Pro tip for posting images
« on: April 22, 2012, 02:13:37 PM »
For those who don't know, there is a handy code that you can put on your image code here to size them down.  It sizes the photo, but then allows it to be clicked on to scale it back up to original size.  Here is how you do it.

Note: real code will not have spaces before and after the brackets.
[ img width=400 ]...link to your photo here...[ /img ]

This is really convenient.  No more resizing in another program, and everyone can see the photo in full glory if they click. 

And here is an example.

Bumping this because I'm anal retentive and tired of scrolling across the page for big pictures.  :technical:

And some of you who also care are also probably tired of resizing your pictures before posting.

Now that's handy
Some say that he submitted a $20000 expense claim for some gravel

And that if he'd write a letter of condolance he would at least spell your name right.

I recommend using imgur. It's drag and drop, free, and it also means less storage/bandwidth usage for gstwins.

I prefer to use imgur also with this resizing tip.  That way the full res version of the image is linked but the image is reduced unless the person clicks on it.

Also, for my tastes, using imgur on my phone it takes too many precise touches in order to get the proper link for the size I would want.

+1 for the tip

Use http://postimages.org for free no account needed and they won't take it down. Plus they have all the shortcodes already formatted for you.

If you have onedrive you can generate embed codes on pictures stored there and copy the url into img tags.

Open onedrive in a browser.
Find Picture
Find the Embed button at the top
Click 'Generate HTML' on the right.
Choose a size
Copy the link
Use in post

Not sure what happens if you delete the picture - maybe it breaks the link, maybe it doesn't.
