    Good Photo Netiquette for posting photos on discussion forums

    Good Photo Netiquette for posting photos on discussion forums

    Just a friendly tip on sharing photos on discussion forums.

    A good rule of thumb is to resize your photos to around 700 pixels wide, maybe 800 pixels wide if your really want to show a large photo. By doing this, the majority of the people in the world will be able to see the entire picture without having to horizontal scroll.

    Anytime someone has to horizontal scroll to see an entire picture they can't really see the entire picture because as they scroll to one side on their monitor to see what's not on the screen, a portion of the picture on the opposite side of the screen is disappearing off the monitor. Therefor they can never really see the entire photo which kind of takes away from the value of the photo and usually the goal of the poster, (to show a photo, not a portion of a photo)


    Just a friendly tip...


    This is 700 pixels wide



    This is 800 pixels wide



    Both photos were resized from the original using a free software program called Easy Thumbnails which really works great to resize photos without distorting them.

    Here's a short how-to article on how to use this software to insure great results starting the first time you use it.

    Windows has an easy resize function if you right click on a picture's file, it has "Resize Picture" about the 4th item down. Two of the sizes are 680 and 800 wide. I use it all the time.
