Now having said that, there are people who don't know how to properly
size a pic for the internet (pixel
dimension and resolution), I can get a 350px wide jpg down to about 14k
or so. But some will
end up posting giant ass pics.
pics are still off-topic for this "text only" group.
the proper way is to put a pic in a url and post the url.
if you want pics ?
why don't you take the time and start a corvette binary
Interesting. I can see the need for pictures to help the reading impaired. As to
posting pictures to a binary group it may be why some drive their cars on bike
paths instead of the highway. Some follow the rules, some are above them in
their minds. My server deletes them so it's not an issue.
Ric answered it when he said most don't know how to post a picture. For many
years I've told my daughter-in-law how to size them. When I do get pictures from
her I can see just the corner of a 500 KB jpg on a 19" screen.
I can see a
"need for pictures to help the reading impaired"
also for folks that just want to post pics of their vettes.
maybe someone will start such a group.
all I was saying was that this is NOT the group.
Yes there are - well by the megabyte anyway. Many broadband contracts
have usage limits - go over n megabytes/month & you get charged for
each additional megabyte. Then there's all the people using GPRS/3G
either with laptops or PDAs/smarphones.
Indeed - a bummer for the millions of people stuck with dial-up. Let
the 'eye-candy' brigade use the web forums & leave the text usenet
groups for those of us who don't wish to see a gazillion animated
smileys & avatars all over the screen!
