I've had this problem for sometime now, both on here and ATPworld. Everytime I try and attach a picture, the bottom of the picture doesnt come out. I tried changing my browser to Netscape but that didn't work so I'm not really sure what the problem is

Here is what I mean:

Actually it looks as though it may have "timed out" before the picture was fully loaded. What speed is your modem? And what are you running on your sdram while you are doing this?

I found what seems to be the same pic on TheOneRing.net

I'm going to test it, see if it comes out all right for me...

Yes it does!

But have a look at the properties of your pic and mine (open the pic, right-click, choose "properties"): your attachement has a few more bytes than mine (1582 to be precise)... while being 1 pixel less in height!
Weird...

How does the pic look on your computer - and what are the properties there?



BTW: did you know you could show the pic in the thread just by linking to the site where it is shown? (Of course, when that site decides to remove the pic, it would disappear here too, while an attachment would stay...)

Hmmmm my picture is exactly the same but it does not have the "Brought to you by: The One Ringnel."

I can see it ok on my computer, its just when I attach it the problems happen.

It says it's 51.8 KB (53,054 bytes) and its archived but thats about it on the properties side. I normally just post the links for the pictures, but its just sometimes I may have to attach pictures and it just won't work.

Your latest attachment is 55,175 bytes, a few thousand bytes more than on your comp! This is very weird indeed.

Like Barrie_Dude said: it looks like a kind of time-out. But your modem cannot be the problem: a bandwidth of 1 Mbps (megabits per second) is what I have also; there are higher speeds, but it should be more than fast enough.

SDRAM = Synchronous Dynamic Random-Access Memory (I looked it up). It's the type of internal memory most computers work with today (although it's slowly being replaced by DDR, "Double Data Rate"). I think what Barrie was asking is: what other programs are you running while posting the attachment? I suppose that, if too many programs are running in the background, this might be responsible for a (too) slow transfer of data...

I'm sorry, Californication, I can't come up with any other explanation.



But I can suggest a solution, albeit not a very satisfying one.

If you're only having trouble attaching bigger pictures, make them smaller first. There are different programs you could use to do that, but beware: some programs may store your smaller pic using more bytes! (Microsoft Photo Editor does that - I guess it stores it's jpg's with a not very efficient compression.)

(If you have a recent version of the basic Paint-program, one that can store files in jpg-format, you could use that. Open your Pic.jpg in Paint, press ctrl+e and reduce the height and width values proportionally - then save the resulting pic under a new name.)

Try to attach the smaller file.
If it still comes out warped, you could again reduce it...till you get an intact one. After some experimenting, you may find out how many bytes your attachments may have without being damaged...

I know: it's not really a solution.

Thanks for the help, Lynx!

Hmmmm... well I looked at my task manager and looked at the processes being run and there seem to be alot.... but I don't really want to end any of them becuase my computer may end up going funny on me or something lol

I guess I will just have to go with the solution of just re-sizing the pictures for the time being.

But what I can't seem to understand that I've never really had this problem till now and I havent really added anything new to my computer or anything, the problem just happened to occur one day.
