Photobucket is limiting free accounts to 25mb now so I'm rethinking how I do certain things. With regards to when I do a macro game I'm thinking of using flash. Can you guys test this for me to see if it works?

If it does work it'll be great. Instead of three images which can total to 750kb I'll end up with one below 200kb.

Hi. I Like the idea and it works great with the "hover" and "click" thing.
But it seems to me that the pics have a low resolution or have been cropped to much. The pixels are easy to see assquared tiles.

But then again...it might just be my eyes! :shock::O

:G

I have reduced the quality and the images weren't all that good to begin with. As long as you can see it clearly, I'm ok with it being a bit rough. Are you sure you're viewing it at the highest quality? Right click on the file then go to Quality and make sure there is a tick next to High. It seems fine to me. But I am viewing it in a room with lots of light. So I may not be able to see it until later.

Thanks for looking.

I checked the settings and it was/is set to high.

So I guess it must be my eyes then!

But with 3 pics @ 200kb I think you have done a fine job. Keep 'em commin'

It's 160kb :-)
I've done five of them now. The biggest is 164kb. There are a few I'm not happy with. The text isn't lined up correctly. I was going to re-do them but I've checked on some of them and it is all fine before I save the file. I think it's just a perk of the way the program is saving it. Still, it works. I will re-do the first one though.

Here are all of them so far.

They worked yesterday when I checked at home, but photobucket seems to be having a spell right now. I also noticed some mild pixilation, but I don't think it detracted from what you are trying to accomplish. Neat idea Ferny, it works great for what you are doing.
Edit: Cripes!! I hit send too soon, they are again working fine!!
