I would also add to that exclusion list photos that look like they should be painted on black velvet. (over-saturated photos)

Evidently a lot of SPers have black lights thoughout their homes.

Sounds like me dog! :lol: He's extremely cute, but is not the brightest dog. Especially when it comes to begging for food that he actually doesn't like.

The second photo you posted even though it 's a great photo there are two reasons it doesn't have a ton of votes.

1. The member is inactive
2. The photo resolution is semi low

Now it certainly won my vote, but these two factors always play a roll even with some of the best photos posted on this site.

Josh, it's funny you posted that Cho-oyu photo, I looked at it and opted not to post it. But now that you did and I've taken a second look, nice choice, I agree.

Directions for the above. Click on the photo, the photo page will come up, click on the photo again so as to have only the photo. Copy the url and go to the reply screen on the thread and click on "img", paste the url to the "img". Then go back to the photo and hit the back button so that you are on the photo page. Paste the url for the page and go back to the reply screen and press "url" and paste the url to the url. That will then give page detail. I open 2 seperate SP screens to do this, there may be an easier route but that's how I have done it.

Tabs is the way to go. Don't be fiddling with going back and forth. So all I have to do is copy the "Page" url of the image (go to this forum page and paste it in), click the original photo and get that url, and paste it into this thread with the appropriate tags. I keep a separate tab open for this forum post. :) This way it takes less than a minute (if SP is running at full speed). :wink:
