Image upload...

I wanted to upload an 82 kbyte jpeg picture file from Scotland, but again and again it comes back with a sailnet "Upload failed".

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks.

Sorry Rew, that one is beyond me I'm afraid. I have never heard of a photobucket account.

I thought I could attach a picture to the posting, but apparently it's not possible.

they were some scotland sailing pictures i wanted the net to see.

www.photobucket.com

Easy as making Scotch eggs Rock . . . click on the link above, follow the directions for setting up a new FREE account, then upload your photos from a file on your computer to your photobucket album.

When done, each album image should havefour codes beneath it:

Email & IM
Direct Link
HTML Tag
IMG Code

Copy and paste the second URL (Direct Link) into the URL box that appears after clicking on this icon in the SailNet message window menu bar:
Your picture should then appear in the post message window. I prefer to use the command over the Quick Reply below the last post - more options available.

True Blue...

Thanks.

I tried it, but it seems to think, that above all things, that I want a plasma TV, plonks the question right in the middle of the set-up menu, and keeps coming back to the same question, again, and again.

I don't want a plasma TV.

Would it not be simpler to allow an attachment, rather than to have to run the gauntlet of passwords, personal details, and pressure shopping?

The pictures were of my boat on a quaint Scottish Canal. The boat is a Union 36, the hull is deep blue, and the canal is the prettiest spot on this planet.

Thanks anyway.

Here is an easier way for just a pic or two that I use.

://teamsouthbound.com/pictureprocessor/default.asp

[I tried to paste the link but the site said I did not have a high enough post count yet. I guess I will post some menaingless stuff to get it up. Anyway maybe you can copy and paste the address...........]

In number two, use the drop-down and pick Florida Sportsman.

In number three, pick NO.

Copy what it gives you and then paste in the reply box.

There are lots of ways but I use this one. It just does one at a time though.

Try Flickr.com instead... much less obnoxious in its setup. Or you could get Picasa, and use their website. http://picasa.google.com

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

In my view, the ad banner on photobucket is less obnoxious than the incessant banner ads for cars that flash at the head of SailNet's refresh screen.

For minimizing advertiser blitz, set up your own website. Otherwise accept the need for "free" sites to advertise.

Just trying to help - not selling anything.

TB-

You need a good ad blocker... I don't see the ads unless I want to.

I do have an ad-blocker SD - my mind's eye simply blocks them out.

It's curious though that Chrysler seems to be SN's biggest advertiser. If I was in the market for a new car, I wouldn't go to a sailing forum to get info on one.
