    I just created a free flickr account and uploaded an image with the resolution of 5472x3648.

    Here are the image sizes available from the free flickr account:

    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.

    Not sure, I don't have a PC here to test.

    However, just open a new window...and copy the URL...

    Here's another youtube for you.

    I know. from my free Flickr acc't I can click on one of my images (exactly as you instructed) and I can come up with all those options too and have one of those sizes come up on my screen. The issue is when I go to "right click", I have absolutely no option or choice to "Copy Image Address". It's simply not there (not even as a grayed out option). Only "copy" is there and thats of course not it. This is where I am "stuck" so to speak. How to figure out why "Copy Image Address" is not an option when I right click on any size image of mine. OK, just saw you posted another video, let me have a look and see if there is a workaround...be right back!

    What browser are you using? When I use Chrome on my Mac, the options are different (it says Copy Image URL instead of Copy Image Address.)

    Perhaps Chrome works similarly on a PC.

    In any event, try the youtube video in the previous post. That method works in any browser.

    You wanted shinny!

    btw - this was captured using a dual 12 core PC with a mere 96 GB RAM processed using C1 Pro 7.2 then over to CS6 before heading your way.

    Re: Testing...Please Ignor this Post

    OK, had a look at your second video. If I bring up any sized image as shown and right click, the option to open in a new window is "grayed out". At least the words are there...not like the previous option your described of "copy Image Address", which is not seen in any form (grayed out or not). Since the option to open in a new window isn't available, I simply copied and pasted the web address on the top of the page of the larger image and then tried posting on Getdpi. It doesn't work!

    Even if I could open in a new page and copied the link on the top of the page (which should have been the same as my coping the large image's link at the top of its original page, I woudl assume I'd get the same results.

    Yes, you have to copy the URL that has the .jpg extension at the end.

    Hold on, another vid coming up

    Also, what browser are you using?

    Then I eat my words (and the apple). I'm honored that you used all that "firepower" to bestow such a lovely apple in honor of my acheivement....which probably any 3 year old today could easily do (host an image from Flickr on Getdpi). The next generation of kids will probably laugh at the equipment we all currently use.

    Here you go.

    bbcode - YouTube

    Select the desired size, and copy the code.

    Then paste into your post on the forum.

    This will give you a clickable image, of course.

    You'll need to parse out the actual URL with the .jpg file extension, and put that between the img and /img markers, as outlined earlier.

    Easier: Copy said URL, and use the Image Insert icon.

    Without my having the option to "Copy Image Address", I cannot copy a URL that has the .jpg extension in it. Just opening one of my images large in Flickr and looking at (or coping) that pages web address isn't suffcient. It doesn't have the URL with the .jpg extention.

    I am using IE as my browser. You know something? I have Safari on my PC. I wonder if I open my Flickr image in Safari, whether the option to "Copy Image Address" will show up. Let me go and try now...then I'll look at your 3rd video.

    If you are on a PC, try the Chrome browser and see if it has the Copy Image URL popup menu. That's far quicker.

    Or yes, try Safari for Windows.

    Thats exactly what I've been doing (based on many of your original suggestions). I go to one of my flickr images (in Photostream) and click on "Share" option. From there there is the option to copy either the HTTP code or BB code. Only the BB code works here in GEtdpi. Once I copy the BB code I paste it with the yellow "insert image" here on Getdpi (remebering to 1st get rid of the "http://" that 1st shows up when you click on the little yellow insert option.

    Then after pasting the Flickr "BB" code I can either do one of two things:

    1. Post the BB code exactly as pasted and the image will come up but will be clickable back to Flickr OR

    2. Before posting the BB code, I parse exactly as your described. This will allow the image to come up on Getdpi, but it won't be clickable!

    With #2 option, I have to be very precise what I cut out (remove)..or no image will post.

    Thats why I would like to find a way to be able to use the "Save Image Address" option which doesn't come up when I right click.

    As a side note, when one copies the BB code in the "Share" option on Flickr, the largest sized image offered is 1024!

    Yes, the max is 1024 with that method, and it's messy since one has to parse the URL.

    Try another browser.

    This is the result when I use Safari with the Option "Save Image Address", which "IS" available now! Obviously the issue was using IE. The 1st image posted below was the 1600 pixel (on longest side) option. The second image was with the 1024 pixel (on longest side) Maybe the larger one is too big for posting on Getdpi...but its certainly larger than my previously posted image. Maybe I can find a way for one of my images to cover all the postings in an entire thread...LOL (just kidding).

    Monza, your ideas worked! I assume the Pro level option in Flickr allows access to even larger sizes, but thats a secondary issue. All my questions have been helped! Can't thank you and everyone else enough for staying with this thread while I worked things out. Very much appreciated!

    Monza, I may have to recind my Academy Award to you for your fine video's unless you start dubbing in voice and additionally add romantic soundtrack...LOL!!!

When the images (especially the larger 1600 pixel one) came up on my monitor, the width filled the entire Getdpi webpage. When I reloaded the page, everything shrunk in size. Does that mean to show an image larger than the one you see now (after refreshing the page) I would have to pull up an even larger image in Flickr (like 2200-2600 pixels approx. on the long side) in order for it to post larger than the my largest one seen in my last post? If so, I would probably have to go to a Pro acc't I guess?

    Oops, I just re-read a previous post of yours. I'd have to get a Pro acc't so I can link to the original image URL. Makes sense and also will allow unlimited hosting of images. Thanks again!

    Yes, I have seen the same effect. Apparently the forum is capable of displaying images at full resolution, but some code resizes them. Editing a post does not refresh the entire page and doesn't call that code.

    I am using an Asus display, 1920x1080.

    Interesting...that probably explains it. The monior I was using at the time was a NEC 26" Multisync. I don't think the effect or shrinking when the page was reloaded had anything to do with the size or resolution of the monitor.

    LOL Steen! As I said you guys are too much! Once I had a post with the subject heading that include "help"...received no replies. This one said "Please Ignore" and I had a avalanche of replies. Guess its human nature to go where you're not supposed to go

    Oh by the way does anyone know how much Vivek wants for his Leica M240 + Apo-Summicron-M 2/50 Asph? I'm ready to purchase today since I desperately need one to capture the all the detail in snowflakes starting to fall at the moment. They won't last long and don't want to miss this golden opportuity.

    Its bokeh is fine with me though I do admit it can sometimes be a bit nervous.
    But in my opinion even imperfections like that can often be fascinating.

    Wow Bob, those mirror-like reflections are just like those seen at Mirror Lake (in Yosemite)! Nicely done!

    ...except what's with those pentagon shaped specular highlights above and to the right of the orange-red cup? LOL!

    Hi Bob,

    Was that supposed to be "never take reflections for granite" or "never take relections for granted".....a play on words? LOL!

    I hope you know I was just kidding when I asked what those pentagon specular highlights were. I certainly wasn't serious!

    I found proof a while ago that Bokeh is very subjective. I had my monster Canon 50/0.95 on the Epson RD-1s and approached this pigeon very carefully to capture all the buttery smooth bokeh.

    Here is the final reaction from the pigeon:

    As you can see our forum will resize a big image to 1200 Mpx wide. Jack knows far more about the settings than me on what we have installed. As far as Flicker i have no idea and would NEVER EVER use a Flicker account.

    I know this question gets asked a lot but we do have it posted on how to use our forum gallery. Thanks Bob for posting this earlier

    Perhaps:

    i personally make full use of the gallery, using it's categories as well, as my image host. Both for posting images here and elsewhere.
    I also use one of Jack;s image re-sizing PS actions to set my final web size, to 1200 or 900 wide

    it is a quite useful service, thanks to the Forum!

    Totally agree , we really are the best place to post and you can post the BBC code on other forums as well.

    Guy, I noticed the quality of the file from the 1st of the two shots of that you posted (above) is far superior to the 2nd...

    Seriously, as I briefly explained earlier in this thread, I was most focused on attempting to post images from a couple of hosting sites that I use where privacy/security concerns for images are addressed for my needs. Unfortunately after working for the longest time in trying to find ways to capture the neessary "BB" or whateever else I might need, in order be able to then post an image (from them) onto here in Getdpi, was becomeing an exercies in fustration.

    After attempting to do this from those sites on and off for maybe close to a year and coming to the conclusion it wasn't possible (guess that's where their security part comes in), I finally decided to simply and quickly set up a Flickr acc't for only getdpi posted images. I figured once I worked that out by getting through some glitches (using IE browser was one of them), with the wonderful assistance provided by many others here, I would eventually go back when time permitted and re-read those links you provided. This would eventually provide a better route for posting and at the same time establish a gallery. All in due time, as they say but look forward to it.

    You didn't spell it out but I guess I have some idea why you mentioned you would't set up a Flickr acc't. If it's the same reasons why I hesitated, I can then understand.

    Oh one question: You posted two images above, one approx 3000 pixel's wide and one 1200 pixels wide, which obviously got posted with the same dimensions for the reasons you outlined. When I attemted as a similar test, a Flickr posted image (refer to post #66 in this thread), my two test images got posted in somewhat different widths. It appeared my 1200 pixel wide image was smaller than the width of the Getdpi webpage, whereas my approx 2400 pixel wide image, posted much like yours (full width). One of the many little mysteries I still can't quite figure out and maybe has something to do with flickr itself and how it handles files.

    Another possible solution to all this is for me to upload full rez images to your laptop 24 hr/day 365 days, and have you adjust, crop and resize as per my personal phone conversations/instructions to you, at all hrs of the day and night. Isn't that one of the perks of being a Getdpi member? OK, Ok, nuff said

    Thanks for your suggestions and input!

    Re: Testing...Please Ignor this Post

    Over-sized images are actually transferred from the server to your browser where they are re-sized locally with the script below.
    The quality of the re-sizing is dependent on the browser implementation.
    Just a bit of warning is that large files that are re-sized by your browser are still downloaded at full size, so they take up bandwidth and are not ideal for slower connections. So, I recommend that you use 1200 max dimension images for use in the forums.
    -bob

    <script type="text/javascript">
    function resizeImages() {
    if (document.images) {
    var mw = 1200;
    var mh = 1200;
    for (var ii = 0; ii < document.images.length; ii++) {
    var i = document.images[ii];
    var iw = i.width;
    var ih = i.height;
    if (ih > iw && ih > mh) {
    i.style.height = mh + 'px';
    } else if (iw > mw) {
    i.style.width = mw + 'px';
    }
    }
    }
    }
    if (window.addEventListener) {
    window.addEventListener('load', resizeImages, false);
    } else if (window.attachEvent) {
    window.attachEvent('onload', resizeImages);
    } else {
    window.onload = resizeImages;
    }

    </script>

    Bob, based on what you posted (above), then out of curioisty, why (referring to post #66 in this thread), does my 2400 pixel wide image posted wider while my 1200 pixel wide image of the same file post less so, no matter which browser I initially secured the image from or subsequently viewing the posted images. Maybe it's simply that the 1200 pixel wide Flickr image really was somemething less than 1200 pxiels?

    The larger of the two images is displayed (in Safari) as 1200 pixels wide, however when that image is downloaded it is 1600 pixels wide.
    The smaller image is 1024 pixels wide so it is not re-sized.
    Perhaps flickr is not advertising the actual sizes?

    What do you mean "no matter which browser I initially secured the image from"?

    Dave that may very well be the case on Flicker is they are downsizing to fit there preferred dimensions. I agree a lot of this is very confusing and frustrating. Totally understand security stuff and Flicker has been known as a major copyright infringement site, why I don't have a account there. I rather put my stuff on here as it is not so popular in numbers like Flicker.
