TORn Image Posting Guide


Everything You Wanted to Know About
Using Images at TORn

 

 

 

NOTE: A lot of the info on this site is useful regardless of whether you are on a Mac or PC or whether you use Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Safari. But not all of it is pertinent to Macs, especially Mac users running Safari. If you can't get something to work with Safari, it probably is due to your browser not interfacing with TORn rather than your doing something wrong.

I can't help much with Mac issues but there are people who can on the boards. If you're looking for Mac advice, post a request for help in Feedback.

Using the Online Image Resizer's procedures for resizing images was an arbitrary one on my part. You do not have to use this site and my using it as an example should not be taken as an endorsement of the site by myself or by TORn.

We use Preview to zoom out (reducing pixel x pixel size) and a Freeware application from the Apple site called SnapNDrag  to take a snap shot of the reduced image. With SnapNDrag you can view and change the KB size before you save the image but it is a little clunky having to take a new snap shot. The thing we like about it is you can do screen captures from almost any source.

There is also a Shareware application from Apple called EasyCrop that lets you drag a photo into it and resize pixel x pixel and KB size but I'm not vary familiar with it. When we looked into it you could try it out free with a watermark on the cropped image. I'm not sure what the fee is to purchase it.
