I thought it would be interesting to see people's loco collection I imagine some may be harder to photograph than others due to the size of the collection 20210402_182244.jpg 20210402_182252.jpg

Greg, I think you have a derailment problem on level 2. :eek:

That car is too long to fit normally, so angled it. That cabinet us usually used for 40-50' cars. (one of 5).

I need to make another cabinet, and that space will get 3 more locos.

OK. As long as it's not the result of unskilled reverse parking like at the supermarket. :giggle:

The pic posting problem appears to be file size. In theory there has always been a size limit although I must confess this has not always been apparent and I have not encountered many problems posting full size pics, so I have tended to ignore it. When I experimented, not having been able to post the other day, by reducing the file size, I am able to post. I'm guessing there has been an unannounced tightening up on picture file size. It just goes to prove guys, size really does matter.

Thanks David, that used to be an issue long ago but for a good long time not so. I had thought that the update on my other iPad had screwed things up but the one I am using now has refused a pic this morning and it is not now capable of taking an update so there must have been a software revision somewhere within the forum sphere of operations.

Any chance of a Mod commenting please?

before posting a picture, it would be wise to check the "size"

Unfortunately this is often misunderstood, since there are really TWO "sizes" for a picture...

first, the "physical size" in pixels.... the number of "points of color" in the horizontal and vertical dimension... this affects how "big" it appears on the screen...

next, which is probably the issue here, is the "storage size", i.e. how much memory is consumed storing and presenting the picture... often there is an upper limit to preserve storage on a forum, and it takes longer to display....

further complicating this, is you can "scale" the appearance of a picture, so the "physical size" looks smaller, but the "storage size" remains the same.

get the properties of the picture for BOTH of these values.... since I have seen very "wide" pictures on this forum, I'm pretty darn sure the "storage size" is the issue....
