Users that need some help with picture manipulation
Start Reading Here


This is a typical question of a new person wanting to uPload pictures to
the forum, who may need help.


Question:
I have a Kodak EasyShare C300 and my lowest definition is 1024 x 768.
Does that mean I can or can't upload to this site?

Answer:
You can uPload your pictures after you reduce them in size.
***

The following information is for the user that wants a more instructive
explanation of how to do the three most often asked about picture
manipulation processes.

ONE FREE PROGRAM called "PixResizer" Will be explained here
PixResizer is my choice as it is very simple for a new user and can do both single and multiple picture
reductions using 2 clicks of your mouse most of the time.



Read on if you want more help.

Three basic picture manipulation steps explained:
(Users that need help start here:)

1) PIXresizer (Resizing your pictures & Tutorial)
2) UPloading Pictures to your personal album on this forum.
3) How to Embed Pictures in your Post messages:
4) Recap UPloading and Embedding Pictures.

Download and Install Pixresizer

Start resizing pictures & Tutorial:
1) I will first turn you on to a free
software called Pixresizer to re-size your pics.
The information in this section will take a typical digital camera that takes
1024 x 768 pixel pictures and render them down in size using ONE FREE
PROGRAM called "PixResizer".

There are many resizing programs out there. I chose this one.

PixResizer is my choice alone, and it is very simple for a new
user and can do both single and multiple picture reductions
using 2 clicks of your mouse most of the time.


Decide if you want to download Pixresizer:thumbsup:
The two button action for one pic is so easy. Also you can edit the size of a
whole folder of pics in one fell swoop, and that is the option I enjoy. Click here to view what the Pixresizer program will look like

Your choice to use another picture resize program here:
This link on the forum gives many ways of
resizing your pictures suggested. If you want to use these optional
programs don't go on here to learn more of Pixresizer:

***

PiXresizer
... an easy free program to edit size your pic's before
sending them in emails or add them to your album here on the forum.
Main web page here for Pixresizer:

Now Install the Pixresizer Program ... it is easy to install:
Click here to download the file to install Pixresizer:
After you download the program to your computer and installed it.
Please come back here and look at the brief tutorial below for quick use of the program.

***

Brief tutorial of your new PIXresizer Program:
There are two options for resizing pictures
1) One picture at a time.
2) Doing a whole folder of pictures at the same time.
Note:This second choice is a good way of doing a whole download
of your camera that you have saved to one folder.


The first Option:
For one picture resizing:
1) Make sure the top selection "Work with one file" is selected (default).
2) You don't have to touch any button on the screen that comes uP just
take the defaults
with the maintain ratio check mark made and look at the
custom window and see that is below 800 wide x 652 height.
Note: I chose (600x450) adjust to a size below the max size = (800 wide x 652 height) if you wish.
3) Click "load Picture" (Find your picture to resize and select it.)
4) Click "Save Picture" (Choose where you want to save the picture.)
Note:In one click it is done. This example being the before and after.
Example:
Before = (Name_File.jpg) After = (Name_File(600x450).jpg)
well within the 800 wide x 652 height Max size for a picture to uPload.


The second Option:
For multiple picture resizing at one time:
1) Click the top selection "Work with multiple files".
1a) The numbers in the program can be followed for directions however if
you keep most of your pictures in the 600x450 range you will be satisfied.
2) Click "Source" = (Chose where the folder is located in your computer).
3) Click "Destination" = (Choose and or make a new folder where the
re-sized pictures will go).
4) Click "Save pictures"
That is it ... you have now re-sized many pictures in one foul swoop.
Easy eh? Remember you can click on a picture an right click to see the
properties. This will show you for example that they are smaller in size
than what you started with.

NOTE: The pictures done with this method WON'T show you After = (Name_File (600x450).jpg)
but will show you the same file name as this example after = (Name_File.jpg) in the new folder
that you re-sized all the pictures to.

2) UPload your pictures to fit in your album on the forum.

Some basic knowledge and limitations:
Start Terms to understand:
Key: pixels shown (Wide x Height):
I will use the words pictures or pic or pic's interchangeable:

For an Avatar the max pixel size = Max size 150x150
For Pictures uPloaded to the forum = Average size 640x480 & Max size 800x652
Now pictures can be smaller in size but the system will stop you from larger.
I have the Avatar at max size and the pictures are 600x450 as an example:


There are two types of picture files used here:
Examples: JPG & GIF files:
jpg is a type of picture file example = (Name_File.jpg)
gif is a type of picture example = (Name_File.gif)
***
End Terms to understand:
***

uPloading of pictures to the forum
Start UPload your pictures:
1) Click "Album" uP on top of the forum header. (See Above picture of your gallery)
2) Scroll down mid page to see the words "Your Personal Gallery"
3) Click "Your Personal Gallery"

4) Click "UPload Pic" (Top left corner)

Use a picture from another website using
your IE or Mozilla Firefox browser without
uPloading it or copying it to the forum.

Good for snaggletoothing pictures from some other website
locations.
Right clicking on an image and clicking properties
and then copying that location is the key. That is just point
to that location using the [img]URL%20of%20pic%20location[/img].
Easy once you got the hang of it. Used when you are posting on
forum.

Example:
1)Go here in IE/ M-FF > http://www.aaa-calif.com/westways/0303/pg10a.jpg
2)Then right click on the picture of the diagram.
3) Then click on PROPERTIES and you will see an URL address
4) Copy that address > http://www.aaa-calif.com/westways/0303/pg10a.jpg
5)Then go back to the forum and put that address into the message
you are compiling and highlight the string and click "Img" @ the top
like so.
Image
the one above has a space after "[img]_http etc...." so it is a mistake an
won't show the picture correctly.

This picture is posted correctly.
Image

So again ... this is how you can snaggletooth a picture
from a location elsewhere and use it from that location
and not have to uP load it to your T&TTT forum library.

Optional Web browsing instead of using IE,
Try Firefox with many options


For those that don't want to know more or install Firefox STOP HERE PLEASE~

For those that want to know more or install Firefox Please continue on~

To those that haven't ever used Firefox or the other products by Mozilla,
I will point you to the links here and explain some of the benefits.

Some of the Benefits of using Firefox:
A Better Web Experience, Faster Browsing, Automatic Updates, Tabbed Browsing,
Improved Pop-up Blocking, Integrated Search, Stronger Security, Clear Private Data,
Live Bookmarks, Accessibility, Customize Firefox, and Next Generation Web Support


What the new person to Mozilla Firefox should expect:
Faster browsing:

Less chance of virus assaults and less hassle while browsing:

A robust tool box of options that can make the browsing experience more pleasurable:

Easy searching using the two Google tool bars can help you here on the forum:

Tab Browsing has changed the way the web is used for me. Maybe you too
would like this choice if you have lived with one screen IE browsing for
too long. I would equate the one screen view of the web as from a prison cell.
Looking out one small window at a time. Where as the Tab browsing
experience is like looking out many windows from on high in a 360 degree
panoramic view. Yes IE now just put this option in their latest product
however you are still subject to the attacks:

Here is the information to install Firefox:

Install Firefox for Web browsing with many options Here
You can have Internet Explore and Mozilla Firefox browsers operating at
the same time. So you can try Firefox and see if you like it.
Is Mozilla Firefox browser for you?
Consider using Mozilla Firefox as a safer browser with many Extensions.

The two tool bars below can be used on the Firefox browser
to help you find threads and Items on this forum.


There are two tool bars that Firefox browser uses for Google searches:

Gee, thanks a LOT Steve:

Now I have no excuse not to learn tiny URLs.

Seriously--great job. I myself am way too lazy and my life is way too glamorous to take the time to research all of this.

For example, right now, I have to remove the coal scum from my barbecue.

You understand a picture is worth a million words. If you run into a
problem and need some assistance a few pictures can bring the forum
to life and well your problems will melt away.

A point to think about if you are building a Trailer:
Think about WEIGHT.
Planning weight issues will save on initial co$t as well as ga$ down the
road. Over building such as using 2x4's instead of smaller framing has
been a regret for many builders here. Ask or read about light weight
construction and you most assuredly will be happier down the road.


Ready to build, already own a trailer or just looking, we like everyone.
So come and share. The T&TTT family will be looking forward to your
posts and progress. The forum has a life of its own and night owls run
the halls all hours of the night. Answers come pretty quick as this forum
is active so come have fun with us.

With warm regards, "We are so glad you found us." :applause:
