Silver in front yard getting ready for summer skiing.  Son being annoying: Dad, we going skiing Friday?  Dad being annoyed:  More likely with some help!  Neighbor being slightly passive aggressive: Nice boat sitting in your front yard there, Andrew.  Going skiing soon?

More good news.  Even tho there are a couple more steps than the original ccf upload (probably no more than  in the new ccf upload) You can upload multiple photos in one step, making, actually, easier than the old way.  so you guys doing projects that you've been dying to show us, can upload several at a time in one easy step to show us your progress.

Per Ken's request, I will post step by step in a new/separate thread.

Mine disappeared because I deleted them while playing around on IMGBB, yours should be OK. as long as you don't do anything to get rid of them.

I had to upload them again to put the deleted pictures back here on CCF

Good job Larry Wink

Since you're a lot more computer literate than me, it would probably be best for the rest of the CCF people if you could maybe explain the process in easily understandable terms.

No need at all for the "CCF picture process"

It really is pretty easy after you figure it out.

I have any pictures that are on IMGBB saved in my computer/phone just to be safe.

Pretty soon everybody will be posting pictures of everything Wink

Well shoot, that's relatively (relative to CCF procedures, not relative to other website procedures).  I had never drilled down to the upload options in imgbb to see the "full" option.  Didnt know if you were referring to a CCF option or an imgbb option.

Dont love the idea of having to store every photo we upload "permanently" on imgbb, but if its our only choice.....  Just save your photos at home too, in case they decide to take your photos hostage like photobucket did.

Still not quite sure what you mean by the "BB Full Code Option"  the [img} thing doesnt work and the [url] thing doesnt work.  Can you post what your entered url/bb code entry looks like?  Interesting that if the image is gone from imgbb it is gone from here, meaning it is not copying the photo to here, but rather posting a link.  Come to think if it, I guess thats the way photobucket worked to, just never occurred to me that was the case.

So that's what I get here with Google Photos using my convoluted method.  I tried the same operation on a different forum and the picture went up just fine so it's an issue here, not with the method.  

I was trying to dodge IMGBB because there are limits to the amount of data you can keep there without ponying up cash and some other minimum stuff but looks like that's the way to go.  Or one way that we know works anyway.

I registered for the Free account.so my photos are saved. Earlier in this thread when some of my pictures disappeared it was because I deleted them from IMGBB and had to upload them again to put them back on CCF. IMGBB didn't create the pronlem..........I did it all by myself Wink

Use the BBCode full  option

When you paste the BBCode full into the message box here on CCF, the code shows up when you kinda think there should be a picture showing up.

Next step, mutter a few things, scratch your head and then hit the  "preview" option and the picture is there.

Smile and then hit "post reply" and the picture is on CCF

You can probably skip the preview and just hit post reply and the picture gets posted, but I always hit preview before posting 

No guarantees but that's what works for me.

I just posted this image of Jethro from my phone. I'll try to explain how I did it soon.

I did notice that Rule 91 has a slight lean to the right.

The lean was cured a few seconds later though in the explosion Wink

Well, maybe I wasn't that far off.  I did manage to create a post but I also ended up with an image Icon but no actual image.  I was working from Google Pictures and a separate site that created a link to allow you to upload pictures from Google Pictures to a forum.  Slightly more cumbersome than IMGBB but no restrictions, which made it seem like a good idea, except it didn't work.

It takes an act of congress to post pictures for most people.  Others are much more savvy than I and can do it easily it seems.  I hope Keno is writing his thesis on this topic and will share it soon!Wink
