Day Prime

This is the thread for posting your 'thumbnails' for the challenge.
It will let you build up a mini gallery of your own shots for the 2016 Day Prime challenge.


- here's the link to the Day Prime Photo & Talk Thread
- and here you'll find the Day Prime Training aka Outtakes thread
- in the Thumbnails thread there should be exactly one post for each member participating in Day Prime
- in this post please place small versions of your shots linked to the post where the original is placed: see details below
- go back and 'edit' your single post when you have a thumbnail to add for a new day

How to post thumbnails

Basically you want a code with this structure:


What you have to do is fill in 'post' and 'thumbnail' correctly.

'post' is the address of the post that you created within the challenge photo thread. If you look at that post, find your user name on the left, then a little to the right you'll see either a little blue circle or a yellow star. Click on that and it will take your post to the top of the visible page, and then in the address bar at the top of your browser will be the exact address of your individual post. Copy and paste that in place of 'post'.

'thumbnail' is the address of your thumbnail.
Your image hosting service may provide a way to return a thumbnail sized version of your shot. For instance in Flickr you can select a thumbnail size of your photo. If your hosting service does not support this, create and upload a thumbnail yourself and then use that. Copy and paste the web address in 'thumbnail'.

For instance: your 'post' address is:
http://www.dyxum.com/dforum/day prime_topic83717_post978382.html#978382

and your 'thumbnail' address is:

Then the resulting code for your thumbnail will be:

[URL=http://www.dyxum.com/dforum/day prime_topic83717_post978382.html#978382][IMG]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7147/6722511297_011cc2407e_o.jpg[/IMG][/URL]

And your thumbnail photo will 'magically' appear; and when you click on the thumbnail you will be taken to the 'original' photo in the day thread.

When you add a new image, don't start a new thumbnail post, just edit your existing thumbnail post and add a similar entry for the next one, maybe with 2 or 3 spaces between the entries.

Note: When you do go back to edit, you may spot that post now includes some extra auto-generated stuff on the end with " rel="nofollow. Don't worry about this, and remove it if it confuses you - you're original code won't need any quotes.

Hope this helps - do ask if you need any help.
When you do it it for the first time, it's a bit of a ..., well, challenge. But then you'll get the hang of it and making thumbnails becomes a piece of cake.
