    Hi, Paul

    This forum software uses HTML tags, not ‘Bulletin Board’ url[\IMG] style tags.  There are details in the first post in the Welcome forum, here http://www.crewephotosoc.com/fora/topic/welcome/#post-678

    Use the “img src=” tag as described in the middle of that post, including the angled brackets < > and the URL in double quotes.

    Ok Ian, It’s on there … but how do I make it display properly?

    You just have to type this code into your post where you want the image to be inserted, with the full URL (e.g. the imageshack link to your picture file) replacing the letters URL:

    You’ve just attached your picture to your post, which doesn’t display it IN the post as you want.

    Instead, type the code above into your post (the space in ‘img src’ and the punctuation are important), and it will display like this  (Perhaps the image could do with being a bit smaller – you could use 600px longest side)…

    Hi, D

    I just edited your post, above, to make it work.

    Click the grey ‘Edit’ at the top right of the frame, and when the editor opens, press the HTML tab (again top right) to have a look at what you need to type.

    Hope this helps.

    I know it’s not the same as the url[\IMG] tags that the other forum uses.  This forum just uses different software, so different tags, that’s all. Should be just as easy when you get used to how to write the tag.

    Well done … I’m sure I will get there eventually! Unfortunately I replied before I realised that the edit facility would then be removed so still no wiser.

    This size is the smallest specific forum size (640 x 480) that windows gallery and imageshack offer without getting much smaller. Honest! 🙂 Next size down is 320 x  240.

    Try refreshing/reloading the browser page – should make everything re-appear as it should be.

    Regarding image sizes, I forgot that ImageShack has a set of fixed sizes.  640 x 480 is near enough, so don’t bother resizing the JPG in Photoshop or whatever.  I think Flickr uses 640, too, with 500 being the next size down.  So I’m sure we can live with 640 longest side.

    (Nice image, by the way! The soft natural light works really well, especially in the second one, where the skin tone is a bit paler.)

    Yes, you can use the “attach image” method, and click on the thumbnail that appears under the post to open it.

    But if you want to embed the image in the post, with text above and/or below it, just type the code into the post, like this

    replacing the letters URL with the full link to your image.

    Thanks for the instructions Ian.  I think I have my head around it now.  I will stop hijacking Pauls critique and have a go at posting one of my own lol  At least I think it has sorted a few things out about posting.

     

    Re Miss Kitty.  I never could make my mind up which of these I prefer.  They are a slightly tight crop ( I was wondering whether to take a shave off the bottom to the edge of her hair on the right) but as they were a grab shot I was lucky to get them.
