How do I display images?

Postby BionicSenior » Thu Apr 30, 2009 4:48 pm

I have two issues with images on the new site and I would appreciate some help. Today I took a photo with my Nikon D80 specifically to use as an Avatar. I edited the photo in Photoshop. I then tried to resize it using both photo shop and Paint. I could get to the 100 X 100 pixel limit and below but could not produce a file size small enough to meet the 11.72 kb maximum standard. The size of the jpeg image I started with is 1730 X 1730 Pixels and 1054 kb.

Also how do I include a photo within the post. I can attach a photo like I just did with the Avatar but how does the Img button work?

This should be OK

If you have a MAC..I can help you with the Avatar..just copy this...

Use photbucket..load pics to photobucket..choose medium..then copy the URL address..not the thumgnail and just paste it where you want

Actually I used Flickr just because I already had an account there. I had to upload the image, create the thumbnail at 100 X 100 pixels download it then upload it again. But, it worked. It looks like to insert a photo in the body of a post I will have to upload the photos so I can paste a url between the forum codes for that. I don't do a lot of posts and I rarely have pictures of fish to show :( so no big deal.

Indeed - we want fish pics.
Just like Bullwinkle says.

No fish today, blowin real hard. But we did get some nice pics of the wild horses on the beach in Corolla. Now I uploaded them to Photobucket, resized them to medium, inserted the url between the img brackets and the message I get is that "It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image." ????? :cry:
