Hi all,

Help and i am sure I am not the only one...who just finds it very difficult to load images into this site!!

Since various Image Hosting sites have been withdrawn, photo's and avatars, seemed to be drying up? One of the great things about being on a forum, is seeing images.

So I have an account with Flicker, this works well for embedding images on sites, forums and other motoring pages...but not here?

The below is my proposed new Avatar, it is less (in size) than the 100x100 specified on here, however try as I may, when loaded in my Avatar URL - still does not work.[/u]

Can someone have a look and advise, is this too short or too long??

https://flic.kr/p/2hmBjoT - Flicker state this is the SHARE OPTION.

Your input would be much appreciated. doh

Thanks Mark

What problems do you have using the Talk Morgan image server (tm-img.com)?
.
If there's something you can't figure out we can try re-writing the instructions to make it clearer.

First, how does the Avatar work.
Assumed that flickr which I do not know offers the same bundle of different links, here is how it works for me when using the TM Image libary.

First open the „Embed Codes“. Then a selection of links will apear you can chose from. Take the link which is marked „copy“ in the photo below. It is in the section DIRECT LINKS and the name of this specific link is „Image URL“. It starts with „https“.

[Linked Image]

When you have copied it you go to talkmorgan and open your profile. Then you insert this very link into the line called
„URL to your avatar“.
BTW this copy and paste works for me without the need of shrinking the pic to be used for the Avatar. I do not use any storage capacity of TM because it is just a link. But if you zoomin my avatar in this post you can see it is of same high resolution as a photo in a post.
I hope I could help without any requirements of shrinking the pic etc. it should be an easy task if the used link is correct. BTW do not forget to click the button at the line in your profile where you have insert the new avatar link to activate it, I forgot it twice and was wondering what was going wrong.
Please compare the link in the photo below with the link in the first photo. It is identical and it works.

[Linked Image]

At the end of course go to the bottom of your profile page and click „change settings“ which I also forgot to do once.

How to insert a photo in a regular post, eg in this forum „The Malvern Arms“.

Open the pic in eg. TM image library. Click on „Embed Codes“ (which you also have done when choosing the link for your avatar)

Go to the section which is simply called „Full Image“ and NOT to the section „Full Image (linked)“.

There you can see three offers. Take the middle one wich is called „BBCode“ and just copy this link. I hope flickr has the same option. It should start with „[img]https“.

Here is the pic with the correct chosen link, the small white „copy“ can be seen.

[Linked Image]

Before you send your post it should look like this in your text field:

[Linked Image]

After sending your post it is not any longer this link text but the photo itself will appear.

Oh I just see it is all explained in much better style in the link Hamwich has posted above...So not to confuse the reader of both explanations, the only difference is that I wrote that you can use the „Image URL“ when placing the avatar but of course you can also use a lower resolution offered with the „Thumbnail URL“.

Mark,

Flickr can work OK on a number of forums, but not on others. The Leica forum actually recommends not using them for image hosting as photos regularly do not link correctly from Flickr.
I still have an (unused) Flickr account as some years ago they went through a similar process to so many others of "upgrading" free accounts. I removed all my photos but couldn't find a way to close my account.

Since Peter (Gambalunga) set up www.tm-img.com I have been using that for a number of photos that I wish to share on forums (mainly here on TM and Leica). It is a free service, though like TM, donations are appreciated. smile

cheers

Someone really needs to do a proper vid. Sooo much easier to follow than snippets and screen shots.
Here is my northern version I did a while ago

Playing devil's advocate, I prefer instructions and screenshots - easier to go back and check which bits I've missed out grin2
With so many "how-to" videos I've lost the thread part way through and end up getting it wrong. (Haven't looked at yours though...)

I use Imgur. After uploading image just copy the URL and paste in between
Code
[img] and [/img] tags.

No logging in issues after first. No image size issues. A dedicated app for them under Android.

I've never had any trouble with Flickr, and the process is very similar to Bonesie's video - use the BB Code. I always Preview the post to make sure the images are displaying correctly - and that they look a sensible size.

Hi Jon,

Oh OK I have got it now - however the BB Code from the image - needs to be reduced....so that is starts with https:// and must end with .jpg.

Once I had reduced the whole link to this bit it works fine - thanks.


I am that happy you can all have a picture of me...1970's style::::: love

Hi Mark - glad that's working now! Looks like you used the entire BB Code for that image - you only need to shorten the link if you are using the Insert Image Link in the post editor.

You can also experiment with spacing the text of the BBCode...
