Title: Hardware Storage
Post by: bobberner on July 18, 2017, 09:20 PM
I've got a crowded shop and am constantly moving something to get to something else. Anyone else get tired of alway moving stuff?? Anyway my hardware containers were always in the way so I built a little cabinet to store them in. This freed up a large chunk of counter space and also gave me another horizontal surface to set stuff on. It is the same height as my systainer stacks and also on wheels. A must for small shops. The Harbor Freight bins are sitting on some 1.5"x1.5"x1/16" aluminum angle. Sorting and organizing screws, washers, nuts, and bolts is good therapy.

Don't know, happens to me too. I've tried removing the pic, rotating the copy on my computer and saving with a new name, then uploading again and it still comes out on its side. The rotation information must be embedded in the photo.

It is too big. The forum software has a problem with really large pictures. Resize it and then try re-posting. That is the most common cause.

Do you know what that break point is so we can resize to within that limit?

Hi,

  Sorry, no, but reducing to about 1/4 of that size will probably still fill most screens. It doesn't always work but most times it will. Perhaps @TylerC   or  @Peter Halle  can provide some additional info.

Ideal size is about 1600 pixels on the longest side. Just about the same as you would place pics on Ebay.

On the photo size question, I found a freeware called Image Resizer for Windows that add an option to the right click window. works like a charm:

[attachimg=1]

Native photo from iPhone 6 1.28MB:

[attachimg=2]

Resized to Small 57KB:

[attachimg=3]

Definitely a reduction in quality but seems fine to me for this use.

Yes, I use that all the time since MS removed their image
resizer after XP went away. Don't know what they were
thinking as that was really handy and worked very well.

At any rate the app you suggest is a very good Rich.
