If my original flickr file is too large and the medium size is too small, how do I adjust the long side to 800 on either flickr or dyxum?

Once you've uploaded it to Flickr, you're stuck with the sizes Flickr presents. You need to resize the image to your target size before uploading to Flickr.

You can't do that on Dyxum either.

I don't use Flikr, but I get the impression that people just upload unresized images and rely on Flickr to do the resizing for them. As Wross days, to get an image 800 pixels wide, you really have to resize before uploading -- and that way you can sharpen and get more control over what your image looks like on the web.

I use Photobucket to host the images I post here. It's free (nominally up to 1GB) and easy to use.

Hi Aplha_in_exile,

Thanks for the scheme for Flickr - I have posted from this site already but the tip on the BB feed is a great one - yes, you do get fed up with the pop-up blocker running all the time!

Generally, I always re-size to 800 before uploading to Flickr and this then results in a full sized image that is just right for Dyxum.

By the way - thanks to everyone for all the processes, hints and tips - this is what makes this such a great site!

kind regards, neil.

Thanks, Howard

Thanks - I'll give that a whirl. I was trying % black and neither 80% nor 85% worked for me.

It's closer to 96% or 97% black , but neither of those quite work either.

@ bigoars: which part is giving you most trouble. Is it getting a hosting site and uploading your images there or is it getting them from the hosting site to show on Dyxum.

For hosting site advice you can look here.

For getting them from the hosting site to show on Dyxum there's a step-by-step instruction on page 1 of this thread.

Hi,

Embedding is just makiing sure a link is active or picture shows in your post.

For lifting from your photosite I suggest you check page 1 orf this thread for the "automated" process.

If you want to do it manual you need to look on your photosite what the http address/filename of the picture is. Do this by right clicking on the image and copy the filename/reference starting with http upto and including the .jpg at the end.

Then go to a post and type [img], then paste the http address/filename you just copied followed by [/img]. Make sure the box before "Enable BBcodes to format post" is checked. Type in any other text you want to add and then press "preview post" to see if it's all working as intended. If yes you can do "post reply" and the text and picture should be there for everyone to see.

Good luck
