Posting pictures

Hey gang!
Just like on sierra, down at the bottom of the 'reply' window, there is an "attach file" field Guess we've got the best of both worlds here

Now, lets see some pictures

Hey Eric,

Duh, why didn't we notice that before??? Thanks. I'm giving it a try. These are tulips from last year. They haven't bloomed yet, but they have buds.

It didn't work. I have it filed to a CD. Do you think it has to be on a website?

Maybe it was too large. I'm reducing it to half and see if it works.

OK, someone else can give it a whirl. That didn't work either.

(It showed up in that little box like it was there.)

Gami,
This is a shot. I have no gardening pictures here, but I do have a picture of something else.

Yikes! 1 byte is the max size. I wonder how she did it???

I've gotta go buy a Y coupler for the hose now. If someone figures it out, let us know! I thought I had it

OK, here's what I figured out. If you right click on Lilypadis' photos, and go into Properties - it shows a URL address.

Also, right above this reply box is an "IMG" button, if you click on that, it gives you a box to type the URL address in. So I guess you have to have a website.

Fred, how about you giving it a try since you're already set up?

Hi Fred,
Even with the aforementioned IMG box? A travesty has befallen us!

I'm dying laughing! I guess we'll have to wait for the expert to show up.

Thanks, Fred.

Well, I guess that expert definetly ain't me....

I was the one who started this thread thinkin' it was as simple as clicking on the "attach" button....

Guy and Gal,
I asked this question awhile back. This is the response I received:

You have to post the image to a web page, then link to it here using img and /img code. See the VB code info at the bottom of the page.

for example: This picture

PICTURE here

is displayed by coding the following:
{img]http://forum.doityourself.com/readersdigest/images/handymanmagazine.jpg[/img}

Change the first and last { } to square brackets [ ]

Hmmmmmmmm.... Now I guess it's a matter of what we find easier... posting on sierra, or getting a website. Personally, I'm for the former

Me too, that's one too many steps for me. It's nice to know that tho, maybe I'll play around with it someday.

...but thanks, Fred!

I agree TEAM,
It's much easier over there.............Until we take up too much space on the Siera server and they start making some kind of cutbacks. Hopefully not.

Hey Fred!

I just brought your name up under the Shady Flowers post regarding Photofun.com. How do like that site? You've got a lot of great stuff on it and I was just wondering if we could do some photo linking here that way?

Thanks,

Liz

Hi Fred,

The Member's gallery only has so much space. The previous moderator used to clean it out quite often, much to the dismay of some folks. BUT she usually asked us if it was OK to delete things. It really isn't as busy as it used to be, but then we're just getting into the growing season, so it should be picking up.

Gosh Fred....you're a genius (AND a snakehandler).

Who ever thinks to read directions?!? I still think Gami's right....much easier to post on Sierra!

I was thinking! Oh, oh! If we can post pictures from websites, how difficult would it be to change it so we are able to post pics from our hard drives. Anybody know who answers these questions? Not everyone wants to go to the trouble of setting up a website.

Alrighty guys... I'm giving this a shot... I just set up a home page on geocities, and dug way in the back of my brain, past the cobwebs and the dust, to remember my HTML coding. Lets see if this works:

Hi Eric,
You probably have the coding correct. (as described in Shady flowers)
Yesterday Gami couldn't see her lil .gif picture. I reoaded it, and VOILA, it appeared.
Today it is back to a red x. A mystery to me.
We'll keep playing!!!!!

Fred,
That's Joey Harrington, quarterback from the University of Oregon. It was the front picture on ESPN.com

All,
I asked a former colleague, who unfortunately, is still slaving in the office. The only thing he could think of regarding the 'sometime' inability to load a picture here is that it may depend on internet traffic and that a picture will not load due to timing out. You know how some websites won't load or you get "website not responding". That was the only thing he could think of right now.

Okay gang -

This picture - if it will work right here - is a picture of the orchard right next to my house.

It's a quite a sight!



Sorry I didn't have a digital camera to personalize the shot and include a pic of the cottage.

Eric,

Just so people know, Eric's pic came from my landlord's horse farm located on the other side of the lake - he raises and trains all sorts of horses (like Belgian Drafts), and he trains the handlers, as well.

Eric - I wonder of the trouble with the cardoon is its size? The file details under "Properties" indicates a negative value next to file size. Just wondering....

Hi Everyone,

Great pics! Beautiful orchard, Liz. There's one up the road from us, but no mountains in the background. That really sets it off. I'm glad to see it's working part-time.

Fred, would Tom be the person to ask how difficult it would be to change the imaging so they could be downloaded from the hard drive?

I may try this again, but for the moment, I'm tried out. I get real frustrated when things don't go right--after 3-5 attempts. I'm "rising" for Sierra.

Hi, I am new to this board and thought I would try a picture. If it works, the picture was taken
in my backyard.

Hi Casseylassie,
Your picture worked, and it looks like a duplex!
What kind of birds use them as home?
Hope you enjoy the forums here, a good bunch of people.

Hey Gami - this one's for you.

Hi Fred,

Oh, my! Aren't you getting good at this!? OK, I'll have to figure out how to get the fluttering butterfly show up at the end of my posts. I assume by the guy swinging the golf club that you are a tad bit interested in golf???

Thanks for the welcome. The bird houses never get used by birds. The squirrels seem to like them.
We have so many trees the birds do not need to use the houses. Let me see if I can show you a picture of the pond.
