1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Well, looking round, I've noticed two things: 1., this forum lacks that intraweb classic, the pictures of attractive women thread, and 2., I have a little collection with an average filesize of 5000 kb, some of which just begs to be shared.

    Also, given the more eclectic tastes of SFers relative to your average message boarder, I imagine the posts in this thread will be a good deal more interesting, or at least better quality, than one normally sees.

    In order to avoid this degrading into a porn fest terminating in several bans, let's please keep it nudity free.

    While thumbs might be more convenient, I find them rather clinical, so for aesthetic reasons I'll post direct unless this proves unworkable.

    Well, it seems to me appropriate to start this puppy off with an incarnation of Helen, though probably one somewhat shy of the legend:

    I just love the warmth of this image (I think it's a cap from some movie.) Ms. Sobieski is an underrated force of hotness:

    This one right here needs no introduction:

    I'll toss some more up in a bit. Please post your own favorites!

    For a moment I was confused as to why you thought these babes were old... then I re-read the title [​IMG]

    Jesus dude. Not that I don't appreciate high resolution (and these beautiful young women), but when I can't fit an image on my screen at 1920x1200, it's a bit too big to enjoy. And most people with normal monitors are going "Nice nostril."

    I wonder if I can find a vBulletin hack to autoresize images to browser size....

    I've been trying to resize them when I catch a ridiculously huge one, but I missed that one in the blue dress. The tricky bit is that I have to resize them by hand in Photoshop, since the Imageshack autosize thing would fuck with the aspect and give us distorted women. Which is no good.

    Try here if you don't have another program you can use. BTW, M@t showed me a cool trick where you use the "Send To..." to send them to an email, and Outlook Express can auto resize them for you, but I don't remember exactly how it's done.

    Edit: link would help.

    Edit again: I suggest an old or basic version of ACDSee for easy batch image manipulation.

    That is good to know about, but not much faster than Photoshop, I'm afraid. What would be incredibly useful would be some way to normalize the resolution of all the images in my folder as a batch, and then save these files to a subfolder.

    Anyone know of such a product?

    ED: Ah, read your ed. I'll check it out.

    Well, ACDS seems to be working quite well. In a few moments I should have a copy of my entire collection resized to 1200*1000 or less as aspect ratios require.

    Thanks for the tip j.

    Love the second one EM.

    It is definitely one of my favorites, for sure. I really don't collect pictures, but that one just jumped out at me. Definitely the best picture of Jennifer Connolly I've seen.

    I like the one where Keira's biting her lip. I find that hot.

    Proves that small breasts can be just as attractive as heftier ones.

    windows feature, not outlook feature....

    right click on any pic or group of pics -> send to -> mail recipient

    it will prompt you then to either keep images at full size or to reduce them to lower resolution, select reduce them

    then a new message window will appear in whatever-your-default-mail-client is with all the images as attachments in low resolution.

    then just copy and paste the pics out (depends on the program, in outlook copy n paste works, others drag n drop, others may have to save as a draft...u can figure it out)

    takes just a few seconds (rereading it makes it sound more confusing than it is), it resizes pretty quickly and pretty effectively.

    you can put this in your handy hints thread too J

    - Matt

    What can I say, I like skinny girls (great Keira pictures, btw).
