Today's KatKwiz was about posting photos on TCS.Where do you keep the majority of your photos that you post on TCS? Did you pick up today on why TCS prefers to use a link to your photos? Do you know the size limitations for the link method AND the managed attachments? It is quite evident that a lot of newbies place giant photos on their posts and that the moderators resize them; do you think that should be a moderator's job? Do you have any IDEA of what the total photo storage on TCS might be?l
Persi & Alley! You've got me addicted! I have a throbbing head ache and it's 10:30 at night and I'm exhausted but I had to sign on to get my KatKwery done!
I'm not sure what you mean exactly by your first question. You mean, where do I link them from? Or where do I have all my originals? So I'll answer both! My originals are stored in various places- I like to have many copies in case I lose one! So I have most of them on those tiny little memory cards- my camera and cell phone use the same type (not a coincidence
)- and also I have copies on my work and my home laptops. When I am going to post one or some to TCS, I upload them to photobucket. So, ALL pictures I have on here are linked from photobucket.
I would say TCS prefers the link method to save, um... What's it called? Storage space? Bandwith? Whatever it would take on their server to store all those pictures itself! I'm sure that would cost a TON of money and slow us down tremendously. So that is my guess!
Size limitations? One of these days I'll figure out if, on the internet, "size" refers to physical size or memory size. I know when I upload them to photobucket, I use the "shrink to "large" size", which I think is, uh... 620 x 480? And the mods let that pass!
It's not just newbies that do that.
It took me forever to figure out how to get the right size! I knew the limits and had read them, I just didn't know what it meant or how to apply them. But one message from a mod and I got it ok and haven't been scolded since!
No, I don't think a moderator should resize the pics. In fact, I think what was done with me is perfect. Give a warning- say, 24 hours- and if they're not down to size, delete!
Because deleting the post won't delete the linked photos.
Of course I have no idea what the total photo storage on TCS is! Ugh, I can't even figure out what you mean by that! Do you mean the total number of linked pictures? The ones people store on here? The ones that Anne uses as the little faces and symbols and stuff? All of the above? By total, do you mean memory size or number of pics?? Man, I'm such a doofus.
All right!! My new nightly ritual is complete! I can sleep in peace now.
Time to take some Tylenol and call it a night!!
