Man, I clicked on Borica's post about the deer and the photos were freakin huge and eating up my broadband limit.

Most of us can only view 640x480 on the computer and once your huge photos load they get resized unless you click on them.

Maybe some folks want you HUGE photos to save to their computers, but please warn us in the title.

Not everyone lives in the big city where we have unlimited internet for pennies a month. LOL!

I try to keep em 1024X768 max or better yet 800X600, especially for multiples.

Good to remind folks about all the mobile browsers which take a long time to load. :thumb:

Some of us country folk don't have many options, and fast, unlimited internet cost 4 times what it cost when I lived in a small city. LOL!

Not to mention the smartphones.
That's nuts. The US certainly has a lot of catching up to do compared to some other countries. In the meantime, I'll try and re-size my pics correctly. :thumb:

actually....that IS NOT nuts.

cost to lay those new cables is expensive, very expensive.

Some small towns are a long way away from bigger cities.
AND THEN there are those of us that live out a good bit away from these smaller towns too.

Running "the good stuff" miles and miles and miles down a single road in order to possible pick up a few customers just is not cost effective to the providers.
Now....IF the govt ran these utilities, ALL OF US would have them, but they would cost everyone 3 times as much!

Shoot, in my case the phone company would lay the cable to my home, but they would not pay to dig the trench. So, 3500 bucks stayed in my pocket.
And that was FOR ANY CABLE as the newly built 5 years ago and no utilities existed there before. Now why the builder did not lay Phone Cable with the Electric you ask----Well, he was a Honcho with Verizon so he had a Cell Tower built 4 miles away in direct line of sight. Seriously!:eek:

Hey, all a guy really needs is:
SEPTIC
POWER
Satellite
Three Car Garage to house his motorbikes;)

So, we make do, but huge files just lock up the computer, unless I am sitting in the library, or McDonalds :yeahsmile:

In a couple of weeks I am giving up my smartphone and all the glory that it brings. Going back to a stupidphone and saving over $100 a month. Just have to take the tab' or laptop to libraries, McDonalds, Starbucks.......local coffee shops with $4.00 muffins! Where I live way up on a mountain and back in the woods the only internet other than phone is with the cable TV company.....at over $100 a month! I'm a musician and work a lot with online forums, Bandcamp and SoundCloud so this is going to be a difficult downsize for me.

Seriously, maybe the forum powers that be could add a small indication with the photos that say what size they are. Or maybe some kind of feature that resizes down the large photos to a set standard size.

In my case there is actually cable across the street. It is the end of the line. I called the cable company and they sent a guy out who said they can only run cable 300 feet and have to follow the electric lines. Bummer.

"Please let us know if you are posting huge pics!"

How do you suggest letting you know?
I think it's more for people posting topics with a large number of pictures i.e. a trip thread or photo DIY repair thread. A simple warning in the thread can help people avoid that I guess, although they do miss out on the content.

Best solution is to have reasonably re-sized pictures.

It is not necessarilly the number of photos, it is the size. Most photos 640x480 can be seen well on a computer screen and aren't huge. The modern digital cameras with the 16MP images are way bigger than anyone needs unless you are printing posters or cropping parts of the photo out.

SEEYA, just put a warning in the title. Then I will click on the thread when I am at a public wifi spot.

i am a cable repair for a phone company in Canada and the solution is simple Fiber Optic cable , its not that expansive and its lightning fast but it take time to install that technology but it will get there here in canada they know that if they don't do it the cable company will do it , so its a big project worth the while

That's the problem with low population density country like Canada or USA, it's quite expensive to install those infrastructure form one end of the country to the other

Unlike Europe form instance, where the pop. density is very high, not to mention Asia where it sky high, the cost are less

Have backyard space, have to pay for it !!!

How about when we copy the image code to embed a picture?

Sample:
