As many of you are aware (or are about to be), GMC4x4 has restrictions on the size of image uploads.  This is for images you upload directly to the site, embedding through an online medium (i.e. Photobucket) has no restrictions.

This is for two reasons - server space and bandwidth usage.

As an example, if large files (1mb+) were allowed, the speed at which pages load would increase quite dramatically and so would our need for additional servers. By keeping file sizes down, it allows the community to operate much more efficiently and promotes the use of embedding photos/vids/etc into posts through linking (i.e. facebook, photobucket, etc); these companies are equipped to handle larger loads.

With that in mind, there is a tool I used today that I found very valuable for avatars and signatures. It allows you to resize the image, so it fits within the community parameters.

http://www.resizeyourimage.com/

This is the first time I've used the site and it's free - if you run into any problems using it, please let us know and I'll look elsewhere for a better converter.

If you have any questions on the resizer (how to use it), let me know and I'd be happy to help you out.

General Membership size limits:
Garage 1500x1500 & 250kb
Avatar 150x150
Signature 600x200
Background Images 250kb

That's great, look forward to seeing it. If you have any questions about how parts of the image/vid system work, just ask.

Also, I'm working on mods to expand the file types of vids that can play here.

it should be pretty close to full screen when you link in from photobucket.

 

...or did you mean something else?

You were talking about an arangemnt that would allow hosting of big pics at another site like photbucket so that we could have large images for the garage without having to resize them. :)
