Okay – initially file too large.

Let’s give it a go.
Humm, I think I see a problem here.
Well that’s better. Both photos appear to be right side up on my I-pad but clearly there is something amiss here. I however have no idea what’s up (or down for that matter). I do love technology. Back to the drawing board for me.
Cheers and good gaming in whatever aspect you prefer.

Tim and/or Mike:
How do you compress images stored on an I-Pad so as not to overwhelm Mike’s server? Any guidance you can offer to this pathetic Neolithic Luddite would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Cheers and good gaming – with rocks and bone shards.

BTW, your first picture is showing upside down to me on a PC. My iPhone and iPad require I orient the device a certain way that is not as obvious as, say, an actual camera.
Yes, that’s the problem I mentioned above. Usually I download photos from the I-Pad to my PC desk-top and then have to rotate some of them, but on the I-Pad they all appear correctly oriented no matter what I do with the I-Pad. It’s a real pain in the posterior.
Thanks for the tips on photo compression and I’ll see what I can do to join the 21st Century, although I may not succeed.
Cheers and good gaming.

Where are these images being saved, Mike? Have you got a terabyte sized server or service? Most people are not familiar with how to take a picture out of an iPhone which can be several megabytes in size and shrink it down to kilobytes yet keep a fairly physically large picture.
yes it is a 1TB server, but one of the trial things is to see how the space stacks up.
I can buy a bit of plug in software that compresses the files but that will involve cash, so I may have to restrict this function to Sponsors and Traders.
I will be keeping an eye on it.12/06/2017 at 18:10 #64576willzParticipant
All I do is select photo for email post (this compresses it) put that into a post folder and uploaded the photo to the forum.

How do you compress images stored on an I-Pad
On my iMac I use “Preview” which is included with Mac OS and does it very simply. It seems you don’t have it on an iPad. As William says, I heard that your Ipad can compress pics if you tell it it’s intended for email post.

To compress JPEG’s I use software called jpegmini.
The free version lets you compress 20 pictures per day. I think it is really good.

Interesting Paul, I must look into that one. Back to Mike – is there anyway you can restrict file size being posted?
yup, sort of.

Both loaded slowly – and the Carians are down as about 1.4mb. The Guard cavalry are in the 300kb range.
Rob Young15/06/2017 at 19:48 #64875
This is largely irrelevant apart from my own mental health point of view – but how did I lose this topic for a day after I posted my initial responses? I eventually posted a picture – no problems apart from the compression issue mentioned above, which I sorted out no problem -but on the Sponsor page because I couldn’t find this!
I’m going to lie down for some time.
Oh- great job Mike. Well done!15/06/2017 at 19:54 #6487615/06/2017 at 21:57 #64883GreystreakParticipant

I’ll get you for that!
Thanks – seriously, I was beginning to wonder how old I was for while there.15/06/2017 at 22:55 #64887
The brief was to see if images could be uploaded – so naturally included a large image as one of my ‘tests’.
Having said that, on my blog I usually aim for between 300 and 800 kb.
Rob Young16/06/2017 at 00:31 #64895OBParticipant
Seemingly so, on my fifth attempt. Wonder what I did right? Great stuff.

This is from an iPad.
I have resized the photo to 500 pixels wide using an app called IMAGE SIZE. Next I will rezize down to 250 wide.
The image is uploaded directly from the iPad itself, not a 3rd party server.

This is the same image squeezed down to 250 pixels wide.28/06/2017 at 06:21 #65871
This is 7oo pixels wide. I have a paid for website that allow s me to upload images that are 700 pixels and below. It resizes automatically to prevent breach.
If I download this image back, it reads as having a file size of 32kb (that surprises me).28/06/2017 at 08:42 #6588028/06/2017 at 14:06 #65895Mike HeaddenParticipant
With photobucket becoming increasingly annoying it’s nice to have this facility.
Being used to Pendraken’s Forum where images need to me 128Kb or less if linked directly I use The GIMP to resize regularly.
