When posting in the Member's Gallery, you now have the ability to upload larger versions of your preview image directly to the website!  More details inside...

Details:

When posting a new topic, you will find a second button next to the standard upload button (which looks the same) entitled "Wallpaper Upload".  Clicking this will bring up a popup window where you can browse to additional images (on your local system).

Some things to remember:

*** The upload function does NOT actually check your image resolution sizes (like 1280x1024) - it is up to you to browse to the correct images for your desired fields.

***  You do NOT have to fill-in all the fields...just the sizes you want to upload.

***  Nothing has changed with the standard PREVIEW image upload.  Works as usual.

***  This has been tested with IE only.  Your mileage may vary in other browsers.

Once you choose your file paths, hit "Ok".  You will receive a popup action window asking that you be patient.  Go ahead and hit "Ok" on this also. 

The upload has now started.  It may take some time, especially if you are on a slow connection.  There is no status indicator, but when it is complete, the large popup window (where you choose the paths) will go away and you will see a single line of links in your post. 

Please save your images at a reasonable quality level (around 8 in Photoshop for example) to keep the file size as low as possible.

Good-luck.

BTW, The 250K limit is per image, not total.  Let me know if that is too constricting.  Unfortunately my next option jumps all the way to 500K and I'm worried about chewing up that disk space on the web server too quickly if we do that.  See how it goes though...we will change if necessary.

Hawkeye, maye you could put in some other kind of restriction, like only the latest 3 pieces of each artist will get this link...or that the link expires after a certain amount of time?

Well, all changes, except the file size limit, are beyond my skill set (they require programming), so I'm trying to minimize those things for now.  Let's roll with it and we will see how it goes, then we'll decide.

Gang, I was finally able to update the image posting instructions to include this new functionality - I know there has been some confusion, so this should help.  Take a look at the posting via THIS LINK.

Thanks!
