Thanks for the addition to the group. Seriously considering building a drum roaster along the lines of oldgrumpus's. Love the design and craftsmanship.

How to Attach Pictures to Posts
seedlings
Before attaching a picture or file to a post, there are two key rules:

1) The picture must be less than 500 x500 pixels.
2) The file must be less than 97.66Kb

So, all of us with 7+ megapixel camreas have to do some editing otherwise the picture won't attach.

How do you know if your picture is too big? Hover your mouse over the thumbnail or icon of the picture on your computer. The little popup box will say "Dimensions: 1600x1200" or larger or smaller (or right click and go to "Properties"). 1600 pixels is too large. Homeroasters wants 500 pixels as the largest dimension. So... some math:

500 / Largest Dimension = % reduction required

In our case that's:
500 / 1600 = .3125 or 31% (always round DOWN)

Now, open your picture in MS Paint (right click, select "Open With" then "Paint"). Go to "Image" then "Strech/skew". In the Horizontal AND Vertical windows type in the % reduction, 31 in our case. Click OK. Save the file, and use this as the attachment! Viola!

How to attach it? When you go to make a new post, or to add a reply to an existing post, you'll see the "Attachment" section right above the "Preview Thread" and "Post Thread" buttons. Click "Browse" then find your re-sized image and attach it.

If you click "Preview Thread" you won't see your picture AND you will have to RE-ATTACH it before clicking "Post Thread". You must have typed something in the window in order to attach a picture.

Any trouble, just contact an Admin or Moderator by clicking on a name, then send a "PM" (Personal Message) and we'll help you pretty quick.

Aaaah, yes. That's a new "rule" since the site did an upgrade.

myroastersetup.jpg <------ Correct.

And, I don't know if it is necessary, but you might try to make the name unique in case there is already a file with that name:

Another tip is to download An Image Reducer/Resizer Power Toy to keep the file under 90 kb

Such an add on is available free from Microsoft

Image Resizer
This PowerToy enables you to resize one or many image files. When resizing you can choose from one of four standard sizes or choose a size that you specify. You can also choose to resize the original image or create a new one. Right click any image(s) and select 'Resize Pictures' in the context menu.

Ok, how do you attach several images in 1 post?

For example in Seedlings "CoffeeAir II Roaster Build" thread, post #44, there are several individual images attached. I had thought there wasn't any way to post multiple images without a separate post for each image.

Thanks,

Not possible at the moment

Now the only way is to do a composite photo via a program such as paint

See photo as an example

Yeah, I know about composits, I've done that here before.

So how did Chad do it in that post I gave as an example? Those are separate photos with a caption for each. Was it possible then but not now?

I believe that they are links from an online photo hosting site such as Photo Bucket

Press the photo button to the right of the similes
This will Display an image from a given URL address

Ok, I see what you are talking about. I think I saw somewhere in CS or HB forums that the online photo hosting was the only way to do it there also.

When I get my Robert Frost BM/HG finished I'll be posting some pics.

Thanks KK.
