A Reminder for Vintage Bulletin Posters about images -

I like to keep at least 15 recent posts on the first page. There is an archive for old posts too, so your posts will be saved forever. Since so many posts show on the front page, we need to keep the page loading time in mind. Otherwise people will get frustrated and not come back to the blog.
You can post up to 6 photos. You can make collages with multiple items in each photo, but please only 6 total photos/collages.

Please keep the images of single items around 350 pixels wide and collages under 650 wide. Please keep file sizes around 75K or less.
PhotoScape is a great free photo editor that can help you change the actually image size and most importantly the file size for quick loading.
The best thing to do is to upload your images to blogger. In the editor, just click on the little photo image next to spellcheck to upload your images. That way, the photos are automatically resized, they will be stored in your post forever, and they won't take up space in your own photo storage.

Please be sure to include a link to your website in every post. Please check any links that you post.
I don't have the time to check and edit every post. In future, any posts with large, too many or slow loading photos will be removed until you edit them using the guidelines above.

You need to post at least once a month to remain a member, because there is a limit to the number of members, set by Blogspot. We've reach that limit so as I get more requests for people to join, I'll have to start deleting non-posters.

Thanks, Carol
