photo format and size

Post by barryadam »

When posting images, I've tried inserting the Photobucket link and the gallery link.

In both cases, the full photo is not shown in the forum message. It gets cropped.

I thought PB resized the images to forum format/size when you upload and select the image link for use in forums.

Here is what I am trying to show:

5874

Do I need to crop/edit the photo on my PC to a predetermined size, then go through the upload to gallery again?

I ran into this recently too. My own images are displaying too large. Photobucket may give you a choice of other resolutions and if so use one with a max of 800 pixels on the longest dimension.

Lemme see what I can do under the hood too.

All three pictures are fully visible on my screen.
I have a similar problem , but only with different computers. On one, my pictures are cropped on the others,they are not. It may be your screen setting.

It's totally a function of screen resolution on the device you're viewing the site on. If you're looking at the site on a laptop with 1200 pixels total left to right, then a 1200-pixel image is too big. Big desktop monitor with 1900 pixels left to right? No issue. 800 is a safe max, generally speaking, but I will still see if I can somehow constrain the presentation in the board settings.
