I am wondering if this is going to choke off those threads of photos taken by members.. traffic seems waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay greater in the old thread. Not sure how I feel about this subdivision yet.....

Number of Images

100... 200! I have broadband so it is not a technical probelm, but for goodness sake, folks, can't we cull things down and post images that are somewhat remotely relevant to "SkyscraperCity" -- ??

This is an urban photography forum, and not strictly photos of architecture. "Urban Showcase" is a pretty broad term. Most browsers have a red X that you can push to stop downloading if either there are too many photos or if they are not to your personal taste.

Thank-you Taller Better -- I understand. But still, 200 images -- some of which are dogs taking a crap and bikers flipping-off the person taking the picture... what's the point?

You are talking about one of the best examples of how to do a thread on Urban photography. Cities do not mainly consist of buildings, but of people.

idk, depends on the purpose/intention of the photographer. I personally like 'real situations', but there're many who like to watch shiny high-resolution pics like froma catalog

It is never possible to please everyone with these picture threads. You may have no interest in the cyclist, but the next person does. The key is to be your own censor, and click "back" once you realize you are not interested in that thread. The rules are a bit loose, and so far I have not seen many occasions where people abuse the privilege- uploading and posting photos is a lot of work, and by and large people are posting pretty good examples of their artwork. One thing I have found is if I have a lot of photos (say 40 or so) I break them into several entries... the quantity of material on one page seems to be controlled by the number of entries, not the number of photos posted at once. I agree that it can be irritating when you open a thread and the downloading goes on and on forever... if people do post too many photos at once, they are shooting themselves in the foot because most people, like myself, will just stop the download. Far better to spread out 100 pictures over a bit of time than to bombard them all at once.

Is the image alone by itself preferred over an enlargeable clickable thumbnail to save download time?

Hi Jesse.... it is more a matter of personal choice. Most people nowadays have high speed
connections, so downloading doesn't take too long.. or if their computer gets bogged down they can click to stop the downloading. It is best for people to limit photo size so as not to post massive pictures, as they take a long time to download!

I agree Taller, Better. I now have that problem with my thread as I am posting about 40 pics of Bristol, maybe a bit less every week day but not many people are replying but I can't post the pictures on different days and claim them as being on that day instead of the actual day they were taken on (if that makes any sense). I think the number of replies from other people in a thread would ehlp, just to spread the pictures out a bit. It's always a relief when the second page opens up and everything is suddenly lightning quick again.

It is totally depressing when there are no replies after posting all our hard work! LOL! One way of doing it is to break up the photos into a few, or a number of entries. The turning of the page appears to depend on number of entries, not amount of photos. You can always post pictures on different days, and just say you took them recently, or give a specific date. I wouldn't worry too much about posting them at a later date.
