  • Correct size pictures

    I'm not such a "techy tech guy" and just discovered my pictures are way too big. Currently I'm busy resizing the images in my database and want to change the oversized pictures I posted on diecast garage but I miss the "edit" button on most of my posts.

    In the garage I already saw some pictures were "taken out" by admin but how could I alter these posts and upload the correct size pictures there.

    For example https://www.diecastgarage.org/node/5...3227#post93227 was too big, couldn't edit so I created https://www.diecastgarage.org/node/5...421#post111421

    In https://www.diecastgarage.org/node/5...8201#post88201 the oversized picture is still visible but I'm not able to swop the picture for a smaller one.

    Just trying to keep the diecast garage tidy, please help me, thanks, Frans.

    There is a timer on the edit feature. I think it's pretty generous but it times out after a few days.

    As it says in my signature line, we were consistently running over bandwidth for a few months. vB was gracious enough to let me try to get the usage down, and that is why the larger images were removed. I'm sorry, it couldn't be helped.

    As I find them, I delete the leftovers from the removed images, but I deleted well over a thousand of them. So there is plenty yet to be edited out. There's no way at this time for non-staff members to edit older threads, so I would suggest posting the new image in a new post. Other than hand-holding for a thousand posts, I don't see another way, and none more practical given the circumstances.

    Thanks for letting me know.
    The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

    Thank you for your understanding.

      Thanks for your explanation Wes, sorry I'm reaction to this size situation soo late. I will try to alter what I can alter and will re-post the rest. Is there a possibility that when I collect the posts where the pictures were deleted or are too big but can't be edited anymore in order for them to be deleted. I don't want to overload our administrators but if I, let's say, once a week give you a number of posts, you , or any other administrator, deletes the obsolete posts. I'm just brainstorming here, trying to keep the garage clean.

      Greeting, Frans.

      b.t.w. after resizing my pictures they are 956x956 and round about 200kb each, that would be OK wouldn't it

        I've been using this site to resize and compress my pics. 75% compression rate doesn't seem to affect the image quality but the file size will be under 100kb.
