Posting photos full size

I've noticed in viewing posts that have photos that most of the time the photos are shown in the post as a thumbnail, then I have to click on the photo(s) to see it full size. But on a few threads I've seen that the photos are displayed full size from the start and it is not necessary to click on them to see the photo full size.

It doesn't seem to matter if I post a photo from the default page and drag and drop photo files or if I go to the "manage attachments" button and post from there, they still show up initially as a thumbnail.

The browser I'm using is Firefox. Another forum I'm active on also uses the vBulletin software and it does not display this characteristic.

I'll post a photo here to demonstrate.

Any suggestions to show photos full size from the start? Thanks.

Pretty sure your full size pics are on a shared photo site such as Photobucket (or a web site of some sort) - either are linked the image's address on the web. For instance, below this sentence is an image from a web site set up by Scot, a mod here.



Below this is an image from my PC dragged and dropped like your photo.

From the gallery here:






Just imbed the "IMG" html tags to the image, as offered in the gallery to copy, and this is what you get . . . (I'd give more detail, but if I key the full string, you get the photo, not the html example .. . .)

Hello there,

You will need to inline the photo once you have attached it.
If you go into "Go Advanced", there should be a paper clip icon.
Once you click it and uploaded the image, go back to the paper clip icon and clip the arrow button beside it.
That will inline the image and make it appear larger.

Let me know if you're still having issues with this.

Ed

Okay, I'm not seeing any paper clip icon. Where is it?

Testing

Will it include the thumbnail (attachment) as well as the full size?

Huh. Interesting. I've inserted full size previously "attached" images before but never tried doing it in the same post as the uploaded attachment.
I would call this a hack, but since the Admin taught me how to do it...

Perhaps I should start a new thread for this, but let's talk about snowblowerforums.com and pictures.
I've been so disappointed since VerticalScope changed their stuff several months ago. I always hosted my own images meaning I would upload photos to my own web space and then put the photos in my posts (not attached generating a thumbnail at the bottom of a post). My web space was a generic old http site and after the change, all they will allow now is https links. I don’t understand how a .jpg file will be dangerous, but will admit they must have had their reasons. All the photos I had in my threads are simply missing. The links exist, but they are hidden.
While we are at it….Re thumbnails from attachments…why do I have to click on a thumbnail…view the image and then click back to get back to the post that had the thumbnail. Click on the second thumbnail and so on always having to click “back” each time. At MyTractorForums (a VerticalScope product) you can click a thumbnail and then click a little arrow to scroll thru all the images in a slide show fashion. Can we at least get that feature here for attachments when there is more than one photo at the end of a post?

Linking from an https site is SOP now in the message board arena. Simply put, it's more secure.

I would also believe that it's certainly possible by using thumbs only for uploaded images, that's less "internet" to support...meaning, a thumb doesn't take as much browser data to support as far as loading a web page.

I know when I cruise certain other forums and posters link photos and especially videos from Youtube...there are some sites where if you have a post page with 50 possible replies and the subject is for example music (in video obviously), the page can take whole minutes to load completely.

The demands for this site of linked photos, given it's only 10 posts per page, are probably easier to support and therefore less costly. I don't know of a single forum that lets anybody upload an image full size into a post. Heck, most don't allow it at all - the image must be hosted off site. Those for me are easy with this site...I see the little "mountain" insert image icon above the posting box...easy peasy, just need to copy the image url beforehand and paste the link in. Just remember, you have to have the tab with the image pulled up, then right click on the image and select "copy image address"...that's what you're pasting.

My workaround to thumbs in a post is to right click the thumb to open the image in another tab...4 pics, 4 tabs.
