Robert - Being puter-illiterate need some help to speed up the learning curve on posting photos. Noticed when posting last night that I was limited to 4 photos per posting. Question is, I believe I've seen some with way more, is this done by repeative editing of the thread? Question two - my photos came thru super sized, what do I do to make them thread page compatiable. Thanks in advance. Ted ( Sorry if posted to wrong spot ).

I can't get more than four pictures inserted into a single post.
So - you'd have to make 2 or more posts in order to display all the images.

To avoid super-sized pictures, you want to save them in a lower-resolution. I do this with a free program call irfanview. It's an easy to use picture viewer and editor. It lets you easily resize pictures. My suggestion is to stick with pictures that are around 1024x768 pixels in size (or smaller). You can google irfanview and download it you are intereted.

You can download one of the many free "POWERTOYS" for Windows from the Microsoft site. One of them is called "Image Resizer". Once installed, all you have to do is right-click the image and in the list of options that pops up is new one called "resize picture". Just select that and you will get four size options to resize your picture; small, medium, large, and handheld. It will create a new image file with the original name plus the word small, medium, or large in the name. VERY simple to use.

Here's a link to the XP version if Image Resizer:

You can search Microsoft's site for other fun tools in the powertoys section. Here’s the XP site for PowerToys:

I usually post here with the small image size, and here's the result:

I use www.tinypic.com for the actual image posting, as outlined in the posting a picture thread.

Oh, that's my boat last winter in La Conner (Shelter Bay). It looks like Alaska though!!!!!
