    Here are the basics steps.

    1. Left click on Post Reply,
    2. Type a message or short note in the "Your Reply" area,
    3. Below the "Smileys" on the left going down the page you will see the area: "Attach file: to the right of that there will be a "Browse..." button, left click the button 1 time.

    Now you will have a file from your hard drive open up.

    4. Find the file/picture on your hard drive you want to post on LawnSite.
    5. Double click or left click to select the file/picture, then hit the enter key.
    6. You can then check your spelling or Submit your Reply.
    If you picture is within the parameters of LawnSite.com 800 x 600, your picture will be posted, if not you will get a message that your picture is too large.

    If you get the message that your picture is too large you will have to resize the image. You must have a software program that allows you to edit/manipulate images.

    Resizing photo for posting

    If you need to resize your photo to 800 x 600 for posting on this site, you can download and use a free image viewing program. www.Irfanview.com

    In Irfanview, click on File, then click on Open, to find your photo and open it.

    Click on Edit, then click on Resize/Resample.

    Choose 800 x 600 from the column on the right.

    Click okay. Your photo will be resized to 800 x 600.

    Click on File, then click on Save (or Save as).


    I'm no techie, but I know I could have used this kind of info a couple of years ago (before I got into digital photography).

    Hope this helps.

    Nailit1954,

    I don't what software program you used to resize your photo to 800 x 600, so I'm guessing a bit here.

    It could be that the software program is faulty and your "800 x 600" photo dimensions are actually slightly larger, say 808 x 606. If so, this site's computer will reject your photo for posting. Try cutting your photo's size in half (use 400 x 300 as dimensions) and see if it can be posted.

    I think this site's 800 x 600 posting size limit assumes a resolution of 72 pixels per inch (ppi, or sometimes dpi on settings). If you have a resolution higher than 72, the total size of your 800 x 600 image may be too large. In the software program you use to reduce your photo's size, be sure to select 72 ppi resolution.


    It may help to think of photo size in terms of volume.
    Think of the 800 x 600 as the length and width. The resolution, or ppi/dpi is comparable to the depth. Multiplying these three factors (length x width x depth) will give you the photo's size/volume.

    I hope to see your photo posted soon.

    Nailit1954,

    When I opened your attachment, it was smaller than a postage stamp. Although this site says bmp is a valid file extension, it could be that you're better off using jpg. Or it could just be my computer that displays your photo that small.

    Jpg and Gif are the two standard file formats to use when saving photos for posting on the web.

    Bmp is more for graphics that you want to include in your computer's systems resources.

    Try saving your photo as a jpg and reposting it on this site.

    If your software is lousy, try downloading Irfanview. It is widely regarded as excellent software.
