Ah ha! IC. I even Photoshop them down to easy bandwidth viewing too, (22K in this case) oh well...
I was wondering why it was so cool to see a thread unfold with images without having to click a link, 1 at a time, losing the flow and interest/point.
I'll just post a image, one at a time, and post 5 times to get the point across. I don't like it, but I love the Forum and kinda understand the Admins regs on it. Naw, I lied, but shall heed and proceed accordingly!
56K modems, and free dial ups will be gone soon, I had one 5 years ago. Kinda like my first Aerotech kit... wait, that was 1 year ago, doh!
There is nothing wrong with the way you posted your pic. A few others do that as well.
It is just a nice feature for people without web sites to be able to upload pictures to the board. It is also nice for people that have limited bandwidth. This board can be so busy that sites hosted on Geocities and such would be shut down for short periods of time due to going over the bandwidth limit.
Now that would be frustrating...viewing the thread but not being able to see the pic at all!!
Another thing that folks do, if they have the photos up online on a web page photo album, is to post a link to the album. That way you can have two windows going, one with the text of the thread you're reading and the other with the photo's that pertain to it.
