How To: Upload Pics Without Resizing
We have all seen the questions about uploading pics to this site and how to do it. Or someone can't upload because they get an error message and the error message generally means your pic is too big.
This thread will help those that get the error message.
To make your life simple when uploading pics to this site set you camera's Image Mode to PC or pick a resolution of 1280 x 1024. This setting will take all your pics at the right file size and resolution which will allow all your N scale pics to upload without error messages or having to resize. However, some cameras have an Image Mode which only shows the resolution and to check to see if the one you choose is going to work take a test pic, save it to your computer and using Windows Explorer check the size of the file.
If you don't want to change your camera's image setting for what ever reason you will need to resize your pics so that they are a maximum of 244k in size with a resolution/dimension maximum of 1280 x 1024.
I will refine this a bit later.
