Why not post them yourself rather than soliciting member information?

If he can send the pictures, he can post them for you if you just give him your user name and password.

As a side note, be careful about how much personal information you put on the internet.

Based on this one post, plus your location information available to anyone, I have your full name, city, state, and zip code. Plus your email.

From your email address I know who you get your internet from, and probably phone as well. Using that information I can get at least the area code and first 3 digits of your phone number. Someone much smarter than me could get a lot more than that .

You may reconsider how much info you put out there . Be safe!

Here's the thing guys.....Your pictures must be under a certain size before websites will accept them for upload. Depending on what operating system you are using (Windows XP, Windows 7 etc), you can download their image resizer.

http://imageresizer.codeplex.com/

It works real well. What I do is, when I put pics from my camera to my computer, I resize them to medium size. That seems to be the perfect size for these forums.

Once you have your pics on your computer at the right size, use the "Manage Attachments" button below where you are typing your post.....find the pic and submit.....Its not hard with a bit of practice.

Hope this helps a bit

You have a maximum size of 300 KB for each picture on this website. You need to use the software from your camera to re-size your pictures or use the software from Picasa (from Google), or like Poncho said, the software that comes with your Windows operating system. I use the software that came with my Canon camera to re-size my pictures which works perfectly. If you re-size them to 800 by 600 pixels they turn out great. You can also download pictures to an online service like Photobucket, and then post your pictures from there.

bad desicision on my part

even though i am doing great i still have some memory problems after having a heart attack, followed over a few weeks later by three strokes. at one time i could have posted the pictures myself, but not now. my son in law raises registered mountain kur dogs and posts pictures weekly but he tried to post for me on another corvette forum i am on and was not sucessfull. if i am not mistaken i listed my email address on the registration to the forum and checked off to agree for other forum members to email me. the heart attack and strokes were 2 1/2 years ago, i was in a wheelchair until one year ago this week, and then graduated to a walker, and to a walking stick in may of this year when i started preparing my 2003 ss silverado truck to run thr maxton mile in sept. in maxton, n.c. i ran a best of 124.5 mph and achieved the number one item on my bucket list, but i decided to go back to the oct. meet where i set a new C/PP landspeed record at 127.999 mph. the car hobby has been a driving force in my recovery, anyway i made a big mistake so i will keep one of my 44 magnums loaded and turn captain loose and not keep many funds in my checking account. happy holidays, garrell
