Hi all,

So when posting pics in my few past threads I have people complaining about the resolution of the images and how they were taking up so much space in the page and making the thread unreadable. So the options were either to resize the images and lose on the resolution, or to upload them twice I guess, once resized and one as a zip file or just links.

Both options were unappealing to me. So I decided to research a bit and I found this website that hosts images, forever, for free, and it offers thumbnail options! Here's the hosting website: Fast, Free Image Hosting - ImageBam


Here's an example. The image below is 3480 x 4640.


The thumbnail will show it in a thread friendly fashion, while if you click on it, you will get the full resolution :)

I hope you find this website helpful when you upload images next.
Cheers :beer:

Try Imgur. That is what I use and many other members too. When you go to post an image, just click on "Large Thumbnail" and you will get a very good size photo with very good resolution.

No one around here uses PhotoBucket. When they went to this outrageous pay to play system, many people who used them as the only place to store their photos lost everything. There are still a lot of threads with no pictures because of that. Most people use Imgur around here now. I have always backed up my photos in more than two places, so I lost nothing.

I use imageshack.
When I touch your pic it does get bigger but it appears to not increase the resolution back to hidef. Can't read anything on that driver.

That tends to happen when the photo is out of focus. I noticed it too. ;)

If you are talking about the Blitz Linear Driver, I hope it shows up soon, too. Can't wait to see your 503nm build, Peter. :yh:
