You have 2 sets of image tags before and after your url. Just past the url into your post, highlight it with your cursor, and click the picture tool. You don't have to type in a second set of img tags.

Another attempt to put up the picture.

the picture imaging whatever is a huge joke..I consider myself very computer literate, but this site for pics is amazing...

Guys, I'm a dunce about this stuff.(Surprise!) 1Hog_On, what do you mean about it being a huge joke and the site is amazing? Is that good or bad or in between? Ron M, I'm sorry but I don't understand what you're suggesting. Am I having trouble because of Imageshack, Norton/Symantec or me? At least my delete button works now.

Image Shack should have automatically provided the link, all you needed to do is copy and past the link marked "Thumbnail for forums (1)" and it should show like this. Below is the code that Image Shack provided. When you click on the picture a full size version will open.

Posting full sized pictures hosted by ImageShack is simple. *Just copy and paste the "Direct Link to Image" url into your post and put in the img tags either manually or by using the picture tool.

If the picture is wider than 475 pixels, you will need to first resize it or to post the expandable thumbnail link ("thumbnail for forums") as Ron has just indicated.

Here is your full sized image url:


This always begins with http:// and ends with the picture file format (.jpg).

Putting that link between the front and back img and /img tags gives you:

This picture is too wide to display properly, so it needs to be resized to post directly.

If you cut on the code in the first line you may have to upload the pic again.

Put cursor over top line, right click, copy, (don't worry it will copy the whole line) come back to this site and paste. That is it. No muss, no fuss, nothing else to do. [smiley=computer.gif] [smiley=thumbsup.gif] [smiley=worthy.gif] [smiley=yahoo.gif] [smiley=yikes.gif] [smiley=yahoo.gif]

When you paste the thumbnail, you don't want to use the picture tool. The thumbnail urls already contain the necessary codes. You should only use the image tags when you have a direct link that starts with http://.

Most people post full images rather than thumbnails since they look better in threads. ImageShack has a tool on the first page that lets you automatically resize a picture to 320 pixels wide. That is usually good enough for these forums if you don't want to resize your images yourself using the free tool that is listed on several of the boards or software that comes with most cameras. You just click on the 320 X 240 button before uploading your image.

Thats what it should look like ;)

Image Shack does get confusing if it's your first time. Maybe this will help.


If you use the link where you see the red circle on top just copy and paste that into your post.

That will put a thumbnail picture in your post and when you click on it it will open the larger pic, see below. Don't worry about the link going off the end of the box.

If you use the link in the bottom red circle you have to past the link between img and /img using the brackets like below. This link will give you a full size pic in your post.


which will look like this....

That does seem rather confusing. I have the resizing software that Doc recommends downloaded. I then download my resized pics to ImageShack. I then click on My Images. Then all you have to do is go to the first line under the heading "Embeddable Code" which has the title Forums to the right of it. Left click on that line, click copy, paste here and you are done.

User note. I copy the forum line for each pic and place it on a word document with a title. I can then go to my word page rather than hoping ImageShack will open, like it didn't most of today so that I can post pics at will.

That was you 16 years ago? Geeze, you must really be old now. ;) ;D ;D

use photobucket...

If it's any consolation to you I went through the same trial & error attempts trying to get it figured out. *Once you do it's "a piece of cake"
Use the message PREVIEW button to see if the photo appears as you would like it before posting. *(Note - the preview screen isn't an exact match for width as in the forum list.)

ImageShack has worked GREAT for me for close to 600 images. *Recently though I've been experiencing upload errors and other glitches when I try to upload images during the heavy net traffic daylight hours. *Off hours work much better when using ImageSahck.

Bandtailed pigeons? *I'd never seen one until I moved up to the foothills a couple years ago. *This spring a large flock used nearby oaks as they came and went from a feeding spot over a rise from me. *Got these two perched at the top of an oak after a late snow storm. *From the time I read your mention of them to the time I had the photo found, edited, and uploaded it took about 8 minutes. *"Hunt & peck" typing this post took much longer. *Hang in there you'll get it!
