The general quality of images has improved enormously over the years, most members have managed to get some really nice stuff posted.

All we need to do now is to get smartphone images the right way up....

Thought you'd be used to that Martin!

Seriously though, resizing loads of pics can be a pain but the forum software does seem to have got a bit more flexible of late and will compress jpeg files itself if they are not too far over the 195 KB limit.

BTW, While attaching pics presumably uses up forum storage I imagine impact on bandwidth is probably less than linking to remotely hosted images with larger file sizes.

Not always as easy as it should be - seems to depend on what you use to rotate them whether the orientation you can see on your screen actually carries through to how they display on the forum.

I have a piece of software that can resize one or hundreds of pictures and doesn't take that long.

I tend to use ACDSee for photo management and Paintshop Pro for photo editing.

Just resized a few pictures to upload to the gallery and find I'm limited to 2 files at a time, is this due to length of time registered, low number of posts?.

If I upload 2 at a time I'm going to fill the picture gallery section with new threads

The two at a time is something internal with Vbulletin, you can actually load ten pictures per thread.

If I have multiple images to show, I make an album in "My Albums" then delete it when I think that it's been viewed enough.

Are CR*PPY pictures just those out of focus?

Another favourite is silhouetting the subject by having the light behind it. Anything which makes it difficult to see what you are photographing basically. Put a couple up, and we'll let you know !

I would say the first two of these are cr**py pictures. They are scanned from early engine mags and show the dot matrix of the old printing process. However they are precious to me as the only images of two engines I had years ago. The third one is another of my old engines which I think is a particularly good picture. No clutter around the engine, and something else there to give it scale. Just my personal opinion, of course.
