Photo testing


I'm sick of smaller photos or pictures. This thread is for testing ways of posting them. Windstruck was suggesting photobucket but it was not working for me.

Photo from phone...

Is there a way to attach that link so it just shows the photo. It only tries to upload from my phone so I just pasted it into the text.

That link you posted looks like it's cut off, so not working. Did you try hitting preview post, then clicking on the "insert an image" icon (yellow with mtns) and pasting the direct url to your image.
The icon just adds [IMG]url[/IMG] to your url.
The problem is you have to have your hosted image properly resized, or it will show up as super giant and mess up the formatting of the page. I wonder if there's a [width][/width] tag or something like that...

edit - I don't know about google, but dropbox makes it difficult to access the image - you have to edit the url.

Jeff above is providing clearer direction than I did via U2U. I use the insert photo button from Preview that he describes. Within Photobucket is a resize feature and I often reduce truly large pictures for the reason provided. A mix dimension of 1000 is plenty big enough. Also, I usually do this from my laptop not Phone. Good luck!

Below I added an extra "com" to "photobucket.com" to force a failure so you could see how the text looks. The buggy at the bottom of this post is with the code intact and is 1000 x 1000 pixels in size and stored by me on Photobucket.

When I go to my google image, copy the link and click the yellow icon it shows me and previews this. It shows for me as a tiny block or text.

The picture is larger but it is rotated and doesn't seem to be a way to change that.

Well, it let me upload one picture. I tried a second to set another size and it won't work. Tried a different picture, won't do that also....maybe it's my connection.

I asked to try and do a portrait format picture. It rotates mine counter clockwise.

I did not see a way to rotate it after it was uploaded to tinypic so I tried to outsmart it and rotate it clockwise before importing it... It flipped the image over.

Also if i try to add a second picture to the forum page it says I'm trying to access post data and deletes the previous picture and any text i have added.

When you upload your photo to Tinypic, resize it first - if you need to get it to a sensible number of pixels, that is. Then choose 'default' as size, instead of those other formats.



..hopefully this one turned out right ...
Picture of my father and brother on Finlandsfjellet, Kvaloya in Troms(Norway)

Good kitespot with beautiful scenery ... right ?

.. I don't mean to hijack the post, just want to add a recommendation for an absolutely awesome free photo editor for Windows; "Nomacs" - small and elegant and well featured.

Also 1 tip for posting on PKF; after writing, but before you actually post: mark all text, copy (ctrl-a then ctrl-c) and then preview. That way you do not loose everything when the forum program(?) sometimes chokes and displays nothing while vanqushing everything you just precariously wrote. Happy posting, thanks again for the tip on Tinypic!
