I'd have to re-upload them to my computer to do that, I can't make them that small on my phone... But hey, 3 other people also have my photos if they want to put them up

Huzzah! and Congratulations!

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Benjamin Franklin, 1775

"A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies."  George Washington 1790

“[T]o preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them…”

Congrats, Ron! Thanks for taking up a bigger bucket.  :F


JandD, reduce the size of the photos to less than 100K...

FYI, photos don't have to be quite that small. A few megabytes is fine. The practical limit is size in pixels; 1024 x 768 is the largest size that the forum will display without shrinking it down. If you get too much bigger, the forum will reject it entirely.

Most phones and cameras take pictures so large that you could fill a billboard with them, so they're way too big (and unnecessary) for the forum.

I am proud of my friend, Ron.  He worked really hard preparing and it showed.  He will have many successful shoots and will pass his skills along to many grateful students.  Hoorah and Huzzaa for Ron.
If you are not happy doing what you are doing... it's time to change what you are doing!

Yeah, I intentionally took 108mp pictures of when the hat was being awarded... But here's another from the day
