    Is it possible to post a larger pic if you don't use smugmug? I only ask because it seems as though folks can post larger pics on here, and when I try the pics are only about 2x2. Does it have to do with the resolution that the pic was taken? Just curious is all. Thanks

    Yeah, it can have something to do with resolution. Think of a digital photograph as having density. If you're taking a reasonably high quality shot, you can have very high density, which means that the camera has generated lots of pixels to fill in detail on the photo. That number is the megapixel count you looked at when you bought your camera.

    Anyway, the best thing you can do to lower the size of the image is to resample it down to 72dpi. That's all you're going to see over the internet, so you might as well make the size of the image file smaller without harming the resolution the viewer sees. Also, if you cut the size to about 400 to 500 pixels wide, you'll still have a decently sized photo.

    That said, let me talk about how attached photos work with the database and how they can affect the costs the MOA bears to deal with them. I'm not trying to discourage attaching photos, as they really make things come alive here, but to explain so people know how the forum software works.

    When you attach a photo, it gets stored on our servers, so we pay for storage fees. When a user clicks on a thread to look at it, the server sends that image to the user. We pay for bandwidth usage as well.

    If a user has linked a smugmug or other image into the post, we don't have to pay to store the image, nor do we have to pay for the bandwidth. What happens is that on the user's desktop, the forum software shows the thread, but inserts the image directly from the image's hosting server.

    Does that help? Keep those photos coming, they really do make the whole place feel like real life some times.

    Dave thanks for the reply and it makes perfect sense too. It does appear that smugmug type format would be better for all based upon the variable costs.

    Thanks again,
    Andy

    You're close. You need the full path out to the picture, which should include the name of the .jpg file. Looks like you got the syntax right for the IMG tags, but need to work on the path name.

    Good test, but I think you need to do this a couple of more times with some "Ducati" pictures.
