why oh why do people insist on posting massive images to the bb?
how many times before you learn?
did your parents not love you enough?
are you 'special' people?
do you have to keep getting new trousers from the free shop?

What you need to do is something like this:

cp my_big_fat_greek_jpeg.jpg web.jpg
mogrify -scale 500 web.jpg

which makes a copy of your big image, and then scales it, so that it is no more than 500 pixels in its largest dimension. Walah.

But given that not everyone is gonna use mogrify, there is a package for ubuntu called nautilus-image-converter that you can install via synaptic package manager. Resize your images with just a click before you upload them. If someone gets a chance, install this on the forest's computers.

Once the package is installed you need to logout then login again (or run "killall nautilus") and from then on you can right click on an image or images in the file browser, choose resize images from the menu, then you get this:


Oh, P.S., this Golden Hour lineup is fab.

I've had it with you. If I had an image of a laser gun I would absolutely position it right here in my hand...
Ha! I have a real laser absolutely positioned in my hand!
