Message Board questions and/or concerns

#2
Is there a media page where we can upload pictures (proof) we actually caught something? It's always nice to have a photo of some guys he caught a 5 foot leopard shark on the SC Pier on opening night of lobster season. Wait that we me, but the picture is smallin the avatar. ;)

You can attach a file (picture) to your post. I don't know if there's a size limit. Let me see. On the picture I just posted it looks small on the message board. But, when you click on the smaller picture it then enlarges to a larger picture. Can you have more than one picture? I added a second picture that origionally was about 2.5 MB that was too big to load. I reduced the size to about 1 MB and it loaded fine. So it looks like you can post multiple pictures and fairly large size pictures. However, it also looks like if you start with a really small picture, i.e., the small 20.8 kb picture from Robert, then the picture remains pretty small.

As to the original question of a media/picture page, I don't see how we would do it on the message board even if we added a forum just for pictures. Ive never used Instagram but perhaps there's a way to have a PFIC Instagram page on the site just for pictures? Some people also post their pictures on a photo site and then link to that site (as does Hashem) and I imagine that's still an alternative way to post pictures.

It's easier than I said above. It looks like you can directly add a picture to your post to about 750 KB. Just hit insert image.

Looks great, Ken. Not to nag, but when will the previous threads become available? Nevermind - I see you addressed that in your opening message.

Interesting Ken. For the previous board, the limit was 100kb per picture. My iPhone original picture settings produces a picture much larger. What I was doing for reduction is to email the pic to myself. In doing so, it offers reduced sizes which I open, save back to the phone images, and attach and post.
It seemed I was experiencing the same results with the new board, thus the 20k reduced pic (that appeared small). I will have to do some more testing.

Redfish, if you want to upload photo from iPhone, you can take a screenshot (and crop it) while viewing it. The resulting image has the pixel resolution as your phone screen. For iPhone7 this is 1334 x 750 pixels, which is good enough for most occasions.
