Question: Posting Pictures

Hiya,

I've been trying to include pictures in a couple of my posts but I always get a repeat message saying
"It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image." I have tried using Photobucket.com, Flickr.com, and Postimage.org and I continue to get this same error message. I have tried to put pictures in using HTML code, BBCode, and have linked directly to the location starting with http:// and ending in .jpg/
Does anyone know why it's doing this and/or is there a place on here where I'm supposed to upload them first or something? Not to mention, I don't entirely understand what it means in saying it can't determine the dimensions because the above sites I mentioned allow you to choose the dimensions you want your image to show up in. I haven't had this problem with any other forums. Any help, advice, solutions, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you! :hug:

P.S. I'm aware I can just post the link directly to the image but I'd like to know how other people have been able to embed there's using the feature...

Hi. I presume you're clicking on the upload attachment tag then browse then add the file.

When you say
I have tried using Photobucket.com, Flickr.com, and Postimage.org and I continue to get this same error message.
are the images saved to your own computer?

Here's the link to the full instructions for posting images in messages: http://www.druidry.org/board/dhp/viewto ... 25&t=24482. Is this the way you've done it and it's still giving you trouble?

Hi, Selene.

I'm just checking... that post is almost 5 years old. Is it still right?

Aha!

I was trying to link the pictures in through BB Coding. I hadn't noticed the the tab bar below. :idea:

I see the tag now for uploading pictures... Here comes a test picture.

Testing. Test. Test. Testing...

EDIT: Voila! It worked!
