Posting images from 500px site

It seems that posting images from the 500px site is perfectly possible although getting the link to the image seems a bit convoluted. Please note however that I'm writing from the "mere webber" perspective - not the owner of 500px account. I mean: maybe there is some better method if somebody is logged in to the site ...

Observation

It seems that 500px uses following scheme to construct URLs to photos:

http://pcdn.500px.net/23797687/6c3193d81ca226746e62a9ecb5d954ffc7f8799c/4.jpg

The green part is some numeric user id, the red part is some numeric photo id, while the yellow part denotes photo size/shape. The latter can be 1.jpg for small square crop of the image, 2.jpg for bigger square crop, 3.jpg for even bigger square crop, and finally 4.jpg for the original photo.

Getting the link

The above sounds complicated but hopefully it is relatively easy to get the URL of the photo: being on the page which shows the photo you should see the "Embed" button somewhere on the right side. Clicking this button will pop-up a box with a HTML code snippet. Do not get frightened with that - you do not need to know HTML to use it - just copy that snippet and paste it in a text editor (e.g. Windows Notepad, but if you like to use MS Word or whatever - it should work as well). The HTML code snippet will look like this:

<table cellpadding="2"><tr><td style="border-bottom: 0px solid #fff;"><a href="http://500px.com/photo/23797687"><img src="http://pcdn.500px.net/23797687/6c3193d81ca226746e62a9ecb5d954ffc7f8799c/3.jpg" width="280" height="280" alt="Untitled by Matt Boggs (MattBoggs)) on 500px.com" style="margin: 0 0 5px 0;">
</a><br/><font style="font-size: 120%;"><a href="http://500px.com/photo/23797687">Untitled</a> by <a href="http://500px.com/MattBoggs">Matt Boggs</a></font></td></tr></table>


Complicated? No worries - you are interested only in the fragment I marked in red - this is the link to the photo of your choice. Just select it, copy, and paste between [IMG][/IMG] tags in Dyxum text box. Well, you also need to put the right "size/shape" part, which means that you have to change "3.jpg" into "4.jpg" - otherwise you will get square crop instead of the original photo.

Results

Using the above code snippet, which I'm using in here with permission of Mattboggs10 (thanks!), who is the author of the photo below, we can see the results:

Original:

[IMG]http://pcdn.500px.net/23797687/6c3193d81ca226746e62a9ecb5d954ffc7f8799c/4.jpg[/IMG]




Big square crop:

[IMG]http://pcdn.500px.net/23797687/6c3193d81ca226746e62a9ecb5d954ffc7f8799c/3.jpg[/IMG]




Smaller square crop:

[IMG]http://pcdn.500px.net/23797687/6c3193d81ca226746e62a9ecb5d954ffc7f8799c/2.jpg[/IMG]




Small square crop:

[IMG]http://pcdn.500px.net/23797687/6c3193d81ca226746e62a9ecb5d954ffc7f8799c/1.jpg[/IMG]




That's all - hopefully this will help somebody to post photos from 50px.

Thanks again to Mattboggs10 for permission to use his photos in this short intro.

To post pics from Dropbox.com

But this one will link to the image directly: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/361shhk4nu0wng4/_DSC4121.jpg

If on your first try it does not work, try it again with the _ [underscore] before DSCXXXX removed.

Does anyone know which of these approaches retain the EXIF data?


Thanks

UPDATE FOR FLICKR USERS

Here's an example using one of my own shots...

First bring up the Dyxum posting box. Then in another tab....

1) Log into your Photostream.

2) Select the shot you want to post with a left click.

3) Click on this three-dot symbol to get the sizing your want.



4) Select the size of shot you want (1024 pixels or slightly bigger) with a left click and the following appears



Note that the correct size is in black.

5) Right click on the pic and this time a new dialog box appears which offers a number of options -- left click on Copy Image Location

6) Now go back to the tab with the Dyxum page and place the cursor on a blank line with no text below it.

7) Left click on the insert photo symbol labelled as "1"



And a dialog box drops down into which you paste the pic's URL (Cntrl+v) and press OK

The URL should look like

[IMG]http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8298/7929824182_cf88e552d2_o.jpg[/IMG]

and you will see the shot as



Hope this gets you under way.

hi Brettania
I was using this method up to last weekend but tried today & the right click on the photo doesn't bring up the "Copy image location" option.
I've e-mailed Flickr but not heard anything yet.
Any thoughts ??
Many thanks

Doesn't for me, because I can't see any share links.

What works for me in Flickr is to select the right size picture as explained, then right click on it and get properties. Copy the link, eg,

https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7442/12475855544_ec0c7dc3c5_c.jpg

then paste it into the 'insert image' box with the tree on it in Dyxum. Close that and inspect the link in text. Check the '.jpg' is there, delete the 's' from 'https', and if necessary change the picture size by changing the last letter before the .jpeg.

'_s' gives 75 x 75 (small square)
'_t' gives 100 x 64 (thumbnail)
'_q' gives 150 x 150 (square)
'_m' gives 240 x 154
'_n' gives 320 x 206
'' (nothing) gives 500 x 322
'_z' gives 640 x 412
'_c' gives 800 x 515 (medium)
'_b' gives 1024 x 659 (large)
'_h' gives 1600 x 1030 (I assume this is too big to use here)

So you can change the size displayed easily after previewing your post. I won't even try to list all the things that can go wrong with linking - I think I've tried most of them! (Doh!)

But taking the text link above and doing what I said (and altering the '_c' to '_n') should give:



At least this *seems* to work for me, today. I won't guarantee it works for anyone else today, or next week
Miranda F & Sensorex, Sony A7Rii, A58, Nex-6, Dynax 4, 5, 60, 500si/600si/700si/800si, various Sony & Minolta lenses, several Tamrons, lots of MF primes and *far* too many old film cameras ...

I've been doing the same as darosa, seems like it's the easiest and fastest way to post your own images. And that's a main point, this only works for your images and you have to be logged on to Flickr or else it considers you a guest. Also you have to have the images designated as Public that anyone can see.

The link is to the same thread darosa posted but a little farther down the page.
http://www.dyxum.com/dforum/the-2014-day-prime-training-aka-outtakes-thread_topic103969_post1253993.html#1253993

One thing I do different is after pasting the BB code is delete the second img string and that gets rid of the title but the image is clickable and will take you to it's Flickr page.

If you want to upload your photo to your post - you cannot. You have to have hosting site that hosts your photos.
However, if you have a direct link to the JPEG (ends with .jpg) you have the picture shown in your post (and not only link). You can follow the instructions on this thread to learn how to get such link from your hosting service.
