Hm... seems like you're using IE. Can I suggest a better browser, such as Firefox, Chrome or Opera? There are other choices too.

If you wanna stick with IE, or can't switch, I'll warn you right now, while most of this site should work with IE, stuff might come up buggy, so you might not enjoy it as much...

Requirements For Posting Images

Nov 30, 2020 12:08 am
The New GP Member Guide does not provide any specific guidance on image technical requirements and I tried to find another thread on the topic before posting, but didn't see anything.

Are there technical requirements for images, i.e size limits, file type or size, etc.?

Not really. JPGs, GIFs and PNGs seem to work. You can only link to images, the site does not host them.

The tag is a follows (take out the leading space):
[ img]url to image[/img]

Tried posting the following using the code as shown above and both failed on me. (This is pulled from an edit of the post.)

Dimensions: 800 × 1040

Dimensions: 1000 × 563

Those two images are failing because the site is redirecting to HTTPS but has an invalid certificate. So for security reasons, it doesn't display.

So does anyone have any tips for using Google Drive or Google Photos for their images? I can create the Link, share it with 'Everyone', and it opens if you copy/paste the link, but not automatically ?

Did you change the end from dl=0 to dl=1

@Qralloq - This is the link google drive gave me:

I'm not sure what you're referring to.

Okay, that's doesn't that what I've seen.

I dug out a link to a helpful guide
Jan 10, 2021 12:34 am
Bingo!! and Thank you.

I'm not sure what was going on with the google drive, but sharing from my Dropbox took less than 30 seconds. We are in business :)

Just in case anyone does plan to share from Google Drive, you can generate direct links to stored images with this site. It works for embedding images in posts. :D
