Oh Boy - look out striblue!
Joe, welcome , it's great to see your work and enthusiasm over here at flyfishingforum.
I have always enjoyed your contributions on the FFSW board and now that you're here you can give John M. a run for his money. :hehe:
Great looking flies - I would fish those with confidence! Flatwings are getting very popular. Ahhh, the force is getting stronger

I'm pretty sure you should be able to do the exact same thing.
When you go to post, Push the IMG button that is next to the "@" sign and is below the "size" dropdown.
A popup window should appear just like the other place. Put the link in there, push ok, and you should be all set.
I was going to look into a hosting page, but since you already have one, all the better! Hope this works for you, if it doesn't, we'll figure it out eventually.
I'll try with one of your pics from the other site.

Thanks for responding so quickly, I appreciate it, and I am anxcious to get started.
My camera is a Polaroid Model #PDC 1300
And on the other site that I use to attach pictures, I use a host site called Pixhost, although there is a service charge, but its very easy, for the computer eliterate to use.

Gotcha, read ya loud and clear. I'll see what I can do to make this easier.
What camera are you using to take the pictures? It may have a low resolution setting that would aleviate all of this.
Another route may be to go with a hosting site that would allow you to cut and paste a link into your posts.
I'll see what I can find.

:>) Now you've "discovered" why I have the
JoanMeister do all this electronic photo stuff. Actually, it's good to see her putzing at the computer while I draw another single malt.

I did not have to reduce the pictures on the other Board.
|06-04-2002 07:47 PM|
Ditto on the above. Pls don't give up on trying to post pics.
Your posts on FFSW have showcased some truly beautiful flies. One of them - your crease flies - inspired me to whip some up. Two Fridays ago, near midnight as the tide turned a 33" bass obliged me and took a chomp out of one. I'd even applied the scales backwards!

Welcome Aboard, Joe
As I've said before, you tie some fabulous flies. Keep up the good work. The help and encouragement you'll receive here is, many times, priceless.

This Program is pretty neat. It may look confusing at first but its not bad.
1. Download program. Open file that downloads. Install by clicking next throughout the installation sequence.
2. In the start menu under programs there will be the new folder "Jpeg Resizer" and in that will be the "jpeg Resizer" program. Open that up.
3. You'll need any pictures that you want shrunk in one folder. In the program, you'll see "source" and "destination" line. Click on browse on the right side and set these locations up.
4. Then you need to set the pixel size to 600x500 or less. If you leave "Keep Proportions" checked, then you only need to change one of the pixel dimensions. The other will automatically change to keep the picture properly proportioned.
5. If you pictures are too big bytes wise, then you can adjust the slider under "compression" to a lower quality picture.
6. You should then be able to hit ok. What will happen is that the program will take all jpegs in the "source" folder, resize them, compress them(if needed) and then place them in the "destination" folder. The file sizes will be smaller and then you will be able to attach them.
Please let me know if you need more help.
Hopefully this made a little sense.

|striblue||Joe..if you got the pop up telling you about size..I think you are almost there.... I don't know how to resize without the adobe Photo shop... but did you have to reduce size on the other Board?There may be another way...Nick do you Know?|

I want so much to be able to attach some of my fly pictures, but its not as easy here, as is is on the other site.
|06-03-2002 10:11 PM|
As I said before, my age makes it hard to obsurb all the helpful information submitted by all you people that want me to succeed in post messages and pictures.
I made a little progress, I have been able to post a very short message, but its a start.
Now my ambition is to be able to attach pictures, I will keep trying, the world hates a coward or a quitter, not being either, with your permission, I will keep trying.
I tried but i received a popup saying (Max pixel 600 x500, now I have to learn how to reduce the size of the picture I was trying to attach

And if you preview the message before posting, I think you have to add the attachment again before you submit the post. Also, if you post the message and the attachment doesn't show up, there doesn't seem to be a way to add an attachment by editing the message. I think you have to start again with a new message. Helpful hint: copy the text of your message before you try to post or preview the message (right click, highlight text and click "copy"). Then if something happens and you lose the message you can right click and paste the text into the new message without having to type it all over again.

Hi Joe, I've also seen your flys on FFSW. These instructions are copied from some that Juro posted a while ago.
"1) Save your picture from the url above to a local folder on your computer (right mouse button, save picture)
2) Create a new post in the archive area and type in your recipe
3) Using the "attach file" feature (down below where you typed the recipe) browse to where you put the image in step#1 and select the image
4) Click [Submit Reply]"
On my computer durring step 3 I have to click on the file type and "select all" to see the pictures. to be posted the picture has to have a file smaller than 64,000 bytes and dimensions smaller than 600 X 500 pixels.
When you post the message the picture will be included at the bottom of the message. It will not show up when you preview the message.
I hope that this helps I look forward to seeing your posts.
