John.

Go to Gallery, and there should be one set up for you.

Click on this, and there is an option to upload.

No Jack. The size limitations are much more generous.

I don't know how you store your photos John but if you use Picasa you can reduce the file size by exporting the photo. Export allows you to choose the pixel size and quality of the pic.

I'm sure other photo sharing sites offer the same option but I'm only really familiar with Picasa.

To insert a picture this way, I assume it has to have a web address (as opposed to uploading from one's own computer files)?

Just doing a test myself

It took me a few goes to get this to work with picasa. With picasa there is a set of options in the right hand margin
1. click on 'link to this photo
2. select the 'image only (no link)' checkbox
3. grab the url from the 'embed image' textbox
4. paste the url between the image tags Image

If in doubt upload it to your Image Gallery and then use the ' Album ' option to include the pic in your post ;)
Moby or Mob is far easier to type ...

Photos are easy on here, already have an album assigned to your profile name - then can create a sub album easily, have just done some myself.

Can I ask how you all managed to post such large images, please?

It took about 5 attempts to upload mine as it kept saying that the image was too large and had to be less than 200 x 200 pixels. So that is the size of the one I posted of Azura and it looks way too small. :lol: btw I transferred the image across from my photobucket account using the IMG code at the bottom of the photo.

I'd love to post more photos but there is a restriction on size and it would mean resizing most of my albums.

Our genial host reported a problem a while back with space on the website and shortly afterwards the members' galleries disappeared.

If we start embedding loads of piccies in our postings, won't we eventually run into the same space problem?

Richard - when I wanted to upload a photo, I'd copy it to a temporary folder and resize it. Might that work for you, rather than resizing everything?

Yes, I could resize individually but it really is a pain opening and closing programmes when the occasion arises. Particularly when I have them all ready in Flickr.

Thanks for the concern though.

Maybe last night's Shiraz hasn't had time to dissipate yet but can anyone tell me if the 'Gallery' has been reinstated and if so where can I find it please.

I have many pictures that will be of interest.

Nice to see someone on the ball this early. ;) ;)
