Here are some threads to help with posting pictures here at Railroad-Line.
There is also some general tips listed to help with the posting of pictures.

How to Post a Photo - REVISED 12/23/06 - http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=15110

How to resize photos for posting at RRL - http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=5383

posting photos using FireFox/Mozilla - http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=18629

Posting pictures to the forum and file size - http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=36807

Usually the two biggest problems as to why a picture won't post is size and naming convention.

Keep the long side of a picture at 800 pixels and save at a medium resolution.

Use only letters and numbers when you name your picture.

If you have any other questions let us know.

PhotoBucket is a site to store/display pictures on-line. They used to let non-paying users post links to their pictures on other sites, but no more, which messed up a lot of RR-Line threads.

Pixels are the little dots that computers and printers use. Most programs that let you change picture size give dimensions in pixels. 800x600 usually works on RR-Line.

451,000 bytes was the size of the picture file that wouldn't post. Many computers don't show you file sizes unless you ask. RR-Line only allows photos smaller than about 200,000 bytes.

HMMMMM.... I still don't have a single solitary clue what the heck ya'll are saying; photobuckets and 10k and 200k and 451k , pixels...pixies? Hell I used to pay good money to get my brain this messed up. WOW !!! KYLE P.S. 451,000 what?
Railrunner130 Posted - 08/14/2017 : 11:14:48 AM
Thanks. I found that Photobucket seems to still allow me to post photos. It's a royal pain getting the addresses correct and there's a photo it won't properly orient, no matter what I do. But the dimensions are nice and the allowable sizes are still larger.

I must pay attention to this. Thank you.

That's not the kind of message I get uploading a file that is too large. I get something like:

Request object error 'ASP 0104 : 80004005'
Operation not Allowed
/forum/outputFile.asp, line 13

Your file is too large but I don't think that is generating the error. Do you get the error uploading the image or when you try to post your message?

Carrie Creek Posted - 08/13/2017 : 3:02:22 PM
Your file size needs to be under 200k. The forum adds about 10 k thru the posting process. Reducing the picture so that the file size is correct makes the pic too small. You need to reduce the resolution down.
Railrunner130 Posted - 08/13/2017 : 1:40:03 PM
With the Photobucket issues, I am forced to upload to website galleries instead of a central location where pics can be divied out as I see fit....

Anyhow, in trying to upload here, I get "Invalid character or bad word in any of the text fields. Please correct and try again." no matter what I do... The photo I am trying to upload I downsized to max 800 pixels and the file is something like 451K. I removed the dash in the file name and even renamed it SB1.jpg.

What the heck am I missing?

Amen brutha.!!!! I quit passing notes in JR HIGH in 1969. I kinda like the sound o' th' HUMAN VOICE myself. Lots to learn from listening. Nice to know I ain't alone!

ROFL! (Rolling On Floor Laughing) I'm with you, Kyle. My family keeps asking to text or send videos to my "smart" phone. To me, a smart phone is one that works.

Kyle, it's text talk and means 'In My Opinion'. Some also use IMHO. the H is 'Humble".
kyle creel Posted - 12/27/2016 : 4:31:57 PM
P.S. what does IMO mean?
kyle creel Posted - 12/27/2016 : 4:29:40 PM
