Topic: turbo beast pictures (7 msgs / 117 lines)
1) From: petzul
With my lovely wife's help I now have about 15 pictures of the infamous 
Turbo Beast galloping gourmet bread machine coffee roaster.
I have it empty, with 1 lb in it, one pound stirring, 2 lbs in it, and 2 
pounds stirring. If I had a faster camera I would take one blowing the 
chaff out of it with the hair dryer.
Now THAT is really something to see!
Please help me post them?
Each of them is about 576 KB
Still confused by the web site concept, here in LHC.

You could check outhttp://photobucket.com/for free photo & album hosting.
I'm not sure what options they have to resize photos, but images
around 6-800 pixels long and wide and compressed to around 80-100KB
seem a reasonable compromise.

Hi Gary,
Thank you for the reply.
Looks like I need to get my pics below 500 K even to post them on the SM 
Have you looked at it lately? Such wonderful coffee roasting equipment!
There seems to be no lack of imagination here :)

It doesn't look like they offer any image resizing tools so I think 
Peter will need some software to do this on his local computer. As for 
formats and sizes, low to medium quality jpegs are usually fine for web 
use and a size of approximately 300 x 600 pixels, which fits nicely on 
a web page on most monitors, should easily compress to 25-50K or even 
smaller. There's no point in making them higher resolution than they 
need to be since the differences won't be visible on-screen anyway. 
Just keep trying them at lower quality until you can actually notice a 
significant difference in the displayed image.
