iflabs: Are you using a tripod? Otherwise the shots are good starters. I think if you tried a tripod the shots would be much sharper.

Secret;)
No, they are just spots created by photoshop, i found very tiny dirt or dust spots in the bottom and i was lazy to remove them, but i found them look like tiny stars so then i added different spots sizes by photoshop.

Good work on the camel there Tareq, although you might want to get rid of some human hair present in the picture.

I just asked that adopted boy in our house to bring his toys and so, and i didn't even think to make them clean or clear, only to try my lights on them for this thread.

Sorry, those don't work either. Are you making sure that each image is no larger than 100K, JPG, and around 800x600 or thereabouts?

Hmm...the only way I can see to get them within these specs is to pretty much destroy them (quality wise) in Photoshop. The images I've seen in this thread look much better quality wise than mine do. Any recommendations?

Thanks...

The size restriction doesn't apply when you l supply external links . Your external links look wrong, if you are linking to a photo, the end of the link is usually the image extension. In your case its the word "original" so it may be that hotlinking isn't possible from your host.
As a test I have tried your mini cooper pic

IMG NOTICE: [NOT AN IMAGE URL, NOT RENDERED INLINE]

When I looked at the URL for this image there is a parameter passed to the server, the full link is:
http://www.23hq.com …4776A63D5A1B129​84C3C633B2 (external link)

The signature argument is telling the server which image to send. Hover the mouse cursor over the URL above to see it in full in the status bar

To get the URL I clicked on the image to open it at the large size, then (This works in Firefox, your mileage may vary in other browsers) right click the image and either select "copy image location" or "view image".
If you select "copy image location" the full image URL is on the clipboard ready to be pasted. "view image" shows the image only and puts the full URL in the address bar.

Thanks a lot. I've never been able to figure out what the problem is. I think this will work now. Thanks again!
