Maybe something is broken, I'm sure I got an error saying must be no wider than 900
when I tried to upload a 1024 X 768 pic.

Anyway a test with a pic of my recent setup.
Edit:
Allowed 1024 X 768, maybe I was thinking of somewhere else I uploaded a pic.
here's the 800 X 600 version

I personally send the pic to myself through Outlook and that reduces it is size first then I save it to my desktop and attach it from there.

There are other ways but I am not familar with them Scott.

BTW you would not be the first person to post large pics either Scott. I think maybe the moderator can reduce them in size if need be.

That will depend on what photo software you have.
I just used Picasa, clicked the Export button and it lets you choose the size.

Just returned this morning from three nights at Andrew Drynan and thought I would post a couple of pics of our setup. We only bought the tarp on Thursday and was glad of it as it gave us peace of mind over the weekend and gave us a nice spot to eat and relax. Kept the tent a lot cooler as well. It was a good place to park the trailer when packing up also as it was raining at the time.

It always rains on tents. Rainstorms will travel thousands of miles, against prevailing winds for the opportunity to rain on a tent.

One side was a lot fuller then the other and by Saturday lunchtime a lot more people showed up. At no time over the weekend though could you say it was crowded. Sunday saw quite a few day trippers at the creek.

Some had questions about how to reduce photo sizes. I've posted some information on the Photo Comp section (even though the forum is preventing me from seeing my own photos!).
