tjw,
It took me a long time to get from A to B. I'm just too illiterate on computer stuff, especially working with photos. I posted a photo of my instrument panel on the Test Board(I believe it's the last section on the list here). But, it comes out giant size, and I can not figure out my newly downloaded Kodak Photo-Share. It might not have a re-size capability.
On another note, were you aware that the Kohler twin comes with a 1/8" NPT oil port? I asked because I see where you installed an adapter at the filter.
Anyway, I hope I can learn about re-sizing photos. And, what I mean is learning how to make ALL the photos that I download from my camera about 1/3 size, from what they are.

aegt5000,
From you, and from many, many others, the implication is that ALL software that comes with digital cameras, or is downloaded from internet sites, is screwed up. We've bought 3 different cameras, trying to find just one that works in the way 99% of us would like. Is there a camera that comes with sensible software? Why should we have to re-size EVERY darn picture we take, resize to a "normal" size, a size that is suitable for the purpose that everybody has? It would make me feel really good if I could find ONE person on this planet that prefers giant pictures, every time. I don't get it. I should stick to mechanical things, I can solve mechanical problems, not computer problems. It makes me feel like I was born 40 years too late.

aegt5000 help out us dummies, before signing up for hpphoto, do the pictures from the camera have to be downloaded to the c drive first, or directly to hpphoto? thanks for any information.

tjw,

I use hpphoto all the time. When I plug my camera, Sony Cybershot, into the USB post, it shows up as an icon similar to a hard drive. I usually copy pics I want to keep into a folder on the main drive. Up loading pics to hpphoto is very similar to attaching pics in your e.mail program (I use Yahoo).

Cameras usually have a menu to select the size of the photo you want to take. I can select size by xxx by xxx or the option of "e.mail". That's the one I use. Check your manual and it should explain this feature.

tjw,
I received your email. I sent you 2 photos, one of my wife on the Husqie and one of the instrument panel. Please reply by e-mail if you receive the photos. Apparentyl, this new Kodak program uses its own e-mail server, whereas my previous Kodak program used my Microsoft Outlook for e-mailing the photos. Neither program was user friendly, it took me forever to learn the old program, and now I'm in for another forever. The new e-mail system has one feature that the old one had, it sends e-mailed photos in appropriate e-mail size. Let me know. Thanks.

Sorry I was late, glad Greg was able to help you.

I just load the pictures from the camera onto the computer and
don't usually worry about size. After they are on my "C" I go to
HP Photo, click on "Upload Pictures" and select the pic'c I want
to upload. This I very easy to do. After the pic's are uploaded
on my HP Photo album, just select the picture you want to include
in your post and click "Create Auction Link" HP Photo will create
the link, you sellect Small, Medium or Large and preview the link.
Then just copy and paste the link onto text box of your post.

I've been trying and trying. I downloaded HPphoto, and moved everything was going OK except it kept giving me a Security Warning, that I had to install and run http//:hpphoto.com/downloads/ReadFileApplet.cab
Which I finally did(I was fearful), and then it let me go on a move some photos to HPPhoto. But, it will not let me attach them to a post. I go through the steps, and when I try to Submit Reply, I keep getting a:
Bulletin Message

Willie,

I'm a bit confused. You say "I downloaded HPphoto and moved.." I have never "downloaded" HPphoto, I simply go to their website. Could you explain? What did you download?

I have never seen the Security Warning, but it seems like you got that fixed.

"But, it will not let me attach them to a post." What do you mean? After you uploaded the pics, opened the album they're in, clicked on one pic to view it, did you click on the "create link" button at the upper right corner of that window? Did you then choose the size you want, copy the "code" in the window and then paste it in the text window or attachment window of a forum or e.mail program.

What format have you taken the pic in, or saved it in? There should be a "format" menu item on your camera. Find it and choose jpeg or jpg. These are the easiest and most common format(s) to post in e.mails and forums. You should also be able to select a pic and "Save As" in your photo software. Again, choose jpeg or jpg.

Ok Willie, You say you want to resize photos? Go to any search engine (Yahoo, Google Msn.com search) and type in power toys for microsoft. This will lead you to a download site where you can download a image resizer for the microsoft "My Pictures" . Once that is complete when ever you want to resize a picture you simply left click the picture and the resizer is listed, click on that and you can resize the photo.

Greg,
I apologize for not using proper terminology. I followed aeGT5000's suggestion(several posts above). I joined HPPhoto. I moved 4 photos from my new Kodak photo place to it. My new photo place is KodakEasyshare because my old Picture Easy 3.1 which I used successfully in my old laptop is not compatable with my big Dell which has XP Professional. The camera I'm using, becuase it takes high resolution photos, and I kinda know how to use it, is a Kodak DC265Zoom. It has always taken photos such that the format comes out jpeg. I took the batteries out to charge them the other day, and I noticed that I had to set the date and time in it(something that hadn't happen before). Could it be that it's so stupid as to change into a format that nobody uses? Here's the url for the photo of my instrument panel, it's in the HPPoto program, which BTW does everything that aeGT5000 said it did. This photo is one I took after I changed the batteries in the camera, BUT I downloaded it from the camera into KodakEasyshare along with many others that were in the camera. I also moved all other photos in my C drive into the new Easyshare(they're all there), but I only moved 4 into HP.
the following is what I pasted into the browse box which is under the larger reply box. but, when I click on submit reply, it doesn't go. It gives me the error message.



http://home.hpphoto.com/servlet/LinkPhoto?GUID=54cb3095-64de-2c74-3b44-27e12cdf3808&size=lg

OOPS, I just tried to open the photo, and it opened, but I must've selected a different one, one of the 4 which is in the album that's in HP. This indicates that I don't need to use the browse business for just enclosing a link to a photo. I'll try again using the photo of the panel.

OK, so I now have a method of enclosing a link to a photo. I must say that it takes me several steps to get to where I can copy the photo url onto my clipboard. For one, I have to type in my name and password to get into the photos in hpphoto.
So, does this mean that my photo format is compatible for the purpose of attaching a photo to a post, here on this forum?
And, how do I do that?
Thanks.

Pic in a post

Willie,

You've got the steps and format down now.

Here's youre pic "embeded" into the post (as opposed to "attached" to the post.)

<img src=http://home.hpphoto.com/servlet/LinkPhoto?GUID=32711c7f-5558-1d5d-706c-5ac264c4751a&size=lg>

Here's the code you should type, img src=..... replacing the ....'s with the address of your photo, which is:

"http://home.hpphoto.com/servlet/LinkPhoto?GUID=32711c7f-5558-1d5d-706c-5ac264c4751a&size=lg"

The full code will look like this:
img src=http://home.hpphoto.com/servlet/LinkPhoto?GUID=32711c7f-5558-1d5d-706c-5ac264c4751a&size=lg

Simply type a < at the beginning and a > at the end, no spaces, submit and your pic will appear!

Be sure to push the "Post Reply" button at the bottom of the page and use it's window, not the "quick reply" window. This will allow you to preview your reply to see if it is OK before you submit it.

Greg

Willie,

Here's your pic in the "original" size. When you create a link, choose "original" or simply delete the "lg" or "sm" from the end of the link (..size=lg or size=sm) and it will come out like this.
