    Guys, you can still post pics using Shutterfly if you wish. After coping the URL address, open the 'Insert Image' icon here and past in the url address.

    If you are going to host it here, then try sizing the pic to 600 width. If your software also offers a image quality, if not try to do a small croping and see if you have it there (that is where mine is), set it for 65 or so. this should give you a pic smaller that 100,000.

    Picture Posting tweaking for this forum...

    Here's one @ 640 X 480...I had to decrease the "quality" (or "file size" in Photoshop from a "3" to a "2".

    Has anyone found a way to Preview your text AND the photo before posting...???

    Like I posted on the caboose, use the img and Shutterfly [like CTT] and it works great [no re-sizing needed]. :)

    Jimbo, Not yet. When you first look at the preview, you thing the attachment isn't there, but it is.

    Like Chief says, I like hosting on Suttterfly better. That way you can see it when you preview.

    Hey Chief and Tom!

    This seems like a good forum for now until CTT is back up. I hope we enjoy our stay! :D

    Think I'm going to post CTT and herer too. Pretty good place. :D
  8. ;) You know, Chief, I think I will do the same. Once I get the scanner working, I can post a couple of pictures of the " Ever famous, legendary, Blueberryhill RR "
    :eek: :eek: :eek:
    I noticed that there are not a lot of recent posts from the regular folks on this
    Forum. I wonder how many members they have. It probably says that somewhere.

    Hi everyone. Chief, thanks for the invite. Tom, great deal on the IR cars. I bought a 3 pack of IR hoppers a few months back for $17 and thought it was a great deal, but all they did was derail. It was the couplers. I opened them up with a Dremel and they behave just fine now. The IR cars are very nice. I've seen 3-packs at shows going for $45 - 50.

    Man, am I sick! It took me 4 hours to mow my lawn this weekend (over 2 days) when I usually do it in an hour a half. If this keeps up, I'm going to have to go see the doc.

    I gave Elvis' date of birth when I registered. Don't tell anyone!

    P.S. I used a hacksaw blade to cut the 2" foam Friday night with great results.

    Go see a doctor, Jim. They'll find what's ailing you. Glad to hear that hack-saw worked. I've cut foam - the thin 1 & 1/2 and 2 inch boards I use - by scoring it. Hate the mess.
