Not sure if this is the correct place to ask this  :)

I want to post a few photographs I have taken , but when I post them and press preview the photograph looks way to large . Are images posted automatically resized to fit , or do I need to re size the photographs my self before posting them .



Thanks

Ken

Photos can't be larger than 450KB and total photos can not exceed 900KB. I resize mine down to between 300 - 400KB

Hi Ken

There is an alternative method which is perhaps easier and also does not limit the dimensions or number of images. It is to use ibb.com (https://imgbb.com/). This is a photo-hosting website and makes posting images simple -

1. Go to imgbb.com. You can create your own account, or use the shared account created for K-F members. The username is korat-farang and the password is nakhon. REMEMBER, this is a shared account. Do not upload any valuable or important pictures; create your own account if you have important pictures. The process is identical:

2. Select 'Upload'. You have various upload options (drag, paste, select from computer, url). Chose your image/ images and upload.

3. Once the image/s is uploaded, hover over the image (or click on the image, or choose 'select all' for multiple images) and look for the 'Embed codes' button. Choose HTML Image.

Untitled-design-1" border="0
Untitled-design-4" border="0
Back in K-F, create a post/ reply. Paste the code directly into the reply; it will be a chevron with 'img' and a code string.

4. To center the image, highlight the code string and use 'centered' button.

5. Use the Preview button to check the post is how you want it, and click Post.

It is more complicated to explain than to use! I have not tested it using a mobile phone yet: I assume it is possible, but I am not sure if ibb has an App to make it easier.

There may be other methods: if anyone has other options please let us know.

Many thanks for the information , I'm going to give it a try and will post back
