New feature for adding pics

Quick question: if I'm still using my hosting site for whatever reason, and I post a large pix, does that handicap the forum?

Let me give this new feature a try!

You must be using Direct Links.  And maintaining picture collections hosted elsewhere.  The only issue with a large picture using this method - can hurt page load times.  The Forum software has to link to the image code on your site.  We'll also resize it using CSS to fit our post - but the physical image size is unchanged.  Meaning the amount of data - and how long it takes to load.

See your using SmugMug.  The recent pics I see aren't very large - so you're doing something right.  No need to change, except using direct links means you have to enter bbcode in the post.  Nature of the beast!  What we're doing here is best explained in post #3.  Doesn't offer any major benefit to members using 3rd party image hosting for their own reasons.

Don't know how long this will be an available feature - it's rather experimental with our parent open source project.  Works as we speak, but doesn't do anything about size.  However the picture links can be edited to pull a thumbnail instead of the full image.  Might be easier to edit and change one character, but depends on how you're doing it I guess.

I try not to post anything too big from SM anyways.

Hmm copy from wherever didn't work because from the net,  it always ends up as the jpeg address. 

I could try that pix link above...

That's incorrect - has the https://www.simplyrecipes.com URL.  Not sure how you copied it, but the source link came too:

Here I'll copy the image by opening in a new tab and copy image.   Not image address or anything else!

Not getting into how Smartphones do common functions.  Varies from device to device from what I can tell.   Phil did so in the referenced guide thread, so we know it can be done.  BTW, used all 3 methods for posting pics in this reply.  Guides 9,10, and 11.
