One of the advantages of having your photos hosted off-site, at AirPhotos or on a web server (like photo bucket or ???) is that you can insert photos between text as discussed in this old post.

Reverse that would be great I think that's the best place to post pics as that helps illustrate what you are talking about in a specific thread. The "Show and Tell."

I hadn't thought of that (mainly because I didn't know what my limit was), but it's helpful to know.

That's definitely the best part of hosting them off-site!

I would suggest to use the airforums photo gallery over another site.

The problem is these free hosting services come and go all the time. If the thread photos are hosted there, and someone is researching something six months later... they will get a little red X instead of the answer to their most desperate AS problem.

Keep the images here where there is control. Perhaps this is good enough reason to raise the limit. I undertand the reason is to help gently urge people to be supporting members, but I'd hate to see the informative forum filled with red X's....

are these limits CLEARLY posted somewhere?

i have NO photos is the gallery section, perferring to include/attach them to posts.

i've noticed the size for attachments has gradually increased from 600x600 and 100kb...

to 1000x1000 and 300kb

and now to 1600x1600 and 1mb.

that's great.

but these attachments still show up small IN the thread unless opened in a new window right?

LIMITS

i've got 650 attachments totaling 76 mb, is this total unlimited because of contributing member status?

IF i drop c/m status will these attachments disappear?

i'm happy with the 30 minute limit of post editing, so removing attachments months/years later is part of that....

we've had members remove dozens/hundreds of photos that were inside threads, which really really sucked AND hurt the thread...

sort of 'if i can't be the boss, i'm takin the ball home' mentality....

but i've got another 100 or so pics include in upcoming posts...

and don't want to hit some limit.

one advantage of the 'attachment' approach is the 'download count' on attachments...

i've got some with well over 1000 downloads (whatever that means) which is pretty cool.

it seems to me most of the a/s related photos do add significantly to the forums...

but including REALLY REALLY large photos IN a thread (like some have done on the monthly contests) might be excessive.

cheers

Okay, so here is a clarification for you all....

If you are a regular AirForums member, you get 5MB worth of photo space to upload into posts/threads - no matter what. If you are a gold rivet "Supporting Member" there is no limit to the number of photos you can upload into posts/threads.

When you sign up as a supporting member, it is for one year...if you choose not to re-contribute after the year lapses, your photos don't get stripped out even if you are over 5MB - you just won't be able to add any more to new posts/threads. If you re-contribute as a supporting member for another year, then your photo posting ability is unlimited again ~

So the bottomline is posting unlimited photos in threads is a privledge gained by being a supporting member...otherwise, the limit is 5MB.

As mentioned earlier, your photo gallery (100MB) or another hosting website is another option to allow you to post photos without contributing...

Hope this helps ~

Shari

This is the clarification I was looking for! The large majority of my attached photographs were at the request of other members, and if I had known about the 5 MB limit on attachments, I suppose I wouldn't have squandered it away so carelessly. I've had a Photobucket account for about a year now for sharing family pictures. I guess I'll need to refamiliarize myself with it... if I can remember my password.

Guilty as charged, for the monthly photo contest. It strikes me as the one thread that justifies large photos. It is a photo contest.

Hi Doorgunner,

I went to my photos and copied the address at the top of my browser while looking at the photo I wanted to include. (It is that line at the top that starts with “http://”. Copy (Control C Windows, Command {Apple} C Mac} the entire line.) In this case it is the higher res version. Then I pasted it into the body of the message.

http://airforums.com/photos/showimag...899&original=1

Then I am linked without another upload.

Ok, I will become a supporting member soon.

Vaughan

That sure would be nice. I'm not gonna go through 433 photos and move them. Way too much effort.

I guess I don't understand why the server is big enough to hold 100Mb in the photo albums, but can't hold more than 5Mb for the thread attachments. Are they different servers?

Photos, Forum Web Space, and Account Upgrades...

3 points regarding this issue:
  1. Photos are an integral component of sharing Airstream knowledge.
2. When it comes down to a spacial web crunch, the administrators should also take a look at how much the word association games take up in our web space (yes, I know that photos take up a lot more space than words & these games help members "feel a part of the community".

3. For those of you who post photos or spend a significant part of your daily web browsing time here, don’t you think it would be appropriate for you to upgrade your membership? The minimum donation is only $20/yr.! If you spend only 1 hr./wk., the cost to show your support is less than $0.38 per week. (BTW, you don’t need to sign up for Pay Pal in advance to do this… it is just part of the one time payment process when upgrading).

I wasn't concerned about this yet as I've kept an eye on the upload status bar where you do attachments. Last look I'd used up about a third of my space according to that indicator.

Just checked to be sure and it's now showing all red - or NO space left - how'd that happen...??????
