I am probably an offender as I uploaded the pics from my ipad. I will have to look for a way to size them before uploading. Sorry if I caused any issues.

Here's a great video on how to make your iPhone or iPad resize an image before sharing. Just follow the tutorial and resizing will be a snap from then on out

HINT: Just make the width of your images 900 pixels during the tutorial and avoid the dreaded side scrolling to read posts

Nope, sorry, still side scrolls on my iPhone... My point being, that since there is no resolution standard for browsers, pick a reasonable size. 800 to 1024 isn't bad for tablets, with height proportional. If you really need the high resolution, you can host both and use the lower resolution image as a link to the higher one (requires a hosting service and won't work with the VAF attachment) so that the reader can decide for themselves whether to view the high resolution image. Meanwhile, the low res image doesn't hinder downloading for the casual viewer.

Well yea, on a phone

Somewhere in the VAF info for photo placement there is a 900 pixel width recommendation.

The scrolling problem is solved if you add the image as an attachment and not as an inline photo. If you want the detail, you click on it to enlarge it, but you're expecting a large image at that point and don't mind scrolling.

For PC's I've been using ifranViewer for years. It's free and has more features than the usual MS free products.

Thats very true and one of the benefits of VAF hosting the images.

If VAF hosting images ends up working it will make this site even more valuable. So many image links broken, so much knowledge lost.

I just hope the indiscriminate uploading of excessively large images doesn't ruin this experiment

Hopefully that is the case OR the thing could just give a message and error out if the filesize is above a certain limit. No way everyone is going to police themselves on this.

That's what it does now, but the limit is rather high, IMO. 2MB images are allowed, but that could be cut back to 500kB and you'd lose none of the value. If there's any doubt about that, check out the ad posted for the RV-6 today... no image larger than 500kB, but all of them are larger than my HD screen when I click on them. Great detail and small image size.

You're right that people won't self-police on this unless you force them to do it themselves, or do it for them. That's why I think allowing *anything* to be uploaded, but processing it on the server down to a 500kB file (max, you wont' even need that for most of them) is the solution.
