upload them to photobucket.com, it will resize them properly for you.

For you guys hesitating to post pics for all of us to enjoy, worry not, you aint going to break anything. You can upload pictures to this website by pushing a few buttons and bam, picture is uploaded,and we will all "Oooh...and Ahhh.." your pictures.

Let's call this the Bonehead Approach, works for me...

GOAL NUMBER 1: RELOCATE AND RESIZE YOUR PICTURES FIRST
Resize your pictures on your computer first, here is how....
I have created a folder on my desktop, and copy any photo I want to post, into this folder. This allows me to resize it for the internet without messing with the originals. Resize it using any photo editing software, to lets say 150kb for dial up users like myself. Leave this folder open on your taskbar. Now go to the post you want to add the photo to...


GOAL NUMBER 2: SEND YOUR PICTURE TO THIS WEBSITE
Submitting your photo with a reply...
Start your reply to the post. You must select "reply" at bottom of the post, not Quick reply. After you type your text for your reply, select Additional Options, a drop down menu shows up, an "Attach: " cell shows up, you will click on the Browse button. This button forces you to look for your picture on your computer you want to add to the post.... Search and look above "My Computer", look for the "Desktop", select it, and now look for the folder you created earlier with your resized photos...select this folder. The folder opens, and select the picture you wish to post. The name of the photo will populate in the cell, and you select "open". By doing so, you have given Huntwa the address of where the picture you want posted is, on your computer.

You will see this "address" of the photo show up in the Attach: cell.

Now select "Post" and wait while your photo uploads into Huntwa, if you have dialup like me, it takes a minute, so wait and don't fiddle with anything.

Your pic is probably to big. use this site. It's easy to use http://www.picresize.com/ Just brouse to where your pic is select it , click on quick resize and select 75% smaller and the click resize. You will then save to your desktop or wherever you want to save it and then attach when creating a message. Easy after the first time. Ping me if you need help.

First time trying this website to resize and it is pretty simple.

Go to your profile and click on the heading where it says "Profile Pictures", you will be able to posts photos.

You cannot add photos to pm's.

You could send a photo by private message by copying and pasting the link from where your photo is located on Photobucket. (or other photo hosting site)

I have this problem, too. I think it has to do with native resolution or whether you downsize it prior to attempting to 'poast'

Sounds like you are downloading photos from your phone. When this happens you can go into your phone gallery and rotate the photo as needed so it will load correctly and then modify your post by reloading the photo again after you have rotated it.

If the photos are oversized, if they are larger than 800x600 they likely will not post, please try resizing your photos.

Bearpaw. Pardon my ingratitude and spoiled nature but 800x600 is pretty low Rez. I've often been hesitant to upload and share photos because I feel they look like crap. Is there anyway you can increase the max allowable resolution?

My internet is not on cable so I'm glad we don't have a ton of large size photos to download.  It may not be good enough for sharing the quality of a hassleblad pic but for most of our cell phone pics it gets the msg across ?

I agree. Someone interested in sharing higher quality images can post them to a cloud site with higher resolution and include a link.

It would probably slow down the site for many users with slower internet access. I have been searching for a mod that will automatically resize photos, but still looking.

@jackelope What site are you using now to host, resize and then copy the "paste in forum" link, like Photobucket used to do. I can't figure out imgur on my phone and want a place that's not individual forum specific.

After you upload the photos do you have to go resize each picture to not fo over this forums picture size limit. ( Assuming your phone is taking pictures larger than huntwa's picture size limit)

Note that by adding " width=X" to the front image tag like [ img width=X], you can vary the displayed sized of the image, without varying the source image.  The modification to your quote above uses width=480.
