I've thrown in a couple in the model railways section to encourage others to do similar.

Even though I got some great shots on the Festiniog, I am so impressed with my Wigan show Deltic, I've submitted two into the model section!!

Festiniog coming soon in a Bealman adventure.....  :D :sleep: :sleep:

Just added one to the 'Real Section' - not done much 'pretty' modeling this year, but I have been to loads of railways these last few months, enjoying the sunshine, a few beers ( :beers:)  and taking photo's  :camera:....

Still got the little trains of Wales to do yet, but thats not till September.
If it's got rails... you have my full, undivided attention - Steam, diesel and electric, 'tis all good !

I have a couple in the 'Real Railways' section, from my recent visits to the SVR and Isle of Man...

Do you have any picture editing software on your computer?

If you don't have any photo editing software, try uploading it to something like Farcebook. Then it will automatically be compressed for you. Download that version and then upload it here.

Or are you talking memory size? I have to use an optimizer program to get any pics off my SLR onto the forum.

For those M$ Widnows [sic] users amongst us:

1) Load picture in Picture Viewer (double click on the picture thumbnail and it should open in Picture Viewer as default).
2) Click on 'Paint' in the 'Open' menu at the top of the page.
3) Paint will open, click on 'Resize' in the toolbar at the top.
4) Make sure 'Maintain aspect ratio' box is ticked. Change either the horizontal or vertical percentage (the other one will change automatically). The percentage you want will depend on the original size of the picture, so a bit of trial and error will be needed as Paint will not easily tell you what the bytesize of the picture is until you save it (see 6)).
5) Save the picture under another name (so you don't overwrite the original sized picture).
6) Check in Paint Menu/Properties to see what the bytesize is now ('Size on Disk'). If you need to reduce more, then undo the resize and use a smaller percentage number then resave.
7) Once you're happy with the picture as it is now, and it meets the size restriction, upload the new version of the picture to Tank's album.
