Can someone please let me know how to post pictures of our new boat. It has 10 hours so far and lots of fun. It's pretty cool too. Lots of looks and comments!

shrink the image size on photo shop then upload it using the " manage attachments" button.

Lots of looks and comments!If you don't have a photo editing program like PhotoShop Elements 4.0 (http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshopelwin/) (at $90, one of the best buys around if you do ANY digital photography, IMHO), then you can download IrfanView (http://www.irfanview.com/) , which is free. In either of these programs, first change the resolution of the image you download from your camera to 72 pixels per inch, then set the size of the image to about 8 inches wide. When you save the image for uploading as an attachment, select the JPEG quality/compression to a low enough setting to get under the size limit that the TT Admin has set (149 k IIRC).

Even better, if you go to google and search for Microsoft PowerToys, there is a Image Resizer one that integrates into Windows that works awesome. And its free to boot :)

Or, all computers have a little program called paint. Open the image in paint, go to edit, stretch/skew, and put in a number under 100 in the top two boxes (same number in each box) and BAM the image is smaller. Free, simple, and no downloading!

Don't forget to save :)

Boatdad, How is the new X-15?? I have been eagerly waiting to see some pics and hear some more details about how you like the boat. I am in the market and have been debating between the X2 and X15.
