A Bit More Advanced

There are a couple of reasons that we prefer that our members use the thumbnail feature available here in the community.
  • Hotlinking (displaying pics that load on another server) can be illegal. Additionally it means the images can at some point be moved which leaves missing photos in a thread later on.
  • If the size of the original image is too large, it can break the design of the thread, creating a large horizontal scroll.
In the digital photography forum though, there are times that we prefer to display the actual image rather than just a thumbnail. Provided you are certain that the full size photograph is not too wide (about 600 wide or so) the best way to accomplish this is to go ahead and upload your photos using the thumbnail option, click on the thumbnail to get the URL on the V7N server, then add the image to display from that locations.
(1) Upload your images using the thumbnail option. (Once you have completed the post, you will have a few minutes that you can make edits.)

(2) From the completed post, click on the thumbnail that you want to display. The thumbnail will open the full image in your browser, giving you the full URL of the image in the address bar. Copy the URL of the exact location of the image.

(3) Click to edit your post.

(4) Click on the image icon. A small box will pop up asking for the URL of your image. Paste in the URL that you copied earlier and click OK.

(5) The code to display the image will be added to the body of your post, simply click save.

To see an example of the end result go here. As you can see, I chose to display one of my photos and left the rest as thumbnails.
