Picture Posting tutorial...
Apologies to the owners of the cars featured the tutorial

Here goes!

First you'll need to go to this website Easy Thumbs software and download the FREE program. It's small and won't take up that much space on your hard drive.

Once you install the software you can 'tab' to a screen that looks like this:

Make sure that you change the default setting to 600, 600 or 800, 800 for bigger pictures, as in the circled areas. Also set your jpeg output quality to 80 or less...that normally keeps the file size manageable

You will then need to 'tab' to the 'preview output' page
and set up where you'd like to "store" the resized shown here. I normally save to the desktop for ease of finding them.

You can do one picture at a time, or a bunch. The program is really fast! (make..or make all)

You'll then need to sign up here: Photobucket

The initial screen looks like this:

The sign up page looks like this:

Once you sign up, you'll come to this page:

You can load one picture at a time, or as many as 19 pictures at once!(listed as submit multiple pictures)

Once the pictures are uploaded, all you have to do is 'right click' as shown in the photo below and select 'copy'. Then make your post on and wherever you want the picture...skip a line and then hit paste!

That's all there is to it...and that concludes the tutorial for now. PM me if you have any questions

You've proven yourself again. I can't imagine the effort you put into that presentation. Hats off to you. I have also found the easythumbnails software to be of help. Althought I'm still having trouble navigating everything to get a good picture to post.
Let's try one.

Verne...Good deal! You just need to make the picture 600x600 or 800x800. That will make the picture viewable without scrolling off the edge of the screen!

Check out the picture below to see what I mean. Other than that, I think that you've got it!

600 pixels wide is as wide as you want the pictures, or else it screws up the forum page and folks will have to scroll...everything else looks good though!

Sorry I screwed up the thread with my picture. You can delete it if you want to.
I haven't signed up with photobucket, nor do I have my own web address at all.
A friend has placed a bunch of my photos on his site that I can copy as attachments here,
but I don't have editting access to create the thumbnail on his site.
Guess I better get busy with Photobucket. Thanks again Bruce.

Hey, no problem Verne...glad to see you're getting the hang of it, and a big THANK YOU again to Bruce for going above and beyond yet again...

OK, I did the Photobucket thing. Let's see if I got this right.. I scanned it, then created the thumbnail, then uploaded it into my Photobucket account.
Was that the right way Bruce?
