Uploading notes

Recommended Posts

try this:

 

1. upload your images to http://www.banknotebank.com. the website automatically resizes your images, so it doesn't matter how big your original file is.


2. once your image is uploaded, click on it.

3. after the image zooms to the bigger size, use your mouse to right click & bring up properties.

I've had this issue too. Higher Resolution scans will not upload to Banknotebank for me either. If my images are more than 980KB, I resize and "Save As" a different name, which allows me to keep the original. Then I upload the image using the smaller size (must be less than 900 KB for me) and I then delete the smaller image. This is a pain, but it is the only way I have been able to get it to work.

 

Hope this helps and isn't too much of a bother. Perhaps others may chime in with a better way to do it...?

hmmm...maybe banknotebank is still a little unstable. here's an old link about it.

If you use Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, take the original high resolution photo, and use "Save for Web", with the setting at 100%. You'll get an excellent shot that is small enough in size to fit into BanknoteBank. I also resize physically before Save for Web" to about 1000 pixels on the longest side.

I just scanned a few notes and uploaded them directly to BanknoteBank from my PC with no troubles.

 

 

Yeah - For me it is only when the size of the image is close to 1MB that I have to mess with it. At the bottom of the screen on BNB when you're uploading the images, there is a statement that the maximum file size is 1MB... but I have to get them just a bit lower for some reason. I don't have to mess with it too much - only on large notes, because I scan at 300dpi and it makes the image too large then.
