Trouble posting pics in TRs?

Postby JA_son27 » Sun Aug 08, 2010 1:49 pm

I'm having difficulties putting pictures up in trip reports, very slow to no progress, anyone else having these issues? My pictures fit the guidelines, and have never had this problem before. Is something going on with the server Bill, or is the problem on my end?

The "guidelines" are a bit misleading. If your image is over 1600 pixels in width or height it'll be scaled down by the server to fit that size. This can be slow, whether due to the file size of the upload or the server processing time to do the scaling. On my semi-poor connection I find it many times faster to scale down the image myself prior to uploading, though often I don't bother.

Personally I use GIMP for such manipulation -
