Embedding photos

Is there a way to embed a photo image in a post that is hosted on another site. Are there any BBC codes that work on this new forum software like "[img]photo url[/img]".

    I've been trying to figure out the same thing! I'm sure I could, it would just take a few minutes.

    I found that the insert photo button works well for an isolated graphic (on it's own window) but the bbc codes on flickr don't seem to work. So for me to post a photo I either upload directly, which leads to having a small preview, or a three step process to get to an isolated or static photo from flickr. It's a little frustrating but working around a problem has always been the way here.

    So I copy the url info for this isolated or static photo from flickr, click the little photo icon towards the right of the menu bar, paste said url address over the http:// that's already there in the provided window and viola!

    Yes, I don't think the photo icon was a live "hot button" when I originally posted this thread.

    OK, so the photo button is live, but it requires a URL.  Does that mean I need to post my photos online elsewhere first, then link from SJ?  

     Are direct uploads from my computer to my message on SJ possible? I haven't succeeded in the past but will try "Attach a File" now.

    Well, for some reason the attachments loaded!  I'd been told that I was attaching files that were too large (I think).

    Great.  Looks like I'm in business.

    Click on the 5th button from the right (just left of the add hyperlink button).

    Looks like you still need to hit the "insert image" link below the icon (after you upload the photo) in order to have a large image in the post

    OK, thanks.  I'll try again.  Uhhhh....

    OB, when I click the 5th button from the right (its icon looks like a picture), I get a drop-down box asking for a link that begins with http.  What if I just want to upload from my computer instead of from Flickr or other online website?

    Here goes, Rick.  

    I'll click "Attach a file".  I get "choose file," so I choose this photo of Donald Trump.  

    No "insert image" option appears, but I see the thumbnail in my post.  I can click it to make the image full-sized but still can't seem to embed the photo.  Not a problem unless SJ readers can't see the full image.  Can you?

    I try a second image, also a jpeg. I get a button scrolling "uploading".  I go outdoors, mow the lawn, cook supper and drive up to Burke and back from here in Virginia to see if any snow has fallen yet.  I get back and the "uploading" button is still scrolling.  (And there's no snow at Burke.)

    I try another jpeg image; it refers to one of your favorite entertainers. The image loads quickly (as a thumbnail).  

    Just sayin'.

    I suggest you click on the menu above where it says greetings, and read the how-to, third item, how to embed a photo....while I get a chicken salad sandwich

    Chicken sandwich?  No, I'll have a five-piece McNuggets.

    Sorry I didn't see this earlier as I may have had a solution. Glad to see you got it fixed.

    I had this same problem you describe with 2 files, with it just sitting there saying "Uploading". Stumped me for a bit. Then I saw in my case it was because there was an apostrophe in my file names. There are probably other characters it doesn't like.

    The other puzzling thing was when I posted a question here (below post linky) it did not show up under new discussions like your question did. So I was on my own....as usual.
