Recommended Posts

You need to upload them to a website or image server first. Then just enter the address into your post in this form...

That works well, but any idea how to ge the size of the pciture to be shown to be shrunken down when viewing? The reason i ask is, that i already took MS Photo Editor and resized my picture to a 2"x3" size, roughly about 400 x 300 pixels. i uploaded the picture to a photo site. Using the aforementioned way to post a picture, file, the picture is larger than i hope for viewing pleasure. Because the file is smaller, when expanding it, the view of it distorts the image some. Doing some research, here is the code i used to try to assign a height and width to the file:

<img src=”http://im1.shutterfly.com/procserv/47b3cf01b3127cce8224b000dee10000001610” height=”480” width=”321”>

However, this does not render the image at all (you can obviously see the language, thus the picture is not showing up.)

I also tried:
<img src=”http://im1.shutterfly.com/procserv/47b3cf01b3127cce8224b000dee10000001610.jpg” height=”480” width=”321”>

includes the .jpg to the file, but again it does not work.

Let me know if anyone knows any hints how i can represent the picture within its right pixel size for no distortion!

Any Comments?

I followed up with an IS guy here at work and he mentioned that its possible the forum sets its own control on displaying images, and that typical HTML will not work on the site. The method that is used file allows to show an image, but not get mixed up in the html of the FM site itself. Does anyone know any truth to this?

Thanks for your help and clarification, this is helping!

Does shutterfly allow hotlinking?
Go to your web hosting site and right click on the picture then properties. Copy the address then add that with the brackets and img. Before you add your pictures to your web hosting site the should be down sized. 300x 400 is huge and will take for every to load not to mention what it will do to the forum. There should be an option to lower the pixels with your software. Get it down to under 50 kb.

i actually have the image loaded under the ice fishing forum right now:
...and you can see how large it gets displayed.

I believe shutterfly is like the sony image site that has been referenced by others. Shutterfly is where the image is pulled from. I actually uploaded that picture to Shutterfly, after resizing it as a 2.5" x 3" photo, which i think would decrease the pixels, right?

Also, the pictures on the above forum i did put on are about 34-40kb, so size-wise, they should be ok.

Thanks so much for getting back to me, i appreciate it!

You would actually like them down to about 10 KB. However, if you get them below 25 KB you should be ok.

anything above that has the potential to be too big.

      On the south end... Ice roads and ice trails are extending out on Lake of the Woods looking to connect with schools of walleyes and saugers.  Some ice roads are out as far as 24 miles.   The subzero cold snap is good for extending ice into March, but it was tough on the bite.  Once the weather started warming up, so did the bite.   Most anglers report picking through numbers of small fish to catch eaters, slot fish and some true trophy fish over 28 inches. Depths vary depending upon outfitter based on where they are fishing, but as a rule, 32-36 feet has been the norm.  The morning / evening bite for walleyes in shallow water,16 - 19 feet, has been active for some. Jigging a lipless crankbait with vibration and rattles has been working well to catch some fish and also draws other fish into the area you are fishing.  Some fish in more of a neutral mood will slide over and take interest in your deadstick, a live minnow just off of the bottom. As a rule, glow and bright colors during cloudy days, the golds and silvers during sunny days.   A mixed bag for many being reported, including walleyes, saugers, jumbo perch, eelpout (burbot), pike, tullibees and even a few sturgeon and crappies.   On the Rainy River...   The golden hour (beginning and end of the day) continues to be the best on the river for those fishing for walleyes and saugers.  Some good reports this week. Some sturgeon have been iced at night by those hunting dinosaurs.   Ice conditions can vary on the river as there is current, work through a resort or outfitter for safety.   Up at the NW Angle... Resorts up at the Angle are hard at work staying on the walleyes.  As a rule, 24 - 30 feet of water is the norm.   Similar to the south shore, using a noisy, more aggressive lure has been effective, as has a jigging spoon tipped with a piece of minnow.  Work the jigging line in one hole with a deadstick and a plain hook a foot off of the bottom in your second hole.   Many eater walleyes caught this week with a variety of other fish in the mix.  Some anglers fishing the Ontario side for crappies are finding some nice slabs. Driving through Canada to the Angle no longer requires vaccinations or the use of the ArriveCan App. For those looking to access the Angle while avoiding customs, snowmobiling across the lake on the marked trails or utilizing the Lake of the Woods Passenger (bombardier) Service are best options.  Fish houses are out through March 31st, walleye and sauger season through April 14, pike season never closes.

      Visitors to Minneopa State Park may soon notice fewer trees near the waterfall area of the park. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will remove 20 trees from the area, including 17 ash trees, beginning Feb. 6.Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I can confirm that I have 3-4 bars the entire drive from Cook to The Landing. When I winter park at a cabin near CigarGuy, I get two bars way up on the hill but still through the trees. There is good reception out on the lake but I haven't exactly been riding around and pulling out my phone to check my cell reception.   Depending on where you are, you may have 4 bars or none. I have none still, but that's because I'm on the north side of a hill with tall trees between my cabin and the tower.

      Something else to just keep in mind here now too is that the deadline to remove permanent overnight unattended shacks is in exactly one month in the southern 2/3 of the state - March 6.  Plan ahead and don't let your castle get stuck out there beyond the deadline.  The DNR can and will confiscate it on site because I know people who have experienced this.

      I heard Green lake by Princeton has plowed roads and truck and castles out there. I will swing by to check it out. Please check the ice conditions for yourself. There is 4-6 inches if slush ice so take that off your totals as that is not very strong.
