Having trouble figuring this out. It may not be possible...

Oh, maybe it CAN be done...

OK, I could have fixed that if I had gotten to it early enough. Now I know.

So, in case anyone is interested, when actually attaching photos it is much harder to combine posts than when you are linking to a hosting site. When doing the latter it is just like a simple post cause it is going elsewhere for the image. The attached image is just a little harder to combine and actually seems to require attaching it again rather than just pointing to the previous attachment. Ya cant just copy it like you can do with text.

Live and learn. That second photo disproves the Golden Girl made up asphyxiation from Goldfinger.

So, are you guys intending to bring back local image storage or will we be using hosting services for the foreseeable future? Not a problem for me but obviously many users don't really get how to do that.

Nevermind. I noticed in another thread that you intend to bring it back.

Currently you need to use a image hosting site like imgbb.com. You upload a picture there and then point to it in a link here. I have described that a few times in this thread. Here is one of those descriptions...

I put asterisks in the image links to stop the images from showing. You don't want to use the asterisks.

Imgbb.com is only one of several image hosting sites...

But what happened to posting pics directly on this site?? Am I crazy or wasn't I doing that a few weeks ago?

The mods are working on something apparently and have temporarily suspended attaching images. It's not hard to use hosted images and doesn't require FC to give up storage space for them. We used it this way for years.

Testing Flickr to see if I can use one of their various resized download links so that I can post images w/o having to manually resize them to something the forums won't reject with an ambiguous message.

Test #1 - Original Image (9504px x 6336px), 100% chance of failure:
51632333830_8006b637b5_o_d.jpg


Test #2 - Xtra-Large Image (6144px x 4096px), likely gonna fail:
51632333830_9d9915633d_6k_d.jpg


Test #3 - Large Image (2048px x 1365px), this one should work:
51632333830_4723ab73ba_k_d.jpg


:: drum roll ::
