African safari

I took these while in Africa for a few weeks about a month ago. Some of them have been edited, some have been left alone. Sorry for the large size, I'm not gonna go through and edit them all to fit here.

EDIT ok so the only way that I know how to post the pics without them being huge and uncompressed and without having to edit the size of every one of them to fit is to share a link to the public folder in Dropbox. Here you go. (Of course, click on the Africa folder after clicking the link)

Something's wrong. I can't see any images. Maybe you tried to post too many in one pane.

Can't see in either IE or Chrome. I can see all the images in the other threads. Did you upload, or use BBCode to link? BBCode is the easiest way to post if your pix are on a host like Flickr or SmugMug.

I added the images by right-clicking each in Dropbox, saving URL, and inserting image on here. Each image has [IMG] tags. Is there an easy way for me to edit my current post and do it pretty quickly so I don't have to go back and re-add them all one by one?

Ughh, so I did what you are supposed to do to share pics straight out of the Public Dropbox folder (instead of opening the image, copying the URL and posting it on here which it what I was doing that wasn't working). When I paste the URL link directly from the public folder, though, the image is absolutely massive and uncompressed. I absolutely am not going to go through every image and resize.

Can anyone think of anything else I can do?

Great shots at a great location. Most of us won't ever see critters like this in their natural habitat, thank you for sharing!

Dude! Did you tag along with Animal Planet or something? This has to be the best bang for your buck safari i've ever seen! EVERYTHING in Africa is in that gallery. You have a pic of a leopard for crying out loud. And lions bumping uglies, hippos out of the water, zebra fighting and crossing a river with HUGE crocs. You've got a pic of zebra crossing a river with a hippo in the back ground and a croc in the foreground. Nice!

Looks like an epic safari bro!
