Adding Pictures to Topics and Posts
1) Allowed max filesize is 2.1Mb. The recommended width/height for photos is 1024x768. 800x600 sized pics is the smallest size we allow , smaller pictures are not of this century anymore.
2) To add pictures make a new topic or post and click on the button "Choose Files" which is just below the text screen. If you reply to a topic and want to add pictures make sure to click the button 'More reply options' first.
This will give you a browser where you can select up to 10 photos that you wish to upload. Select photos by holding the Ctrl key when clicking on them. When you are finished close the browse screen by clicking "Open" (wording depends on what browser you use). The files will be automatically uploaded and attached to your post/topic. (Screenshot #2)
3) If you cannot select more than one file check if ActiveX filtering is activated and turn it off (Menu Extra in Internet Explorer).
4) By adding the picture to the post you can determine the order of the pictures. (screenshot #4) If you do not use this the pictures will be posted in the order you see them below the text box.
GHW is the place to come to if you want to look at top quality militaria with high quality pictures . Blurry out of focus photos, and photos obscured by glare are not allowed on this forum.
In order to maintain that quality we have to ask everyone to respect our minimum allowed picture size.
The minimum picture size we want to see posted on the forum is 800x600. (But bigger is better) Smaller pictures are not of this century anymore. The size we can display full screen now is even 1024x768.
When posting photos of helmets, please post both profiles, the interior, the maker, lot number, and size. Decal closeups are mandatory.
It will benefit you and it will benefit other members. Good large photos will help members appreciate a helmet more , good large photos show more detail and help with an evaluation.
Our moderators will ask that the minimum size is respected.
If you need help just let us know.
Here a comparison where you can instantly see the benefit of larger photos.

We pay our host for use of the server and bandwith but that's not all. Fast support and good support is also essential for when the database crashes , we get hacked or are under virus attack.

German Helmet Walhalla is not sponsored by militaria dealers as so often is the case with other forums.
We are an independent non-profitable forum. Maintaining this independence is important because we want German Helmet Walhalla to be the best tool for collectors in the 21st century without having to compromise.
