I'm impressed... how did you do that?!
Actually, there's a more simple way to get the correct *.jpeg URL address than digging in the browser.
That's all :)
cheers @Dcls : )
Posting pictures from Firefox seems to be working better than it has in aaaaaages
No need to select multiple images twice
For your first test, with the URL https://flic.kr/p/2mjxuen that redirects to https://www.flickr.com/photos/193787043@N02/51405668271/...
From there, for instance :
Now you have the image address, just insert it jusing the "Image" button here when you post a new message.
Has been working for me for desktop Firefox for a while now. Not Firefox on Android, though.
@Velocio if there are images posted on another site I want to put into a thread, would you rather I upload the image to the forum, or deeplink them from the other site? From a hoisting POV I'd assume deep link but I don't know if there is an etiquette with other sites to re-upload rather than use their bandwidth you'd rather I (we) keep to
edit: oh read the first fucking post: upload is preferred
Entirely up to you.
If the image isn't valuable (you don't care if it breaks in 5 years) and you don't own the copyright... embedding is best.
If the image is valuable (i.e. a classifieds as it reflects provenance of past sales and the condition at that time) and you own the copyright (you took it)... attaching is best.
But largely I don't mind what you do.
Nine months later...
Aha, you're welcome!
Finally did it, thanks to dcls
Test 3 large scale
I can see in the HTML that you tried to insert an image with a link from Google Photos.
Unfortunately it won't work.
Easiest solution: Download the photo from Google Photos and upload it here.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
