You're doing great!

I like the larger size, but the choice is yours. ;) ;D

Let me know if you'd like to try anything else, for instance:

Some people don't like the caption line, for instance, and it's possible to get rid of it.

Sometimes the sizes Flickr offers (you clearly know how to choose different sizes on Flickr) aren't the size you want.  It's possible to use the board's software to make an image smaller and to customize the size.

Just let me know if you'd like to try anything else...and of course you can try text (highlight a word or two), and start clicking the buttons over the editing window, and then click "Preview"  to see what you get (it shows up over the editing window). >:D :smug:  When you like what you have, click "Post."

Have fun (and let us know if you have questions)!

HOW AMAZING IS THAT!!!

Let me just try that out....  Here is a picture of the Sure-Fit Designs blouse my sister made with the pattern I drew out for her from the dress kit, which I only make blouses with:

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-y8fVIMyuklU/Ty8BYGE8URI/AAAAAAAAAu0/u5Mtfe8BNhE/s1600/j-2.jpg

Well there is a long description for something.  How do I turn it into a picture????

I better practice some more ...  I practiced, but can't figure it out.  Guess I'll go read that place you told me to go to again.

Thanks,
Joy
Joy,

All you need are img tags around your code.  You get img tags by clicking the first button in the second row above the editing window (it looks like a little picture frame.  When you do that, your cursor will be between the tags.  Just leave it there, and paste the image url right there.  It will look like this:
Code: [Select]
[img]http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-y8fVIMyuklU/Ty8BYGE8URI/AAAAAAAAAu0/u5Mtfe8BNhE/s1600/j-2.jpg[/img]
which, when you preview or post, will look like this:



Give that a try :pinkpom:...and when you've got that down, if you want it smaller, you can do that without making a change in your blog...

Hope to see you here soon!

Lisa

Hello , I am extremely new to the Stitcher`s Guild . I have been lurking at this site for some time and finally thought I should be brave and join . I love reading all the various posts written by so many talented and nice sewists.  :)
I live in Australia ( rural Victoria ) and just love sewing . I really like to make things in my spare time but want the finished items to be useful hence why I love sewing. I have been sewing since I was 13 ( I am now in my mid 40s ) and I am basically self taught. I have learned so much from reading various websites . I also started a blog last year which was  fun but was a very steep learning curve for me as I am fairly computer illiterate -computer studies were only just being introduced in my final years of school  .
I recently finished sewing a kimono type top so I will try to post a picture here .

Quick question, if I post a picture from my hard drive, it will eventually be deleted during clean up, and if I post on a flicker or some other site these pictures will stay with my posts.

That's exactly right, as long as you don't move the picture you've linked to on Flickr or another site, the image will stay with your post.  Even if the thread that the post is on is ultimately archived off Stitcher's Guild, the link to the image will stay in the archived thread, so someone who wanted to see it would have the web address to go and see the image that goes with the post.

HTH,

Lisa

I like your second size best (so far...) Sliderule! :applause2:

BTW, if you link to a too-large (even absolutely enormous) image, you can control the size included in your post here...let me know if you'd like to know more! ;) ;D

Thanks, Lisa - I may need some help.  I'm trying to use my Google+ account as a photo hosting site, and I don't think I am supposed to do that.  I'm sort of working in the dark here with the image sizes.  Let's see what this one looks like.

ETA - this is really too large, but better resolution.  I'm changing the image size in my photo editing software because I can't figure out how to do it in Google+, uploading to Google+, and linking from there.

You can definitely link to a Picasa Web account, even if you can't link to Google+ (I've never looked at the terms of Google+ for direct linking).  I actually like the size you posted--large enough to see details.  Even larger can be useful.  But if you want it smaller, you can do it here without using your photo editing software.  For example:


The format is fairly easy.  You just need to add a width spec in the opening img tag which is smaller than the width (in pixels) than the image you're linking to.  So if you want an image whose pixel size is 400 pixels, you'll add "width=400" at the end of the opening img tag.  It would look like this:
Code: [Select]
[img width=400]Note that there is a space between img and width, but nowhere else inside that opening img tag.

Give it a try! :)

  width = 1000
width = 500
width = 400
 Hmm, the original image was supposed to be 1020 x 768.  It seems to have lost something in translation.
However, this is a neat simple solution.  Thanks, Lisa!    :)

ETA:  I just looked at the original image size, and it's much smaller than I thought.  Something squirrelly may be happening in Google+.  Using Google+ is probably not too smart, but I have the account and am not using it for anything else, so I thought it was worth a try.  I am actually amazed that I can link to it.  That doesn't seem very secure, does it?

  small photo in Google+ album listing
  what you get by clicking on small photo to get larger image on screen

Now I understand what I did.  I would have thought the larger image on the screen would contain more pixels, but it seems to be the other way around.

Hi Qshift!

Nice to see you here!  Let me see if I can help w/ your Flickr link. :)

It looks like the url you used was the page url (the web address you put in your browser) instead of the image url needed to show us your image. 



Flickr has a requirement that when you're direct-linking you must also include a link-back to the Flickr page.  Fortunately, they've also made it easy for you to get the code you need.  You'll find details about how to do that "here."  You'll find more general instructions about how to post images "here"--you'll be using method #2.

Note that you can use the general method while complying with Flickr's requirements...you just need to include a bit more code.  Take a look at those two posts and tell me which method you'd like to work with, and give it a try! :pinkpom:

Hope to see you back here soon!
