This forum is for those photo/picture posting threads.

We'll start with one forum and move to subforums as necessary.

excellent! :D

This can also be used for critiques & advice I imagine? Or would that be more for sub-cats?

Shouldn't the member photo thread also be added to this forum?

I think XnavxeMiyyep is right, because that's the most likely place people would look for it.

Sorry, Kingsnapped, your photo should be posted in the MacRumors pics! thread (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=38844).

Speaking of which, the Photo Directory and Pics! threads should be in the same subforum, so I'll ask Powerbook G5 for an opinion.

Go for it, I am all about being organized. I am not too concerned what happens with or where the picture thread I started ends up since I didn't even expect it to last for more than a day or two. Now that this new photo gallery forum category is available, I don't see any reason not to move the thread.

Can we get a set of rules for the photography forum?

One thing I absolutely HATE seeing on other sites, and unfortunately it's already appearing here, is the obnoxious behavior of people re-editting other people's photos, and then posting them up with a "There..better" type of comment.

Fixing someone elses photos, regardless of how well it worked or did not work, without being asked by the person who posted it, is incredibly rude.

Nothing bothers me more on photography forums. Just because one person thinks they can improve a photo does not mean they should attempt to do so. It's very immature, very obnoxious, very impolite, and it's far too common on other sites. I'd like to put a stop to it here before it gets out of control - anyone agree?

Thank you! I agree. I mean if you ask "critque and fix as needed, then ok. but this thing that I see that happens all too often...I dunno I just don't know if I like it either.

I think the above should also apply to admins who think it's appropriate to resize posted photos. If I wanted to post a 400 pixel thumbnail, I would have done so. Having other people resize my pictures (which weren't that big to begin with) is bogus. Either leave them alone or delete them, but don't turn them into something I didn't present.

The thumbnails can be clicked through to show the image at full size in a new browser window. We often get complaints that people post images that are too large and take too long to load and for that reason, we act on them when reported or spotted.

So, we prefer for people to use the TIMG tag when linking to large images.

The images in question were only 800 pixels wide, that's not what I call large. Do we really have people browsing with screens that can't handle that?

So, what is the cut-off point at which you won't mess with my pictures? Can I repost at 750 pixels wide? 700? I don't want my pictures to be thumbnailed.

Thanks.

I would have thought 800 px max width would have been OK if screen width was the only thing that mattered. Some of us not me are still on dial-up so perhaps it's best to not think of what's happening to your pictures as much as what your pictures are doing to others' machines.

Anyway, as I said, any images sized down can be clicked on to show the entire picture at full size, a solution that suits most people.

800 is a bit wide for people on 1024 monitors, and there are plenty of them. There is no firm rule, but I think 600 is pretty appropriate (a bit conservative though), thumbnailed to a higher resolution if you like. That way people on small screens can fit the page without horizontal scrolling, and they can still have a little bit of Desktop space showing.

Why isn't there a firm rule? There are a half dozen or more car pictures on page 1 of the car thread bigger than 600 wide right now and quite frankly, 600 pixels seems ridiculously small in the year 2007.

The bottom line is I don't want my pictures to be thumbnailed. I would like to know what is the largest size I will be allowed to post without having my pics molested.

Thanks.

As far as I can tell, you are still downloading the entire full sized picture when this TIMG tag is used, it's just scaling it on your computer after that.

You are welcome to put a link to your videos or video site (e.g., a link to your YouTube channel) in your forum signature. It's best to avoid linking to your own sites in your forum posts since it can be considered self-promotion. The same goes for photo sites.

Yes you can put YouTube link(s) in your forum signature.

Yes you can put YouTube links in your posts but only when the video is relevant to a particular thread's discussion and would be of interest to others who are following the thread. You can also use the [youtube] tag (http://forums.macrumors.com/misc.php?do=bbcode#youtube) to embed videos in posts.

The videos can be your own or somebody's else's. The goal is to let people share what's relevant for other forum users, without allowing people to clutter the forums with self-promotional posts.
