Incredible. Thanks, Hector!



For those struggling to resize their photos:

Photo resizing software. Free:
http://photofiltre.en.softonic.com/


Also, apparently with some Windows users, simply e-mailing photos to yourself will resize them for you automatically. Idunno.gif

 

 

Here's another re-sizing application.  It's on line... you don't have to download the application, you just resize it on line then download the resized image.  Allows you to rotate image and make other changes:

Hector - I'm currently leading a project in my department at work to develop a complete operational manual. From a technical writing standpoint, that's brief, to the point, and easy to understand.

Very nicely done.

One thing I do want to mention though that's a little different from the old site -- you can select multiple photos to attach to the message at once. No more selecting a photo, attaching, waiting for it to upload, and then doing it 2 or 3 more times for how ever many more photos you might have.

I need help uploading my pics for the BOTY survivor


Ok, send me one. Let me see what you are trying to do. BMXsociety@gmail.com let me know who you are when you send the e-mail so I know I'm talking to the right guy.

You should be able to upload them on your own. That's why I want to see one of the shots you are having trouble with, so I can see what the issue might be.

Most likely, it is the size of the photo.

This resizing software can help: http://photofiltre.en.softonic.com/

if you tried to upload the photos after writing up a bunch of text, the page links might have expired. copy your text and refresh the page...then paste the text again and upload your pics.


if you take too long writing something, sometimes it doesn't work work.
