I understand that it is going to take a little time to make adjustments to this site. Is there a way to automatically reduce our photos so those of us who can't resize our photos (My tablet does not have this feature) can share pictures of our work.
There's no hurry in this. One step at a time. :)
I will say congratulations for reopening this site. :)

MG have you tried using Flickr. You can post a link to a picture and select a size on there. It’s free as well.

I use http://resizeimage.net/ when the image is too big. It should also work on any tablet or phone as it is done away from your machine, as long as you can download images that is!

Just be careful of the image size if downloading from another photo hosting company.
They normally allow you to reduce the size in pixels so as they don't cause page overflow issues.
So please ensure they fit nicely or they will have to be removed! :shock:

Just testing. Is this image too large? It is the size my tablet takes.
I did once try photo bucket when it was free and I couldn't get it to accept my photos.
Just tried the resize site you put on Ian's. How do I get the reduced photo to work on my tablet? It says it can open the file.

Hi MG.
its size is ok and a nice picture.
if any pic is uploaded it uses forum space, so smaller is always preferred and even better if its hosted off site in another photo hosting web site, like Flickr.
