When I go to insert an image it askes for a URL. If I put in where the picture is at and finish the picture it shows up as it should. But then if I go into edit I can then upload from my computer. But I can't do that when I first want to insert an image? Why would this be? Is there a moderator or someone that could explain this to me? Is something wrong? ..Cheers.

test - h
Can you explain how to post larger photos inline the way others are shown here?
When I try to upload, it doesn't seem to allow me to use a larger jpg... and I notice that it's not a matter of membership (or doesn't appear to be)...
(too late for the photo contest)

my test thank you !

I'm trying to add photos from my flickr account to a 'for sale' thread, and I keep getting an error saying the "remote image is too large." I'm only trying to embed the image in the thread, why isn't this working? Thanks.

I uploaded the pictures directly, and for some reason that was easier to do.

Any idea why I get the little box, and not the image itself? I am posting a link to an Imageshack picture.

how do you guys post such big pictures?
most of the time it says the file is too big (4,5MB). what's the size limit then?
links from flicker don't work at all and it says that the ones on photobucket are too big.
when i scale them down - they get tiny.

The easiest way is to use Photobucket and paste the provided forum code for your uploaded image there and you get an image like the screenshot below
or you can upload your pictures to our servers like below

Two things. I haven't a clue what photobucket is. In order to upload to the server (my preference), I need to be able to get to the proper URL. I don't know how to do that.

If you right-click on the photo and a drop-down menu appears (Windows, mind you I don't use others) you should see Properties, go to it and click. A window will apper and a URL with the address of the picture will be in the middle. Use your mouse to copy it and make sure you are in advanced mode for the icons at the top (the box to click is at the bottom of you quoted reply box and quick reply boxes as well). There is a yellow box with what looks like a tree (insert IMG code for web images routine) and it opens the window to paste the URL in (if you don't paste over or wipe out the existing "http://" part it will not work right, only one http in the addreess--it's a quirk).
"Photobucket" is but one of many image/file hosting services that hold your files online to share. Flickr is another one, Fotki...look up file hosting.
You cannot post your home computer shots in the main message body like web images and files can be. They must be ATTACHED or put on a host site to find and post.
If your account laspses or they lose your photos then the pictures disappear. On the other hand you can show fine details from hosted photos immediately without opening the photo attachment routine. remember that if you want them there a long time as there are earlier posts to the site with X's and 404 messages from hosts. It might do you well to either post the thumbmails or the HTML now and replace it with thumbnails later,
SO, summing up, post other people pix for examples with the IMG command, post your hosted files the same way or use the attachment manager for thumbnails.
Hope that helped you and welcome to Bike Forums!
