I have plenty of digital pics of my Mobius LSV.

How do you guys load the thumbnail pic of your boat out beside your entries?

Clark,

Try this... http://www.moomba.com/bb/profile.php?mode=editprofile?action=avatar

Click on the "MyHome" link that is near the top right part of the window. From there click on the "Avatar" link and you should be prompted to add your thumbnail pic. The pic must be of a certain size (I think the max is 150x510).

Hopefully this helps.

First thing you want to do is use a photo program (ie photoshop or fireworks..etc) to resize the photo properly so it constrains proportions. size it to 150/150pixels

save the file as jpg or gif

Doing it this way will give you much better resolution than any other method.

After you resize the pic you will want to find a place to upload it to on the web. You have to do this because for the most part you cant upload photos to the board directly...plus if you host the photo somewhere else its their bandwidth and not the message boards that is being used.

anyone out there that has a pic of their boat they want resized and want help just email me I'd be happy to help...literally takes 2 seconds with the right software!
