Y’all need to scale down your images using the procentage until it looks good and fits on your monitor. When you do that, it’ll look good and fit on any monitor regardless of size.
Or you could just keep uploading humongous images and annoy the hell outta DBCstm some people :bigsmile:

Or you could scale your images before uploading them to your host site, many image hosting sites have this ability, anything 600 to 800 pixels wide would do fine.
There is the provision of scaling the image in the insert image dialogue box, 100% will fill the page width 100% without over-running the page borders.

Man, y’all really need to figure out the picture scaling thing!

I have a 24” Pro monitor, the images are way too big for the 1920 pixel screen. Can’t imagine what others see, especially the tablet and phone users.


Everything seems okay on my iPad. Dales pics are big, but they fit on my screen okay without dwarfing the text. Anything bigger than Dales (DBCs example) make it unreadable.

Yours are the biggest pictures in this thread!

Mine are set at 62% of available screen size through BLF. I usually use a 1600 × 1200 size that can be viewed at the larger size by clicking on it.

I set most of my photos posted here on BLF to 60% width. Sometimes with cropping you get odd aspect ratios, so the final arbiter is how it looks on the screen, and I’ll edit any posts after the fact. That being said, the huge photos don’t really bother me, even if I do have to move the mouse half a foot just to scroll the whole picture Wink

Just that there will be many who can’t see the pic properly.

If it interests me I move around in it or open it outside BLF. Otherwise I pass it by.

This is how I’m viewing the thread. iPad screen shot.

Daleshot

How come they’re ok on my small screen, but not on yours? And how come mine appear smaller than Dales on mine, but bigger on yours.
Really, sorry, but I’ve been judging size bye what I’m seeing on my screen.

No worries, there’s nothing to be sorry about! To answer your question, the pictures also look fine on my phone; the images only look bloated on my desktop. It might have something to do with how my desktop web browser handles the page borders and scaling in comparison to mobile devices. But as DBCstm said, I find it amusing more than anything.

Ouchy, is the clip actually integral with that liner? The ultimate deep carry, the way that’s made, for sure!
Cool knife, unique on the ray skin insert. I have a ray skin that I meant to make a phone case out of and never have. Interesting use of that here for a grip panel.

The clip isn’t integral, but might as well be. It is removable.
All the Mcusta knives I own have these type of pocket clips.

Lovely knife, I’ve always liked Mcusta’s designs.

That looks very robust, where do you recommend having a look at Mcusta knives?

Basically just google Mcusta and all the big US knife sellers will pop up. If I could get US prices, I’d have whole basket of them.
Here’s a link for Japanese knife direct.
Unfortunately, all the nice ones are sold out, but it’s a great place to see all the models and material options. Lots of choices in handles. If you find one you like, then you can search around.

EDIT: my mistake. The pocket clip on the Stingray is integral.

I spent a good part of the afternoon at Japanese Knife direct and saw some phenomenal knives. Now I have to forget I saw em.

Here's an inexpensive knife that gets my seal of approval.

CRKT HEIHO

Really nice micarta scales.

Fast fast "outburst" assisted opening with a razor sharp elongated tanto blade.

Deep carry pocket clip.

This knife is a razor.

Edit: I just checked, and the new ones have G10 handles instead of micarta. My Heiho is AUS8, but the new ones are 8Cr14Mov.

Not busting on any owners. But the one I had rusted if it heard water running. I will never own another CRKT
