Deinonychus (Bullyland) struck through, thanks to Lanthanotus.

Done! Thanks. :) We're getting there, slowly but surely.

Oh, but please don't use postimage. If you are editing your own blog, just upload the images to the Dinotoyblog media library. Using external hosts is what got us into this state in the first place.  ;) Instructions for reviewers are on the reviewers board: http://dinotoyblog.com/forum/index.php?topic=3457.0

Strike Bullyland mini Plateosaurus, and the AAA Entelodont, too! I even managed to do better pictures this time. I´ll be continuing, as you said, slowly but surely, still any help (like Lanthanotus´ on the Bullyland Deinoychus) is welcome!

That's great, but again, please upload to dinotoyblog media library. Please do not link to images on Postimages. It seems you are still doing this?

I do because the pictures I took are said to be too big for the DTB media library.

Hmm, can you resize them first? I'm happy to show you how if you don't know.On Windows you can do it in Paint very easily and quickly. There is no need for blog images to be more than 2mb, or more than 1000px wide.

If you don't do it, I will have to download each of your images from postimage, resize it, upload it, and edit the review with replacements. In which case, it would be much simpler for you to just send the images to me in the first place. Which you are very welcome to do, by the way.

We'll both feel foolish if in a year or two we're in the same situation with postimage as we were with Photobucket, and there is no need for us to take the risk when it comes to the blog.

We can continue this discussion in the Instructions for reviewers topic on the Reviewers board:  :) http://dinotoyblog.com/forum/index.php?topic=3457.msg99838#msg99838

I just sent in the Linde T rex and Linde Sphenacodon pictures. I can also provide the Battat Pachycephalosaurus images.

Thanks, I've updated the reviews and struck them from the list!

Any luck with this, Libraraptor? Just email me the images if you want me to resize and upload the images, and update the reviews.

Edit - I have just downloaded the images for the five reviews you used postimages for, resized and uploaded them to the media library, and updated the posts accordingly. It is time consuming for both of us this way, so in the future please either resize the images and upload them to the media library yourself, or just email me the images to resize and I'll upload and update the review on your behalf. :)

Okay, I try to edit them and upload them to the own DTB library,  I am going to look for an appropriate program for my new Laptop.

Is it Windows? You can use Paint. Open image in paint, go to resize, check 'pixels', type in 1000 in the 'horizontal' field, and save as.

We've made a lot of progress on this backlog - thanks to everyone who helped!  8) That said, some of these reviews still need pictures. Can anyone help? There is a list in the first post of this thread.

@Libraraptor, were you able to resize your images in the end?

I have the Jurassic Park juvenile T. rex ferreted away somewhere, so I will dig that one out and take photos.

I realised (after taking and uploading pictures - oops) that @suspsy has already reviewed the original Junior T. rex, which is the one I have, and @cordylus' review was just a repaint. Without pictures, the repaint review is rather pointless, and we don't really review repaints any more anyway, so I've deleted it, and crossed it off the list.  8)

Oh my, I nearly forgot about this topic. I am motivated to add resized pictures. I'll try to do that over the next few weeks.

I tried to find the Collecta Majungasaurus photos with the wayback machine, as indicated earlier, but it seems even there some of the photos are missing, but not all: https://web.archive.org/web/20101226174012/http://dinotoyblog.com/2010/12/22/majungasaurus-collecta/

The Bullyland Diatryma seems to have all the images, though: https://web.archive.org/web/20101227210435/http://dinotoyblog.com/2009/07/23/diatryma-by-bullyland/

So should be possible for most of the rest too.

The AAA Deinonychus has an ugly watermark even on archive: https://web.archive.org/web/20110213103321/http://www.dinotoyblog.com:80/2009/09/04/deinonychus-aaa/

But I have it lying around somewhere and can take photos if I find it.

Add the Battat Gallimimus to this list. It’s photos have been gone for a while. I think the guy that took them scrubbed the internet of all his stuff. (If I’m thinking of the right guy)
Did you know if you drink the juice in a magic eight ball you can see the future!?!

I've crossed off...
Majungasaurus (Collecta)
and
Scelidosaurus (Collecta Deluxe)
...from the list, thanks to @ZoPteryx for the excellent replacement pictures. Check 'em out!

http://dinotoyblog.com/2009/10/05/scelidosaurus-collecta/

Re: The Battat Gallimimus pictures, looks like they were hosted on imageshack, I'll ask @Himmapaan about this as they're credited with the images...
Actually, @DinoLord, looks like a few of your older review images have gone walkabouts, do you think it would be be possible to dig out the files and upload them to the blog? Alternatively, we'll have to take new photos...
