Hi, just trying to post an image on the forum instead of using a link.
It'll either work, or it wont,

You don't.

The "img" tag will use a picture you uploaded to another site.
CameraLabs forum does not allow pictue-uploading. Only hotlinking to other sites that do... (see photobucket / flickr / imageshack / etc).

Hi audioman,

You do it like this:

Click the Quote button to see what I did.

Alternatively, and preferably if you are posting a lot of images in one go, it is more friendly for people with slow connections to dispaly a smaller version which is hyper-linked to the main Flickr page like so:

Hope this helps. 8)

Bob.

P.S. That's a truly beautiful picture.

Thanks for your input Bob. I am still confused. Where did that code come from?.
I can drive a car, pilot an aeroplane, skipper a yacht, design a website, work my new Nikon, and chop firewood. But I can't for the life of me work this out. Grrr.

Navigate to the Flickr page which allows you to show all the various sizes of your pictures and select the size you are interested in. Once that image is displayed in Fliickr you can right-click the image to discover the image's URL. Exactly how depends on your browser but the trick is to find something that ends in the magic letters "jpg". Once you have that copied to your clipboard you can paste it between those img[..[/img] tags.

Bob.

it dident work because the link you posted was not a link to the actual image because it does not end with .jpg

Although not nearly as easy to find as it should be the information is available on the Flickr site.

http://www.flickr.com/help/photos/#68

Information on how to do this should also be available on the Camera Labs (forum) site. Although I haven't looked I more or less expect it already is explained somewhere here (perhaps in a sticky posting somewhere). If it isn't explained here that would be an omission IMHO and should be corrected. If it already is here maybe it should be easier to find because I get the impression more people have difficulty with posting photos.

Thanks for that link, Ben. Not having a Flickr account I've never seen those "two text fields appear below the photo" the article mentions. Duly bookmarked. 8)

Mind you, Firefox's "Copy Image Location" on the image's context menu still sounds quicker. :wink:

Bob.

I obviously am an idiot. I cannot work this out. I went to my flickr a/c, followed the instructions, clicked the 'all sizes' link, selected the size I wanted, copied the URL (which ends in .jpg) and pasted into a new message on this forum. When I preview in this forum all I can see is the link, not the image. Grrr. Is this correct, a preview only shows the link, not the pic?.Grrrr. Not hard to see how macs came about is it.

If you've done it right, the preview will show you the picture, not just the link. Did you enclose the .jpg link in tags?

Mark
