Posting a picture / image; how to add or embed an image or video in a post

HOW TO EMBED IMAGES: See tutorial information in posts 1 - 4.


Not every Forum accepts the embedding of images; for those that do, please follow the FlyerTalk Rules. From the FlyerTalk Rules:

8. Posting of Images link to this rule.
You may embed non-animated images in your posts. Your images must conform to all FlyerTalk content rules, must convey relevant, on-topic information and are not allowed in signature lines or user profiles other than in the space designated in your profile for your picture. (See also, Rule 2 — User Profiles.) Please size your images large enough to get your point across but not so that they distort FlyerTalk standard column widths.
To attach of a doc, docx, gif, jpe, jpeg, jpg, pdf, png, xls or xlsx file from your device, or to add a thumbnail (or up to six thumbnail photos to your post, see the first and second posts in this thread.

If your image fails to load, the first thing to try is clearing your browser’s cache.

NOTE: At this time, embedding animated images is not allowed (see this link to the FlyerTalk rule).

(Posts with embedded or attached videos, files or images made here as tests of how this works will routinely be deleted for systems efficiency.

Well, no, the Fireshot seems to produce an image that's far too large for use on FlyerTalk.

I've redacted the IMG tags and URL (doesn't work without the IMG) it won't distort our page rendering that way, unlike the way the embedded image.

Thank you for sharing; jackal has provided the solution.

So what site do people recommend for me to upload my pictures/host so I can then use the address for my trip reports on FT? Preferably something idiot-proof

No, if you're trying to post it in a PM.

Problem embedding an image in a post

I'm having a problem embedding an image in a post in this thread:

http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/briti...ment-plan.html

I've done this a thousand times before but this time the embedded image isn't appearing although a link to the same URL works fine.

Does anyone know what might be causing this?

The data is stored on Dropbox but it's not a firewall issue.

Thanks

As long as you are hosting the actual image on your FT album or photobucket or other sharing service, a link should work fine.

Yes, I'm using Dropbox. It seems that changing the format from PDF to PNG resolved the problem but I've been using PDF for embedded images for some time on FT. I just wondered whether something has changed recently?

PDF is a document format normally... Strange.
