I resize all my pics before putting on MTO Gallery (or when I used Photobucket). I set the largest dimension to 1280. When they are too big they cripple the viewing for those of us with poor internet.

I'm not familiar with imgur, but is there an option to copy the 'code' of each picture? Paste this code into your forum message.
I'm not sure which is best to use, HTML Code, BB Code, URL etc but when I post from the MTO Gallery I choose BB Code then I think this option:



Thank you for the response.  IIRC, I tried them all and nothing shows up...it's weird, but I could have sworn I did seen the same thing work for other members.

I actually resize everything to long edge=1000, and even size under 500kb before uploading to imgur(or MTO)...but just could get it to work.  It kinda sucks because I couldn't tell any story with caption, and everything just show up as attachment.

Btw, do I need to apply for an account on imgur before it works properly to host?  Right now, I just upload without an account.

Imgur doesn't need an account for uploading pics.
But if you go that route, and you lose the link to the pic, it's gone.:ahhh

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

Thank you guys!

I wish I could share that with you now,  but I didn't use the account to upload that, so it is good as gone as DP said.  Since I'm doing the super 30 challenge, how about I come back tomorrow with a link to my next photo and seek you guys help? :salute:

Well... we can try....

I went to imgur and found a random pic. The only thing I could find was "Embed Post".... which gives me the following to copy:
http://<blockquote class="imgur-embed-pub" lang="en" data-id="nZmjnkH"><a href="//imgur.com/nZmjnkH">A cat with Rottweiler bodyguards[/url]<script async src="//s.imgur.com/min/embed.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

I don't know what to do with that. :dunno:

If from there I go to "Share" it gives me this:
https://imgur.com/nZmjnkH

I tried pasting this in this post, selecting it then clicking on the "Insert Image" button and got this:


Sorry, I'm just grabbing at straws here.  :facepalm:

Are you using mobile or on a PC. I've never found a good way using the mobile app. I use my desktop to post most of my pics from imgur. ?

If you open an account-( it's free )  you don't even have to bother resizing your pics. When you click on a pic you have several sizing options to post. I use the large thumbnail option which works great for the forum . Use the BBcode link

Like this




which gives you this

The problem with using  google  photo is that people that don't have a google account can't see your pics .

I'm only seeing one pic BTW .

Thank you very much for pointing out my mistake.  (^▽^)/ I misunderstood about Google Photos.  ┐(゚~゚)┌
I have researched more about it.

In conclusion, we can get a special direct link of the photo uploaded to Google Photos. (⊙_⊙)
And even people who don't have google account can see photo using this URL.

For example ↓↓

h t t p s://lh3.googleusercontent.com/LG6gUrt6v2gkV7zNpQu2eGRpXF85edxZfBkjddyKHNOjl3P-TTALsZb5R9kuqDbeFtXkf_-QUpq7HBh7twsFHwK_dxi8VkaurvwJDTJZCKwZz1K3bWYbtYeI4yXa0keV6eMLdDIk-w=w1962-h1542-no?.jpg
                     ↓↓

The problems are that Google don't officially provide this service, and that the way to get these types of direct link is somehow unusual.
We will probably not be able to do this someday. (´Д`;○)

Therefore, after all, the easiest way to get direct link is to use another image-hosting services like Photobucket. (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و

I'd like to come up with the process for posting pictures that takes the least number of steps and requires the least number of new accounts or software ...

any advice would be appreciated.

My current process:

take a photo on the iPhone and edit it on iOS.
Email it to myself  :think:
Resize the photo :crash:
Upload as an attachment on MTo

Its pretty simple... I just wonder if there's a way around having a zillion photos living in the nether regions of my email account,

I skip the email part, resize on my phone, and upload to MTO on my phone.

How to make direct-link using Google photo.

As mentioned earlier, you can create direct-link to Google Photo in an unusual way.
Google photo is free service, as you know. If you need more easy way, you may choose another paid service like imgur.com or Photobucket.com etc.

This method depends on the web browser.
You can do this with Internet Explorer and Google Chrome on Windows 10, or  Safari on Mac OS X. You can't do with Microsoft Edge(can't do step 7).
I have not tried another browsers.

This example uses Google Chrome on Windows 10.

1. Display the target image uploaded to Google Photo and click "Share".
   Click "Info", confirm the actual size of the image. (In this example, it is 2400 x 1600.)




2. Click "Create link".



3. Click "Copy" to get the link.



4. Open "New incognito window" from the browser menu.



5. Paste and go to the link get in step 3.



6. Click on the image to enlarge.



7. Copy image adress.



8. Create direct-link URL.

Now you get image address like;

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/fHxcfy8VX-Miloc2F6_OOgpRka797E2jXIARa9qAGTRiRbVvPZltBbPffn2rbtOnHIRub9oeA8ERK1SGMfxUuL_74EFBo5iCOOt0GH7iWLK4xs1CrVLbF5jOvuRDKScwuRSe7yIJEA=w1160-h773-no

To create dilect-link to this image, add "?.jpg" to the end of this address.

Direct-link URL is;
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/fHxcfy8VX-Miloc2F6_OOgpRka797E2jXIARa9qAGTRiRbVvPZltBbPffn2rbtOnHIRub9oeA8ERK1SGMfxUuL_74EFBo5iCOOt0GH7iWLK4xs1CrVLbF5jOvuRDKScwuRSe7yIJEA=w1160-h773-no?.jpg

"w1160-h773" at the end of the address is the size of the image displayed in step 7. You can change this to any size.
Maybe maximum image width that can be displayed is about w640.

For example;
w315-h210


w630-h420


w2400-h1600



9. Post your image.

Now you have finally obtained direct-link URL.
You can post this image using this URL with "img" code ↓
Code: [Select]
[img] https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/fHxcfy8VX-Miloc2F6_OOgpRka797E2jXIARa9qAGTRiRbVvPZltBbPffn2rbtOnHIRub9oeA8ERK1SGMfxUuL_74EFBo5iCOOt0GH7iWLK4xs1CrVLbF5jOvuRDKScwuRSe7yIJEA=w1160-h773-no?.jpg[/img]

Much easier to use imgur which is also free.

Oh, I'm sorry I misunderstand about Imgur.com. <(ll゚◇゚ll)>
Of course, if Imgur.com is easier, you should choose it. This method I introduced is too much complex!

Surely, if someone doesn't have a google account they can't see the pictures, when you just "Share" the image and use the link (up to step 3).

By using "incognito window", you can temporarily sign out your Google account (step 4 and later).
Fortunately, even someone doesn't have a google account can see the pictures with this image URL obtaining while signed out (step 7). ∑d(゚∀゚d)

...All the images I have posted so far are this tedious way. Please laugh. (´皿`)

I see now that you posted them by a different method. It does seem like a lot of extra work to get a pic posted .



Just because you asked   ;)
