| About digital photos and uploading:
This web application resizes incoming photos to a size of 640 pixels
wide. Your digital camera or your scanner will
produce photos that are 2,000 pixels wide by 1,500 pixels high or
even greater. Knowing this, you should resize your photos to 640 pixels
wide before you attempt to upload them into this system. Maintain
the ratio and allow the height of the photo to be calculated during
the resize process. Focus on the width of 640 pixels during the
resize process. Digital photos
can be resized with the software that came with your digital camera
or with Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, Microsoft Office Picture Manager or any pixel painting program or photo editing
to resize with Microsoft Office Picture Manager)
NOTE: Be careful that you
do not overwrite or lose your original high resolution photos. These
are good for prints. Save your resized photos on your desktop as
photo 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 etc. Then upload these resized photos into this
system. By doing this process, this system will not time out and
your photos will upload much faster since the application does not
have to resize the incoming photo. I have uploaded photos using this
method via a cell phone and a 14.4Bps connection speed.
