People are going to find that there are a lot of problems with IE 10, if it updated on you and all of a sudden you can not upload the pictures, then that is the problem you roll back to IE 9 and you should be all right again. I am using Firefox 19.0.2 and I am not having any problems. IE has other problems also, so do yourself a favor and don't update IE. Just my option and 2 cents, before the penny is not more.

Peter,

Basically the same way as posts.  Except hit the "Use Full Editor" button.  You'll see the "Attach Files" down to the left.

Here's the discussion on PM's: http://modelshipworl...rivate-message/

 

 

I had trouble as well but figured out a work around.  If you have a Google account or photo bucket or some other website you post photo's on right click and choose copy image URL.  Then in the PM click the Image link that is right below the smiley face.  It will ask for the URL, paste the image url and click ok.  The image will appear wherever your cursor is.  This works for posting images to posts as well.  It's how I post emoticons most of the time.

When I was posting pictures to my site I received the following message.. ".Sorry, but you have posted more images than you are allowed to"   Since I have not finished posting the pics I'd like to what can I do to be allowed to continue?

You can only post up to 10 images in each post.

 

That is the maximum in each post.

Speaking of adding photos: I think the quality of a lot of the photos I see could be improved with some really easy steps that can be taken on the day a modeler takes the photos. Consider that the photos posted HERE represent the only view most of the world is ever likely to get of your model, so why not take the best possible photo? WHAT IS BEHIND THE MODEL? We shouldn’t even have a clue. Drape some neutral fabric behind the model to block the view of your living room or workbench. A white sheet should be your last choice as the white, in my opinion, is too stark and tends to make the photo look like a mug shot. Still, a piece of plywood, a blank wall or a white sheet is better than your living room, against which very little of the rigging is going to be visible. Even fabric can be a bit wrong since if it has even one wrinkle in it, it will draw your eye. The best choice, in my opinion, is some grey or tan colored paper. But if you have a larger model this will be difficult. At the very least, put the model against a blank wall in your home when you take the photo. DON’T USE THE CAMERAS FLASH. This lends a stark “mug shot” aspect to the photo as the harsh flash eliminates all shadows. Subtly curved surfaces appear flat under the cameras flash. Textured surfaces appear smooth. Better to set up one two or three table lamps off to one side of the model and out of view of the camera. Take the shade off the lamps. In this way the light strikes your model from the side and brings out all the detail and textures. Curved shapes (like the hull itself) will have their subtleties revealed by the light and shadow. Not using the flash necessitates some other precautions though, since in lower light the camera has to take a longer exposure and this means the camera has to be absolutely immobile, you can’t hold it in your hand to take the shot. I stack up some books to the right height and put the camera on the books. Even pressing the button on the camera will cause the camera to jiggle slightly and blur the photo. Use the cameras Self Timer to trigger the photo, that way the camera is as still as possible since you are not touching the camera when it triggers.  In my opinion the very worst scenario is taking a flash photo of a model in a glass case with the living room visible in the background. The flash bounces right off the glass and there is a big white spot in the center of the photo and off in the back I see a couch. At the very least you should, in my opinion, take the model out of the case.

I have just started my build log of a model in progress.  I want to add images to my blog but and totally baffled as to how it is done.

The first statement in these instructions is:

 1. Open the Edit Box by clicking the "Edit" at the bottom of the Post :

Yet there is NO Edit box and the bottom of my post.

Can someone supply me with a set of instructions on how to attach a photo of my model to my blog?

Thanks.

 

(NOTE:  There is no Edit Box at the bottom of this post.)

Actually there is and "Edit" Box on the post, but only after it has been posted.  Does that mean that you post the text, and then edit the post to add the images?

Thanks.

Does anyone remember the link to the free photo editing software that was recommended on MSW 1.0?  I really liked that software because I could set the resolution to be exactly what I needed. 

 

Thanks in advance,

hi max

 

paint (windows 7) lets you resize a picture either by percentage or pixels

Can you also choose the file size?  That is the other problem I have been running into.

file size depends on the resolution and the compression

 

i have set my camera to 2 mega pixels which is 1600x1200 pixels. the files are then between 300 and 700KB which i think is big enough to get a detailed enough view

 

the site lets you upload files up to 2MB so well wihtout the limit

Nice, I just changed my camera setting... hopefully it will be a similar size and not require editing or compression.

Ive noticed that a few members have posted their build log pictures from before the crash and I'd like to resubmitt all my pictures from before as well. So my question is how can I post the dozens of pictures when there is only a 10 picture limit?

Hi Dan, I am new to this site and having trouble adding pictures to my posts.

I am using Windows 7 and unlike your example, on the bottom right corner all I see is the words 'post" and "More Reply Options"

Can you offer any help
