I was wonderng why it could be feasible to transfer pictures from the show off your pens forum to the albums.
I can understand why it wouldn't work from album to the forum because of size, but it would be convenient to post once and transfer if you chose to.

Eagle, I know that if you post it to your album first, you can post the URL for the photo in the forum message. Is that what you mean by only posting it once?

At present, there are two separate databases. Not being a programmer, I have no idea what the effort would be in this type of endeavor. I do know, however, that Jeff has a lot on his plate. He has a backlog of a couple of months worth of improvements, additions and upgrades. We won't lose this suggestion, but I don't see it happening anytime soon.

If you do as Chuck mentioned you can also place the URL between IMG and /IMG in brackets and it will display.
For example this is the URL copied from my photo album and pasted here using the IMG commands

Dale and Chuck point out an excellent method. The actual photo is in the album, and the post just references it. Guys, tell the good people how you did it. [:)] (The only trick is getting the URL to the photo, and that's not hard.)

A picture is worth a thousand words... Thanks for the example, Dale.

Eagle, if you right-click on the image and select 'Properties', you will get the URL you need to put between the IMG and /IMG tags... in Dale's case, it is 'http://www.penturners.org/oldalbums/daledut/Cocobolo-black-chrome-800.jpg'

There is one problem with that suggestion. People tend to put "BIG" photos in the gallery and if you then display them as images, they stretch out the thread and make it hard to read. You have to do a lot of left/right scrolling to view the pictures and read the text. If people would keep their pictures to about 650 pixels wide, it would not be a problem; but I think most people don't realize how the problem is created or how to avoid it.

Some boards have software that automatically limits picture sizes and others have rules that are voluntarily adhered to. Guess IAP isn't quite there yet??

If I understand your last remark those rules are already in effect.
For some reason you can post a picture up to 150 kbps( think that's it)in your album and 90 on a forum.
I'll give the other meatod a try.
Time to edit my album anyway.

Of course, I can automatically resize uploaded pictures and I wrote a script to iterate throught the entire album and resize photos. I hate to do that however, because while I can set some quality parameters and let the server do the job, it's not a substitute for the owner of the photo working with his own image software. So, we're certainly "there" in the ability to automatically resize, we're just trying to be nice.

We're at the point, though, where asking nicely does not work. I'll soon be adding resize-on-upload and I'll run through the albums and resize everything to 700px wide max.

Jeff does that mean I won't have to resize my pictures before they are accepted?
I'm getting the hang of resizing them but I still run into a snag every once in a while.
Thanks.
