Pics

Recommended Posts

I've just spent ages getting a photo small enough to post and now it tells me I've got too much content. All I've got in my attachment folder is 6 pics. 

What a stupid site. How do you delete the old content to post new and why can you only post so little? No wonder this site gets fewer users all the time. 

It's the hurdles you have to jump over to post something.

Use Imgur.  Upload your photo to Imgur, cut the the link on the right that says BBCode and paste it in your post. Easy. Here is a very nice album I like to listen to posted from that site.

Huh? I stuck a picture into the Almost Normal Band Life thread the other day by just copying and pasting it straight from Facebook - no imgur or anything else requiring up or down loading. If it was any more difficult than copy and paste I wouldn't even bother, but it worked fine.

I use FB too,  I just upload and I keep the photo private

Open the photo once in facebook

Right click and "Copy image link"

use the "Insert other media" tool in the new post edit window.

Change https to http..   and there ya go...

I send Polaroids to ksdaddy.  He takes them to FotoMat and they mimeograph them so he can take them to Grants for conversion to slides.  Then he projects them and takes a picture of the slides with his iFone.

Some forums limit how many images you can post at one time.   That might be what's happening.  Just break your post into 2 separate posts, each with 3 pics. 

The reason is to stop people from 'spamming' a thread with pics.

When I left in 2019 I had to make sure my card reader, PUNCH card reader, went back in inventory.  And the three mag tape units I had for a system that hasn't existed for over...dozen years now.  lolz

How do you delete photos you have on here? It says I've used up my allowance. I've only got 5 pics on there.

Where does it say that?  Where on your screen are you seeing that message?  I don't think it has anything to do with the forum, unless a quota had been set for you but not for me.

That seems like the same amount of steps I use to upload from Imugr.

Haha, I was laughing at that, That sounds easier than what I went through in the past. Before the forum changed. I have no idea  now, What works for me best is to send Rob, (Digger) for those who don't know who Rob is, a photo on Email,  and he puts it where I tell him LOL.  Works every time!

My wife has a Masters in computers, she can't figure it out and I asked her several times. My son is better but not as easy to get to him to look at it.  I used to be able to post photos off Photo Bucket and have Imgur now, but I cant get in to it. I can see a photo of my guitars but it stops there.

Maybe when she gets her Ph.d she can get it sorted out.

I have a Bachelors degree in Liberal Arts and I can do it.

I'm sure I can do it with a little help from Deb. She just needs to take the time to do it. She is really smart, Straight A student through schools and college. Me? Just not in to electronics. I told her before I die, I'm taking my computer and cell phone to the target range and see how many pieces I can shoot it in. Haha, That got a response!  "Oh No You're  Not!" I'm getting a Epiphone Riviera for my past 67th Birthday last April.  I'd like to post photos so I need to learn quick.

Presumably a lot of this tech didn't even exist when he got her Computer Science degree.  Maybe try connecting from a Wang mainframe. 😃
