Testing...  On preview, this is a blurry mess, but it's clear in the gallery.  Had to limit to width 100 and now it can't be read at all.  I thought I knew how to do this...

Thumbnail from gallery.

[Click to see larger image; click again to see this size. :)]

I think I can tell you what happened.  You put your cursor on the thumbnail image in the gallery, and copied the image url (or whatever your browser calls it).  Then brought it here and posted it between img tags. 

Your technique was perfect, except you need to open the image in the gallery before your "right click" etc.  Then you'll get the image url for the large image, and can cut down the display image as you describe (I cut the second image down to a width of 350).

If you're happy editing code, I can show you how to get the larger image from the thumbnails code...but I'll do that in a separate post. ;) ;D)

HTH,

Lisa

You're right, that's exactly what I did!  Duh.  I also ended up with king kong sized attachments in the M7324 thread because I gave up on this method.  Is there any hope for that? 

Thank you Lisa!

To get the image url from the thumbnail url in the SG Gallery:

If you look at the code for the two images in the previous post--one from the thumbnail, the other from the image, once you've clicked on the thumbnail and opened the image--you'll see this:

First url below is from the thumbnail image:
Code: [Select]
http://artisanssquare.com/sg/gallery/0/thumb_108-170118203825.jpeg
http://artisanssquare.com/sg/gallery/0/108-170118203825.jpeg

First url above is from the larger/original image:

Notice that the first one includes this additional text: 
Code: [Select]
thumb_
which is just after the gallery # and just before the image identifier.  So if you want to avoid the extra step of clicking on the thumbnail to get the image url, you can get the url from the thumbnail, and then remove the "thumb_" from the image url, and you'll have the same code you would have had, had you clicked on the thumbnail, etc.

HTH, :)

Thank you Lisa!

Yep.  There is definitely hope!  When you see that your image is "king kong sized", you just need to add a width "limiter" inside the opening img tag.  So in the large image (of yours) that we've been working with here, the code looks like this:

Code: [Select]
[img]http://artisanssquare.com/sg/gallery/0/108-170118203825.jpeg[/img]
The limiter, which goes right after "img" in the opening img tag, and before the closing bracket (of that opening img tag) looks like this:  " width=xxx"

Be sure to include the space at the front of it, and the "xxx" gets replaced with the number of pixels you want the width to be.  Here at SG, we suggest that for a portrait-orientation image like this one, that the xxx get replaced with 350, while for a landscape-orientation image the width can be specified as 500.

So your code, with the width limiter looks like this:

Code: [Select]
[img width=350]http://artisanssquare.com/sg/gallery/0/108-170118203825.jpeg[/img]
Which displays like this:

[Click to see larger image; click again to see this size. :)]

And that's all there is to it!--although if you want the parenthetical note under the image, you'll have to add it yourself. ;) ;D

Please give it a try here, and if there are any hiccoughs, we can help!

Thank you so much, Lisa.  That's all crystal clear.  I hadn't realized the attachments could be size-adjusted in the same way.  I'll go look at that again!

Almost.  What we've been working with here are direct-links to images hosted somewhere on the web.   In this thread, you and I have been working with images hosted in SG's gallery.  You work with those images in the same way you would with images hosted elsewhere on the web.

What you've done in the M7324 thread is attaching the images (using the "Attachments and other options" link under the editing window.  You can tell because all of the images are below a line at the bottom of the post--instead of being placed as you choose in your post...some text before, some after...whatever you like!

Attaching images to a post (instead of direct-linking to images hosted somewhere on the web (including SG's gallery) is very limited.  Those images are likely to get deleted (during a periodic board clean-up).  You can't put them where you like in your post (vis-a-vis the text).  You can't see a preview of them; they're only visible after you post.  And if they're too large when you post them, you have to downsize them on your computer, delete the images you already attached and reattach the downsized images. :P.

I always suggest that it's much easier to work with direct-linked images.  ;) ;D

HTH,

Lisa

Helen, you can click "Attachments and other options" just below the window where you write your post and attach a photo from your computer that way. Just follow the size limitation noted there.

Well, Judith there is pixel size and byte size. As you can see, on the attachments, 3 photos cannot exceed 10.5 MB

For pixel width, 350 pixels for portrait and 500 for landscape.

Play with it and see  how it measures up in size.

Look at the pixel size, Judith, it's still 600x800  and should be below 500 pixel width. So go below 1.0 if you can.

The app I have does size, not pixels. This is the only place where using photos from my iPad or phone is an issue. I don’t have the enthusiasm to go back to find another app. Perhaps someone can recommend   I have no interest in photo hosting site.

It doesn’t matter enough to spend more time on it right now

You can see your pixel size right under the photo you attach (see your post above) You can see that the pixel size is 600x800. So you can edit that post, remove the attachment, and go down to .9 or .8 MB for posting that photo here.

I agree, posting photos on this site is a PITA. But that's what our hosts offer, so there's not much choice but to follow a more convoluted procedure than is available elsewhere. I'd apologize for it, since I'm one of the admins, but I grumble about it too! So much for solidarity with our hosts where photo posting is involved! ;D

You're right, for this photo, 600x800 is not too huge (you're close enough). Keeping the photo width under 500 for landscape and under 350 for portrait seems to work the best. Just remember that large photos take longer to load for our members who have slower internet connections, so it's a courtesy but not a requirement.  :)

Thanks for the help Kathryn. I was able to get it small enough, but of course lose the quilting detail. It’s okay, posting photos not that big a deal for me. My current entertainment is long arm quilting.

Oh, Judith, don't sacrifice too much detail! We'd all love seeing your quilts in as much detail as possible.

When photos are inserted within the body of a post (via a 'blog or photohosting site), we can always click on the smaller image to get to the original larger size.

But that option is not available in the Attachments option of posting photos. Whatever size is there is the only size that can be viewed.

As with everything, use your best judgment. If the larger photo size suits you when attaching photos, especially when you are pointing out detail, then by all means go for it.  :)

And BTW, that quilt is soooo cute, and nicely done!

Best wishes,
Kathryn

Flicker doesn't make it easy but if you go to your photo and choose the little curvy arrow that will say "share photo" if you highlight it ... you need to click on that and then choose embed and you can copy/paste that and find <img srce=xxxx where xxxx is the url for the jpg file.  I noticed the embed also has a dropdown with different sizes so you could probably click the whole tag.  I didn't try it but you can experiment.

So for your first photo you can see this URL:
https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4757/39352162425_9961ea1242_z.jpg

Maybe regular Flickr users know a quicker way.  I am not a flicker user so I am not sure.
