Oversized Pictures

I've noticed it in Steve's and S&P's recent food pics. Other pics seem to be the little postage-stamp size, that need to be clicked on to enlarge. I just figured it was the DC app update to the new iPad. BTW, I like the big pictures.

When I down load them from our camera into our photo program, I always crop if necessary and resize to 4x6 inches before they are uploaded. It is a habit developed when we were heavily into emerald tree boa breeding. We took hundreds and hundreds of photos.

Let's be patient. I'm sure it will be fixed soon. We have a great tech team.
I noticed that too. Before, everything I uploaded from Dropbox was posted in a "frame" that had no white space to the right of the image. Now there is a lot of empty space before you get to that right border in the "attached image" box. I haven't been doing anything different. If all else fails, blame the software.

I haven't had a pic too big in a while, including the links posted by Steve Kroll.

I just posted a pic in "What Are You Doing". I took it with iPad rather than the phone, and it looks pretty big too.

If mine appear too large, please let me know. They don't appear that way to me.
I do it the same way. Upload from computer. I have a Photobucket account but its not as easy as uploading.
I guess I never used it enough to learn how to properly share/post photos.
I have never seen an over sized photo posted by you.

How do you get an option for a 4x6" photo? I have to select pixel count.

DC always used to automatically re-size photos rather than show the whole image full size. I don't know when that changed, but I suspect it's just a forum setting that was inadvertently turned off during a recent maintenance update. Maybe one of the admins can turn it back on again.

I don't like uploading photos directly to DC because that takes up server hard drive space. Instead I prefer to use my regular photo site (my phone automatically uploads images to there) and just linking to the photo.

And Addie... what in the heck are you talking about when you say 4x6? 4x6 what... inches... feet... cubits? FYI, computer images are measured in PIXELS, and pixel sizes vary from one device to another.


Sorry about that. Inches Steve. Before I upload a picture to DC. I always go in and reduce it to 4x6 inches. It is the perfect size for this site. I have some photo paper that is 5x7 inches and 4x6 inches. I often print out pics for the family in those two sizes. The program I have in my computer is from Kodak and it allows me to edit my pictures. From shading, creating a different background to cropping. I crop all my pics for DC.

Please explain how one sizes a picture in inches? I must adjust pixel count (horizontal and vertical) to adjust my pictures.
If there is a way to size a picture to inches, I want to know how to do it.

Thanks

You have to have the software that offers that option. I use iPhoto and can crop to 4x6, 3x5, etc.
