Default Arrangements!!!

well having seen a similar thread on another forum i thought it would be an excellent idea to do something similar here. Basically we post pics of our arrangements here for every one to see and get an idea of how we do stuff or how we can improve, i really think it would help the beginners such as myself to see where we could be going wrong or as a rough guide to laying a track out etc, well here is the arrange page and mixers to my latest project, iv pretty much colour coded my groups and placed the appropriate icon and title header for each track. the track this arrange belongs too is as follows:

Good call Sureno.. I'll get one uploaded soon too

One comment though, might want to make the image size just a tad bigger so all can really take a peek into these windows.. I'll speak with 'ndk' about an optimum size he'd recommend - luvvly jubbly

An though on images - if posting huge images - may be better using thumbnails?

If you use the "insert image" icon in the message editor and then enter the URL of an image you will see the entire full size image in the message.
If you scroll down to "Additional Options" and attach an image with "Manage Attachments" then the image will appear in the message as a thumbnail.

Here as usual to state the obvious just in case it is not obvious to some

Yes great idea.

I think thumbnails might be better as you could then get a full screen image (probably best for an arrangement screenshot).

When you add an attachment with "manage attachments" the forum will automatically make a thumbnail for you. You therefore do not need to add a thumbnail - you add the full size image as an attachment and the forum will display the image as a thumbnail.

Cross posted...(sorry) are you using imageshack to host the pics?...if so you should be able to avoid resizing the images and still be able to post them as thumbnails...or follow saxmans advice...I did something similar for the Extended Sonar User Review thread.

It can be a confusing kinda thing alright.

The image you are trying to attach is a .GIF image
.GIF attachments are limited to 97.7Kb in amount of data and 620 pixels width x 280 pixels height in size.

If you can upload a .JPG image instead you should have a happier time.
.JPG attachments are limited to 97.7Kb in amount of data and no maximum width or height.

However, .JPEG files have even worse limits that .GIF
.JPEG attachments are limited to 19.5Kb in amount of data and no maximum width or height.

You can convert .GIF to .JPG online here;

Ahhhh. I think I will use .JPG next time, I did not know there is no maximum width or height restriction.
