    Default Image re-size issues when linking

    When I try to link a photo to this forum with the IMG tags, it gives me an error if the photo size is larger than 1024px wide. I dont want to resize the photos on my site, is there a way the forum can shrink the images automatically to suit when referencing the image? Or is there a way around this?

    I don't think so Carlos, 1024 pixels wide is a pretty standard size limit on forums like this. Sorry mate, looking forward to seeing your images too.
    Any troubles, try PMing Dave (David Stowe), he's pretty good with giving instructions on these matters.

    Carlos the best way to be honest is to upload your images to the forum rather than linking. That's the way most of us do it. I have an action in PS to resize etc and then save into a BOz folder on my harddrive. Then just Add File in the post.

    That's a pretty good idea.

    I set up my website after I found this forum, and the images I upload to the web are 900px anyways so they conform to most forums.

    One day I'll want to print some of them which will probably mean I need to rework the originals and make larger versions! :x :roll:

    Adam I keep my images in dated/title folder then within it have a "Raw" folder + a "high res jpg" folder + a "web" folder. I always work on and save a high res version and then resize for putting on the forum and save this copy in the "web" folder. That way you don't have to go back to the raw all the time.

    Which sounds like a really good way to file your images.

    I think I shall be revisiting my current folder structure as it is becoming somewhat disorganised, and it makes much more sense to PP a higher res version of an image and then shrink it for web as opposed to editing the original RAW twice.

    What size/res are you hi res jpegs?

    Sorry for thread hijack carlos

    Yes sorry again Carlos - i seem to be doing this a bit to your threads
    Adam i always process a 300dpi @ 100% high res file. 300dpi is what is needed if ever used for publication and 100% as i don't like to interpolate if i can help it. Usually no need - especially these days with the file sizes. I personally don't typically bother with tiff or even 16 bit although others will have their own opinions on this. This is just what i find best/easiest.
