Photos in posts

Something I have been meaning to ask....Sometimes when I post a picture it gives a link, and sometimes it shows the actual photo in the post. I can't figure out what causes it.

I always upload my photos to the sailnet gallery and then use the insert image with the URL of the sailnet picture - jpg. Sometimes it displays in the post, sometimes it doesn't. It doesn't seem to be file size related.

Anybody know why ???

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things y%^&*.....oh never mind. 90% of the people on sailing forums already use that as their signature! I'm not a conformist.

I think it has to do with the "watermark" SailNet logo that appears on full size images. Links to full size images don't call the image directly but instead call the script that assembles the image and the watermark. You probably have no trouble embedding a thumbnail image because it contains no watermark and the link calls the .jpg image directly. To see the image full size, embed the thumbnail and then edit the link to remove "/thumbs" from the link. It will now call the full image without the watermark.

I think you're right...I am going to try putting the pics and embedding a link to another siute like Picassa or snapfish

If you give me an example of a picture hosted here you've had a problem with, I'll try to show how to work around the problem.
