I don't think it is unreasonable to resize photos to a sensible size to post on the forum. I always resize photos for Photobucket anyway, as it is much quicker to upload a 300kb photo than it is a 3mb one. HD quality is not needed on a forum - if you want a fine detail photo, email the owner to ask for one and I'm sure they would oblige. It's dead easy to resize - just open the photo, click 'save as', choose jpg and move the slider to 250-300kb and save to your desktop. Add to your posting and delete from the desktop. Well, that's on a Mac, anyway.

I'd have no problem at all with photos up to 500-750k being posted by members only - but I do think if it were possible for them to be only visible to members you would find it much easier to 'sell' this as a big advantage to joining the Club. Anyone wanting serious advice on building a car, or the history of the cars, would need to join. A nice halfway house between full open public access and a closed 'members-only' forum.

And up yours, Photobucket. Just to keep Nik happy.

Woohoooooooooooooooooo!

Now to go and edit all the posts I've ever made with photos in... Cheers Roger, for the support!
So if photos like mine above were 'public' view, but the clickable big pic was 'members only', that could be good?
I think I'm just getting over it now....

OK, here's one at 380k, which gets good enough if you click on it:
