Forum max size of photo's using Photobucket..


Maybe I'm lost.. But I use photobucket..

I always thought the photo stays over there, and I am just posting a link?( hosting ) Although , the photo will show here..Saving the forum owner the bandwidth, and we get to post better quality photos..

If so, then the "size" of the file is small? correct? Or does it drag the full file to the link? 

 

Like if I upload a 3 meg photo.. What is the size of the link on the forum? 

 

Thanks.

I'm pretty sure the photo is archived in Photobucket and all you are really doing is "Linking" the URL to somewhere else.

Here is an experiment with a 2MB photo forced to 1024 wide (the linked photo is about 3300 wide):

Quilt

This is a quilt my wife made.

What I did was change the image size in the "Insert/Edit Image" to be 1024 wide and then used a calculator to scale the height the same amount.  Here is a panorama from Grand Canyon that was 8140x1982 but I set the dimensions to 1024x249:

This one is 2.84MB.  I can't seem to find ones over 3MB to demonstrate on my website.

To see the original, just select the photo in your browser and right click to get a menu to open in a new window.  You might have to click the new photo to get it full sized.

 Is that 2.84 mb on this site? or on photobucket? 

If on photobucket.. what is the "link size" here? 

 

thanks

It is 2.84MB on the website, which is not Photobucket. I don't think there is any space taken on the forum since it is just a link. I suspect whom ever reads the post downloads the entire 2.84MB.

I see.. So it would be better to resize, uploading to photobucket.... or just post the link only. and they can decide to download or not..I get it.

Thanks !

Yes is is better to re-size first. You can find free online software to do this. Here is a link to a free one: www.faststone.org/FSResizerDetail.htm
I use professional however this is non necessary.
Pay attention to not only the physical size but also to the dpi. (dots per inch) You do not need 300 dpi for a computer screen, 72 dpi is just fine and 800 wide by default height for a landscape photo are just fine. You can see examples of this in the Pic of your rig thread on this forum.
Let me know if this is not clear.

Thanks.. for me .. I know how to resize.. but the info will be helpful for many..

I just never found a need to resize.. always thought photobucket just hosted it, and not much on the website..

I guess if I resize to small.. I'll just post direct here.. no need for photobucket..

Nope, they don't have the photo hosting enabled. Looks like you have to host your own photos.

I use Photobucket to upload my pictures.

Then just link them to the forum using the little icon above with the "Tree" in it.
