Posting big photos

Hi everyone,

As a result of the discussion on image resizing, I've created a new BBCode tag that handles image resizing for you.

If you have a picture larger than 640 pixels wide, instead of using the [img][/img] tags to add an image to a forum post, use [bigimg][/bigimg] instead. Alternatively, you can use the "Big Images" button in the Reply page.

If you don't know how wide your picture is, use the [bigimg][/bigimg] tag anyway.

This saves everyone from having to scroll horizontally and it reduces load times for pages (as the browser doesn't have to download a ginormous image).

So that everyone can still view the full-sized copy, it wraps the image around a [url][/url] tag which then opens in a new window.

Now that this tag is available, there should be no excuse for people adding ginormous images to forum posts. You have been verbally warned, and you will recieve a warning increase if you fail to use this tag.

Please direct any comments/criticisms to this thread.

To Michael,


I posted a small photo quite a while back and I was accused of posting a, "Postage Stamp sized photo" - Can't win!   lol!

I thought about re-posting a larger version of the same image, but made to look like a real postage stamp, but I didn't.

Keep up the good work & thanks for the good advise.

Cheers: Graham.
