    Another quick video showing how to resize images, and post them on the upgraded software

    I will be imposing stricter image controls after the upgrade so no 3000x2000 images please :))

    The limit is set on 1024kb which is more that large enough, please try and use a maximum size of 1024px x 768px

    does this mean that I can no longer resize in Picasa and import as i do now or will I have to re-educate myself?

    Picasa is just fine (i use it myself) as is any other similar application. The resizing bit is aimed at those who post mega images  :)) and to show how simple it is.

    I normally resize to 800x600, 640x480 can be a bit small.

    thanks Cynric, watched the video after my posting and that seemed to put my mind at rest.

    Slightly off topic, but would I be right in thinking that You tube type vids will take up little or no space as they are hosted elsewhere ?

    no space as it is just embedded, not saved into the site

    Still on the subject of videos, can I embed a video like any other file on here?
    And if so, how do I compress it? - I have a video to share but it's 38.9Mb and straight off my camera . . .

    Hi Guv'nor
    Thanks for letting us in on the secret of how to re-size images and just to prove I have been successful here is an image of my first tank wagon I made from a Slaters kit. I have to admit I got as far as constructing and priming the tank, making the underframes and stalling at finishing with the strapping and transferring . The credit for this goes to Rob Helson who also did some fantastic weathering too.....
    Kind regards

    Guidance please. How do I put a video on here? I've got some phone footage of three 37s pulling 40 16 tonners up Aberbeeg; it might bring a smile in certain parts of the school room! The video is a bulky 172Mb.

    I find putting video's on You tube then sharing the link works well.

    Yes, host your video on YouTube or similar, then click the film strip symbol on your WT reply box & embed the URL from your YouTube video :)

    Thank you Phil, I'll have a go after I have reassembled some of Aberbeeg back into the shed. At the moment it looks like a bomb has gone off after the return from the Leeds show.
