    Default Need help in real time

    I posted photos once before. I cannot not see or remember how to post new photos of the R19. Could some one message me asap. Greatly appreciated Shane. It is now 4 05 local West Australia time. The date is 17/01/18. Hope to post soon. PS I have tried the manage accounts button. It pulled up the previous photos I posted. I couldn't retrieve the file on my computer photo programme.

    When in "compose mode" ie creating a new post: click on the icon marked with red arrow.

    You will prompted for the location of the image, either hosted or your local pc.

    Once you select your pc, navigate to image location and select the image.

    Or alternatively, if you originally posted them through here; try using the “go advanced” button at the bottom in compose mode, then the manage attachments. If they are there already, you can re-attach them by selecting and dragging and dropping.

    So, you are indeed spoilt for options.

    Except you have a 100kb limit on the size of the images.
    Yes, there have to be limits and space is limited but 100kg is way too small.

    Irfanview is your answer to the file size restrictions. Image/ resize from the top bar.

    It's a free download. Download IrfanView

    However if the member is experiencing difficulties posting images, resizing may present insurmountable difficulties.

    I agree it is too hard to get down to 100 kb. Then I keep forgetting the process.

    AF takes them as submitted. Shrinkage of a JPEG is trivial, and a range of graphic applications from Gimp and Photoshop downwards can do it on all systems.

    I use imagemagick (works with all OSs), with a convert command inserted in my file manager menu. If the image came from a camera, strip off the superfluous EXIF stuff.

    Shrinkage isn't so trivial to everyone.

    Personally I use irfanview in Windoze, especially for my batch work, imagemagick from the commandline or to build web based tools. But Irfanview can be difficult to understand for the novice.

    100k is ludicrously small.

    Alternatively there are plenty of image sharing services, however they will eventually end up as dead links, and it would be much better to upload them so that Aussiefrogs has a copy on their servers.

    Do we need a thread (or is there one already?) to guide AFroggers through the process?

    In Irfanview, select Save As, then choose JPG format. Options will give a quality choice, which reduces the file size. How far to go down is a matter of judgement.

    The procedure in Gimp and some others is similar - Save As, and choose a jpg format.

    You can strip EXIF etc at the same time. AF will accept a photo of larger than 100k.

    Imagemagick can reduce a jpg file to any byte size you care to name, which is very much a matter of judgement, eg convert image.jpg -define jpeg:extent=150kb result.jpg

    If you are taking photos with a digital camera, you will most likely find on the camera there is an option to resize your photo before down loading it onto your PC
