I have been trying unsuccessfully to post photos of a couple of bowls I finished recently. I think my pics might be too big. How do I make them small enough to post here and how do I get the photo into the posting? Thanks,
Ed

The simplest way, if your camera has the feature, is using a lower resolution for the image. At the physical size being viewed on the screen there won't be a great deal of image degradation. Not the best choice in doing digital photography but is the simplest.

Otherwise you need an image editing program such as PhotoShop Elements or any one of several share ware programs available. I only know PhotoShop so I don't know how other applications go about editing file size. In PhotoShop you can change the image either in file size or the physical dimensions.

It was easier to turn the 2 bowls than it is to get them posted here. I've got Photoshop. Guess I will have to waite till my grand daughter can show me how to do it.

Hey Ed, if you use Photobucket for on-line image hosting, it downsizes your photos as you load them, automaticly! No muss, no fuss, and they can be further edited once you've up-loaded them on the site. I love photobucket. See Mango's post for the link.

Try converting files to JPEG before uploading. If file too big, open file with Paint, click IMAGE, select Stretch/Skew, reduce image size. There is a 100KB limit, this file was only 43KB

Thank you all for the help posting photos. I opened it with PAINT and reduced it . The bowls are 8"x2" paduk (sp).

Thanks Ed, its ambrosia maple. Wife says its strange looking bowl. I really like yours, particularly the color and grain. Does paduk keep its color? What kind of finish do you use?

These were the first real bowls that I have made. I made several other practice bowls with cherry, red oak and locust from the fire wood pile. But they were only about 3" or 4" in diameter. First time I used Paduk so don't know if it will keep it's color. The finish is a concoction of 50% Howard Feed-n-wax and 50% bees wax.

I've done a little work with Paduk before. It's orange when fresh cut, goes deep red when finished and slowly, over several years, goes to a dark brown. Using a UV resistant top coat, and keeping it out of direct sun light helps it keep the red longer.
