I have always had trouble getting a photo to show up in a post, I've tried many different methods, paying close attention to size and still no luck. Ant helpful suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Hello Gene:

I have never had the actual image show up it usually says, click here to view attached image. No error message


I have been using JPEG, I have a Mac and use Firefox and Safari.

Thanks,

Yes, a new window opens up showing the photo. However, I have seen other posts where the photo appears visibly within the post. This is what I was hoping to accomplish.

Thanks again Gene!

I use ImageShack. It will provide you with a link for any pic you choose that is designed for forums. Just copy the link and paste it in a response on the Café and there it will be - simple!
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Thanks Chessmann, but I was hoping to have the photo appear with the post not just a link to click.

Steve,

There is a setting on your preferences page to either see the image in the post or just show a link. Go to your preferences and look under the Image Display Control Settings section. You'll see the option there.

I had the same problem for a while until I discovered the Café's FAQs.
The link for the photo has to be embedded.
I now put my photos into Photobucket and they embed the link for you.

Good luck

He's talking about a photo uploaded on the Café, not one hosted elsewhere.

Thanks a million Gene, I am sure that will work. It's the one thing I haven't tried :-(

Thanks also to everyone else for sharing their ideas.

All the best!
