This can be a running post but I just wanted a place to talk about images and how best to post them here. As already stated (but worth repeating) you can right click copy page images directly from other sites into this forum. Those images will then be hosted here and don’t count against any ‘user limit’ so this is more like Facebook and nothing like Photobucket. Those days are over.
Is there a max file size? Yes. I think it’s like 4-5mb. So no you won’t be able to upload your raw camera or 4K phone photos without re-sizing them first. That is a limitation we need to keep because photo resizing can use a LOT of system resources and we don’t want to crash the server when someone tries to upload 10 100mb images.
How can I post images? There are several ways you can add images. The easiest is simply via copy/paste of the image itself (not the URL). Simply right click on a photo and hit copy and then inside the topic field hit the paste key for your PC or device (CTRL+V for Windows). You can also hit right click and paste fyi. The second way is to upload a photo directly from your device. This is via the image icon in the toolbar above the topic form.
The above methods will work well for people doing multiple images in a topic as a user clicking on one enlargement will be able to click through multiple photos using the arrows (right/left).
The last way is to use an image URL to insert an image (this can also be done via the pop-up window above). This automatically creates a link to that image so that you would see the original image on that sites URL. This results in 3rd party hosting of the image and means if they delete the image or their site goes offline in the future. The image will be gone. To insert a URL just paste the text URL into the topic form field.
I will add or modify this as things come up, but for now I am going to move some of a discussion from another unrelated topic (because… we can do stuff like that now) here. If you have questions about uploading images. Ask them here.
