Big thumbs up on that....

Thanks F-bird'88. I'll give it a try. Building a 10 second car is easy compared to posting pics on the internet...LOL...well, for me anyway, not real computer savvy

50MB to 75 MB JPG file size and 640x480 resolution is plenty big.

The raw file size and picture resolution that your digital camera produces is way too big for internet posting.

IrfanView - Official Homepage - one of the most popular viewers worldwide

Snakebit68, I agree with F-Bird'88 on Irfanview. I use it constantly for photo editing. It's a free program and it works GREAT.

I have a couple of Irfanview instructional PDF files that I made up for the Yahoo Group "Sharpfans". I also have them posted at Keepandshare.com, you can view and download from there, or I can email them to anybody who would like to have them.

The first file, Irfanview - Getting Started, shows how to use Irfanview to resize your photos and several other options like adding text captions to your photos and cropping your photos.

The second file, Irfanview - Panoramas and Screenshots, shows how to make a panorama (merge multiple photos into 1 big photo) and how to do screenshots of your computer monitor using Irfanview.

Hope this will help get you "up to speed" on working with your photos. It's really pretty easy once you've done it a few times.

Ed

Thanks guys. I'm checking it out now. I just learned how to use the dang camera...now I have to learn how to fix the pics I took. Ahhhhh...can you even buy film anymore? LOL. I'll play around with this program a bit and see if I cant post a couple of pics of my truck on here. It's nothing spectacular, but its mine!

X2 - anyone can buy it, but not everyone can build it. And there is nothing to be embarrassed about by making a mistake or two and living and learning. I find tons of satisfaction in building stuff from low budget/stock parts and putting my all, which isn't much, into it. I'm glad to see others do as well.

some people cut to many corners and buy poor quality parts.
I think hot rodding and do it yourself is more effective when time and effort are spent on quality care of assembly.Those "free" horse power are hard to comeby but its your time.
Lots of quality and inexpensive factory parts can be reused to make a strong 307. the 307 is just a stroker 283,,, for horse power you have more potential than using a 305 because of the bore.
for a daily driver truck I might choose the 305 over the 307...
