Comment about images. [In reply to] Can't Post

First, thanks to Arwen's daughter for leading this discussion and to everyone who hosts.

And, thanks to Arwen's daughter for pointing out the new image posting guide.

I would like to reiterate a comment I made in this post which became a sticky. I tend to overlook new posts when they're sticky and I'm not sure if everyone caught it. I'm going to basically copy that post here in this thread for those who might have missed it.

After I was declared the go-to-gal on the movie board for image posting help, I decided it would be easier to write it all down in one place for reference rather than answering each individual question. Well, some of you know how obsessive I am. It developed into quite a little website. Altaira's looked it over and we're ready to go live.

Torn Image Posting Guide

I've put a link in my footer.

I've made a few general comments in my announcement on Feedback that might bear reading but I wanted to touch two aspects here (since we post an insane number of images! :P )


Size:
When I first started the image posting tutorial, the footer images had a maximum size and a preferred size. In this post, Ataahua said that images embedded into the body of a post should conform to those guidelines. Since then, Altaira has changed the guidelines for footers (converting the preferred size to the maximum size). But the original sizes are still in place for embedded images.


Maximum Size for an image embedded in a post is 480 pixels by 360 pixels and 50 KB.

These boxes are the maximum size:

-------

Preferred size for images embedded in a post is 240 pixels by 180 pixels and 50 KB

These boxes are preferred size:

-------


For screenshots that are long, I tend to do 450 px wide. If I wish to focus in on an area, or
have a more squarish picture, I probably do a little larger than preferred size.

Hotlinking:
Just an additional gentle reminder that hotlinking is bad.

For more information, you can check out the thread on Feedback or the website.
