The Lady Bulldogs of Colmesneil, Texas win their season opener.

Comments and criticism are always welcomed. I am not sure why but the exif data is being stripped from the images.

See my reply to your other thread here. The images were too large (either the dimensions or the file size were over the allowed limits):

It's also worth noting that when images are too large the system software does some compression which really affects sharpness. You'll probably want to re-post images that are within the size limits which should give a better indication of the actual image sharpness.

With one exception the images were well under the 256kb limit. I will resize again going smaller for the site.

I am using irfanview to resize. Is this still an acceptable method?

it's not just file size, it is also dimensions. Make sure the dimensions are under the limits as well.

Yep... the longest side should be no longer than 1024 pixels. If you exceed that (for example trying to attach an image that is 1025 x 600 pixels, which is 1 pixel longer than allowed on it's longest side), the forums software is going to resize and recompress that image, and strip out the Exif at the same time.

So, you need to watch both file size and dimensions if you want to attach images to posts here (rather than just "hot linking" to them from another site like dropbox.com, etc.). As mentioned in the post I just linked to, you'll see the maximum allowed sizes here when you use the Manage Attachments features:

EXIF Data

We do that for a variety of reasons, as not everyone has a fast internet connection. So, file sizes too large can make it difficult for users to load images in posts. Also, some members have metered connections (so it costs them more to load larger web pages).

In addition, the average monitor resolution is still something like 1024x768 now (sorry, not everyone has the latest 1080p or even higher resolution displays), meaning they'd need to scroll left and right, and/or up and down to see an entire image if we did not limit the sizes that users can post here.

So, if you don't want the forums software resizing and recompressing your images (stripping out the Exif at the same time), make sure any images you attach to posts here are no larger than 253.9KB, with the longest side no longer than 1024 pixels.

I think I understand now. I can be a bit slow on the uptake at times.

Here is one I resized that should be well within forum limits.

That image was reprocessed by our forums software. So, either the dimensions (longest side should be no longer than 1024 pixels), or file size (file size should be no larger than 253.9KB) were outside of the maximums allowed here.

Thanks for being patient. I have no idea why but know to watch closer when doing the resizing. I have no idea why but the above image I selected resize at 800x600 but when going back still shows the long side at 1200.

I know what to watch for so will hopefully no make the same mistake again.

He is the same shot with what should be a correct resize.
