Photobucket / Tinypic

Photobucket comment: Wow, with Tinypic gone, they sure have screwed-up photo hosting and posting. I was just reading the oil cooler pressure test thread and the photobucket picture was a mess. Clicking on it just led to a sign-up page.

My tried and true is direct upload to CCF. My camera has a low-res setting that posts directly with 100-150kb file size. My smartphone also has the ability to resize though it takes an additional step. Both work like a charm with fewer steps than offsite photo hosting. It's the way to go, IMO.

Random direct, CCF-host picture for your viewing pleasure:

Archived pictures from those photo hosting sites are disappearing from this and other forums.

Every Windows version since Win 1.0 has had Microsoft Paint or paintbrush.

Paint is very easy to use for resizing. It's always been there and will probably be there longer than the next photo hosting anyone chooses to use.

And for Mac users, Preview (comes installed) makes it easy to resize a photo.

You want 800x600 pixel / dots per inch.

You then SAVE on your PC

Then you "Attach a file..." here.. [ UPload ]

Yeah, the whole photobucket fiasco was a huge blow to most all forums. Direct posting here is great, but I hope the admin is backing everything up regularly smiling smiley

I've been using IRFANVIEW SOFTWARE for many years to resize and modify pictures. It's free and has good support, only for PCs though, not for Mac.

Wagon Master - it's "OK" and a decent size, but sure lack sharpness.

I use "Photofiltre7" a free Windows compatible graphics program that allows you to not only re-size but also edit the photo in many other ways such as cropping, adjusting exposures, adding text, sharpening etc.


No reason photos have to be poor quality. I make mine 1250 pixels wide since most everyone owns a modern widescreen capable monitor.

I like to use a hosting service (PostImages.ORG)so I can add photos right in the message and thus make a captioned addition to my posts.

I enjoy photography and learned the tech to improve and share photos by getting the software and teaching myself. Been doing so since my first ATARI computer back in the 1970s. smileys with beer

Nothing is forever - especially on the Internet! Don't forget that CorvairCenter Forum has lost photos in the past as well....

I try to keep it no bigger than 1000 pixels wide.
I hate having to drag the image back and forth in order to view the entire thing.
I view CCF on a Large Wide-screen TV as my monitor, and Dan's 1250pixels is too wide, but an even 1000 works real nice.

True. Dan's first picture is too wide but the 2nd 2 are fine.
The oil cooler picture is just super low resolution. Nothing you can do about that but take a high resolution picture to begin with.
