    Hey Pete dude

    I like the minister shot. Could be straightened up a bit but I like the halo effect around his hair and those organ pipes looking like teeth above him. Might look good in B&W too.

    It would be a lot easier, and faster, if you posted them in the forum as per the posting guidelines rather than as a list of links.

    Or is that just me ...

    Maybe Pete's web hosting site doesn't permit external linking to images. There's no rule say that they 'have' to be embedded but I go along with the general idea that if you make them easier to see, you are more likely to get feedback.

    Links to images

    The problem with downloading (in this case) 7 images when your on dial-up or out on the road using a mobile phone (bluetooth) to laptop or windows mobile phone is the loading time, plus you might be charged per 1mb as well...

    So, we have to reach a compromise somewhere – that’s why I like a small clickable image so that everybody can see the images.

    If you’ve got Adobe ‘Save for Web’. Colour images need be no more that 20/50k (depending on detail and colours) and b/w 10/25k.

    The trouble is that people are using free hosting sites and putting up large size images then hoping they can get below the 100k by adjusting the size – starting with 600px then 500 px and so on until it gets below 100k – totally wrong!

    What should happen is that you upload a 600px image below 100k to start with (in a special folder on your hosting site). Then place it in the forums…

    There are plenty of free programs that can resize an image before you upload and if you want help you only have to ask me…

    Re: Links to images

    Maybe links should be restricted to the gallery forum and make this forum images only? You could still permit images to link through to a larger version if the author desires, but at least this makes sure that posts want feedback actually contain images.

    Just a thought from a newcomer! Wouldn't want to upset the status quo around here.

    I find that deviantart crashes my browser when I visit the site. I don't know if embedded images would have the same effect. (Yeah, I know, upgrade my browser, but as it's the only site that does this, I don't actually have that much incentive.)
