Welcome from SoCal San Diego!

Search for a program on this site called PIXresizer

It will shrink them to workable sizes.

k think I figured how to convert to jpeg and save as Joey from here out. So I drove the truck some this fall, first time in nearly 20 years. Built a fairly angry 454 from stuff kicking around and she worked real well. Have tons of pics of the engine machining/build if youíre interested. I couldnít get a roller pilot bushing and installed a bronze one, probably a little too tight and didnít soak in enough oil cuz it trashed and took out my input and release sleeve/ bearing retainer. Made one up and still have input noise, figure the shaft is tweaked. Was going to order T-10 parts when something else came along...


MODS. WTH JPEG isnít even supported? I canít be bothered with a site that canít accept standard pictures.

Sorry guys, no Lenco, four link, tubbed action for you I guess.


Peace AS

JPEG is supported, as are several other file formats.  The file size is limited.  You can use any JPEG editor that can proportionally change/decrease file size while maintaining the aspect ratio of the image.

I had to email that to myself. Iím not doing that for 300 photos and counting. Itís sized for ants like 200kb was my only option under the limit.
