How do I insert photo

Help,

I just asked for help in identifying my front brake rotors but it looks like my image did not upload and attach.

What is the process?

SSedan,

Thanks for the reply. I just tried to attach my photo but it will not allow it saying my one photo is too large a file!

I suggest starting a photo journal here ... ( it is a FREE service to members ) and once the journal is started and the photo is loaded ... it is easy to post the photo here from the journal.

Example ...

Go to my photo journal ( below )

http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/jour...ge=1&reverse=1

See the first photo ...
I have now posted it here ( below )

To keep the file size of your photos small, I offer the following two suggestions.

Re-size the photo so that the WIDTH is no more than 800 pixels. The length does not matter.

Save the photo as a .jpg. This will yield the smallest file size. The resolution for posting on the internet does not need to be greater than 300 dpi and can be as low as 75 dpi.

Posting by uploading the image as an attachment will yield a small image that can then be left clicked on to view a larger image.

Another method would be to upload the photo to your photo album on this site. Then go to that photo and left click on it to view the largest version. Then right click on the photo and then click on the "Properties". A new window will appear and about half way down from the top will be a URL address for the photo. Highlight it and then click on the Ctrl and the letter C button at the same time. This will copy the highlighted URL to your computer.

Now go to where you wish to post the photo. Left click on the insert image icon (looks like a postcard with a mountain and a stamp on it). A new window will appear with the cursor blinking in a box. Press the Ctrl and the letter V button to paste the saved URL in that box. Click the OK button. The URL will appear in the new post with IMG and /IMG in square brackets at the beginning and the end of the URL. Submit your post. The image will appear full size in your post.

Examples of both procedures are shown below.

If you have a Windows Operating system, you should have a program to view images. In that program you should be able to reduce the size of images. Sometimes (Microsoft Paint program) this is a two step process where you can only reduce the width by a percentage and then the length by the same percentage.

There are many programs available for different operating systems.

I have a program called Paint Shop Pro (currently marketed by Corel) that is very easy and quick to use. It reduces images in pixels rather than percentage.

Most monitors will show a full width image without scrolling from side to side if the width is no greater than 800 pixels wide. I used to suggest making the images no more than 600 pixels wide as these will display full width even on monitors as small as 14". While large monitors (21" and larger) will display wider images depending on the resolution they have been set for, most folks do not have monitors of that size. Scrolling from side to side to view an image is very unsatisfactory in my opinion.
