Resizing Photos For Photo TR's

Postby Wes » Mon May 21, 2007 6:51 pm

Since it's Photo TR season, this is a good time to remind everyone that you need to RESIZE YOUR PHOTOS before you upload them to TPR. The maximum size dimensions for standard landscape photos should be 800x600.

If you do not have a photo editing program such as Photoshop or GIMP on your computer and you are using Windows XP, you can download the Powertoy Resizer from Microsoft here:
http://download.microsoft.com/download/ ... ySetup.exe

If you need a tutorial on how to use it, go here:
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/usin ... lman2.mspx

Additionally, if you have Vista, or just don't want to use Powertoy, you can download Picasa:
http://picasa.google.com/
or Irfanview:

If you are on a Mac, you can use Preview or iPhoto, which come pre-installed on all Macs.

Posts with pictures above 800x600 will have the photos deleted. If this happens, you can edit your post and re-add the resized photos.

On this same note, something I've kind have been wondering... On the first page of the Terms of Service, Robb's second post states that you are only supposed to post 15 pictures per post, yet you are actually capable of loading 50 per post and I don't think hardly anybody actually abides by that rule. Does it actually matter? Or are we free to post up to 50?

^ Yeah, I need to change that in the ToS. While I'd rather not have every Photo TR be 50 photos per post, I think it's fairly rare that someone posts more than like 20 or 25.

Or give Irfanview a try, i find it very user friendly, when its comes to resizing and reducing quality to a lower KB.

If you upload via flock to photobucket, you can have it resize them for you.

We do NOT recommend uploading your photos via an external site like Photobucket, Imageshack, or others. Many times, the links to the pictures will die after a length of time, thus causing your entire to show up with missing images.

If you upload your photos to TPR, it guarantees they will be there as long as the site is.

We only move Photo TR's to the Archive forum if the photos have been uploaded through TPR.

Thank you for posting this friendly reminder.

I don't mind loading since I am on cable. However, I have seen people upload pictures that take up almost an entire 1280 by 1024 pixel screen! :shockr:

I agree Irfanview is a great free download. It also has a few editing tools such as filters, effects, etc. The best part is that it doesnt take forever to load.

I don't like Infranview much. I use Microsoft Picture Manager. It's not the best, but it gets the job done fast.
