Photo posting 101!

Ok kids, we love all the photos you post with your ads, but there are a few things you can do to make your photo posting easier and your ad viewers experience a little better. Think of this as Craigs quick photo primer.

Keep it under 1000x1000 pixels.
When loading those massively giganticness like photos you love on your hard drive, remember that some people don't have smoking fast modems or super duper graphics cards. Our recommendation is to keep your overall photo size BELOW 1000 pixels wide and 1000 pixels tall... to show you have large that format looks, the main photo above is just under those proportions. Click on it and you'll see that it is pretty big, but not stupidly large big, which is important.

What if I want to post a BIGGER photo?
You can try, but our server filters try to format all photos to better interface with all web browsers, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla. If you post some whoppers and they don't seem to load... don't panic, just open up the originals on your hard drive, resize them down under 1000 pixels in both directions, reload them and you will have magic on your hands.

Hope it helps and as always, drop me an email if you want to chat, gripe, complain, insult or torment us in any way.

Thanks for the ads
Craig and Melissa Hull Founders
