For those of you wishing to resize images on your computer BEFORE uploading them to Imageshack/Photobucket/Datnet etc

The easiest options I've found are below - Both programs add 'Resize Image' to your mouse right-click menu, allowing you to resize your images from within windows explorer. You can resize one or many images at a time using standard windows range select functions (like ctrl-click, shift-click or click/drag lassoo)

You can choose from a range of size options, plus whether you create a new filename, or overwrite the existing - perfect! and free!

For Windows XP> http://download.microsoft.com/download/whi...wertoySetup.exe

For Vista> http://www.vso-software.fr/products/image_resizer/

enjoy!

testy

hmmm k

I'm uploading my pic to imageshack, copying the direct link to image. Clicking on the insert image icon, pasting the direct link in which is what has previously worked but now no love.

Can anyone help out a tech-tard? I know it's painful!!

I tried fixing your testy but it's going to need more helphuh.gif

The code is all wrong, you either paste the code imageshack gives you, or you put JUST the image url if you use the image button, DON'T use the code AND the image button.

Give me the code using the < code > tags/button and I'll show you, or have another try....

Thanks Jon,

Before when I could do this blindfolded I was in the habit of using the preview post to make sure it work prior to posting but now when I do that it seems to double up the code for some unknown (to me) reason.

so I'll try a few variations without the preview

below is the copied and pasted "Direct link to image" provided from image shack using the < code > tags/button

you need to insert IMG tags for it to work

[url=http://img377.imageshack.us/img377/3654/datsun.jpg][url=http://img377.imageshack.us/img377/3654/datsun.jpg][url=http://img377.imageshack.us/img377/3654/datsun.jpg]http://img377.imageshack.us/img377/3654/datsun.jpg[/url][/url][/url]
instead use:
[url=http://img377.imageshack.us/img377/3654/datsun.jpg][img=http://img377.imageshack.us/img377/3654/datsun.jpg]][/url]

something to try, turn off the rich text editor (RTE)

at the top in the 'control panel' next to your username click the arrow, go to my settings.... Posting Settings > Enable visual (RTE) editor? and uncheck the box.

I have turned this off as default for all (new only i assume) members.

still some issues, it is probably best just pasting the url to the insert image button/popup then the image will show here.

which as bbcode should look like this:

i see what is happening, a url tag is added by the forum when ever a url is pasted, even if it is in the img tags. if you edit it and remove the url tags it works?

weird, i'll look into it, failing that hopefully there is a fix in the next minor update.
