Hi Doug, Si and all
just went and had another look at page 11 of Updah thread and in post 107 (see http://freerails.com/view_post.php?post_id=89483} the first photo of the parade is wider than the rest of the photos on that page.
Now going to the direct Flikr link at [url=]https://www.flickr.com/photos/33431492@N04/22371498298/]]https://www.flickr.com/photos/33431492@N04/22371498298/[/url] I find under the photo at at left "e(6) modified by CombineZP" So lets see if this works- now copying the just original fat photo from the original thread and deleting surrounding text...e (6) by slateworks, on Flickr
Now going back to Flickr and selecting BBcode from under the Share Photo icon at bottom right and selecting size as "Medium 800 by 314 pixels (can use little down arrow at right of size field to select from a range of sizes for your photo) we then have Copy the BB code and paste directly here e (6) by slateworks, on Flickr
Checking back to see what size the original photo came in as: testing for 1024 x 402 pixelse (6) by slateworks, on Flickr BINGO!! - we have a winner!!!
Now if you weren't a wake up about the 800 preferred pixel size, then it is likely Flikr would bring in whatever size the photo ended up when it was uploaded to Flikr, This photo looks like a composite, so it would finish up greater than 800 wide after uploading to Flikr.
Clear as mud, Doug??

HI Doug, Si and all,
I'm sorry but I can't help with the fishy Chinaman. I have photo j0 in post 107 looking like this - (I have included text either side of the photo and am using a straight Copy/Paste)
luggage and freight (white metal castings) were added,
The parade photo was originally posted at a larger size in view of its width and I wanted to make the content as clear as possible so that one isn't a "fat photo".
The Chinese fisherman has been drowned and the correct photo put in the post by using a 640x480 size. If I use the 800x600 size he magically reappears! Weird or what!
Thanks for the input John but it's most likely a Flickr aberration as you say Si. I can get rid of any other fat photos (I think) by reposting them at 640x480 but that will involve a search and destroy exercise and I'm rapidly losing the will to live over it so will leave things as they are for now.
