This faq is for the Broadband Photo forum
Post your digital pictures of Remote terminals, Central offices, cable head-ends, DSLAMs, or whatever as long as its your picture and its broadband related..
Also...56K users...beware. There are a lot of hi-res images that will take a while to load!
Please post home setups in this forum Home setup forum
How big should the pictures be?
Typically for this forum, the pictures end up being very high resolution, and take up the whole screen. This is acceptable, however we'd like for the file size of the pictures to remain small. If you are posting a thread full of pictures, try to keep the total amount of picture file size under 2 Megabytes.
Do I need to host my own pictures?
No, you don't - you can upload them right here with your post, up to 16 pictures at a time. And if you still have more you can simply reply to your thread with 16 more! Also uploading them here will have them thumbnailed if they are larger than 640x480.
