View Full Version : Picture Sizing

Folks

Please could you keep an eye on picture sizing when you post images to CU threads. Sometimes a picture is too large to fit within the boundaries of a standard CU thread width, and when posted, throw the formatting of the rest of the thread off, forcing every post subsequent to the oversize to match its frame width to that of the oversize, such that the reader must scroll left and right to read lines of text.

We've all seen it. It's bloody annoying at times.

At my request, Policon will now demonstrate:

Yep, aaaaaaaaannoying, isn't it. As diddlyf**k.

I'm sure I've even posted oversize myself, occasionally. It's more annoying on some browsers than others, but the effect is the same across the board.

All major image hosting providers such as Photobucket provide resizing options to get sizing right. Pbuckt also have recommendation sizes for forum and email image sizing.

Even Microsoft offers some rudimentary resizing options that should work normally, hopefully without blue-screening your PC.

There are other freeware options, such as irfanview (hat tip Sonna) that will do a more specific job.

Little feller, you shall do as you are told. :p

No part of Megan and her many lovely appendages may occupy more than the width of a standard CU screen, no exceptions.

So let it be written. So let it be done. Or deleted. :D

OK, we probably won't be deleting pics for this, but just be considerate to your fellow CUers, that's all we're asking.

Poli, go and post a really big Megan pic, so folks can see how f'ing annoying it is (the scrolling, not the Megan).

Excellent. Well done, thx, it's only nearly double the permitted width. :rolleyes: Now, see what I mean .................................................. .................................................. .... .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .......about annoying.

I also shouldn't have to scroll across to look at that ass. Having to do that in itself was an annoyance. It really got in the way of what should have been a really good experience.

Even on a Mac, that was f'ing irritating. :mad:

Please don't do that again. Art, man, art, come on. Get with the f'ing program.

Kerb your enthusiasm, folks. You'll get the intent of your image across yay better if all of it fits on one screen. :D

You do know that if you click down on wheel in your mouse - scrolling is rather easily accomplished . . . . just saying :p

hampshirebrit
08-30-2010, 04:14 PM
Yeah, but why should I have to.

Actually, a wheel, on a mouse? What a strange concept. One has a magicmouse nowadays for the mini, and the MB trackpad,
so no more moving parts for hamps, it's all glass surface control in the wonderful world of MACckery\@hampsland.

Even on a mac, it's still at least a mild irritant, and it does get in the way of the user experience. I'd hate to have to use a peecee to get
similar results, using an operating system that has already been designed to annoy the living crap out of the end user.

I'm trying to be nice here, to everyone, even the underclass of CU, the PeeCee user. Please, help me out, will ya. :p

I don't know... do you honestly think I have the time to keep track of these metrics?

Just nobody do it. No penalty if you do forget now and then, just don't be a dick about it.

Don't no-one even think of "weaponizing" it to try to win a thread point, because we will come down on that sort of bs, hard.

So deleting entire psots isn't considered a "Penalty" ?

Yep, it would be good to be able to do that, but one rarely gets everything one wants, not all at once. I've learned to improvise with what I have.

That should be "Too", by the way.

A toast to Hamps:

I have a wide screen monitor, and I hate those big
pictures. I agree it is very annoying. Especially when
I go to the trouble of scrolling over only to find some
boney assed wench's butt in underwear that are two
sizes too small for her.

I'll Give benefit of the doubt the question isn't being ignored and it was overlooked.

Not quite sure what you're asking here... perhaps you could clarify.

No penalty for forgetting and posting an occasional big pic . The entire post gets deleted. Deleting of an entire post not to be considered a penalty.

Is this related to a specific instance? If so, could you please PM myself or any other mod with the details.
