Posting Large Pictures
« on: June 12, 2017, 06:09:21 PM »
PS. I am looking for techniques that you guys use here to circumvent the photo limitations of the Simple Machines platform which I otherwise really enjoy using.     I am looking for  convenient ways to post modern large photo files here.    Yes, I can and will use my trusted Irfin View to shrink as I have done through the years on similar forums based upon this platform,  but the extra time that it takes to do so is a deterrent when I am in a hurry.    Thanks.
The only way round it is to load the pictures onto a photograph hosting service and link to the picture.
I use Flickr and it automatically produces a selection of picture sizes which you can link to directly.
To include the full definition picture in the post the code is:
Code: [Select]
[img]url of image[/img]I usually include a thumbnail in the post itself which links to the full definition picture as otherwise it tends to muck up the format of the post itself.
The code for this is:
Code: [Select]
[url=url of full size image][img]url of thumbnail[/img][/url]
The BBCode can be inserted using the icons above the text entry panel.
I also use it to link to videos from a frame grab image. For example in this post.

Or, as an alternative, see Ian’s (milfmog) ‘how to’, posted here on this forum!

I’ve used it quite a bit and have been pleased with it.

Ah! Thanks, Duane
That explains how to do clickable small to large pics which I wondered about in another post.
