    To bad. Posting pics directly is a pain due to file size restrictions, and I rarely do it. However, posting a link to a picture posted elsewhere is easy. That is why I use photobucket.com. Flickr is another good one, but is a pain for viewers because they have to log on. There are a few more services that are not as common but also work.
    Good luck,
    Josh

    Talking We demand photos!

    Seeing is believing. You really need to post some thumbnails so the gang can get a look. I can't seem to do it myself, either. How do we reduce the size to fit the limited format? You can ask Manouchehr M. (moderator) to post 'em for you. He helped the fellow with the silver-hilted dao put some thumbnails on his thread. Still, how the heck do we do it ourselves? Good luck with the jian. Jian are such wonderful swords. They are truly sublime. We must have a look at it, even if it has already sold. Please?

    Sincerely, Jon Palombi

    I agree that images would greatly improve the chances of a sale for this sword and Tony's dao. As an alternative to posting, Tony could offer to email pics or provide links to images.

    In brief....you can use Photoshop, MS Paint, or other image software to reduce the size/quality of the image to meet the limit.

    Adobe Photoshop has a free download available.
