How can I resize my images to meet the Forum's requirements?

You can resize your images using almost any graphics program such as Photoshop, Paintshop or Microsoft's Publisher.

If you do not have a graphics program on your computer you can download a FREE program called Mihov Image Resizer from www.imageresizer.com.

This FREE program is easy to use, and will quickly reduce, rename and save the photos you select to the size necessary for the Forum, all while leaving your existing image file completely untouched. Let's keep those photographs coming!

Another free image resizer may be found at www.xemico.com/photogadget.

How do I use the Image Resizer program?

The image resizer program is very easy to use.

All you have to do to download the program is to click on the link on their website. A dialog box will popup on your screen asking you where you want to save the program, and all you have to do is select the folder on your hard drive where you want to save the program.

To install the program, all you have to do is use "Start", then "Run" then select the file you just downloaded, and the rest is automatic.

To start the program, all you have to do is select the icon on your desktop.

To resize an image, all you have to do is select the image from your hard drive in the left side of the program screen, then select the tab labeled "JPG" from the right side, then select the button labeled "resize" at the bottom of the program screen. The program will automatically resize and rename the photo, and save it in the same folders as your original image.

Really, this is all very easy to do.

Can you post my photos for me?

Yes, but I'd really prefer that you post your photos yourself because I already have enough work to do.

If you are unable to post your photos yourself, then you may email them to me at Jackson@WorldSexGuide.Info.

1. Photographs must be in .JPG or .GIF format.

2. Photos MUST be imbedded in your email.

3. Because of the constant threat of viruses, I CAN NOT open file attachments in any format other than .JPG or .GIF.

4. Please DO NOT send me any photographs as a compressed file attachment (.zip, .exe, etc.)

5. Photographs sent as a compressed file attachment or in any file format other than .JPG or .GIF will be DELETED automatically without review.

Please note that photos sent to me for submission to the Forum will be posted under the User Name "by Email". In other words, your photos will not be posted under your User Name, and thus you will not get credit for having submitted the photo.

What are the special restrictions for posting photos of Muslim women taken in Muslim countries?

THE POLICY

All photos of Muslim women, or photos of women taken Muslim countries, and the image file names and text associated with said photos, may not include the name, occupation, family relationship or home town of the subject of the photograph.

The subjects of these photos and the image file names should be named "Girl #14", "Ankara #23", "Iran 03-03-04" or the equivalent thereof.

The subjects in these photographs do not need to be masked or obscured.

DISCUSSION

Greetings everyone,

After careful consideration of all the arguments both for and against the posting of photographs of women from Muslim countries, I have come to several conclusions:

There is, in my opinion, an inordinate amount of hysteria associated with the publishing of these photos. Statements to the effect that "you're putting these women in danger for their lives" and "they could get killed for these photographs" strike me as just a little over the top. I hear this same BS every time somebody from any country doesn't like the photos that have been posted, even photos of American girls taken here in the USA. As I consider all the possible motivations people may have for trying to portray the posting of a photograph as a life or death event, from religious fanatics to mongers trying to protect what they believe is their as yet undiscovered playground, I realize that I cannot permit myself to be influence by any of these pleadings.

Specifically related to the publishing of photographs of Muslim women, it's been a long time since I read a news story of a chica being stoned to death for allowing herself to be photographed in the nude.

I was especially humored by one contributor's description of how in every Internet cafe in Morocco one could observe that the majority of the Internet users were perusing porn sites. If this is such a grave religious offense, then why aren't the Muslim religious leaders staking out the Internet cafes and subsequently hauling the offenders out back and stoning them to death?

I'm also humored by suggestions that once a photo has been placed on this forum, then within seconds it will be magically viewed by every person on the Internet. The fact is that in an internet world literally flooded with porn photographs, one photograph on one website is equivalent to a grain of sand amongst all the sand on all the beaches in the world.

Thanks,

Jackson
