Re: How to post images / photos

Unfortunately, it seems that if I simply post the picture to my own ISP-hosted web space, I can link to it, but I can't embed it. (See my post at viewtopic.php?f=27&t=31980)

I see your embedded picture just fine in that post.

Re: How to post images / photos

Note to Flickr users. Use the embed, copy the link, paste on the page, find the part that starts with "https://live.staticflickr.com" and ends with ".jpg" and copy/cut that, paste that on a blank line and add [ IMG] before the https and [ /IMG] after the .jpg NOTE: remove space after left bracket [. I had to add it to keep it from going into image mode.

Example
<a data-flickr-embed="true" href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/123456777@N02" title=""><img src="https://live.staticflickr.com/61111/523 ... 34sa_h.jpg" width="1600" height="1200" alt=""></a><script async src="//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

https://live.staticflickr.com/61111/523 ... 34sa_h.jpg

[ IMG]https://live.staticflickr.com/61111/523 ... 34sa_h.jpg

[ IMG]https://live.staticflickr.com/61111/523 ... 34sa_h.jpg[ /IMG]

Now the image should appear when you preview

It might be better if your examples use a valid image - that URL doesn't work.

But I'm able to see the flickr image you included in your post at viewtopic.php?p=605648#p605661
which goes to https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/512 ... 858a_h.jpg

Re: How to post images / photos

It’s amazing this forum is stuck in 1995

Being able to attach a small image was invented in the late 90’s and is a common function on all other forums.

Agreed.

I tried using OneDrive but it didn't work well.

What's the best way to attach images to the forum at this point?

Re: How to post images / photos

Upload the image to a image hosting site like Imgur. They will offer options to create links. Then paste the link url you have copied from the image site into a post here, highlight it, select "Img" from the posting options, and if the gods are smiling upon you, the image will appear here.

Re: How to post images / photos

I use my Google drive to store the jpeg, and reference it in a post with the <img> tags.

Not a big deal, just a bit clunky. And I do tend to resize the jpeg first.

The other thing is that forcing people to use external images means that in a few years time 50% or more of the images will not be visible. For many posts, this doesn't matter much. But some users put a lot of effort into their posts, and with these often the images are invaluable.

But, I don't pay for the server, so I can't complain.

Two choices:
1. Become a paid forum supporter and upload images directly to the forum when you make a post.
2. Upload to a hosting site (e.g., imgur.com) and follow the instructions in the first post of this thread.

The owner of the forum long ago decided that option 1 is a premium level service.
