As expected, I received a quick responses telling me what I needed to know about posting civilized looking text formatting. Since I have no Blog or personal web space, posting my Activation Account here is my only current option.
I have some photo’s to accompany the text as well. It’s almost embarrassing how trivial an effort is needed to activate my 4 closest Summits combined, compared to some of the spectacular Activations documented here. But this is where I live, and the photos document that. Hopefully it can even convince some local limited mobility operators that not all Summits are beyond their reach…
So I looked into adding one test photo from the Activation to this existing post, to see how the process works. Of course the one photo I chose exceeds the 3072 KB site limit. A quick check indicates about 40% of my photos are a bit size excessive, but not by that much. The worst one is 3.5 MB. These are still exactly as taken by a simple digital camera that will fit in a front pants pocket. It was set to the highest file size setting, and I could always cut that back.
Several years back I did have a need to limit the file size of photo’s. I am sure I can track down that software again, but I do wonder how long it has been since the file size limit here has been reviewed for relevance. I assume the limit was not chosen on a simple whim, but is it still the best necessary choice?
I do see many magnificent photos here that obviously have managed to get below that limit, so this really is only a Photos By Dummies issue, and I am one. And I could use all the help I can get.
But if you say 3072 is still the best choice here, I will figure it out.
