Tonight I did discover Internet Explorer 11 will let you grab the URL from nearly any image you can find on the web. Just right-click the image then left-click properties. Highlight the full URL displayed then right-click it and Copy. This can be pasted into the "Import a photo from a URL" box for avatar additions/changes - - or into the URL box in the post/reply edit window when you post a regular image.
The old fashioned Copy/Paste method is also working again for those with Google Chrome or IE11 (dunno about earlier versions). Find a photo on the web, right-click it, left-click Copy image (Chrome) or Copy (IE11), paste that into a reply window as you would text - the image pops right in, just like the good ol' days.
Now, the only thing that's not working is the Choose File so we can pick an avatar photo from our own files. Those still need to be uploaded to a photo hosting site to obtain URLs which can then be inserted as above.
To KidNab, first I must comment on your "image" of *Thomas Mitchell-(l892-l962)-(easily 1 of "The Studio-System's" finest character actors. In the great 1939 Adventure classic: "0nly Angels Have Wings" (Columbia Pictures) it must rank up there w/Hollywoods all-time great (Adventure) pix! Along w/"C. Courageous" "Gunga Din" "Treasure Sierra Madre" "The Man Who Would Be King" "A. Queen" & others.
However, I'm still suffering difficulties in find a photo, pasting it,etc ?
Where exactly do you find image(s) that you want on your "profile?"
It all seems so darn "tedious" but I really want to do it! & when I read just how to do it, it seems to get even worse for some reason?
If you could, also drop me a line at (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Paul1992, has written & that's exactly how I located many fellow cinefans over the years. Plus, we can also correspond about cinema,etc
Do you also collect dvd's, books, memorabelia & such? & do you also see new movies?
& hope to hear from ya' like the others. Even the likes of: Leonard Maltin, Tom 0'Neil-(of goldderby.com), local Tampa Bay critics & even Roger Ebert, almost though. I did write him & Siskel back in the 1980's via reg. mail though. The Tracy Family-(& towards his end, Cyndi Tracy, even hooked up w/Borgnine, & others. (P.S. As you know, you get instant notifications in inbox-(personal e-mail) I also used to write "analysis" of each star, for a guy that owned a "Celebrity Death Mask" website. However, never got a red cent & he at 1st promised that if I wrote these little bio's, I'd also get $paid$ something. Erick Erickson was his name & he did do excellent work on these "Masks'" *Cagney, *Gable, MM, *Bogart, Edward G., Karloff, & many more, including historical figures. I love writing! So, PLEASE contact me. I'm also an *Oscar pundit 7 buff. "THE MORE THE MERRIER" & I sure wish this was an easier task.
