If you'd like to add a photo to your post, you can do the following:

On the Edit screen, simply click the IMG button and enter the URL of you image.

Like this:
CODE

For example:
CODE


Remember that your photo has to be on the Internet for this to work. If you do not have any place to host your photos you can subscribe to a free photo hosting service. Even better, join up to the Model Rail Forum Plus+ membership package and get the use of the gallery to host you photos - you'll help support the forum in the process too. Click here for details.

Please keep your photos around or under 800 pixels wide. This saves bandwidth and allows people with lower screen resolutions to see the images. 900 pixels for the occasional good photo, but please don't post jumbo photos un-cropped or resized directly from your camera.

If you have a problem, please don't hesitate to ask.

I would like to post an image
I have uploaded it to a personal photo album hosted by my ISP
My ISP indicates that my photos are stored at http://<site>@ISP.com
How do I further refine the URL so that it points to the album / photo in question?

Regards
David

Left mouse click on the image and a menu opens up. Right click on "properties" at the bottom of the menu. Copy the address(URL) and paste this in between the image codes as shown above.

When you review the message the image should then be present.

You can then add the reply which includes the image.

Happy modelling

Doug,

I have been trying to post a photo, but on trying to use the "Canon Image Gateway" (which I chose because I have a Canon camera), the MRF site reported an error along the lines of "Cannot host dynamic pages" or similar (it was late and I did not write down the actual error text).

Is there any other way I can upload images?

Or is there a free site you can recommend which works for this job?

Thanks for any help.

Hello,

Is there code that allows you to resize the image as displayed on the fourm? Neither [img=AxB] or seem to work...

Thanks,
Goedel

No, as it is now, that wouldn't work. Perhaps there is a modification code out there somewhere that would do it.

The board software has automatic resizing for extra large images, but I turned that off as it didn't work so well and wasn't able to be configured to the level that I required.

With the gallery, if you upload a large image, it will be resized into a large (1600x1200 max), medium (640x480 max) and small (128x128 max) graphic, keeping the aspect ratios of the original file.

Use ResizR to rezize your images online if you like and then save them in your gallery or to your PC.

I don't have a site on the internet to store photos. Can't someone enable a simple 'cut or copy and paste' facility to allow pictures to be added/imported to a post? It would be much easier than having to set up a website/host site?

Looks like a useful site/facility, so I've bookmarked it for later use - it looks to me like you can use a file directly from your HD, so if your picture is only stored on say Photobucket all you have to do is download it back to your HD to resize ?

That will not affect being able to see images posted on this website.

This sounds like some kind of setting problem on your system, but I haven't a clue what. It feels like your system doesn't like finding references to other Internet sites in the messages. It seems to be saying "I'm on MRF; I'm not going to look at that imagesite, I don't know where it's been!".

I think you need to talk to someone who knows how a system might think like that.

Here's a test. The image below is stored in the MRF Galleries, so the image is "local" rather than coming from outside. If you can't see it, then I guess your browser really doesn't want you to see any pictures at all




There should be a small image just above this sentence.

Was a solution to this Photobucket problem ever found as I have been trying today to post a photo from Photobuckett and getting the same "dynamic image" problem. I post photos from Photobucket to other forii without any problem so whats the matter here?

I find that the system will not accept uploads from Photobucket now because of those dynamic images,

Well I can't fix or change anything. The forum doesn't allow dynamic images - I suppose for security reasons.

You should be able to drill down to the original Photobucket image and use that as I have seen others using Photobucket on this and other forums.

Looking at Photobucket, under the image there are link codes: IMG Code - Forums & Bulletin Boards use that code and just insert it where you want the image to appear.

here is one at random:

When I click on the link you have posted, an image appears in a separate box, so as a remote link that works for me.

One comment I would make, is that Flickr is blocked in some jurisdictions because the authorities don't approve. This means that some members here are not able to see photos posted on that site. I have not heard that Photobucket is affected in that way.

If I right click on that image and click 'view image' (Firefox) I get this URL:
CODEhttp://farm4.static.flickr.com/3017/2859760134_fe99cb8d9c.jpg?v=0
The forum won't accept that as it does not end in .jpg, .gif or .bmp.

Strip the '?v=0' at the end and you end up with something that you can insert between the IMG tags like this:
CODE

Which gives this:

Hi Doug

If you are running the Firefox V 3.0
when your mouse moves over the "link" on the Post by 1ngham https://flic.kr/p/2859760134
the picture comes up

annoying at times when you want to download something instead of opening it


So the dynamic link works for me anyhow
