    Please take pity on those of us with laptops and dialup connections and make your pics a little smaller. I have to scroll sideways to see most of them and it just takes away the pleasure of looking. :)

    I use tinypic.com and if you just leave the default size, it will give you these enormous pics, as I found when originally posting my thread about the Aldila and C-6.

    You can use the drop down box to select the message board size of 640x480 and that's really quite good enough to get a good look. You don't really need to have a gigantic image to appreciate its content.

    I agree... 800x600 is perfect. Anything larger is a bit of a pain.

    Here's a pic that is 800 pixels wide.

    How is this for size?

    it actually plays really nicely, not as nice as the ps 85, but still worth a hit.

    I have two of them. It's great for slices at the net and forehand ground strokes. Backhand requires a little bit more power to hit over the net.

    When you post there is an "Insert Image" button. In the little box that appears you enter the http:// URL of your image. If you have the image on your PC you first need to upload it to a site on the web. Many here use tinypic.com as it is free and easy and as Virginia points out there is a "message board" size option. You can then link as above to the image you've uploaded

    Cheers, Orig

    Personally, I prefer the larger size. Using Mozilla Firefox I never actually see the photos, all I get is the link. If it's a photo I want to see I'll follow the link. If it isn't, I just move on. That comes in very, very handy when people quote a post but don't stop to think that they're also quoting any attachments that might have been included.
