I can't get windows 8 to link to the gallery when trying to post a picture. The pic is in my gallery in an album but when I try to post it windows only opens picture files on the PC. Doesn't seem to link to the file in the forum

Thanks Jeff I think it was just a windows 8 thing. I can post pictures from work but have trouble with windows.
I will try it again from home.

If you are using a work computer, it's probably an employer setting to stop uploads and downloads. Being windows 8 should have nothing to do with it. The browser you are using, perhaps.

You won't ever have to do it again, but you had the number of an album in the setup, not the number of your gallery.

I'm almost there, need to know how to save my autocad files so they will have correct extension.  I have tried .pdf and .pdfx and .dwg.  I don't find another choice in cad and not sure where to turn next.  Any idea the extensions that are appropriate.  I have a real picture I will add to post, or try.

Scott,

2 ways to do this.  One works if you are using Autodesk Autocad (or at least it used to).  At the command prompt below the model or paper space window type in JPGOUT (that should start a dialog window to let you save your drawing as a raster file).

Or, if you are using some other version of cad without the full Autodesk command set, here is how I have done it in the past.  I hit Shift-PrtScrn while I have Cad open as a full screen with my drawing displayed and then I open an app like MSPaint and hit "paste".  It brings over the Cad screenshot into MSPaint and then lets you save it as a Jpg, bmp, etc.

Like this ...



I "cropped" out the unnecessary stuff so only the drawing was saved.

I just wanted to add that with the new cameras and phones that
have a huge image size it take a lot of space to store. The picture
does not need to be so large to look good unless your zooming in
on it. Reducing the size will help by saving space. This sample
picture from my camera is only 39.1 kb.

If you are using an iPhone or iPad to take pictures that you plan to post on forestry forum, you must hold the device so that the volume buttons are on the bottom edge of said device while taking the picture. If you do not hold the your iPhone or iPad correctly and post directly from iPhone or iPad, your pictures will be oriented wrong on forestry forum and not even Jeff can fix it.

If the orientation of a photo taken with one of Apple's iDevices is corrected, it will then be wrong when viewed on an iPhone or iPad. So please, if you are like me and choose to use iPhones and iPads, please hold device so volume buttons are down when taking pictures. And please don't even think of holding iPhone in portrait orientation when taking pictures, it will never work.

Question about photo sizes.  I took a screen shot on my Mac.  The original size is 1390 x 768 and is 311 kb large.  It's very easy to read on my 22" monitor.

After I uploaded it, it became 639 x 367, and the compression is so bad, it's now 42 kb, it's hard to read the text. 



When I hover over the image, it appears clickable, but clicking on it does not do anything.  What would be ideal would be that if I clicked on it, I was taken the full size image I uploaded.  On a small screen (than my 22" monitor), I don't know how people could really even see it. 

I can understand the desire (or need) to compress images on upload, but in this case, it's doing more harm to a "harmless" photo than benefiting anyone.   

Is the idea that keeping a photo under 640 x 480 (a 1990's concept) is better for the common good?   I feel like I'm in photo jail.   There have been other images on this site I would have liked to see more clearly, but it's impossible due to the compression and scaling.

Even though the snide comments are unappreciated, I'll try to answer your problem.  Cut the image in two. Make two images and your text will be clear. And as for the comments, since you obviously have no understanding why we do things the way we do, I'll let them pass. This time.

I came to this thread to learn why you do the things you do, and since it wasn't stated, I asked my questions. 

Apologies for being snide.  It wasn't against any person, but you took offense personally, and apparently put me on notice.   

Thank you for offering the workaround.

Still don't know why you do the things you do.  It is a funds issue?  Is more server space needed?  Bandwidth?

It's been over 3 years since smartphones overtook desktop computers for accessing the Web. What's the biggest screen you can stick in your pocket?

I find other sites annoying sometimes when waiting and waiting and waiting for a bunch of photos of 14MB or more each to load on a page. Half the time they're lousy photos with more background than subject matter, any way.

Crop, scale, compress -- you end up with a photo that conveys what you intend and does so efficiently. Time is precious.

Find something to do that interests you.
