    Re: New Build Fort Worth, Texas

    Ok I am trying to upload photos and it is not letting me… I just realized there is a size limit and I guess my first 2 photos reached that limit. I just switched to a Mac and I am not sure how to resize my photos?? So many threads on here have tons of pictures…How do they do that??

    I use photo bucket. I have 182 pictures of my pool build (and still counting). When you go to page 1 (first post)of my thread, you click on the link and see all the pictures. Also, I think if you become a paying member, your availability to post more pictures also increases.

    You can also upload to photobucket, and then add a link to each pic in your post (go to the picture in photobucket, click on IMG to copy the image URL, and paste that URL in your post). The pics will then show up in-line in your post.

    I use Flickr to host pics in my thread. Upload the pics to my Flickr account, click the "share" button, and choose "BBB code" as share method and it gives me the code to cut and paste into my TFP thread inline with my text.

    Looks like it will be a great pool!

    Hey guys, sorry for the delay. Finally figured out Photobucket. Here are pics from the beginning. We are stuck at rock work due to the crazy weather here in Texas. Snow on the ground and 25 today but workers will be working Sat and Sun since it will be in the 60's

    Re: New Build Fort Worth, Texas

    Very Very nice. You will love Photobucket. I have 182 pictures in mine and I am still adding pictures as the build continues. I see you have a lot of open area and neighbors. Are you going to do anything different with your perimeter fence?

    We cannot have privacy fences per our HOA. That is why we built up around the pool with the retaining walls and the back part of the pool.
