I posted my issue about the HUGE pictures that interfere with writing the building blog. Others have complained also. I detailed my thoughts in your forum support section, problems or suggestions. I also inserted a screenshot of what I see after I load the pictures. Difficult or impossible to edit.

Take a look and scroll through my Pica building blog or the Mustang Brotherhood thread. When you go through it, you'll see the impact of the style change of this new uploader.

The point is if you are posting one picture like a finished plane, then this is ok, But if you are doing a build and want to share a build over time, this style and the size of the pictures are a problem. Not user friendly.

Here's the screenshot after loading 9 pictures I had a typo in this sentence and it was tough to navigate in this post to edit it! That's the problem. The picture is tooo big. Much more of a problem if you have several pictures..

I consider myself a power contributor in the Pylon Universe forum.

The recent change to picture addition adds way to big a picture to my posts and makes them difficult to review. I store my pictures in low resolution mode and yet they get posted and take up half the screen width.

I liked it much better when I could upload pictures as attachments. I will probably stop using RCU Forums to post construction threads unless I can post as attachments.
I am assuming that this member doesn't like the HUGE pictures either????

Does this member like the new uploader also???

This is not a technical issue. This is the way the forum handles photos now. There is no thumbnail option. So, if you upload a huge photo, it will display huge. The workaround is to use a photo editor and downsize them before uploading them.
