Thanks. That is very good to do on a large display (laptop size), but unfortunately does nothing for the problem on a small screen tablet where the print is so small as to be undecipherable without having to mess around. An 8 megapixel image is simply too large for most forum viewing.

If the software is supposed to downsize the image it does not seem to be working correctly as that link has a large 3264 x 2448 pixel image that hogs the screen.[/quote

No it doesn't Don. You have to do it yourself. Like I said, laziness plays a big part here.

Cheers

Sorry, I misinterpreted what you said.

I manage a forum on different software and we have a maximum one side dimension of 900 pixels. The system downsizes any uploads. But if someone posts an image from a photo host using the [img] tags, then the resize fails.

It would be great if everyone who posted images realized that large pixel size images are a problem, as well large file sizes using a lot of bandwidth that someone has to pay for.
