh2010, for example, is VERY helpful with this stuff!

    Excellent BUMP.
    You can also load your pictures in photo sites something like smug mug, photobucket, etc. Then you post a link, and the picture comes right up on the screen, so the people reading your thread can see, no need to click on the link.
    Most of these sites, start off with a free trial, unless you want to upgrade immediately, and even then the price is extremely reasonable.

    Skul made a good point. The problem isn't the physical size of the picture, it's the size of the file. Before I read this thread, I posted a 2.9M photograph that is probably guilty. So perhaps an official ruling is in order. What file size should we aim for?

    Give the wide range of technical expertise (or lack thereof ) on this board, we try not to be too zealous about a specific image size. What was huge just a few years ago - in terms of dimensions and file size- is now commonplace. Posting straight from camera or phone can mean anything from 1 Mb on upwards, and that's what can impact the load time for a post/thread, especially if the photos are uploaded directly here, instead of linking from another site such as Photobucket.

    I'd suggest that a maximum size of 500-800 Kbs is probably going to get the idea across, whether by reducing the dimensions or by taking down the quality of the jpg.
