Hi All,

 

I'm relatively new to the forum and am trying to figure out how to post photos in my threads. Can anyone point me toward the best web image hosting website (preferably free) or else walk me through how to shrink my own photos so that they can easily be added to my postings? I would like to share photos of some of the uniforms that I have recently picked up but can't figure out how to upload the pictures as trying to add them directly from my computer leads to the error message saying that the photos are too large. Thanks so much for your help!

 

Best Regards,

Nick

We do not allow outside Web hosting of photos.

You can use this resize tool that was created specifically for the forum by a member here

Thanks for the info. After posting here I did a bit more searching and found the tool that you linked and have since used it. I appreciate your quick response!

 

Best Regards,

Nick

I used to use the forum's photo resizing tool, but the last couple of times I used it, it actually made my images larger rather than smaller in size.

 

This led me to:

 

www.reduceimages.com

 

It's free and easy to use. So far I've resized, maybe 100 plus images without any drama and the resolution is nearly as good as the much larger original.

 

Plus it's only three steps - upload - resize & download.

 

I can't recommend it enough.
