A 748KB picture is not an issue. The picture below was 1.2 Megabytes to begin with and resized appropriately via the forum. The forum will resize large pictures for you. I've still not received any original pictures from you via email. If you would send me just one then I could probably figure out what the problem is. I wrote the system that this forum uses to resize images so I can fix the problem or help you fix the problem if it is on your end.

Another issue is that the image you upload don't get the little thumbnail created and that is a symptom I also would like to resolve.

I know what the problem is. The images that you are uploading are .bmp pictures and the forum is converting them to jpg. That is why the thumbnail isn't working. You need to make sure that when you save your images from the image program that you are choosing high quality jpg. Even if your images have a .jpg extension on them, they really are .bmp files and the forum is detecting them properly as .bmp files.

If you still can't figure out why you are generating .bmp files, I've still made a change on here that should allow your images to appear larger if you wish to try uploading them again.

Freddie...you are my hero. I am very impressed that you know how to do all this. It may be easy for you, but it would be impossible for almost any of us.

This has been my job for 6+ years now so I have a lot of experience with it. I also wrote the attachment system so it is what I know best.

Rob did you figure out how to output your images as jpg? The image images that you uploaded in the last message are still bitmap.

If you can't, I'll see about putting a small hack that will convert all .bmp files to .jpg when they are uploaded.

Are you sure the card was not just kept poorly. The whole card looks darker then it should. I often see cards listed that they came from a smoke and pet free home. Maybe this one came from a cigar parlor with pets that enjoy licking cards!

just kidding,

The card looks fine to me in the first picture. The second picture looks dark but that is due to the scan.

Do we wish to start listing cards by ink color?

What about the 1999 Skybox Autographics?? We list both ink colors there??

freddie

We do? Ok then, but that is only because blue is numbered to 50.

Dont get started on those Skybox cards! I bought a few of them trying to get the correct color ink versions. I don't have any extras anymore though. But I couldn't get any that wasn't blue! The only difference on the stupid cards was that one was numbered to 50 and the other wasn't.

But as I was interested back then to try and get other colors if they were out there I am also looking to get a card like Rob has in black. So in my opinion it would need to be listed so that we are aware of them.

List the colors that you know of.

What I'm say is both Skybox's are blue. Why they list them the way they do in beckett as well as here made me think that there were others that were not blue! I think colors only need to be listed if there are more then one color made/available.

freddie

Well if one is numbered and one isn't then both variations should be listed I would think.

That is my card on the scan and it is definitely black.

We are talking about Skybox so I assume you're referring to the card at the top?

Perfect, now that you have it working great, there are so many cards that only you have that you can upload pictures for.

I can generate you a list of those cards if you like.

yes, they should. But why Beckett calls one Blue ink and not the other is beyound me.

I have three versions of the Autographics card for Jimmy Smith: black ink, blue ink numbered to 50, and un-numbered blue ink. I have heard that the un-numbered blue ink cards were unused replacement cards that Fleer sold after its bankruptcy. There seem to be too many un-numbered blue ink cards of Juan for that to be entirely the case, but it wouldn't surprise me if all three versions do exist.

I just found a pic of a black ink Autographics at this guy's site:
