Hi Val. There is a difference between the size and the weight of a picture. Reducing the weight, but not the size, makes a mammoth difference in how much a website can hold. eg a pic that measures 600 x 400 could weigh 860 kb and even 3 mb, and a pic measuring 1000 x 800 could weigh only 100 kb. (the lighter ones take a lot less time to be loaded as well). I have a free program on my computers to lighten the weight of all the jpeg pics and it means I can store a whole lot more on my ‘puters and not run out of space. So it’s the weight that takes up space, not the size in measurement. Most of mine weigh only about 60 kb, some weigh less.
Hi Bobbity, do you mean the programme you use compresses the image?
I use a programme that does that if an image I am going to use exceeds the allowable size limit. The only problem is that it reduces the resolution of the image somewhat. I don’t suppose that that matters a great deal in the Grups threads not unless you want to show a really stunning sharp image e.g. scenery etc.#1658878lilith7MemberMember since: April 9, 2017

Yet again I’ve just lost a post thanks to the log in feature. This was supposed to have been fixed so that:
1) We didn’t lose what we’d just tried to post, &
2) We weren’t taken to a different part of the site once logged in but to the Discussions list.
Neither of those happened. Added to the already considerable difficulties here – the C & P is sometimes still a problem – I’m just about ready to give up on this forum. Perhaps admin don’t especially want the discussion part of the site?#1658880huiatahiMemberMember since: March 22, 2017

Whats bugging me at the moment is I often come onto site just to read (getting less and less) but if I don’t log in I get an annoying pop up repeatedly telling me how to join….I DONT WANT TO JOIN! Pardon the shouting but I thought they might here if I shouted

I can see how that would be annoying Huiatahi – a bit like those annoying pop up ads some people get.
The C&P gobbledegook is apparently with us once again – it was fixed at one point but no more.
Oh joy! 🙄#1659193jandaMemberMember since: January 5, 2008

Irfanview is a handy free program for manipulating images, cropping, resizing, recolouring etc., and there are many others.
whatever is this thread doing on the Politics group anyway??.
