Default How to get images to your BB

Please Login to Remove!

Hello-

Since T-Mo won't let us attach images to emails, I made a little script to simplify transferring them via the web.

http://www.comfx.com/g.php

Make sure you read the SECURITY WARNING at that link.

Everything is explained there.

I hope someone finds this useful - I know I did.

Looks good to me - you might also want to put a disclaimer regarding offensive materials such as child pronography etc, especially if this is your box.

Thanks for the page

Bratag, thanks. I added "all pornography" to the disclaimer.

canesfins, the width is around 243 px, but if the image is taller than that, the BB will center it on the background.

When I upload the image and then go to the link on the 7100 it says the page is too big for the device. When I try to re size on the site it gives errors and the picture does not show up in the link provided. Is there re size program that you recommend?

If you have BES, you could always turn on IIS in XP and run an intranet that publishes photo web pages... Many tools do this turnkey and can even resize it. Look at Google's Picasa http://www.picasa.com/picasa/

Default Images to the 7100t

Nice little application. Thanks.

Anyone find any shortcut to adding more than one image. Like saving the
link address and then just changing the file #?. I have tried saving as a bookmark but it only brings the previous image up w/o the ability to insert the next image that I've saved.

Maybe I'm missing something.

Regards,

Lou

BTW: A good image size is 240 wide x180 high

That fits right into the bottom portion of the screen...

Are you guys using these pictures as your background? Do you not find it distracting/busy with all the icons all over it?

We really need a nice repository of cool background images... esp for those of us graphically challenged...

The screen is 245 pixels high and 240 pixels wide. The top 65 pixels are covered by the stuff at the top, so the area for your photo is the lower 180 pixels. If your photo is too dark, I find that using a tool like Photoshop to reduce the opacity to 50% makes both the image and the icons clear. If the opacity is too high, they tend to blend together.

I set up a gallery with three images I have (one a grid I used to find out what space was available and two of La Paz). The images are the correct size so if you go with your BB 7100 you should be able to save any image directly to your phone.

I set the gallery so anyone who wants to can upload additional images. We'll see how goes, but for now it is open. Don't post any in approriate images, etc, etc. You know the drill.

The url is bb.jim.mcintosh.name
