Great job Michael! Very straight forward and informative.

I'll second Herb's suggestion on a side note for Mac users. Poor guy must have stayed up for 3 days trying to figure that out. ;)

Very well done, where were you when I first became a member? Now all you have to do is explain how to put the pic at the bottom of our posts, and the best size/pixel (whatever). Mine looks like A$$ and everyone elses looks so good!!

you need to resize your picture... use a graphix program like Photoshop or CorelDRAW to modify it. Find out the size of the other banners (R-click and click on properties) for a template.

Any image, full size or thumbnail. If you try this on a thumbnail, you'll have to remove the"tn_" in the address. Works if the image is uploaded to the DML site or from another web page.

Michael,

Nice job on the FAQ's.

I did not see anything about if you have your photo on a non-dml url, how to post it. More precisely, I think people need to be reminded not to post huge wide photos in their messages. I hate the exploding window problem when you have to scroll back and forth to read the posts. I have noticed some people are doing it too wide with their footer image also, and it makes the threads look messy.

... the only exception is the Ducati Babes thread... no one's complaining about photos that are too big on that one!

I use a laptop at home and at work. My work resolution is 1024x768, and I think my home is the same. It is not possible to make things smaller on a 11inch screen. Also, I like to have my favorites displayed along the side in IE, so my effective horiztonal viewing width is maybe 800.

... can't you hook your notebook up to an external monitor?

I could but... I don't have one. I could request one, but I don't have a lot of extra desk space. I have a SUN unix machine with a 19inch CRT screen sitting next to the laptop. Since I don't do a lot of graphics apps on the laptop, I am happy with the 11 inch LCD display. I think they are easier on the eyes too. The next desktop I get will have a LCD display rather than CRT. The unix machine doesn't have a web browser.
