    Please use this thread for testing how posting pictures works for you, and any snafus you come across.

    Also, to recommend any good new sites, a la georged's post a few days ago.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    @bassbug: It's not my model of Oddball's Sherman tank. It's a photo from the internet. I'd like to get one, but it sells for $259 by King and Country models.

    Besides, I need all the scratch I can muster to keep this OD project going.

    That is one beautiful Jeep. What year?

    I'll make you a deal on the Sherman....you buy the kit (Tamiya please. It should be around $40) I'll build it, paint it and weather it. We just have to find a way to ship it back to you in one piece

    I used to build and paint model WW2 warbirds. I made a B17 for one uncle that was shot down in a Fly Fortress. The good news was he survived. The bad news was if sat out the war in a German POW camp.

    Made another bomber for my Canadian uncle that flew in a Lancaster during WW@.

    And, then I made an attack transport ship for my Dad who was part of a Higgins boat crew in the Pacific during WW2.

    At any rate, my jeep is a 1955 M38A1. The manufacture of this model jeep began near the end of the Korean War (1953).

    Nope, Toronto, Canada.

    The Lancaster is in the war plane heritage museum in Hamilton. I go there occasionally as my daughter lives there.

    EDIT: She lives in Hamilton, not in the museum

    I don't have it, but I've heard great things about it.

    I do have two of the TankArt volumes from Michael Rinaldi. Vol 1, "German Armour" and vol 2 "Allied Armour" They are fabulous books that go into detail on weathering. The photography is excellent and Rinaldi goes into a lot of detail. If you get a chance to browse through the books I would highly recommend it.

    My local hobby shop owner is a friend of Michael's and has arranged for a small group demo/seminar by Michael in May. I'm really looking forward to it.

    Thanks jpmcwjr! I'm moving away from photobucket.com and over to Imgur.com. Just wanted to give the process a shot. The site is about 1000 times faster than photobucket and easier to use so I think I'll make it my new photo home.

    The pipe is a WDC Milano "Resino Processed". I assume that means some sort of heated oil bath to remove the resin from the wood. It is a very light pipe, but it's also had a very long time to dry out!

    Here is another shot:

    IN part trying to keep this thread noticeable until it can be linked to a sticky.

    Went to Imgur to look over photos, and realized I don't remember taking this one, and I don't put other's photos into my album! Mystery.

    Once your photos are on a photo hosting site (such as Imgur.com; Photobucket; Postimage; Dropbox, etc.), or on virtually any site, select the full image, then Control-click (Mac) or Right-click (Windows) on the image itself, then choose copy image location. Now paste that URL (the full web address, which should end in .jpg) into the IMG box in the reply window of the thread you're posting to.

    Test here if ya' like!

    Here's your picture balkisobrains

    Here are the driections on how to share a picture from flickr:

    Getting the photo URL

    You can get the URL of your own images on Flickr.

    Click on the photo you want to share to open it.
    Click the Download icon (ie, Downward arrow)
    Click View all sizes.
    Select the size of photo you want.
    Right-click the image | select Copy image URL or Copy image Location.

    Thanks guys, I know how to post pics, was just trying something different that did not work.

    Can't speak for imgur or post image, but Photobucket is a steaming pile of garbage as compared to Flickr.

    My wife and I have used Photobucket for over a decade. We have thousands of photos stored there and pay $29/year for additional storage space. If there was a way to simply transfer the photos to another web host, we'd do it in a heartbeat. Photobucket sucks! We either have to keep using it or lose our photos. I suppose we could download and transfer each photo, one-by-one, but that would take weeks.

    As to main storage, I'd never use a commercial (or private) cloud. Those sites are fine for sharing photos, but not as the main storage.

    I'd download them all asap and keep them on my computer, with a backup. I would certainly hope there's a way to down load bunches at a time.

    Actually, from my laptop, I don't see hardly any of the pictures posted. Imjur is the worst, as I can see none of these, plus as a mod I cannot correct them. Photobucket is the easiest to use, and they all show up fine from all of my devices. yeh, I hate their pop-ups, but I only ever upload pictures of pipes, and then switch over to here, so I don't dabble around much in it. In and out, easy peasy. Give me easy to use and people being able to SEE my posts.

    Honestly, I don't know why people keep suggesting imjur. You might as well just suggest they don't post any pictures.

    As a moderator, I would highly suggest Photobucket. But, as an individual you are free to chose, but if you want your pictures to be seen...

    This is the only place I belong where I cannot upload pictures directly from my computer. Well, you CAN, to your album, and I'm back to doing that as per Duane. Easy and works well enough. But I don't store pictures or anything on the cloud. Certainly not backup. No need to. Anything sent via the web is insecure, no matter what anyone tells you. I tried Photobucket and it sucked and then they spammed me to death with ads. In time I suppose I'll try Groups Io or Imgur. But just as an intermediary for posting here.

    To cabinfever, never store anything anywhere you don't have backed up elsewhere. If you value those pictures and Photobucket is the only place you have them, I would get them the hell off of there.

    Michael, sounds like you need your browser updated, try a different browser, or maybe some drivers updated or plug-ins installed.

    I went through a whole update and trying out new browsers when pipesandcigars went offline. I still cannot see them. I am using public access wifi. In our town the internet is completely free. However, something P&C did made them impossible to find now, and I have never been able to see imjur posted pictures for as long as I have been here.
    So, you can use imjur, but my guess is that everyone who use using public wifi is not able to see your pictures.

    Wonder if your public wifi has a bandwidth problem?

    Me, I think I'll just keep posting pictures to the album here as needed. It is a real PITA to me to use any of these photo-hosting sites--- I'm used to email based forums such as Yahoogroups where I can upload pictures to their central files or just attach them to the message.

    My camera is set up to instantly upload pictures taken with my camera to photobucket, and it makes posting a picture to here as easy as just three clicks. It makes driving while posting selfies so much easier.

    I am so old-school! I didn't know people could even do that. If I take a film photo, I digitize the negatives or with digital camera, upload all into my computer for further post-processing. It all stays there. If I share a picture with anyone, it is usually directly via email. I'm anything but a Luddite, but I use as little consumer electronics as is possible. Don't even own a cellular phone anymore.

    So, Michael, what happens when you read this post that has a nice photo from Imgur's site. Message? Blank screen with a notice? Nada? Exact wording would be good.

    OMG, I see we could have a 75 post thread: Photobucket sucks! No, Imgur sucks!!

    Anyway, let's get this wascally wabbit.

    I'm a bit the opposite; uploading to the site still takes me longer than to Imgur or Postimage. Then linking is still the same. And our site has a limit on size, which doesn't matter for most pix, but some benefit from more pixels.

    This is a way to add photos to your post:

    Once your photos are on a photo hosting site such as Imgur.com, select the image, then Control-click (Mac) or Right-click (Windows) and choose copy image location. Now paste the URL into the box that pops up under IMG in the compose reply window of the thread.

    Here's a way to go. Emphasis on a.

    If you want to use the site's album (images tend to be smaller than hosting site's size)
    1.) Login
    2.) Go to My Account (may have hit Home button first) and mouse down to Album.
    3.) Choose Upload Picture (navigate to photo you've given a sensible name to), be sure to then hit Upload.
    4.) Go back to Album, click on thumbnail to open full size image. Right click (Windows); Control Click (Mac) and select "copy image location" (its URL).
    5.) Return to your reply window in the thread and click on the IMG button at the top of the compose window.
    7.) Paste the image location into the window and click OK.

    We...pay $29/year for additional storage space...Photobucket sucks!

    That's interesting that you pay and still think that it sucks. Doesn't paying get rid of the pop-ups and re-directs that grind it to a halt? Or do you hate it for some other reason?

    Using "Flickr" actually winds up taking me a couple more clicks to get to each link that I need to copy, but there are no pop-ups or re-directs, and everything runs very quickly when I am on there, so I actually save time, and with less agg.

    On some of these posts, I just don't see anything, until I click to moderate it, and then when I see that it is an Imjur or google img, I just assume that it is only me that cannot see it (now). Same when someone posts about a pipe that they want to show off, using one of these. I have clicked and meddled with the post to try and help the poster, only to find that it was only me who could not see the posts.

    So, now I just moderate the posts that have the broken link symbol. to help their images get seen.

    I can see these from my iPad, and when I am on the wifi at The Briary, but 90% of the time I come here I am in my studio working, using city wifi.

    Paying does get rid of most of the ads and pop-ups. But, I have to log in EVERY TIME I go to Photobucket....which is a pain. You cannot stay logged in. So, when I get to Photobucker and before I log in, I get all the ads and pop-ups anyways.

    I also dislike Photobucket because you cannot do a search of your own photos. You can do searchs, but the photos that result from the search are from all Photobucket users.

    Even when I'm logged in, Photobucket runs slower than what I think it should.

    As soon as I get sometime, I am going to download all our 1000s of photos off of Photobucket to our hard drive. Then, I may upload them to another service or just leave them on the hard drive and use a free service like something like https://postimage.io/ to get a URL for the image I want to share on a forum.

    Hmmm, I never have to login to photobucket. I also only get a pop-up once, usually when I start to scroll through the images. But, after I hit the "x" it never send any other pop-up. Yeh, I think your right about being slow. When I snap a picture on my phone, I have to wait like 30-45 seconds before I can take another picture. I am guessing that it is sending the image data.
    I don't pay them anything, and I have been using it since I signed up here, 4 years? When I snap a picture using my normal iPhone Zoom Camera app, it immediately loads the image, and directs me to the photobucket app and the image that was just taken. I then click on "direct" and then navigate back to here and load the img.

    I have had a couple of guys ask me how I set this up. My daughter did this for me, as with most of the things set up on that magical demonic box, but she says that it is inside the settings. I have gone through three phones since being here, and each time I load my programs onto the phone, the settings all follow me, so that I don't have to reset the settings.

    But yeh, in this world of instant websites, 30-45 seconds seems like an eternity, unlike the days when we would send our prints to someone via snail mail after waiting two weeks for the drug store to process them.

    Michael-

    I wonder if being on city wifi is the deal.... There may be a size limitation for downloaded JPEGs. This site's and photobucket's sizes are smaller than Imgur's.

    See the above? If not, what message or symbol do you get?

    No Jon, I don't see any images in your post. I am certain that it is the wifi, but not sure if it is the image size. I can watch movies in HD, so... I am not technologically sophisticated though.

    I think it may have something to do with not seeing P&C also. I think they set something in their website update that makes my city block them now, but I can still see smokingpipes. so, guess who gets my money now.

    @cosmic, I don't have to log into Photobucket to see my photos or get the URLs for the photos. But, if I don't log in, I get continuous ads and videos popping up which slows everything way down.

    I pay for Photobucket because the number of photos we have stored there exceeded the storage space they give away for free.

    M-

    Can you see this one? It is from this sites album.
    Have you tried a different browser? Something is odd. I use Safari, with backup browsers Chrome and Firefox. Not sure what second best one is for Windows.

    BTW, this is a selfie I took in Rome when I was lounging around one of the fountains.

    JP, I see all of your pictures and everyone else's just fine. I'm using Firefox 52 on a Mac connected by FIOS IP. Michael, one thing you can do to test your local wifi bandwidth is try reducing the image size down to something like 600 X 400 or something like that. If that goes through and you can see it here then you know what your problem is. That won't change not seeing larger image files by others but it will give you an idea what the problem is.

    Another thing you can do is take your laptop somewhere outside your local wifi and try connecting from there.

    Toob, if it was just me, that would be one thing, but I have seen several others complain about not being able to see Imjur and google. And, as I said, yes I see it on my iPad, and when I use The Briarys wifi. It is just using public wifi, which I imagine most folks living in cities and towns that offer this would do.

    Yes, that's me dressed as Neptune!

    Toob- Michael has plenty bandwidth, able to stream HD! And it's fine on another WiFi node that he uses.

    Michael- Again, seeing what happens- or not- with another browser could be telling. Also, posting when another cannot see an image could help hone in on the problem.

    I have Chrome, Firefox, IE, Opera, and Maxthon. Do I need more? I mostly just use Chrome and FF, but I had the others loaded when my daughter was building my website.

    Hah! Yeah, you need the original Navigator!!

    I was imagining you use one browser when you're logged in as a Mod, and did not know you have tried the others to test photo-viewability. Have you logged in on another browser not as a Mod after cleaning cache?

    I am trying to help, not bug the XXXX out of ya'!

    Yes, yes, yes, when pipesandcigars vanished from the face of the earth fore me, I have been deleting caches and rechecking. well, not so much the last few days. I'm pretty sure that the pictures, nor P&C are going to just miraculously appear at this point. I'm pretty sure that I am correct about the wifi.

    I am sure you're right about that, too, but still hadn't given up hope it could be over come. Guess by now I have!

    "img" is lower case, and you had a "> at the end of the file path.

    Thank you. I've tried various photo hosting sites and have come to the conclusion that they are all basic bullshit, with their own quirks and idiosyncrasies. Tried the wife's Photobucket, and still failed. Sadly, I know now that it's just ME.
