Image/Photo Posting Guidelines

Postby Tom Kuhn » June 9th, 2010, 3:06 pm

When uploading photos to the forum, please try to keep them to a reasonable size. Anything over screen display size (normally 1024 x 768 or 1280 x 1024) resolutions will require resizing once the image has been downloaded anyway to view the entire image, will take longer for the forum user to download, increase forum bandwidth usage, and require more web server storage to store. Currently, the only image formats allowed for upload are JPG, GIF and PNG. Currently the only file formats allowed are AI, CDR, EPS and PDF. The file size limit for individual attachments is 2.5Mb per file.

As always there are exceptions to every rule... If you're uploading a raster image and requesting someone to assist in vectorizing it for you, the larger the image, the better the resulting trace will usually be.

If you are in question as to the image resolution of a raster image, you can right-click on the image and click "Properties" from the pop-up menu. Clicking the "Details" tab from the Properties window will provide the image dimensions for you.

There are some nice free utilities in Windows to assist in resizing photos without having to load them into Adobe or Corel. Windows XP has a PowerToy offered by Microsoft that allows you to right-click on the image and "Resize Image" will be an option in the pop-up menu. Unfortunately, Microsoft did not offer a comparable PowerToy for Vista or Windows 7 but if you Google you can find numerous free utilities for those O/S to take the place of the Resize PowerToy for XP and operate just the same.
