Resize for message board always works well for me.

I like whichever one you chose for your grandson. Much prefer that size to when they’re too tiny to see the details.

Great! You did it!

I would look for a size that is "medium" or limits to 600 pixels on a side.

I don't know how PostImage tiers their sizes, but something around that should work. Try it a couple of ways and see what's best.

While I've broken this guide as well, you generally don't want the picture to expand beyond the boundaries of the browser, and definitely not the boundaries of the screen. It's just a visual thing - doesn't break anything - but it's a better user experience if you can keep you width to 600-800 pixels. Even 800 may be pushing it a little.

But the pics are great!

Dirk

Examples. I would not want to go larger than 1024 on my screen (since I don't do my browser full width) and it could be too larger for people with older monitors or tablets. They would have too scroll to see everything.

400 Pixels Wide (SmugMug Small):



600 Pixels Wide (SmugMug Medium):




800 Pixels Wide (SmugMug Large):



1024 Pixels Wide (Smugmug X-Large):

Funny, I recognize that port...

OK, now, what about video? I have found that most of our stuff was done with our Osmo Pockets and there is a lot more video than there are pictures.

I did not see an option to save video on PostImage, so I wasn't sure if I needed to use something else or not.

While on the posting picture topic. Can someone help with using a personal picture for my avatar? I have tried resizing several times but I still get an error message. I have resized to under whatever it says the limit is. I've tried 3-4 times since I've been on here but haven't had any success. Any tips or help would be appreciated. I use Flicker if it matters but would be open to using something else if needed.
