Sounds kinda ordinary until the background is mentioned, the black cloud sky from a storm having just passed.

    Second prize goes to a friend from Jersey City who recently passed. He went to the Armstrong Tower in Alpine and waited for just the right moment, and jumped......
    up and took this photo of a rare blood moon.

    Armstrong tower would have the empire state building in the foreground. That looks more like the view from Jersey city

    I had a new version from the back yard minus antenna before the rain came back but for whatever reason the system won't upload any phone photos. I haven't tried putting the pics into the PC and going in that way yet.

    Probably the file size is too big, or the dimensions of the photo. Try editing it to be smaller (1280 x ??? depending on ratio). I'll look at the upload file size limitations later. Very large photos will "blow up" the formatting in an entire page of a thread!

    100Kb seems to ring a bell, though that may be wrong.

    Current attachment settings

    Current attachment settings from the control panel. May need adjusting, will ponder this.



    I recall adjusting the .jpeg and .jpg file sizes and dimensions upwards some time ago. Cell phone camera photos are usually much larger than 800 x 600, which is probably causing the issue. 250,000 bytes is a pretty high resolution for a jpg sized at 800 x 600.

    BTW - the above image is a .png (portable network graphics) file, 21,283 bytes, 640 x 297. The 800 pixel width limitation seems to make sense.

    Could be, the tower was the plan, but a blood moon like a harvest moon rises quickly and turns into an ordinary white moon. Maybe he figured he'd miss the opportunity by the time he got there. Anyway, I used to go submarine race watching atop the Palisades, but I lost my bearings when they took the big red RCA sign off 30 Roc.

    That must be it, although it's from the same phone, in the same yard...

    Oh well, nothing to see. Moving along...

    Not knowing anything about web pages/message boards, is it possible to have some "software" in the background of the board to automatically resize photos that are deemed too big?
