    Not a complaint, just an inquiry:


    when posting huge (2000x2000) images via the "", is there a way to resize it here?

    my computer can be slow sometimes, and it's just annoying having to go to tinypic.com when i have alot of pictures

    I'm afraid we don't support the capability to re-size images dynamically on PF.

    You need to save them in the right size, no other way around it.

    Besides, when you use images hosted elsewhere and linked using img tags there is no way for PF to do anything with the images - everything is done client side.

    I simply resize them in paint, it comes with Windows.

    Me too. And I usually go for the biggest I can get away with (800 x 600). :devil:

    Is there a way to post them directly from one's computer instead of linking ?
    I use photobucket now.

    You can post them as attachments, but that's not the preferred way.

    We cannot access files on your computer, so you have to upload them in some way - as attachment or at an external host.

    Exactly. We already have 47882 attached images as of right now. Oh. And you can blame me for a few. :redface:

    There are online image resizers. Search for that on google.

    I have used http://www.makeathumbnail.com/index.php to reduce a pic to 300x300 and that site then stores it for you, though I don't know for how long.
