View Full Version : Yet another "testing my new camera" thread

24th Apr 2010, 10:11 PM
Ok, so I finally got it out and played with it a bit. I played with the f stops and automatic vs manual setting pics. I don't really know what I have yet but here are the pics it takes.

Some shots of my loco stable

Hmmmmm, pictures didn't upload............stay tuned to this bat channel.....

ha good luck getting them up
what did you use to post them?

25th Apr 2010, 06:41 AM
check to make sure they are sized appropriately. I use 1200 by no more than 800 pixals.

How do I set that parameter?

25th Apr 2010, 08:43 AM
I do it in my computer's picture software and save it as ..... that way I keep the original.

Yes, most cameras save the images at the largest possible size by default (at least the ones I've used have) and that will certainly cause problems with trying to upload them here!

You should be able to change the size used within the camera's setup menu. Alternately, as has been said, use computer software to do it after copying them from the camera.

For here I would suggest nothing larger than 1024 pixels wide.

If you haven't already check out FAQ/Working with Images. Click on FAQ at the top of the page.

Ok. I am apparently lost. I have tried resizing image that the camera takes, I have tried resizing the image in the software and everything else I can think of.

Stay tuned.......again..........lol I WILL figure it out.

What are you clicking here at nScale.net to upload your photos? I don't have any problems almost all the time (I don't remember the last time I had a problem).

All the best,

I am clicking on the little paper clip icon and trying to attach the pictures that way, is there a different way?

Try this on for size

Ron, both worked just fine! Of course you "attached" images from your own computer!

Please check FAQ/Working with Images - top of the page!

Or, has been said several times today, somewhere or other, RTFM! >:-}

I see that I am allowed to insert a picture from a URL......im lost, if it is an image on my computer how can it have a URL? I thought that a url was like the address for a website? I told you guys I am not good at computers...I can type like mad but this stuff is frustrating!!

28th Apr 2010, 09:34 PM
Pic number two is better. I can't quite tell what is different ... maybe not as much glare? But it is definitely a great shot!

The paper clip is for attaching a file from your own computer. If you've already put the photo in your nScale.net photo album, just copy and paste the BB code text from the photo page directly into the post...

So if you put in the text that looks like this:
[ IMG ]http://www.nscale.net/forums/picture.php?albumid=157&pictureid=2555[ /IMG ] (spaces added so you can see the code, not the pictures...)

You get this:

(I love this picture!!!)

Similar to an issue in another thread, the "www." is missing. The link above won't work; this one will:
