I won't pay any attention to this.
where is the image ?
I love a scheme...
When a man was walking around the deck of a ship, he saw another man looking into a bucket and repeating, "eight, eight, eight..." He approach the man and peered in to the bucket. The man then said, "nine, nine, nine..."
You guys are too much! Where are all of you when I put something up in the FS forum...LOL!
I'm trying to post images to dpi (full size without the need to click on them) by retriving them from a different on-line source I use, but so far only the web address of the image folder shows up. Tomorrow I'm going to tackle this a different way and hopefully you all get to see this wonderful test image of blured cookies jars under yellow tungstun lighting without white balancing. Now isn't that worth staying up half the night for? Just maybe this almost illiterate guy when it comes to computers, will have one of his rare successes. Stay tuned!

Thanks Bob..truly appreciated! In my particular situation, the issue is the hosting website of my images and how it's folders and images contained within are accessed. A bit hard to explain but I'll first try a few things in the next few days and if not successful, will come begging and pleading for help! Till then....

There's a message hidden somewhere here, and I think I've found it. It was brought to me by a bus driver on a not-so-hidden path between Nong Khai and Vientiane:
GH2 with Zuiko 75mm f/1.8 @ f/2.8
I don't care what gear I have.

Wonderful images, all. I particularly like the ones from the Leica M and the APO Aspheric 50/2.
Steen, you also have some vertical banding in your shot too! Looks like I have to wait one more day to see if I can post properly...all a bit fustrating!
>probably just some camera shake,
You can apply for a patent: Selective camera shake :-)
Thread of the year. OK, it _is_ early!
One can always place a bet on a long shot that I succeed...although if it was me I wouldn't bet on it...LOL! Have a lot of "real" work today so not sure exactly when this will get done, but it will, one way or another in the next few days. Meanwhile, I'm enjoying seeing all these test shots from you've all kindly posted from the new Leica M240 ("M") camera...LOL...and thanks for letting me waste all this bandwith by starting this thread
Well...drum roll please...(don't you just love how I'm making such a big production out of something that child's play for most here?)..the image you've all been waiting for...out of focus, horrible white balance and a subject that people long to look at! Actually a test shot taken years ago with a Epson RD-1 rangefinder testing to see if an aftermarket battery would fire the shutter.
Actually my two original hosting sites don't seem to allow capturing the URL (coping and saving the image's HTTP) of a single image for hosting to another website, just the folder's address....and copy and pasting the web address of the image doesn't work. I need their sites for the privacy concerns of some of the well recognized individuals/groups I often photograph. I'll keep working on it though. In the meantime I took the easy way out (cause it's the only thing I'm capable of figuring out at the moment) and linked the image to GEtdpi through Flickr.
I had a few questions for those that use Flickr as a hosting site:
1. It seems the largest sized image I can display on Getdpi thru Flickr is the one shown here? I often see even larger images than the one I posted, in some of the Getdpi forums, but I asssume this can only be accomplished if the image hosting site is GEtdpi itself? Is this correct?
2. I've also noticed with Flickr, that the max sized image one can capture (save) the HTTP in order to upload to GETdpi is approx. a little more than a 1000 pixels on the long side (with their free account). Does anyone know if I signed up for Flickr's Pro acc't, will it allow a larger sized image to be uploaded (coping and saving the image http) in order to post a little bit larger image Getdpi? I'm not refering to the size image that can be clicked when viewing images on Flickr itself. Any suggestions in this regard would be appreciated.
3. With Flickr's free acc't, they don't allow uploading of Raw files...just Jpegs and Tiffs. Does anyone know if with their Pro acc't, can Raw files can be uploaded?
Thanks for any assistance to these questions.

That's weird, when I edit the previous post, it expands to full width on my monitor.
How wide is it on everyone's monitor?
Uploaded using the Mac Mountain Lion direct method, it uploaded data but the image never appeared on my photostream.
Your post has an [img] link enclosed by a [url] link (I've added a space in 'url' and 'img' so the image isn't displayed so the code is visible.)
[ur l=http:[email protected]/8387520034/][im g]htp://farm9.staticflickr.com/8468/8387520034_6a1fe0d2b3_b.jpg[/i mg][/u rl]
If you don't want a click to open a new window to the image on Flickr, just use the [img] alone, don't enclose it with the [url]
Thanks for all your responses, truly appreciated! I'll have to determine if its worth going to a Pro acc't simply to post slightly larger images here on Getdpi. Your final response regarding how to make my posted image "not clickable" back to the Flickr website and/or where the entire url for my image is shown, I didn't follow. Not because of your explanation but my limited knowlege in this area. Tomorrow morning when I have more time, I'll re-read your explanation and try and figure it out and try what you suggested. Thanks again!
I thought originally I got the joke, but now I'm not 100% certain...LOL!
Just one question, are you saying "I am the man" (related to the story you told)...or are you saying "I the man!" (cause I finially figured how to post a full size image...LOL! This is all too much!
On my monitor your picture is 1200 pixels wide.
The reason is this: if your picture is longer than 1200 pixels at the long edge it will on GetDPI automatically be shown as downsized to 1200 pixels probably in order not to slow down the access to pages containing many pictures.
(For the same reason I believe we were once asked to avoid posting pictures larger than 300 Kb but I don't seem to be able to find that rule anymore. Am I simply wrong about this ?)
Described here, especially see post # 4 http://www.getdpi.com/forum/1081-post4.html
There is one single exception from the above rules: http://www.getdpi.com/forum/artful-i...sted-here.html
What's bizarre is when I edit the post with the 2926 pixel image, and then save the edit, the window expands to fill the entire width of the image.
I guess there is some forum image resize code that is not being called after such an edit, but it is called when the page is refreshed.
I can't easily demonstrate this, as the photo becomes too large.
I've recorded a quick movie to demo this...
I tried your suggestion regarding putting my URL for my image between [img] and [/img] (which flickr actually does when I click on the "Share" function and then copy the HTTP/BB in order to post an image here on Getdpi). I tried some of the other options under the Flickr's "SHare" function (other than coping using the HTTP/BB option under "Share"), none of them is successful in posting an image. If I do as you suggested and leave the [img] and [/img] on either side of the url, then an image shows up on GEtdpi with [img] on both sides of the image. If I eliminate the [img]'s, then the image still shows up but without the [img]'s on either side of the image....yet in both cases, one can still click on the image to take them back to my Flickr acc't. That's what I'm trying to avoid.
I clicked on your link for the instructional video, but only a page full of unrecognizable charaters shows on on my monitor.
Lastly, The largest option on Flickr to capture the HTTP/BB is approx 1024 pixel on the longest side...so I would assume the images larger than this, that get posted on GETdpi, aren't coming from Flickr acc't but some other hosting site?
I certainly don't want to take up everyone's time with this and again thanks for all the suggestions.
Here is a movie showing how I do it.
Monza, got it! Based on your suggestion I clicked on "insert an image" here on Getdpi and pasted the HTTP/BB link captured from Flickr. After doing this, I removed the entire 1st half of the HTTP/BB link captured in the "Share" function on Flickr, before posting here. The first half of the link captured from Flickr appears to simply be there so one can click on the image to take them to the Flickr website. By using on the second part that has the extension .jpg (jpeg) surrounded by [img] and [/img] does the trick. It leaves a non-clickable image! That seemed to work and my image shows up without being clickable. Now I don't know if its possible to post an image larger than 1024 pixels when captured from Flickr this way since a larger option isn't avaialble when clicking on the "Share" function and capturing the HTTP/BB...only up to 1024 shows up (or smaller).
Again I just tried clicking on your link yet of the instructional video you posted again but the vidoe doesn't show up. I assume it shows exactly what you described and I apprently did just now? Thanks!!!!!

Here is the same video posted to youtube instead.
Will take a few minutes for it to be available for viewing.
Thanks for your help too Viviek! everyone has been extremely supportive. My better half is Dutch, but after all these years, beats me how to say thank you (in Dutch). As you can see..with both languages and computers, it takes me a long time to "get it"!
Look forward to seeing more of your pics!
Monza, That's an academy award winning video!!! and explains things perfectly and is another way to post a non clickable image. One issue though! When I follow the instructions to the letter and right click....I absolutely do not come up with the option to "Copy Image Address"....not even as a "grayed out" choice is evident.
Either this is becuase I am on a PC, not MAC (but that shouldn't make a difference) or its becuase I have only a free Flickr acc't, not a Pro Flicr acc't...but not sure if thats the reason why. This has me stumped.
