My 1st display
I've been into farm displays ever since I was a little guy
but this was the 1st actual display I made on a board with
full detail, I built it about 5 years ago and took it to the
fair and got 2nd, through out the years I've been working on
it and finally got it the way I like it.

camera ( Sony Cyber Shot with 2x zoom and 3.2 mega pixels),

size them down if I want to post anything. Thanks on your

with 3.2 megapixel you can post pictures, with 5.1 megapixel

The maximum resolution for Farmphoto is 800 x 600.
Use Microsoft Image resizer Here

Copy & paste URL

to resize to acceptable size. Check out my posts
for results.
Re: My 1st display
Thanks for the information, and nice pictures.
Re: My 1st display
or use IrfanView to resize.

It's free and you can also so lots of other things with it.

Also the software that came with your camera probably has a
tool to resize images. The maximum width for farmphoto is
800 pixels. The height can be anything I think...
Re: My 1st display
I can resize my pictures just fine I have Microsoft Photo
Editor on my computer and that came with my camera, but
every time I post a picture and send it it says error file
must be less than 1 m bytes even if I have I have everything
to the right size, but thanks for the help.
Re: My 1st display
Use the image resizer. Files will be much smaller.
Re: My 1st display
Check the filesize. If it is greater than 1MB then you will
indeed have trouble. But a photo that is only 800 pixels
wide should never be that big. Make sure you save it as a
JPG file (not a BMP) and if it is still too big look at the
compression (or "quality") settings. By tweeking these you
should be able to get the file size down to about 100KB...

Re: My 1st display
awesome display! Looks like you put a ton of work into it!!
Re: My 1st display
and yes it took me awhile to get everything just
right on that display, through out the years I've switched a
lot of things around and finally got it the way I like it
with machinery, buildings and cattle. I want to build more
displays but right now just don't have the time to plus I'm
making payments on a new truck so I really don't want to
spend money on my display when I have it where I like it, if
I had the time I'd want to add a grain elevator with a farm
supply store with working rail road, a John Deere
dealership, a replica of my farm, a replica of a guys farm
at school( even though it's a real dumpy ran down place I
just want a display for all my broken and bad stuff), a race
track, and then a town area, but with in a few years I'll be
moving out so I really don't feel like doing all that then
packing them up. Your display doesn't look too bad either,
with in a few years you'll have it just the way you like it.
Do you come from a farming background because that'd help a
lot knowing about machinery and setting stuff up? If not
here are some tips to help you on your way:

1) Spread your display out, you want don't evrything to be
close together.

2) Keep it simple, you don't want 20,000 things going on the
at farm at once.

3) Know what the equipment does, this might sound stupid but
there's a lot of displays out there where a person sets up a
chisel plow and then has a guy planting right behind or
something like that.

4) This is an opinonal one but keep your display looking
real you spend that kind of money on everything it should
kind of repersent a farm, but if you're not into and you
like to play prentend or be into carpet farming that's fine
too that's one good thing about farm displays.

5) Last no matter what have fun with it.
Re: My 1st display
Thanks a lot for the useful tips ill have to save those or
something on the favorites

Re: My 1st display
I wouldn't mind sending anyone some tips I have a lot more.
I don't want anyone on here to get mad thinking I act like a
farm display expert I just want to help those who are
getting in this hobby, I wish I had help like that, I got
help from my parents when I was little and didn't know
better about something like having the wrong size tractor on
a piece of equipment, or having something that doesn't make
sence, then when I was older I knew all that stuff.
