I would bet all the major cloud based photo sharing applications have this functionality. The important aspect is to get the URL that has the jpg or gif extension so it displays using the BB markup codes used by Baja Nomad. I don't know if the png extension works here.

the worst is that with my old computer, there was a program that allowed one to automatically chenge the photo setting on the screen, then save both versions and then I would load onto bajanomad. I can't remember the name of the program and when the computer crashed -all was gone gone gone. It was absolutely brilliant.

I have made separate albums for various subjects on photobucket, and even those albums have sub-albums. Like Maps, then 1757 maps, Gonzaga maps, etc. Just remeber to EDIT when you add a photo and RESIZE, entering 640 or 800 in the width box, click save (and the replace oiginal check box).

Now that we have settled that ...


How do you post an attachment? FAQ say you can do it but no instructions how.

An example please? What is the attachment? If I can't help, I am sure Doug can.


Edit: I just went to FAQ to review what you saw there... that is for posting (attaching) a photo on Nomad using the Browse button and those need to be under 50kb in file size... and just one per post.

David...
I just upgrade the newer PhotoBucket....it actually MAY be much easier to use for the BN purposes here. Will do another IMAGE walk through....and have it here next week.

.....but I still liked the old version :-)

So, the 'how to' from me, and images that McFez gave us are out-dated. Like other new things, I am not liking the additional effort to make a photo fit on Nomad... but maybe they will bring back the 'Upload Options' feature?

Now, once again: Nomad web page frame is 800 pixels wide. If you don't resize, the standard width is just over 1000 pixels, and you will need to scroll off to the right to see the whole photo, or shrink the size of Nomad and squint!

HOW TO RESIZE PHOTOBUCKET PHOTOS FOR BAJA NOMAD WIDTH:

1) Place your mouse arrow on the thumbnail photo in your Photobucket Album, a gear symbol will appear in the photo thumbnail to edit (or select edit for the photo if already there).

2) Click EDIT and let photo load on the page that appears.

3) Above photo, click RESIZE button (above photo).

4) Width and height values are shown with a padlock between them. The padlock is there to insure you don't distort the photo when you change one of the values (it 'locks' the width to height ration to remain correct).

5) If the photo is over 800 in width, replace the figure with 800, 640, or other smaller size. No need to change the height figure, it changes automatically. Photos that are already smaller can be made bigger, as well. The quality may be reduced when enlarging, but not when shrinking.

6) Click Apply and Save (if you check the small box provided you can replace the original, over-size photo with the Nomad-friendly photo, otherwise you will have both sizes in your Photobucket album).

====================================================

If I find that there is a Upload Options (so all photos will re-size when uploading from your PC) or if Photobucket adds it, I will share it. Until then, new photos added to your album will need to be individually edited if they are over 800 pixels in width.

McFez is good at posting the appearance of the page, hope he can show you!




Old people are like the old cars, made of some tough stuff. May show a little rust, but good as gold on the inside.

For those that permanently keep their photos on photobucket, permanently saving the photo resized to a lower resolution may reduce image sharpness and color rendition. You may want to keep a back-up at home for when the majority of internet users catches up with the capabilities of our cameras or you have another use for your photos. Notice I said may, since the reduction in clarity will be dependent on many factors.

Yes. The rule is - never discard the original file that came directly from the camera.

All improvements or modifications should start with that file.

Photobucket (for me) is only for sharing photos and maps on Internet forums. They are uploaded from my PC, where the originals are and remain unaltered.

What backup do you have for the original files on your PC? Disks, cloud, portable hard drives? At around $100-$150 for 1T portable hard drives are cheap.

Customize Upload Options has returned as a feature on Photobucket! I just noticed it today, not sure when it was added... but great. Just click Upload at the top of the Photobucket page, and on the top right of the big drag and drop white box, click: Customize Upload Options

All photos will go to the album sized to fit on Nomad without further editing.

Pick 640 for most photos giving them a large appearance here on Nomad, pick 800 for the maximum, full screen size... if you use a bigger size than 800, not all the photo will be visible, and any text in the entire thread page will be run off the screen requiring sideways scrolling... unless you have oversize monitors or shrink the viewing size.
