Send Image

All text and no images makes for a dull read.

We prefer you include images via URL in your posts (hotlink) however if you don’t have the image available online, this form allows you to send images to the 807area admin/webmaster to include with your announcement/PSA. This form can also be used for other images such as an avatar for your profile or update/change any images you provided previously. More details at bottom of page.

Note: to save on our bandwidth and shorten upload/download time please make your images ‘web ready’ before uploading them to us. Web ready is making sure that the images are in GIF/PNG format for logos or illustrations or JPEG for photos and that they fit on a web page (not too big). The recommended resolution of web images images is 72 or 96 dpi.

Image Upload Form Field Details

  • Image Type - is it an Avatar, Header, Illustration or Photo image? This determines how the uploaded image is to be handled.
    • Avatar - an image to be included in your user/member profile and used in 807area site. If you are going to include an avatar (which is highly recommended), it is best to have a an image that can be cropped/sized to a medium size and/or a small size square. A full sized avatar image is 150 x 150 @ 96 dpi, please make sure the image you send is not smaller.
    • Header - A 770px × 225px minimum image size for your header is recommended. The image does not have to be exactly 770px × 225px, the image may be sized/cropped to fit.

    • Illustration – Same as photo however GIF or PNG format is recommended. Max size 960px (image may be sized/cropped to fit if larger).
