Would like to post ecab pics and final pics

Postby JR Allen » Wed, Jul 01 2015, 7:05PM

Hello everyone. Still being a semi newbie, I would like to post some Ecabs presentation pics and final job pics. I'm not sure of the recommended way to post maybe 4 jobs with pics, is a Zip file better than 8 pics on the forum? I've received some nice compliments on presentation pics and just thought I'd share with the Ecabs community. :?

Hi JR
Photos of jobs and layouts tend to get posted in the customer images section of the forum.
People like to look at them because some threads have 2, 3, 4000 views.
So if you would like to take the time to load them up, I'm sure they will get lots of lookers.

Hi Mark, Thanks for the reply, that's what I thought. I guess my intended question was, would attaching a zip file be better than cluttering the Customer Images with a bunch of pics?

JR,

My 5 cents* would be that - it is better to upload the pictures as they can be viewed directly. People can then review the smaller representations and "click-to-enlarge" as they go.

A ZIP file would require people to download the ZIP and unarchive it before they can view the pictures - something that some people may not feel they have time to do.

If you have a lot of images - another alternative would be to set up a Tumblr account (or similar) to host your pictures. Then upload one or two "samples" to the forum with a link to the others.

(* Pennies are no longer in circulation here in Canada.)

Looking forward to seeing your work.
