I'm particularly interested in recommendations for little, light-weight utilities to aid in cropping & resizing of images.

Another thought is allow a single "super size" image (800x600), without any standard size or thumbnails, but it that making things too complicated ?

Also, any volunteers for writing high quality tutorials on cropping & resizing in specific applications ?

Hey Ian,

Kevin Blocksidge wrote a tutorial for Gimp that is on Classic-Castle. Also, Michael Hopkins has a tutorial on Photoshop on his website.

I'd be willing to write up a tutorial for Fireworks, since that's what I use. I know it's a bit pricey and most of the members probably don't have it, but it's an excellent program.

Also, anyone who has MS Office probably also MS Image Editor, which comes bundled with it. I could probably dig out my copy of that and write a tutorial from cropping and resizing. It's a crappy program, but it does allow you to do those two functions fairly well.

That said...the new guidelines don't really bother me since I post all my images as links anyway.

Although, if I could make a suggestion, you might want to post a link to this discussion on the main fbtb.net page.

Something I found recently is that Windows XP has a add-on image resizer. I've used it, and its pretty easy. All you have to do is highlight the images, right click, click resize, then set the resulting size.

Edit:Wow, I completely missed that in your suggestions in the guidelines post Embarassed

No, I think you're right on with the 3 640x480 images, just because that's a standard with most cameras (that I've seen). And I do think the one "supersize" image business may get complicated, because there are members who don't read properly, and we may just see 3 800x600's in every post.

So, I think we should just stick with the 3 640x480's because it's nice and simple and fits most camera dimensions.

I could make one for resizing in Paint Shop Pro.
Cropping - is this when you only use parts from a picture?

yeah, cropping is like resizing, only you're cutting stuff out of the picture rather than shrinking the whole thing.

Basically, isn't what you're trying to get across this - post a few medium-sized pics so that everyone can get an idea of your MOC, but if you have a lot of pics, please link to them using Brickshelf or some similar site?

N'est-ce pas?

ApophisV has a nice MSpaint tutorial on Eurobricks.
[Link]
The pictures are in German, but I thought it still might be helpful for people who use paint.

Your photo needs to be uploaded somewhere online.. not your computer. We can't see stuff on your computer. Use Brickshelf or flickr to upload your photos.

Pure owniage, I suggest you try flickr for resizing. It automaticly resizes all your photos to 500x375 or something like that.

To get the code from your flickr picture, simply right click on it, go to properties, and copy the url. The url should look like this:
Code:
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2190/2211989951_16de4988af.jpg?v=1201028442


However, flickr picture URL's add extra stuff to the url, so just copy it to where the '.jpg' ends, so it looks like this:
Code:
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2190/2211989951_16de4988af.jpg


Your end result should something like this, though not the same picture Wink :


Hope I helped! Smile

Brickshelf will not do it. Flickr will. If you want to stay with brickshelf, use the thumbnail images in your posts.
