That's rarely an option.

Which browser do you use?

You could go into Account:Site Settings:Forum Display and uncheck Display images within posts, and none of the images will load by default. Instead they'll display this: [ img ]

If you use Chrome, there's an extension called Hover Zoom, which you can install, and which will make it possible to put your mouse over the [ img ] and have each load automatically, one at a time, when you hover over it.

What? People can certainly be considerate without someone else needing to hobble access to one of the forums.

It's an image thread. People will post images in an image thread. Most people are probably on broadband and don't even know how big the images are in terms of size. And most people are going to be on broadband.

The only way for people to accommodate your request is to have them either not post images in the image thread, or to have them download the images and manipulate them and then reupload the images to somewhere they've found to reupload them.

I don't think that falls under being considerate. I think you're expecting everyone else to self-hobble their access to this topic because you might not have the best connection.

And really, using hover zoom would not make much of a difference in browsing this site for you. You might even be really happy with the result. I use hover zoom for sites like reddit, and it makes browsing there a hell of a lot easier, because I don't have to click image links to view them.

Most of these images are just posted somewhere on the internet and are not being downloaded.

Saying that people should use the Finder to check file size is like saying that people should go through the extra steps of choosing where to save the images, downloading them, checking their file size, resizing them, uploading to another site, and then posting them.

That takes a hell of a long time to do.

Or someone can take three seconds to right-click, copy URL, and paste into the text input box.

99% of the time, these images do not end up anywhere near Finder. Finder does not come into the equation.

Most people seem to have no problem uploading smaller sizes. I've been able to view this thread OK since I set up this access last March. This has only become an issue lately.

fiddlesticks it. I won't bother with the thread anymore then.

Most people aren't uploading anything.

The vast majority of posts in this topic are not images hosted on this server.

Sorry, I meant linking to smaller sizes. I use a free image server myself.
