Re: Directory image quality wonky

FYI, my brother just uploaded a photo as an experiment, and we can confirm the church are compressing it (and stripping tags). He recommends that you strip any tags and save it with no compression at all, so that when the church compresses the image, they're not compressing an already-compressed im...

Re: Directory image quality wonky

I went and found a picture in the ward directory of another family that looks really good and I downloaded it. It is 500x375, 96dpi, 24 bit color depth. However, the file size is 293k. When I download my file I am uploading, it is also 500x375, 96dpi, 24 bit color depth, but the file size is 31.8k. ...

Re: Directory image quality wonky

Sorry if this is annoying, but these are the only things I know to check, and if they don't work, I'd suggest using the app / webpage feedback to log a bug, cuz the only thing left is some kind of bug in the image upload / thumbnail making process... When I go to http://paint.net it redirects me to...

Re: Directory image quality wonky

Thanks but that didn't do anything better. Now that I look at many of the other pictures on the directory, many of them have this same problem. I also looked at in IE instead of Chrome and the same problem appears. The photo quality is poor. If I click the pictures to see the enlarged version, they ...

Directory image quality wonky

I've never had issues before, but today trying to update my family's picture, the uploaded file image quality looks poor after the upload. My steps: 1. I am starting with a very high resolution file, 5631x3754 2. I am resizing it down to the requested 500x375 using paint.net 3. I upload the file usi...

Re: Webcasting sacrament meeting to shut-ins

michaelfish,

Our assisted hearing receivers are wireless. I haven't looked at them to see if they have a headphone out or something similar on them. I'll have to glance at them the next time I'm in the library. Are yours wireless?

Re: Webcasting sacrament meeting to shut-ins

gekelley, I'd be curious what software and hardware you are using to do this. I researched using icecast to do an audio stream via a webserver, but we opted for the simple suggestion of using audio CDs because the bandwidth in our building is unpredictable (ok in the morning, dropped packets in the ...

Re: making Resservations

Looks like the online help is still using the word reservations. My wife is the new building scheduler and had me look into why she doesn't have the reservations menu option. Yes, but the reason it was renamed is because it was being mis-used. Things need to be scheduled as events , not as a reserv...

Re: Webcasting sacrament meeting to shut-ins

Although we don't Webcast our Sacrament meetings to shut-ins, we turn this into an opportunity of service. In our ward, we record our Sacrament meeting talks with a laptop using one of the assisted hearing receivers, then burn 4-5 CD's, tape them to the inside of a program and send them out with th...

Re: Webcasting sacrament meeting to shut-ins

I realize I'm resurrecting an old thread, but given the church's advancements in webcast support, I wanted to get a feel of what people are doing for the home bound members/shut-ins. Our building does not have the fastest internet, so I think I'm limited to probably only audio. The idea just came up...
