Finally got all of the LED street lamps installed.

It was a pain working with the extremely fine wires, but worth the effort.

Took these photos in complete darkness.

They sure do light up the scene.

Hi Chet  :wave:



HEY ! ... The lights look great !  :bg:



Your photos ARE getting here OK ...

... & they are 'ALL' there ... IF you use the 'scroll-bar', usually at the bottom of your browser-window.



If you are able to find the option on IMGUR to choose an 800 or 1024 pixel wide version of the photo ...

... it will display on the screen, all at once.



Alternately, you could try uploading photos to the 'Freerails Members Gallery' ...

... they are 'automatically resized' to 800 pixels wide.

Or, you could try uploading photos as 'Attachments', using the button at the bottom of the 'Main Reply Window' ...

... these are 'automatically resized' as well.

In BOTH cases, the original photo must be UNDER a file-size of 500K Bytes, or 0.5 MegaBytes.





Anyway ... I just Re-Posted this one ... And what a  C :cool: :cool: L  photo it is !



Have a go at uploading a few more Chet ... If you want.

We can always do a bit of 'sorting out' if it doesn't quite come out OK ...

... we aim to please !  :)



:!: :!: :!: :!: :!:



Si.

Here's another photo. I don't see a way to reduce the size of the photo.

This may have been covered before...
To reduce or edit any image, you can download something called GIMP which is free to use.
It is like Photoshop (TM) ($$$$$$$$$$$) in that it has way more features than you can use if you're like me,
but you can easily resize any image.

The original size of your image is 2560 x 1440.
To scale the image, open the file with GIMP, pick IMAGE then SCALE IMAGE,
make sure the chain icon is connected (you'll see it to the right of the width and height)
(you can click on it, on is connected chain the other is broken chain, you want width and height to remain the same aspect ratio)
then type in the width or height or use the up/down and then select SCALE.

You then select FILE then EXPORT to overwrite the image or EXPORT TO to write to a new filename.

I didn't find a way to reduce the size of the photos.
I belong to a few more forums and this is the only one I have had problems uploading photos.
One of them I can upload them right out of an album on my computer directly to the forum with no size problems.
I'll have to figure something out or stop posting photos.
Thanks.

Hi Chet  :wave:



Have you read the simple instructions on photo Posting, in the 'Photo Posting' Forum ?

It is in fact VERY EASY to upload photos to the Freerails Members Gallery ...

... and it is even EASIER to use the simple 'Attachment'-button, which many Members use.



I would be more than pleased to help or answer any specific questions you have on doing this.

But the first step is to have a good read & give the existing directions a go.

Most Members are able to achieveve this OK, and it is EASY, once you know how & have done it once.



I'm pleased to help if needed anyway & it is NOT difficult, it is just a specific method which needs understanding.



All the best.



:)



Si.



This is your 'less than 0.5Mb size' photo from ^^ above ...

... Uploaded DIRECTLY to the 'Freerails Members Gallery' ...

... which has AUTOMATICALLY re-sized it to 800-pixels wide.

It took me about 30-seconds to do it.






:!: :!: :!: :!: :!:

I'll try some of these options.
Right now I am leaving to pick up a rental car.
We are leaving tomorrow for National bowling tournament in Syracuse, NY.
3 to 4 days on the road.
Will have to do this when we get back or if I time to try it on a laptop.
