Hmm...  Didn't quite turn out the way I wanted it to.  Should have been full size.

 

It will at all times appear as thumbnail when the image is uploaded to the forum from your computer. It may be viewed in full size by clicking on that thumbnail.

 

You must use a different image hosting site and post its url there for it to appear as full size in the forum. We mostly use imgur because it is free and easy to use.

I'm having a problem figuring out how to post a picture.  Sorry.

 

I made a post describing the process visually on November 12, 2014. You will have to go back a page in this thread to find it. This is to upload images from your computer to TCM forum directly. 

 

I will be happy to answer any questions which you may have concerning the method.

You can go to your name at the top of the page here, click it, select My Settings, select Manage Attachments in the left column. This will tell you how much you've used and how much you have left. Scroll down to see all of your posted attachments - you can delete them all from this page.

Fascinating! I had already deleted a lot, after your last post. Still a few more -- it's must easier to delete from the location that you pointed me to, rather than in each post. Thanks!

Ah, I  think I understand what you mean! So as individual posters, we have a maximum allotment. Since I started the "... Home Town Photos" thread, it makes sense that I may have used up my maximum allotment, since the point of that thread was to post our own photos, we which took.  I will start deleting former posts in that section, and see what happens. Thanks, Kid!

Just had a thought, Swithin. When you say "post from your computer", are you attempting to post them as full photos, or as attachments to your post - as you would an email?

 

I noticed in your "Hometown Photos" thread, your posting them as thumbnail attachments. There is a limit on these here. The limit is 3MB. You can post many small images, or a handful of large images, but the total bytes puts a cap on our posting. I started a thread on this many months ago (April 28, 2014 - nearly a full year ago) and it has never been addressed, so I just post web images, or my own which I have run through a web photo hosting site to obtain a postable URL.

 

One other work-around you may wish to use; it involves deleting previous thumbnails to free up space for posting new thumbnails. This pretty much renders your earlier posts useless - that's why I don't use this method.

I seem to have lost the ability to post photos from my computer -- not from the Internet, which I can do fine. I started the "TCM Board Members Home Town Photos" thread a while back. Every time I try to post, no matter how I resize the photo, I get the message that it's too large. I pm'd the moderator for advice, but got no response.

 

Any ideas?

I thought that is the nuclear facility we are selling the Iranians to keep them happy. It looks so realistic, lol.

hey, it's the irwin allen future where everything is simplified.

to tell you all true facts to replace the obligatory rubbish that is

having a pic option is TERRORIFIC!  A New Type of Thrill!

TCM with Facts!  Now that is something worth striving for.

Facts that put the immature jerks into a frenzy of immature jerkiness.

Locking a thread means the truth about my situation was too much.  If I could post pics why would I start a thread about not being able to?  & just by coincidence as soon as I tell everybody my pic option was blocked - it became unblocked!  I call that a billion to one possibility.

My take is My thread <<<Edgar G. Ulmer: Bluebeard >>> was not accepted well & as punishment my pic was blocked TO PREVENT me from posting another film history thread which was Lew Landers: Mask of Diijon.  when no pics were allowed on this thread it became quite obvious the Bluebeard history was tough to swallow.

Locking a thread is taking the low road which amounts to the same difference as blocking pics.  An attempt to control the truth from leaking onto the board.  Can't have people understanding facts.

So we're back to Too Much Rubbish on here (By Design).

Are you posting copywritten material?     One needs permission for that.    This is a nation founded on the concept of personal property rights.

 

Well, except when the issue of "eminent domain" is involved, James!

Big Bopper is not allowed to post a pic to illustrate points about movies.  Until yesterday (thur) Big Bopper was posting pics for

 

THE HIGH COMMAND 1938 film

 

FURCHT 1917 film

 

CHILD'S PLAY 1972 film

 

and in these instances, the photos help stimulate conversation.  none of the pics are objectionable or feature nudity etc. 

 

I am now being punished for doing nothing.  My CHILD'S PLAY post on the James Mason thread was removed entirely.  Again it had nothing but information ABOUT MOVIES!

 

So wutz duh beef?
