... so are there any tricks to posting pictures from my new folders onto any forum sites [?]

Gotta great sunset effect on one of my settings . Wow , I like to see the result here
after a transfer. Think I'd like to post a few special pictures from time to time. Take
a sabbatical from writing for a while. That lock on focus and grids are cool ,
a new toy.

Only two folders so far and growing, lots of room to grow.

First resize your pictures to 800x600. If you aren't using a photo editor and this is all you need to do I recommend the Power Toys for Windows picture resizer. You can read about that here: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/u...schelman2.mspx

or you can read how various other people do it here: https://www.clubtread.com/sforum/topi...TOPIC_ID=19643

The CT engine will compress the photos too but resizing first helps a lot with the upload process.

Once you have them sized then it is simply a matter of starting a thread or replying to a thread and either click the button with the two green arrows for multiple photos or the one next to it (on the left)for singles.

All of the above really straightforward and intuitive but I would suggest using this thread to experiement before you post to a bunch of other threads and make people angry. I hope your photos are better recieved than your prose.

And once you get the hang of it keep in mind it is not necessary to share every photo you take. I'm only stating this again from you apparent desire to share your every random thought. For that I would recommend starting yourself a blog. It's free and easy here: https://www.blogger.com/start

Good luck.

Hi Cambium:

You no longer have to resize photos. Just click on this icon (after you've opened a new topic window or a reply button) and a window will come up asking if you'd like to install the uploader. After the uploader is installed a window will open where you can choose which pictures you would like to post.

Take care,
Lynn

thanks for the details. Getting advice too from relatives and one is showing up in 10 days
to supply me with some cool computer tools and expertise. wow, can hardly wait,
guess i'll have to go out and "pic and choose " some shots for now.

Can I post the ocassional 30 second video - burst from time to time ? I see that no one seems
to do that other than some joking link from cyber world.

DON'T SAVE OVER THE ORIGINAL!!!! YES, I AM YELLING!!! THIS IS IMPORTANT!!! WELL, NOT THIS PART!!!! BUT THE PART ABOUT NOT SAVING OVER THE ORIGINAL!!!!

Give it another name pic_001_2.jpg or something just to be sure. Or burn your original images to a DVD before you start messing with resaving. Back in my young, foolish days, I saved over a couple shots and they are now forever 400X300 pixels, which can print out, oh, about 4 inches by three inches.
