Topic tags/keywords: posting photos uploading posting new projects

When I want to post a new project I have to Upload the photos from my Computer (I already have most of my photos on the Internet in FLICKR ), apart from being slow there is a limit on photo size which mine seem to exceed.
Any suggestions please Buddies?

PS when posting a new project does it have to be completed in one session or can I go back to edit it?

I’m not much help on the photo question. There are some photo management programs that will re-size photos for you that should get them down to the right size – maybe Picasa?

You can go back to edit a project later.

Maclengno, Yes you can go back and edit the original post. Oops, I see you already have the answer. I always open my pics in microsoft paint, click on image, resize, then change from 100% to 99% then the pics are small enough for LJ’s

I second GMan’s solution. Photobucket is real easy to use, but I would suggest you use their bulk uploader to upload your photos even if only one. Your computers photo files are displayed in a better way for you to select which photos you want uploaded. The bulk uploader is just an option to click on. Good luck!

You do not have to upload photos, to the web, if you are going to use them for posting a project. They can be uploaded directly from your computer’s hard drive. Unfortunately, large pictures can take a long time. Here is a web site that has a FREE picture re-sizer program. It is very easy to use and will reduce the size (Mega Bytes) of a picture so it will upload much faster.

The program is called PIXresizer and it’s about half way down the list on the web page.
