OK..I think I have it figured out how to post a photo. Here's one to start with:

That's an excellent start and a great shot.

If you would like to upload a larger size file straight from your Flickr page,this is the way that I do it.

Click on the image that you want share from your main photostream.That takes you onto a single view of your chosen image.

Next,look at the bottom right of the image,you should see four symbols.Click on the one that looks like and underlined downward

facing arrow,that will open a small drop down menu.In the drop down menu click on all files.Clicking on the all files option will take

you onto downloading option.The first image usually shown there is a file size of 1024,which is an ideal size for posting.Right click

on the image and choose 'copy image',from there you can paste the image directly into the post you want to make in your topic of

choice.

That's the way I do it,maybe some of the other members have a different or easier method,but it works for me.

Shaggy,

I did all this, to get this message: You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community.

CB,that's unfortunate,are you trying to post from Google Chrome by any chance?

I have a page on G+ also,and when I try to post any images using Chrome,also get the same message about not being able to use that 'image extension.

Doesn't seem to be a problem when I am using Firefox as my browser though,can upload and share images from my google account.

Would be nice...

The only way for me to post pics fast is via the ThaiVisa app from my iphone/ipad in questionable quality.

Uploading pics direct from my HD in the ThaiVisa reply web version is near impossible, annoying, off-putting, frustrating, time wasting, low quality etc. ...

Would like to load from flickr, to see if the quality improves...

Shaggy,

I did all this, to get this message: You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community.

My pinned topic details the methods to post - Posting Images - Guidelines

If in Flickr, don't use the link that is in the address bar, that is not the image but the page the image is on and why you get that message as there is no image extension. As mentioned, right click on the image itself then click Copy Link Location (that is FF, Chrome will say Copy Image Address). Then use the Image icon to paste the URL into it.

The best way to test if the copy is correct is to open a new tab and paste the link you copied into it. You should see the full image and the address bar will show if the extension is correct such as .jpg, .png, etc. Other sites, the method will be the same.

//edit - the Flickr version will generally be better even though it is still reprocessed and compressed at the Flickr end, but believe less processing then Thaivisa's attachment processing.

I'll update my pinned guideline to be more specific with sites like Flickr when I have a chance.

Several members have helped me on Flickr setup....Thank you! thumbsup.gif I have not been able to do it yet, having gout and pain killers sort of wipe out my ability to concentrate on doing "new things"

I got that "cannot use extension" message the day I did try... when I am back to "normal", I will try again! wink.png

OK, this is how I do it using Flickr, my MBP and Safari:

  1. Go to your image in Flickr (make sure you are at the screen where you assign groups, keywords etc.)
  2. Select the download icon below and to the right of your image
  3. Choose the size you want (I recommend 'Large'
  4. Right click on the selected size and choose 'Copy Link'
  5. Now go to TV forum
  6. Select the 'image' icon on the top of the image reply area (if not visible, choose 'More Reply Options' next to the 'Post' button. This should make the 'image' icon visible (looks like a little monitor).
  7. When you select the 'image' icon, you will get a pop-up box where you 'Paste' your copied link. This should load the photo into the reply box (give it a moment, especially if it is a big file).
  8. Press post and you're done!!!!!

Hope that helps thumbsup.gifthumbsup.gifthumbsup.gif

Just seen this thread and the discussion about posting from Flickr.

This is what I do:

1. Select the image you want to share

2. On the bottom right of the screen showing the image, there are four icons, the third from the left being a sideways pointing arrow (mouse over it and is labeled "share"). Click on the arrow.

3. There are 4 options. Choose BBcode. and then select the size of image you want to share.

4. Copy the code and then just paste it into your TV post.

If you are not sure whether you have done the right thing, click "more reply options at the bottom of your TV post to see a preview.

The resulting image will be displayed like this:
