    Default loading photos to my posts.

    I've had no such problems to date but this site now refuses to download photos that are bigger than 100KB.

    I've checked back. It's handled them easily before up to about 140KB

    Now anything over 100 gives me a red exclamation mark.

    And I'm on the lowest size setting on my camera

    As stated. The site is reducing its data volume. Less to store, and less to serve.

    It isn't hard to find software for whatever system you use to decrease jpeg "quality", ie increase compression, with accompanying loss, which is sometimes a problem.

    The way jpeg works handling transitions suggests that if you are desperate to get something still readable at that size, consider putting the image through a very mild gaussian filter before compressing. It usually isn't needed.

    Or find somewhere else to store them, and link - although that causes major annoyance if you decide to delete them later.

    Default Another glitch



    Thanks!

    FastStone worked fine after using Good Ole YouTube for a tutorial

    BUT now the photos have no image on the thumbnails just a white question mark.

    When I click on it I get the error message " This asset is not being used by any content that you have access to".

    I'm confused now.
    Either I misunderstood your original problem, or you've misunderstood something.

    Could you explain, step by step, what you're trying to do and how you're doing it. Something doesn't make sense.

    and fantastic for getting decent images from printed pages without the hassles of de-screening....

    Increasing JPG compression from the usual 80-90% to around 50% works wonders for image size, PNG works better for textual materials - when Murphy isn't looking over your shoulder...

    cheers,
    Bob
