IMAGE SIZING TIPS AND GUIDELINES

Image Resizing Tips

Cloudy Nights Image Posting Guidelines:

Image size is restricted to a maximum size of 800x800 pixels and the file size is restricted to no more than 125KB...Please consider our dial-up users when posting an image, the smaller the better. Any image over these 2 parameters will be modified or deleted. Please note that the moderators of each forum within the Cloudy Nights community may further refine this policy in regards to image and file size within their forums. The policy within each forum will govern the posting guideline for that specific forum. If there is no policy posted in particular forum, this policy will be in effect.

Posting Larger Photos:

If you want to post an image larger than these limits allow, please post them to the members gallery, where size limits for pictures in threads do not apply. A link to the image in the gallery can be easily placed in your post, directing the reader to you photograph or sketch, allowing them to view it if they so desire. Doing so is a courtesy to members on dial up connection, as it allows them to chose whether or not to wait for a picture to load. This is actually the preferred method of posting photos here on Cloudy nights. Please make sure that you post "your" photo to your own gallery, not someone else’s. Then any time you want to refer to your photo from a post, you simply link to it. This is a much more efficient way of posting.

Once you post your own photos to your gallery, you can address that photo to appear in either just your gallery or any other gallery, such as the "members photos" gallery or the "equipment gallery". But more importantly, once you have posted your photo to your personal gallery, anytime you want to use that photo again, from anywhere on the internet, all you need to do is link to it.

Thanks,

Cloudy Nights Staff

Note from the ATM Moderators

In practice, please size your images so that readers do not have to scroll back and forth to see the image. Having one oversize image in a thread makes it necessary to scroll to read all messages on that page. When such an image is posted, we will send a Private Message for the poster to resize it. If we get no response in 24 hours, the image will be deleted.
