The picture size issue only applies to them being attached to the forum.   Embedding them in a post from Photo bucket or somewhere else is not an issue since they aren't taking up space on my server.

As for embedded photos being too large to easily view on the forum,  or software automatically resizes them for optimal viewing, so no issues at all with stuff from Photo bucket or other sources.

This is apparently no longer true, for what it's worth.

Sorry to complain, but I wish that you could zoom into attached pictures on mobile. I think you used to be able to do this because clicking the attachment would just open the picture up in the browser. Now it's a JavaScript "window" that shows the picture, and zooming in does nothing (the picture gets bigger for a split second, then gets scaled down again). At least in Firefox on Android that's what happens. I'm not sure if this is a new picture display thing or a new theme thing, but it's something I used to do on occasion that isn't as friendly anymore.

May it be as the Pattern has chosen.

I apologize if this has been discussed before (I searched for this and found similar questions but not exactly this one).

Isn't it possible to implement an automatic resize feature? I mean, since the max single file size is 1024KB anyway, the system can resize the pics to this size automatically and/or optionally based on user's choice during posting. I don't claim to be a coder but I'd like to give a hand if needed (searching for any plugins/add-ons, configuration etc).

I'm mostly a desktop user and am capable of resizing already, but this adds a lot of additional steps (transferring the photo from my phone to the PC, saving it to a temporary space, firing up the resize tool, saving the resized version and uploading to the site) which kinda -uhm- "unnice" :)  :waving:

I have had issues with the site not accepting attachment photos (uploads to Multitool.org Forum - previously resized below the 1024kb threshold, per the guidelines listed).

I am wondering if there is a way to use embed codes from Instagram photos ??

I have tried using the both the url][/url and img][/img with the url (embed code) options to no positive results.

I would also agree with ddogu (issues referenced that he has had, I have also). Auto resizing upon upload is a tool that works well on other sites I have used. I do my best to try and make sure that photos I post will be available into the future, as many times the photos related to a tutorial or something that may be viewed into the future. Hosting photos offsite, with only links to the photos, get broken when a user chooses to reorganize their photos into newly developed organizational folders. I really dosen't seem to work for a user to just keep one large mass folder with all upload photos, because various sites require differing photo size restrictions.

I can't get Flickr to work for some reason. My links are the same as others I've checked but my pics don't show.  Any ideas?

It opens fine in a new tab but doesn't show in posts

Try to get the actual picture URL.
I think that's your problem.

(I found this off the net. No clue who it is!)

The link ends in jpg.

The one you are posting doesn't. I think Flickr may be making it more difficult to do this.


BUT!
If you click to download the photo and go to view all sizes you go here on your Flickr:
https://www.flickr.com/ph...6@N06/28216020654/sizes/l
And then you can right click these and get your image addresses which DO work.



Taaa daa!

Thank you  :tu:

Now I just need to figure out how I do that on my phone and tablet as that is what I use 99% of the time to access the forum.

You need to get to the share photo info -  a little arrow bottom right of the photo page.  Click that, then BBCode, then choose the image size you want and copy the text in the box and paste into the post here.  This info isn't available on the mobile version of the site, and I can't get the desktop site on my phone at all, but I can force it on my tablet.

Thank you, I'll try that on my tablet tonight.  I've just figured out how to do what Megan said on the mobile site. I just can't do it from the app which is a bit disappointing. There's no easy way from google photo's either.

Yeah, under where you type your post is attachments and other options, browse to the pic and attach it.

Due to restrictions you may need to reduce the pic KB size down before attaching and viewing is best in the 1000px by 1000px range.
