    Poll: How Do You Prefer Pictures Displayed In MC Threads?

    As you may have noticed, I like to have pictures in some of my posts and threads, and as I have indicated in another thread, I am still very much on the learning curve when it comes to all aspects of photography.

    My current method is to place the pictures in the posts themselves. But I notice that others provide thumbnails to be clicked on, while others provide a link of some sort to a photo album or slide show on the photo hosting website.

    I know that big pictures in the posts themselves (like what I've done in the past) can be annoying and slow to load for those that still have dial-up connections especially.

    Please let me know...and I'll do my best to figure out how to best accomodate you guys! Thanks!
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    Depends on the size of the pic. If it's over 800x600 then I use thumbnail.

    Imageshack is the picture host that makes thumbnails for you when you upload something. I don't think Photobucket and the rest will.

    I just like to see the pictures, don't care how! That said, if Darkbeer were to start posting his pictures in the message itself.......

    I like the pictures in the posts as long as they are sized properly...or not making me scroll to much. I never click on thumbnails or links....my bad...

    Pictures in posts. As others have said, if sized properly. But then if they are going to be in the posts, they should be sized properly, if not, maybe because making the photo small enough for a post would not look as good, then scale it down and provide a link to the original.

    But I really, really like pictures in posts. Sometimes some photos (like those CL did of the fireworks) if you scroll through them quickly, you can see movement, really a neat effect.

    Keep the photos in posts (maybe 800x600 max)

    Just MHO, YMMV

    I use Phtobucket and reduce the size of my photos to 640X. This way it is easier to see and loads faster.

    Pictures in posts. Though I can understand why some sites will only allow thumbnails. The loading time factor for those on dial up can not be pleasant and it takes up more bandwidth. I use photobucket myself, but, often I resize the photo or graphic prior to uploading it.

    Even if pictures are large, I prefer to have them in posts because it won't take as many clicks to get to a full-sized image. It's important to minimize the amount of effort exerted by the end user.
    Woof!

    I prefer pictures in the posts also. This way you can also add comments along with the picture (especially with meet pictures, everybody always wants to know who the pictures are of). I usually edit mine to 50-75% of the original size once they are in Photobucket (depending on how many I'm going to post), that way they end up a reasonable size and you don't have to scroll sideways.

    Photos in posts....more work for the poster, but easier to scroll through and enjoy for the reader.

    Cool Re: Poll: How Do You Prefer Pictures Displayed In MC Threads?

    I prefer seeing pictures in the posts. Don't care for the extra step of clicking on a thumb nail or link or whatever. Just give me the photo please.

    Pictures in posts. As long as I don't have to scroll to see the whole picture.
