Display attached images inline?

I've seen a few posts here where people have managed to display attached images inline with a post, rather than in a separate box at the bottom. How is that done?

I know about the "insert image" button, but that asks for a URL to an image that presumably needs to be hosted elsewhere. I'm talking about inserting images that have been uploaded here as attachments.

Be alert! America needs more lerts.

I use photobucket to store & share images. Once you open an account and load up some eye candy, there are multiple semi-automated sharing options....when the "IMG" option gets copied, you dump it directly into the sbf reply window....voila!

Ive never tried uploading a photo directly to the forum..
testing:

using the "attach files" feature:
Attached Thumbnails
Click image for larger version

ok..that made a thumbnail, which you can click to open the photo..
next test:

click on that thumbnail, it opens the full-size photo in a new browser window..copy *that* URL, which in this case happens to be:

https://www.snowblowerforum.com/forum...ens-wheels-jpg

copy that URL, click the "inset image" button, it says "please enter the URL of your image"..paste in the URL you just copied..and will it work??

success! it's a 2-part process, which is a bit unweildy, but it does work..
you could upload the thumbnails first, in one post, then just delete that post.

I dont see another way to do it, apart from using your own external image host..

Scot's got it nailed.

The only thing I would add is after you open the attached image in the thread, I simply right click on the image and you get a drop down window.
Among the choices you see are "Copy Image Location".
Left click on that choice.
Go to your composition window, click on the image icon at the top, and paste the info you copied into the pop up.
Click OK.
You should see a web address enclosed in the URL tags.
Then Preview Post to see if you got the image you wanted to display.

You may have to play around a bit to get the hang of it, but its a pretty simple process.
The same procedure applies to any image you find elsewhere on the net which you want to post to your message.
If its on the net, it will have a URL, and you can copy and paste it and it will display.

Hope that's understandable......

Lightbulb

Just to clarify a bit more in case my explanation was a little foggy or confusing, what we're talking about is converting an attached image a forum member has inserted into a post, and then "reusing" the image with the procedure Scot and I have described and in essence converting it into a full size image which can be inserted directly into text instead of being displayed as the little thumbnails at the bottom of a message.

* btw Scot, Why are all the attached images in posts displayed as thumbnails???
Is it to primarily save bandwidth???

I personally don't care much for the thumbnail attached images because they require additional clicks and mouse movements to see the full size image(s) with all its accompanying detail, as it came from the poster's files.
Just one man's opinion........
But as the French say.........c'est la vie.....

Regards,
Steve
