Re: flikr image test

In the first test I used the text above but with image tags - [img][/img] but the image doesn't show up. second test had url tags. Any thought on why first test didn't imbed the picture?

Easy, "https://flic.kr/p/U7P4NY" is missing a valid photo filename and extension such as jpg, and gif so that is why the image tag in post number one failed.

Re: flikr image test

Hello Rick,
How did you embed the photo image into a post?
I have already attached photo links and thumbnails into posts, but I have not been able to figure out how to embed an image as you did in post #4?

Thanks!
Mike

Re: flikr image test

LOL you can either type in square bracket image tags around the full path and file name of your picture from your off site location. The image tags start with a square bracket around the word IMG and end with square brackets around the word /IMG - I can't exactly show you because the system will remove them from view and try to display the data in between the image tags.

in example a full path and file name is:
Code:
https://www.sharemystuff.com/mycamaropictures/mycamaro.jpg
or just click the yellow "insert image" icon from the tool bar.

Also remember that you must grant public access to your photos from the share, otherwise anyone not you can not see the photos. And read the small print - some FREE photo sharing sites, or small link generator sites have notice in their users agreement - you know the thing you scroll through without reading and click I agree - that by joining and uploading your photos to their site, you agree give up ownership and all rights to your photos as long as stored on their site and the site owners then sell them for use with paid advertising banners, so if you don't want your vehicle, and even children and family photos used to sell auto insurance, airline or cheap motel rooms use a paid photo storage/sharing site to store your photos. Or better yet preserve your threads by becoming a supporting member of our community here at TC. One time fee of $59.99 for lifetime Gold membership and the max amount of storage for your photos, and limited amount of advertising.

Re: flikr image test

Thanks Brian. I tried Photobucket but the ads were slowing things down. Flickr is much faster...it just takes a few steps to find the URL (or whatever you call it). I will strongly consider the upgraded membership.

Mike.

Re: flikr image test

Thanks Mike. As in everything in life nothing is free. The free sites either push advertising and services to you and your guest when they view your photos, or the sharing site uses your images to generate revenue from your uploads. So you have to find one that works for your comfort level.

I have nothing against share sites but 99% of the photos linked to great threads here have been moved or deleted, which then makes most of those great threads worthless to the next generation of owners coming to this site for advice and help. Thats my beef. We are a living document for the first gens and if you take the time to share an important photo then it should remain forever in that thread. Just my two dollars worth so I'll get off my soapbox and thank you again for considering becoming a supporter of the site.

Re: flikr image test

Did anyone ever get Google Photos to work and stay viewable? IMGUR works pretty good.
