I LOVE the new photos system 8 Years, 8 Months ago  
I just want to say, there's a positive result from that hacker -- as Homer Simpson once said, the Chinese use the same word for "crisis" that they do for "opportunity" -- "crisitunity!"

The new photos system is, IMHO, VASTLY superior to the old. I like the fact that you can post up to 20 pics in one hit, instead of 3 at a time. (some people seemed to get around that, but for me, I always had to do 3 at a time)

It's also MUCH faster - it took AGES to post pics before, and now they seem to get grabbed and posted almost immediately.

I also prefer the thumbnail approach -- whenever looking at, say, one of IO's or otherword's threads, there was always an extra wait of getting those 30 pics re-loaded whenever you wanted to read the latest post in the thread. This way, you can just get thumbnails, and pick and choose which pics you want to see in their full glory. Page loads much faster.

In the end, it works out quite well to have this shakeup right when DoE showed up. I hope things stay this way when SF Beta and the Cavernous River set ship, because there's gonna be a lot of picture-taking then, too....

That was my problem too MLV.
IT looks lke you cannot post pics in every topic area; only in the specific photo section have I seen the "upload image" function.
Jeff can you fix that for us please?
THere are reasons for pics elsewhere in the forums.

No... Of the Thumbnails in Use... I Have Not Attempted to Load any Photos Anywhere Since the New Board went Up...

That Having Been Said, I Have Seen Both "Full" Pics and Thumbs on the Board, Does anyone Know if You Get a Choice When Uploading?

I'm 99% sure that if you use the protocols in the forums, you get thumbnails.

IF you link directly to hosted pics somewhere on a server, you get full pics.

So for those of us with no server space, it's going to be thumbnails-only.

Like I said before, I think it's an improvement. I can upload more pics, more easily. And I can view other people's pics more easily, too, and focus on the ones I like most....

Thanks For Clearing that up... I Wonder why the Linked Pics are Not Automatically Displayed as Thumbs as Well?
