Judging from the post I just read, you figured it out. But for future reference, in the event that others have issues, just look at the upper left side of the screen; you'll see a blue box that reads: New Thread

Punch it with the mouse and off you go.

Why is it that so many of the posted pics on this board are so super large? I'm on several other boards and never notice this problem on those sites. Is there a default setting that the mods can change to make it easier to see normal size pics here?

BTW, thanks for all you do mods!!!

People will take a picture in a large format, like 300 dpi, and then post it. They do not change it to 72dpi and the size to something like 8"x5", before posting.

It's not just convenience that drives people NOT to resize; there's a tangible benefit -- specifically the ability to zoom in on the picture and see actual details. Added detail is something that's often important when looking at firearm proof marks, reductive modifications, blemishes, and the like ... and you rarely get the required amount of detail with low DPI images of small sizes.

Why not take a closeup picture of the area in question or details. It uses a lot of memory and time to upload a large picture and also to look at the large formatted pictures. I generally just move on when a large one is starting to load.

I believe there is a tool that should be auto-adjusting the size of images. Can you link an example of this for me?

I, for one, like larger photos. Bigger is better, and all of that...

You seem to forget taking, naming, and uploading additional photos just because Jaems wants small ones .... consumes more time on the part of the provider of the photo because they must shoot more shots (and/or crop them), upload more photos to photobucket, name more photos them once on photobucket, and then link multiple photos into a single post. (Each of those things take time.)

Thus, most people elect to do fewer, larger photos instead of multiple smaller ones. When they do, everyone wins. How? It's less work for the person providing the image, people who want detail can have it, and people who don't like large photos can readily skip them.

Thus, I'm not sure where the complaint is... or why. If the complaint is that you want other people to do more work so that you can have pages that load more quickly or pages you don't have to skip, well, that's not even a reasonable complaint in my book ... and the reasonable/realistic solution to THAT complaint is for you to get a faster connection (or, if you can't, then aggregate and multiplex multiple small connections ... which anyone can do, even with dial-up, if they put their minds and dollars to it).
