Is there a trick to posting pictures? It is limited to 900x900 pixels, so I have to crop every one before posting on here...

There are programs that autocrop all the photos for you.

Like Google Picasa.

I use photoshop too. The three photo limit BYAP has would get annoying for me, I'm picture happy.

Yep all images have to be cropped, otherwise it gets a bit silly.

Preferable to upload your pictures on the forum rather than link to an outside photo storage place, otherwise ultimately threads end up filled with link errors. Those accounts don't last forever and if you change something like sort out your online stored photos, then all the images on this forum won;t show any more. :(

Good point Colum, have just doubled the attachments to 6 images per post. :)

Since most cameras produce more pixels than that, wouldn't it be great to update the forum so that the photo upload tool automatically scales down the size, retaining the picture's aspect ratio?

You'd have to get a mod to do it, such as this one: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/mod/ ... e_resizer/

I don't think that resizes the users image during upload though, just the size it shows the image on the forum. Hmmm, I do need to update t the new version, should do that soon.

There are other mods out there, that's just the one I remembered. There's a good chance you'll find one that does exactly what you need it to if ReIMG doesn't.

Hi
I take the photos with my Iphone. I then mail them to myself. Select medium size and they upload no problem.

Good idea! I will use this method for now, but hope to see the forum upgraded to make it easier to upload photos...
