    IrfanView question.

    H-E-L-P!!!!!!! I am trying to build a coherent trip report but the photos are not doing well. I've used the InfraView software to some success but they just look bad and small. I am going with 72 dpi, 250 across in order to get under the limit and then the attachment manager only lets me put in one per reply. The origianls are 1 MB in size.

    I see other folks have good luck and they post more than one image per reply and they are fairly large. So, what am I doing incorrectly?

    Can anyone point me in the right direction for correcting the problem.

    Thanks,
    Bullfrog

    One quick thing you could do is quote somebodies post who has things set up how you like it, and see what they did. Many use a free photo service for linking images like photobucket or smugmug.

    Hosted images are the way to go.

    Try flickr. It's free and Burnszilla swears by them.

    Me? I'm a smugmug guy.

    the forum will only let you attach one photo per post. to embed multiples, as others have stated, they need to be up on the internet somewhere else already.

    smugmug and flickr are the most popular sites.

    Thanks, folks! I'll try one of them for the next attempt. I appreciate the advice. Like to try it now but I've been told to mow the lawn.
