What do I need to do to post pictures
First, make sure the picture you are trying to post is smaller than 190 KB or so. Then, click on "Upload Attachment". A new window sill open up, find your picture using the "browse" feature, then click "open", then "upload".
Pics need to be 190Kb or smaller. You need to log in with a username and password to post those whopping big 190kb photos.
Make sure your cursor is sitting on a line by itself then click on the "Upload Attachment" button at the bottom of every message. A new small window will appear - click on "Browse" to go find the photo on your computer. After you've selected your photo click on the "Upload" button at the bottom of the small window. After that, click on "Close" and you will be taken back to the screen with your message and you will see a line of text added that looks like jibberish but that coding will show your photo.
Now all you have to do is click on the "Preview/Post Message" button. This will show your new message. At this point it would be a good idea to go over the message and correct any spelling mistakes (which most people apparently don't) and then click on one last button - "Post This Message". It's as easy as sitting in a mud puddle!
Rainy day here...if you have time to do some reading, here are some links courtesy of the great scribe "Hap"
Welcome to the forum! Just like Ts the electronic computer stuff is easy once you discover a few of the tricks. And the folks here are a big help at sharing how to get them posted etc. One of the most common reasons the photo will not post is it is too large a file. The book answer is it needs to be less than 200kb(kilobytes) just that the photo needs to be that or less. I shoot for less than 190 kb because sometime my computer says 200kb but the site says it is over the limit. For posting photos see:
And if you find someone locally (when my daughters were home as teenagers they were a great help) who can walk you through it once it is much easier after that.
Also if you have not checked for a body number or manufacture letter on your cars – especially the 1915 please take a look at: “Home for the Holidays” at: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/29/40322.html and let me know if you find any numbers or letters.
And if you would like a photo posted – if you send it to me I will gladly try and resize it and post it for you or e-mail it back to you. If you click on my name it brings up my profile and my e-mail address is the third line down. Please put Model T in the subject line -- as it will be read much sooner.
Again thank you for all your support to our hobby over the many years and welcome to forum.

If you take photos with a digital camera/phone, they will be HQ and too large and "dense" for the site- too much "data".
I have Windows 7. When I view a photo I have stored on my hard drive, I click "Pictures" and then double click the pictures I want. When the photo comes up in the viewer, right click and then click "Resize" on the menu. It will ask for particular resizes- but the stock choices are still too big, so click on "Custom" and enter a size. It will keep the original as it makes a resized copy- marked with (Small). Use that "small" copy as you follow the instructions to post pictures here. I find that "300x225" works well enough to post here. One can always email full resolution pictures to those who request them.
This is 340x225.
This is 805x559, which was as big as I could make it without going over 194KB. I find that sizing to 194KB makes the maximum file size I can use here. Later my software reads it as a higher number, but as long as it wasn't over 194KB when I resized it there's no problem.
I'm not very smart. I use a Mac so I don't have to deal with left and right clicks.
Here you go mike
