Posting images from Imgur

Postby Hackjob » Sun Jan 18, 2015 1:47 pm

Hey there, I have figured out how to use flikr pretty well but my free account is filling up rapidly, so I created an Imgur account to handle some overflow. I was able to post a pic on a topic I am in proccess on, but the image was HUUUUUUGE, only about 10% was visible.
Like this:

Can anyone give me some advice on how to resize the image so it fits on the forum better? It might be something pretty easy, since any technology newer than a carburetor is pretty much a mystery to me.

Thanks!

I had that problem too. Click the "large thumbnail" button on the bottom.

Also, probably not a bad idea to just shrink and crop the images before uploading. I think there are even some respectable freeware photo editors out there, though I can't really recommend one in particular. If nothing else it'll save you on storage space on flickr.

Yeah, download GIMP or something or even use MS Paint to edit your photos down to say 1920x1080 max or something. There's very rarely a need to do it any bigger.
