    Saw @Vitolo mentioning the extra I. added to the BBCode when we paste them in the posting area.
    He said erasing I. that gets added after the //, and before the word imgur, should show the pic.
    More testing, let me know if pic shows for all.

    No, but we can see your image if we follow that protocol. It just won't appear in a published post.
    I can see your image now, but once I hit "post reply" it will be gone.

    Am I alone in that I am just holding my finger over the image icon (on a touchscreen) until a box pops up with options from which I select "view image". I am taking to the image on imgur, but it is not possible to see the whole image on my tablet screen I have to scroll up and down to view it properly so it's not ideal.

    But when I press back and return here the image is displayed normally in the post without me needing to reply. Is this not how it is working for other people? Because this is really no problem for me like this I only have to view the image once and then it stays properly displayed here on the forum in the post.

    Trying to view the image in the reply box is hopeless for me on my tablet screen you can barely see any of the image at one time because it is also shrunken down.

    This has been responded to earlier.... once you see it the image is "cached" on your computer.
    If you close page and clear cache, the image then will vanish again.
    All good though... we get to see the image using our various techniques that work with each of our PCs, and Laptops.

    Sock Puppetry at it's worst!

    Thank you for Clarifying that Vitolo, and yes I understand that I just wanted to make sure that others are able to unlock the images in the actual post in the same way I am myself. It just seems like a much better way to view the image than in a reply box where on my device I can hardly see any of the image at all at one time.

    So I was looking for some Assurance that this route is still working for other people so that I know people will have this option to view my own photos. Sincerely hope you are doing well at the moment Vitolo anyway and always wishing you the very best.:)

    Sorry everyone, I’m sure this has been answered but I actually can’t find the answer in the thread. I am accessing this website using Safari on iOS. I do not see IMG images. Is there a way to fix this?

    I did not post a pic.
    I was giving an example of what she should "left click" on.
    I just edited the post with a real image so you and others will not get confused.

    I think I'm gonna have to give up tinypic. At least once ever session, I get a popup for smokey the bear -- only you can prevent wildfires :lol:, & naturally I no choice but to click on it. The site is legit, but I it's a bitch to get rid of it on tinypic & I get stuck in a loop. :doh: I have several ad blockers & all are working, but not for this one. Has anyone experienced this?

    I’ve used the site a few times and haven’t noticed any issues. FWIW, I use Safari on an iPad.

    If anyone wants a good uploaded check out www.postimages.org It's really easy & intuitive & you can do multiple uploads at one time.
