    Those are some cool pictures, but may I make a suggestion: Re-size them before you upload them and link them to your post. Even though Terraforums re-sizes them to fit the browser dimensions, they are still quite huge and it's making the page slow. If you would like more people viewing them, make them a little smaller.

    Hi,


    I have no clue, perhaps is the silica sand, or just the plant. Who knows.

    Haha, yup, that's one of my favorites. That catesbaei is awesome!

    Sure send me all your collection, I will be very happy to accept it!

    Hi,
    I don't honestly know how the other people see these pics, or what size appears to the other members. About resizing, that will be very hard for the moment as resizing all pics take time. I also like good quality pics without editing them. I have a canon powershot G10, 14.7 camera excellent for taking good pics . But thanks for the suggestion though.

    I second Brokken's motion for resizing, at least in the future. It's really not that hard, even Paint can do it. As it stands, I don't have the patience to deal with scrolling through the pictures at a snail's pace. And I have a pretty powerful computer. Granted, I also have a very short attention span and very short patience, LOL, so maybe it's just me.

    As for the details, the forum simply takes the full-size picture and crams it into a smaller space. We see it just like you do, on the forum at least. Resizing the images doesn't damage quality at all, at least not noticeably. If you want people to be able to see the full size image while not hindering their ability to view them without frustration (in my case at least), make two copies. A smaller, resized version which you actually post on the forums but that links to the full-size image. For that, you'd do the following:

    [.url=URL_TO_THE_FULL_SIZE_IMAGE][.img]URL_TO_RESIZED_IMAGE[./img][./url]
    Just make sure to remove the periods. Nearly every one of the pictures in my thread is linked the same way.

    If you end up trying that and run into problems, I'd be happy to help.

    I have to agree with Broken and Kyle. I clicked your thread yesterday while on my crappy laptop and it loaded them all fine, but scrolling was way to slow for me to get past the first 3 or 4 photos and gave up. What I do is upload them to photobucket, which I have set to re-size automatically to 640x480. This way I can keep the originals full size, but post images that everyone can enjoy. If someone wanted a higher quality photo I can email it etc.

    I just came and looked at them now on my Imac and it was much better, but scrolling was still a little choppy.

    Either way, my favorite has to be your very first photo, very nice!
