I have tried to attach photos to a reply with no success. Suggestions?

 

When writing in this Forum you have a window below "Attach files" but this option seems not to come

up in the  other common Forums when writing a reply

I noticed now that this window/option only appears when you start a new topic. Is that that so?

This forum provides a limited amount of space per user for uploaded files, and I used up my allotment years ago. Now if I want to post a picture I find someplace else to upload it and then click the icon in this interface that looks like a picture frame and put the url there. I have been using dropbox, but dropbox has announced that all its “public folder” links will break on March 15th (beware the ides of March). So all the graphics I have posted here since I ran out of space will disappear.

Where are people uploading images to share now? I have yet to find something that works, and though I am within my limits for upload here - there is no upload button! Any help appreciated

Another site I use suggests that you upload your JPG to https://postimage.org/ and you’ll be given a URL - it will also give you the thumbnail code as well.

 

This is a book I just bought for example

 

omb319.jpg

 

if you click on the image, it takes you to the postimage  site for the full version.

 

You can also get a direct link and wrap it in img tags or use the insert image button to get the full version directly:

 

omb319.jpg

 

I am sure there are other sites that offer the same facilities.

Thanks for this - This is now working for me.

 

My main issue was that my adblocker was stopping some of the javascript working - but this is vey helpful :) Thanks!

I use PhotoBucket.


Photobucket now seems to have ended 3d party linking for free accounts, which is a pain. Will have to find a different option now. The popstimage site above looks good.

I've tested this on c.net and it seems to work perfectly for now - https://postimage.io:)
