Hi Dodge,

That message means the system was unable to identify your image as being in GIF, PNG, or JPG format. Other formats such as BMP and TIFF and the native formats of Photoshop and other graphics programs are not supported. Make sure that you are saving the image in JPG format.

Another possible reason is that your image file name ends in .jpeg instead of .jpg

regards,

Martin.

So...... I succeeded in uploading some photos, the very first time I may add! Slick and easy. The question I have now is how do I get out of the "default" album? BTW, the photos are in my *usavet48* album. Check it out and let me know if I did good.

Dan

Sent this time from my laptop!

Dan, to post the photos, go to the forum you want and click on POST NEW TOPIC. Write any copy you want, hit ENTER to move the tab down, then click on the big G on the bottom right of the 2 icon lines at the top of the message field. You will go to your gallery, put the pointer on the photo you want and hit ENTER...it will appear in the post. You can add photos to any thread already in progress, just use the REPLY button, not QUICK REPLY and it will work the same. Once you have done, you can PREVIEW the post before posting it. There are prompts that help you with this. Give it a try.
Woodie-a computer doofus who knows how it works

Not only have you slain the upload dragon, but that car to barge facility is a super model!!

Ok--to create an album, in the bar at the top of the page, click Menu. This opens a small window. at the bottom, click on Gallery. This opens a page in the gallery with your photos on it. Find, and click on Folder management. This opens a page with your folder names, and the number of photos in each folder. Down at the bottom you will find "create new file folder". Fill in name of folder, and hit "create"

Be careful when uploading new pix to select the folder that you want them in. It's a lot easier to put them where you want them then, than to move them afterwards. If you do not select a folder, they will go into the default folder--by default (clever, wot?)

Now that you know the ins and outs, get that camera busy and lets see more of your work--I like what I see so far. 

PS--better get some support under the end of that deck girder bridge---sooner or later a train is going to come along and---------

No problem Dan, Woodie and I "speak as one"

So!  Ow60! A very apt description, but believe it or not, a new one on me. I have been modeling in 1/48 since the late '50's (1950's not, as some will try to tell you 1850's) and since we "wide gauge" souls are pretty much of a minority, I have used the Large Scale forum for (very) occasional stuff about the "Octoraro & Eastern" which uses radio control for the diesel and steam switching, and pantographs and overhead wire for through freight and passenger service.

We have a number of different forums for the various scales, but if we get enough 1/48 std gauge threads, I can create yet another and make that a separate entity.

So---post away!!

Herb

I don't know if, for me at least, this topic should rather be called "Moron posting photos". I have a problem sometimes when after laboriously typing up a reply to a topic, I decide that a photo would be just the ticket. So I load up a photo into the gallery, go back to my message, navigate to the gallery, find my photo, double-click on it, and... you guessed it. I'm back into forum topics, and my comments have dissolved into the ether without first being posted. I can't see where this forum saves any draft versions of postings. If it had only happened once, I'd chalk it up to experience; lesson learned, etc. Most discouraging...

Moron posting,
Dennnis aka JawboneFlats

And the same dang thing used to happen to me all the time, till I complained to the server.

They didn't fix anything, but told me that if you hit "preview" before exiting the screen that you are writing on, what's there will be saved. Same thing for writing a PM.

This worked for me, then I forgot about it once and--bingo--I didn't lose anything (except a large portion of my diminishing sanity). System worked.

Has to do with the law of perversity of inanimate objects, in conjunction with planetary positioning. Nothing complicated.

As always, your mileage may vary.

Herb

Frequently PhotoBucket decides to fix something that isn't broke, and makes doing a thing that was simple and easy into something obtuse and darn near impossible.

That happened recently. Time was when you clicked on the "img" option, you could paste it into the post, and the pix would appear in "preview", or when the message was posted.----EASY

Now the "improved" way---

You click on the "img" option and paste it. This is address of one of your pix, pasted.(note that I added some X's  to keep the system from thinking that that in itself is an address.)


[URLXX=http://s57.photobucket.com/user/XXmightyant2/media/003_zps12e503dd.jpg.html][IMG]httpXX://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g212/XXmightyant2/003_zps12e503dd.jpg[/IMG][/URL]


Now to get the photo to appear instead of all the above garbage, you have to paste the above and trim it--delete everything up to, but not including the first [IMG]  In the above, that would mean deleting-


[urlXX=http://s57.photobucket.com/user/XXmightyant2/media/003_zps12e503dd.jpg.XXhtml]

and delete everything after the last [IMG]



It has to start, and end with  [IMG]

I'm going to paste the modified address here, but of course, you will see the pix instead of the address



Tony moved or deleted the example from his PB account!

Now isn't that a lot easier than the old way?

Damn PhotoBucket--if it weren't for all the photos I have posted through their site disappearing from various sites, I would kiss them goodbye.

Herb--a thoroughly disgusted PhotoBucket user, eagerly awaiting their next "improvement"

I learned too about "improvements". The way I deal with them is leaving the offending account idle with the minimum movement needed to keep it afloat so as not to lose anything that I may want to keep. and then opening a new one at another site that still values common sense. Jose.

Hi Tony.

Yes, we try to respect copyrights--although some times it is impossible to do so. My personal feelings are that IF the material does not have copyright information as part of it, AND you got it from some place on the net that did not have a copyright posted, then it is fair game. With the proliferation of material on the net, it is flat out impossible to be sure. Common courtesy is to give the site that you grabbed it from credit--IE -- "from fizzwidgit photos".

The thing that I totally ignore is when  some sod takes a photo that has been taken in 1903 and has been floating around the net for a while, and tries to put their copyright down the bottom.

Appreciate your concern about keeping us Administrators out of jail-- or down under gaul.


Difficult to set hard and fast rules for such a gray area subject. Use common sense, and, err on the side of of caution.

Herb
