Allright this is my first post including a image. I just want to check how the pictures appear sizewise and all.

C&C welcome of course...:roll:

That would be considered a pretty small image size for forum posting.

I think most people size their images between 500-700 pixels wide. I've seen many go as wide as 800, but beyond that many would start to have difficulty viewing. I typically resize to 720px wide as I think everyone can view that without scrolling, though I occasionally like to go to 800. For vertical pictures, I'm not exactly sure what would be ideal.

If your software allows, it's also not a bad idea to try and restrict the file size to something reasonable for download, like 150k or under. If you're using Photoshop, it has a nice function where you can adjust the quality level and see a preview of the image and the file size as you adjust it so you can find a nice balance.

Personally I set the longest side to 800. That seems to work.

Welcome to the forum.

Nice, but too small.

Thank`s for all advices. I think I`ve "over read" the manual on the newbe forum about how to post images on this site. It says no bigger than 250kb, so I resized to much:?.... I`ll try again.

250k is max size of the file. it has nothing to do with the apparent viewing size of the image other than it can't be a file larger than that. i can post an image that's 2'' x 3'' that's over that or an image that's 20'' x 30'' that's under the limit. it's how you save the image that makes the difference..

I generally resize in Paint Shop Pro and I find that resizing to 800 pixels wide (landscape) and saving again as jpeg with default compression always drops me in under 250k. It can be somewhat frustrating as my desktop is 1920x1200 and when I look at the great pictures posted here I really want to make them larger!
