problems uploading photos

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys.

Thanks for the excellent website. However, At the moment I cant upload any images. They are my own and not third party. I tried making them a smaller file size but that didn't work either.

Thanks.

I use Imgur to insert my own pictures - works very well. http://imgur.com/

Have you any details of file size, dimensions and file type?

My he site allows up to 2mb images from most popular formats.

As an aside , I would urge people to load the pics directly in to this website rather then linking to third party image stores. ( consistent with copyright etc ) SO many pics are lost on older websites because the image store is now longer accessible ( as any perusal of the yuku version etc will demonstrate )

Very good point. Any images added here will persist forever :)

I have been using Dropbox to load pictures onto this Site but today I can't get the 'Copy Public Link' to work. Unable to find an answer in their Help pages, any Computer boffins out there with an answer?

It's not that easy, or straight forward.

Have a look at the FAQ at the top of the page it might help.

It's not easy or straightforward? What sort of forum is this?

 

1. Select Insert Image

2. Select file 'From Computer'

Nice one Tony - it's very easy to post, and if the image is already online, you can paste in the URL in step 2 above

I find that a pasted URL is sometimes rejected, but just typing the image tags myself usually gets around it.

Tried that, It won't let me. Hence my posting that I still have trouble.

 

Which part are you stuck on miller?

Hi 16miller

Sometimes an image JPG can be too large in terms of file size to upload on some sites. It's a good idea to always reduce the size of an image that came directly off a camera or smartphone. Suggest reducing JPG image to 1024 pixals wide before attaching here or uploading to a photo hosting site. This has the added benefits of much faster upload, as well as faster display time. A photo on a camera or smartphone can be anything between 3mb and 10mb file size, but if reduced to 1024px wide will only be about 200k in file size. Retaining the original image size is of no benefit as websites generally only show about 1024 pixals wide on a screen.
