The photo extends off the righthand side of my browser window and I had to scroll left-to-right to see the car's A-pillar. In the context of a project journal, with many photos this size one after another, I'd have to scroll back and forth over and over.

Rob and Curtis,
Tell me if this would be a good route to go. Post photos in the normal 600x450 pixel size and upload at the 1024x768 size to give the viewer the option of enlarging if they want. If I knew that at one time, I had since forgotten that the little box-in-a-box in the upper right hand corner of the photo, indicates the photo can be blown up to full size - in a new window. The new window also has to be maximized.
Example:

I like it. How did you do that?

Rob,
First of all, I'm using Picasa to resize my photos. I believe the easist way to resize is to export the photo. When you "export to folder", you can select your image size, being either "use the original size", or by using a sliding bar, select a number of other pixel values. After talking to Curtis and experimenting with these couple of posts, it seems a 1024x768 export size is a practical maximum. That then is your upload size to the forum, shrunk to 600x450 in British V8 software but expandable if desired.

The other option in posting photos is to link in from another website such as Photobucket. Tim used a 1024x768 pixel size here:
[forum.britishv8.org]
For me, the viewing of his posted photos is no problem, but as I understand, it can cause others to have to scroll over to see the complete picture....no fun. There can be other issues when you link in from another website.
Ken
