Not getting the pictures to enlarge and some appear to be panoramic and some squeezed. Tried wednesday evening. Would really like to see them. They look real good. Fred

You need to have adobe flash player installed on your computer. It's a free program that you can download. Hope this helps.

Says link is broken, can`t get the pictures.

Links are broken here too. The window pops up, but all pictures after "Photos from Lou's Pirro's Birthday Race" are broken link, all before work fine.

Hey folks,

I didn't have any problems viewing the photos on the ISRA website. However, I'll setup a gallery on OWH and upload the same photos. The file size is limited and will affect the photos quality.... in other words...they won't look as good as the ISRA website.

Hi Tony!

I can certainly increase the file size limits on the OWH gallery.

I'll set up an ISRA USA Gallery. It could do double duty - be there for OWH readers, and Casey is welcomed to either link to it or even embed it in the ISRA USA site.

I had trouble getting the ISRA site pics to load - it was taking forever... probably because the pics were squeezed full sized images, rather then lower res thumbnails.

I'm also working on a major overhaul of the OWH site, as well as the Gallery, which will make the Raceway Directory, Gallery, etc.. much more integrated with OWH & the forums - so a lot easier to find & use.

I was able to view them fine but like Paul said, they were very slow loading.


06-23-2011, 02:04 PM
Hey Paul!

So.. how is the weather down there? I'll look for the gallery and upload the photos as soon as I can.

Hi Tony,

I set up the ISRA Gallery & moved the ISRA Worlds & last years NE Champs (Lou's Birthday Race) into it.

I set up another gallery for this year's 2011 Champs. I increased the image size for the gallery to 640 & 1280, with thumbs still at 150. The 1280 should be about as big as anyone needs without scrolling around to count windings or laminations on arms (I hope!). :p

I was putting it mildly when I said the ISRA USA pic page was slow loading... it was still loading on my ancient Boeing surplus pc for about an hour, and that was after crashing Firefox on the last two attempts! :eek: :(

Casey - I know that must have been a ton of work to set up all those pics manually... but you outa make life easier & either use an automated program like Gallery (that's what I use on OWH), or maybe just put the OWH ISRA Gallery in a frame on your site (and I can give you a login also), or maybe Picasa or Photobucket gallery could be embeded.

I just use Gallery, and I have it embeded in the new OWH site (coming soon). One of the nice features of Gallery is, that it has an upload tool that lets you automatically upload entire folders, with hundreds of images - very fast & easy. For viewers it has all the usual photo gallery features, like slideshow, etc. The thumbnail pages really speed up the loading.

Anyway - here's the link to the ISRA Gallery:

Tony - let us know once you load the pics. :)

P.S. The weather here is HOT... always... but it also rains a LOT. At least when it rains it POURS for a few minutes, then it's sunny again! :)

Hey Paul!

Did you say...upload foldersr? Hallelujah!:):D

Thanks for the work. I'll post to this thread when I upload. Most likely I won't be adding captions.

Stay cool!

DOH! I thought you already knew about that! And after all the thousands of pics you've uploaded... :rolleyes: :o

Click on the Album (for now, the "no thumbnail" link), then click "add items", then click on the "Windows XP" tab. Download the Install Registry thingy & run it (only need to once). From then on you can open "My Computer" navigate to & select an entire folder with tons of pics, then select "publish this file to the web". You'll need to login to Gallery, then select the correct album... then hit "publish" and go get a cup of coffee. It's very fast & super easy! :)

Oh? I guess I wasn't paying attention.:sleeping:

Thanks Paul!

I have Adobe Flashplayer 10 is that outdated? I checked back on the ISRA just a little while go and the only pictures I can't get are from Lou's Birthday race. You have a problemo. Fred

06-23-2011, 08:46 PM
Photos are uploaded!

Paul, the upload applet worked very well.:)

Great pics Tony!

Here's a link to view them as a slideshow:

I couldn't figure out how to change the defaults... so I manually changed the controls at the top of the window to 1024x1024 and 5 seconds, and they showed up large and crystal clear on my screen.

Thanks once again, for sharing these great pics with all of us! :)

I can view all the pictures fine and I havent had any other complaints. I still think something may be wrong with your computer. What exactly is it doing when you go to the pictures page? Any error messages?

06-24-2011, 02:35 PM
There is for sure some kind of issue with downloading pics from the ISRAUSA web site,I get the little X in the upper left hand corner and no pic if that helps Casey,I did get the link Paul K set up to werk though Great job Tony M on the pics Nice meeting you too see you all soon FB
