Some of you have already noticed, but just in case…

There’s a new Picture Post thread up for each trade.
This is the place to show off your best work.
Before & After pictures, Current Projects, Your equipment. Post anything that is trade related.

Keep it clean and no blatant advertising please! :D

Any other suggestions?

If your having problems with adding picture please keep 2 things in mind.
First, your attachment can't be too big! The size limit for attachments is 100K.
Second, Depending on how fast you internet connection is it may take a while for you to be able to upload the picture. When you select the "add this file" button be patient.

Post any questions about picture post in this thread and I'll try and answer them.

Thanks,
-Nathan

My pics are about 150 k.
I will try to find out how to make it smaller.
if you know of a link to a jpg program to tinker around with my pics, let me know.

Sorry, but its going to eat up server space if I allow big pictures.
You can always post an image on your own site and then provide a link for us.

Otherwise I would just use MS Paint. Its included in most of the Windows OS and its located at START->PROGRAMS->ACCESSORIES->PAINT
Open the image with MS Paint and then click on the top menu... IMAGE->STRECH/SKEW
Enter something like 75% vertical 75% horizontal... save it, and then check the size again. That should do it.

If that doesn't make sense let me know and I'll try to explain it again.

Did it give you an error message? If not you may not have waited long enough for it to upload.
Are you on dialup?
