Janel Posted July 7, 2008 Report Share Posted July 7, 2008 Hi all, Just in case you had not noticed, I have pinned a reminder at the top of each forum area, in hopes that new members and seasoned members will be reminded to process or edit their photos to follow the guidelines recommended by The Carving Path forum. Doing this by each of you wonderful folks who share their photos with us will be a friendly thing to do for the members who suffer with slow, land line, modems. One unfortunate member of the soda straw connection club is myself, so I feel it every time a huge file is attached to a post. Thus, I am motivated to spread the word every time someone posts a photo with a high file size or large pixel dimension which pushes the browser wide open and takes forever to load. One post in the past month or two took half an hour to load the first time. Each time I revisited that page it took that kind of time again. So to save myself time, I either avoid the page, not a first choice, or I edit the photos to fit within or near the guidelines. I also write to the member who might not have been aware of the guidelines and try to encourage them to learn how to do the edits. This morning, I was hoping to upload eight photos, and was bogged down by the first one, which was only 60 k. It never went, likely the line condition and perhaps my neighbors on the same line were burning up the phone line at that time. So, I went to town and am using a coffee cafe WiFi connection to do this work. I could not believe it how fast those eight photos loaded. Truly in a blink or two of my eyes. Such technology so possible to achieve nearby, but not possible where I live! I believe that the city would need to be transported to the country near me to make the phone company upgrade the line. Cable is not available where I live, and I fear the trees and the valley rim make satellite impossible, though I am exploring that potential. I know that doing the photo edits makes work for each of you. With the digital image age, we all must learn to use its potential in our lives and adapt our digital images to suit the needs and end uses when we want to share images with others. The Photography topic area has some pointers. If anyone knows of newer freeware for folks to down load, please make a note of it up there in the Photo area. Thanks to you all for your help with keeping this forum a friendly and helpful place for everyone. Kindest regards, Janel Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
