I wasn't for sure how these would look. Here is a little more of my basement. Oh, the globes on the pool table... i don't have a shelf yet for them and that's not where they sit. I just put them in there for the picture.

Most digital cameras have software bundled with the camera that can crop and resize the images. Or, there are a number of under $100 image editing programs like Photo Impact that you can buy. Photoshop and Macromedia Fireworks are used by most pros but they are expensive and Photoshop takes a while to learn.
Your image is over 1600 pixels wide and over 1000k (a megabyte) in file size. One of the most popular computer screen sizes is 600 x 800. Because of scrollbars and toolbars, there is actually much less than that left as viewable space on the browser. 360 x 480 is a nice size that most users can see without scrolling and can usually be a much smaller file size for quicker transfer for dial-up users. File size can be adjusted by adjusting the compression on jpg images. 80% compression gives a nice sharp image that is much smaller file size than 100%(no compression).
Your images don't have an extension like .jpg, .gif or .png. If you don't include the appropriate extension in the file name, many browsers won't know how to display it.
Hope that helps,

Your host and moderator

Ok, Gary Drye started it with a request from Dwaine to post some collections. Mine is as simple as they get! All common stuff but the fun was getting it and showing it and talking to you guys and other in the hobby about it. I even had fun trying to post pictures and playing with my new camera as you all could see. Bring on the collections! common, rare, just one pump post it for us to see.

Great room! Is that a Seeburg 222 next to the sofa? Nice variety in your collection.

And you have only been collecting two years! Better hurry up and get that barn ready for more stuff. Great collection John.
