Questions about pictures? Read this!

This thread will explain everything you need to know about pictures, quoting, signatures and icons.

Hosting/Converting Images

There are two options to host your images:

1. Attach them to the post, by using the attach feature at the bottom. Please make sure that it is an acceptable file before you post.

2. Host them with a picture hosting provider (e.g. Host Then Post, ImageShack)

If you're having trouble with formatting or size of your images, you should use an image editor or converter to make your photos web-appropriate. There are plenty of free image converters online, just Google them!

There are no technical size limits for pictures, but please keep in mind that not everyone has a fast internet connection.

Quoting Images

This should be avoided at all costs. Quoting images can put a drain on thread loading times, and may also have your response ignored. Just remove the image tags
Code: [Select]
[img][/img] and then continue on with your posting.

Constant image quoting may be grounds for discipline, if it becomes inconvenient or bothersome to other users.

Signatures

There are no technical size limits on signatures, but please try to keep signatures within a reasonable size.

Content of the signature must comply with the terms of the forum's Code of Conduct.

Icons

While our forum software will automatically resize icons, please keep your icons within a reasonable size. Keeping it under 100KB should do the trick.

Content of the icon must comply with the terms of the forum's Code of Conduct.
