The pics look good! :thumbsup2:

I assume you're asking about why you can't just upload full-size pics directly to WaGuns. Let me take a swing at that:

1) When you upload directly to WaGuns, the photos go onto our server. Our server isn't really that big, and it will fill up quickly. That's why we limit the size of photos that can be uploaded directly.

2) Servers crash. Yes, even the WaGuns server. :bigsmile: We've had this happen before, and we've lost photos that were on our server. We'd really prefer that your photos be hosted elsewhere; it's probably safer for your photos.

As for photo size, whether hosted on WaGuns or on a different server such as imgur or tinypic, I'll make one other comment. I think it's ideal when photos are resized before upload, as the holster photos above are. It's true that if you upload a full-size file to a remote host, you can link it here . . . what happens then is your browser will load the full-size photo, and then resize it so you can actually see the whole thing. However, it needs to load the whole, GIANT file first. As I type this post, I'm sitting in a hospital (not for me, I'm fine) using their shared wifi, and the connection isn't great. This means that when I read a post that has full-size photos in it, it can take up to a couple of minutes for the whole post to load . . . I feel like it's 1990 all over again. It is so much nicer when the photos are resized first, to keep the file size small.

I checked one of the holster photos above. It's about 170 KB in size. I bet the original photo is about 3 MB. That means that the resized photo above is about 18 times smaller in file size than the original, so it will load 18 times faster. That's why resizing is a great thing. :thumbsup2:
