@  bigears : (21 October 2017 - 03:41 AM) I have found if the initial reduction isn't enough just redo the process, its all relevant to your pictures original size .........
@  andynchap : (20 October 2017 - 01:43 PM) Ok, just gave it a go. Looks like you can't choose the final kb, but it does manage to reduce most of the pics to under 200kb if I set it at 800 wide. Similar to the program I showed you MattP.
@  bigears : (20 October 2017 - 12:14 PM) That's their take on their software I reduce my pics by 75% on average I let the program do its thing on average most of the pics I place here are reduce from 5MB down to 80KB and still great quality
@  bigears : (20 October 2017 - 12:09 PM) The program offers several different resizing methods to choose from and can automatically recognize image sizes to calculate the best fit. PIXresizer includes a built-in image viewer and you can also convert between graphics formats: it opens and saves in .bmp, .gif, .jpg, .png,and .tif formats.
@  bigears : (20 October 2017 - 12:08 PM) PIXresizer is a tool for quickly generating screen-friendly versions of your images with dramatically reduced file sizes. It is a photo resizing program that enables you to quickly resize one file or a selection of image files for use on the web and in e-mail. The reduced files are saved in a different directory, so your original pictures are not changed.
@  andynchap : (19 October 2017 - 02:34 PM) There are stacks of freebie photo resize programs, but 99% of them don't allow you to choose the final kb size. Does this PIXresizer allow you to do that?
@  MattP : (19 October 2017 - 10:28 AM) Hi Bigears I have used programs like that in the past but results have often still required manipulation for best outcome on the Shed.  Maybe I'll try the one you recommend.
@  bigears : (19 October 2017 - 10:17 AM) oops not finished .............. :frusty:   I use PIXresizer you can do single files or a folder with hundreds in seconds ............. I can send the program if someone wants it its around 4.8mb easy to use, must be I figured it out  :wacko:  an invaluable tool for lots of reasons not just this site   :cheers:
@  bigears : (19 October 2017 - 10:10 AM) Really   :confused:   its not that hard there is numerous third party picture resizing software out there easy to use and FREE !
@  MattP : (18 October 2017 - 10:24 AM) I agree Andy in one day I saw more interesting custom plates from NSW, Qld, Vic and ACT than in weeks of normal driving . . . also many interesting cars there.  Will post some over coming weeks as time permits.  I still haven't finished my Bash photo post  . . . .
@  andynchap : (17 October 2017 - 01:40 PM) It would be great to see them here too MattP. Car show/events are a great way to see a variety of plates.
@  MattP : (17 October 2017 - 07:01 AM) I might just send all my pics into the NPCC newletter editor and let him figure out if they're interesting enough to share.  They certainly present an interesting view of the current plate landscape here.
@  VIC-369 : (16 October 2017 - 10:52 PM) I don't know what the answer is but I understand your pain.  For the first few years of Plateshed the limit was 100kB as I remember.  :wow:  Write to Moz and ask him to review it.  However if your camera is making, say, 8MB pictures you won't be able to expect Plateshed to take them that big so you would still have to reduce them.  When I was taking lots of pics in my back yard for the Treasure Chest sale recently I set my camera to take low kB size pictures as I knew that would be easier to load.  However I can understand MattP not wanting to take low kB pics out at a major event.  :snapshot: What did you do at the Meeting yesterday John64?  Your camera looks like it would take huge pictures.
@  andynchap : (16 October 2017 - 11:33 AM) Wouldn't we all love to be able to do that. I'm sure lots of us don't post pics for that reason. :ohwell: 
@  MattP : (15 October 2017 - 03:05 PM) I took about 150 great plate photos at Eastern Creek yesterday including lots of interstate but I really don't have the time to go through and resize them all below 200kb to post on the Shed . . . time is too precious at the moment . . . wish I could just dump them on with less effort, sorry
@  daanton : (11 October 2017 - 11:22 AM) Hmm.... :?:  The last time I've seen used pl8s screwed unto a wall, it was a sidewall of a roadhouse at either Daly Waters or Oodnadatta—far away from coastal Qld, I'm sure!
@  MattP : (10 October 2017 - 08:20 AM) If you visit @coover make sure you take a screwdriver and someone to distract him while you unscrew some of his exceptional plates off the wall . . . .  :laughter:  :?:
@  coover : (10 October 2017 - 05:44 AM) Hey Leo, we're amost exactly halfway between Brisbane and the Gold Coast. Feel free to drop by for a cofffee and chat if you wish! More than welcome!!!
@  hoarder1 : (09 October 2017 - 03:07 PM) Thanks Hasman for the info.  Enjoy your Brisbane trip.  I feel like I need to drive an armoured tank when I visit parts of it too. 
@  daanton : (09 October 2017 - 09:16 AM) :auto:  CHRYSLER....  :auto:  FORD....  :auto:  HOLDEN....  :auto:  TOYOTA....
@  andynchap : (08 October 2017 - 06:33 PM) Holden - Holden - Ford     :auto: 
@  HasMan : (08 October 2017 - 05:57 PM) hoarder One - The Canberra meet is Sunday 29th October - Contact ACT coordinator for full details. I will not be there as I will be in Brisbane. Number one son gets to drive an armoured vehicle down Queen St that weekend in commemoration of the one hundredth anniversary of the Battle of Beersheba (see the move "The Lighthorsemen").   Sydney meet usually first Sunday in December.
@  hoarder1 : (08 October 2017 - 01:53 AM) Can anyone tell me when next NSW NPCC meet is on please?
@  daanton : (04 October 2017 - 11:24 AM) ALWAYS HAWTHORN :hawks: but after this year's Grand Final.... TIGERLAND :tigers: 
@  VIC-369 : (03 October 2017 - 06:40 PM) In the October NPCC Newsletter you should have found your 2018 membership renewal and you need to note that the fee for Aussies has gone up to $40  You can pay it in cash if you are coming to the Vic Meeting and I offer to take it via PayPal if that helps you and I will pass it on to King Knox.  If you are not an NPCC member or a lapsed one we encourage you to join up before Christmas. :santa:  :plates:
