I would just add that you can put the size limitations of the graphic inside the img brackets

Code:[img width=500]cool picture of cats.jpg[/img]


Max width I would use would be 950 to keep it looking cool.

@McGentrix,
I know.

Even with width 800, it looked too big to me and the post would be too long too.

But thanks for your comment..

@timur,

can you add images as a tag?

that will make it easier (for me, at least) to find it in the future.

thanx...

@jespah,
Yesd Jes we need more Tims

But let's add. my suggestion, we need for a way to get a quick link from my own pc

Of course I'd hafta remember to leave it on, but that's a minor consideration

@dalehileman,
We do not host images here on A2K. Space is not infinite and it is not free. You must host images elsewhere. That is not going to change any time soon, if ever.

Dunno exactly Jes whatcha mean by 'host,' but a2k wouldn't be required to do anything except access my link and replace it with your own (or by the photo itself), a couple lines of code

Apple, if you're listenin'.....at present it's just too involved to post an illust, but as an erstwhile inventor I was suggesting a method where in the posting I provide a link from my own pc from which a2k accesses the actual photo. One keystroke

Maybe two...

@dalehileman,
You have been told many times to add your photo to a photo hosting site. The last one mentioned was Tinypics, with Timur explaining how to use it, but there are also Imgur and Photobucket and others such as Flickr. You could likely find other photo hosts by using google. Those sites will tell you how to load the photo and transfer it to a site like a2k that does not host photos. The photo can be one of your own, or taken from web; for example, from Google images. With online photos, care should be taken to chose the right pixel width, which is usually around 900 or lower.

You keep talking about putting your photo in the cloud, and I have no idea what you are talking about, since I too am rather behind the times in the growth of the internet, with my obsolete computer, but even I can post images.
Maybe someone else will clear up your cloud problem.

Please avoid telling Jespah what to do, it only annoys the all of us mice.

Yea Osso I've no doubt you can, and I should be able also but I'm too lazy. Last time I used your way I got lost in the Cloud so I keep hoping if I keep complaining the Authorities will hear us

@dalehileman,
Oh, stop it. Read somebody's directions and don't try to invent.
Or get one of your sons to show you.

@ossobucotemp,
Or, go the the mac store in your area.

When I was first learning, quite befuddled about computers, we had shops in town that had people that could come to your house and help you. I still remember how fast that guy's fingers flew. Not all that expensive, well worth it. He both fixed stuff and explained things to me.


Maybe the difference is that I listened.
