I always edit in Photoshop before uploading to PB - maybe trying to edit in PB itself is the issue.


Yes, I too resize my pics to 800 wide on my PC before uploading.

Your edited picture on Britmodeller became 970x727 or about 1.21 bigger. It's a PB problem feature evidently.

I use a basic photo editing program and I save the original photo, then make an edited copy in a size below 800 x 600. That goes to my photo hosting site. From there I can post that photo on any of the three modelling sites I'm on. As it's 'ready to go' its a no fuss quick copy and paste the image link, at any time.

I had this problem with PB yesterday. I uploaded two photos and was about to pay them on here when I noticed they both would benefit from cropping after using the preview posting button.
I deleted both from the post and then cropped them using PB, saved them and then pasted the new links into my post on here. Surprise surprise I got the oversize picture warning yet the original uncropped images worked fine. Work that out!

This probably also answers my lingering unease about the 'fuzziness' of the images I post - something in PB is altering them. Might have to try another host.

As with any graphics program you need to check the options for resizing, any manipulation in fact. The cheap way is simple pixel resize which tends to loose detail - you should opt for some kind of "intelligent resize". Also look at how modified pictures are saved - JPEG is a "lossy" compression, but decent programs allow you to shrink that loss to zero or nearly so. If not, every time you save something, you are taking an additional hit on clarity ....

I still haven't figured out how/why PB turns Ralph's 800x600 into a 970x727 (whatever) after doing a simple filter. Must be a feature.

I looked around the web and nobody else appears to have this problem.


I may just start using a different service

Photobucket is notoriously bad at resizing :evil: Irfan is a free resizing tool. I use it to resize my images before uploading to my chosen Image Hosting Site.
