    Carl your link works...........to get the pic to show on the board, I right clicked on your pic, copied it, and pasted it here.

    Steve, that looks to be a killer project! I love the sleek "wingless jet" look of those '61 Buicks!
    As Carl mentioned........I tried to use the direct image code on my end, and it wasn't working. I've gone to right clicking on the pic, hit copy image, and then paste it in your text box. The pic should show up like this one from my Photobucket album.............

    That's what'll have to work for me for the time being..........at least till some of the other bugs can be worked out.

    Alright, let's see if this works....................

    Looks like I still have to "right click" and copy the image........then I can paste it here. I'm going to stay with that method for me as it's the least crazy making.
    I still get the endless "swirly ball" if I try to insert the URL into the "Insert Image From URL".................

    Kevin, the squashed view went away after I adjusted my screen resolution a bit. Lately as the 'ol eyes get older, I have to "blow things up" so I can see them. The 'Vette appeared squashed too at first. but once I backed off on the resolution, it looked normal as I originally uploaded it.
    Here's a pic from Photobucket...............

    No I didn't build this! This is a Danbury Mint I once had but sold a few years ago.
    Seems to work with them also!

    Tom, I just right clicked on the pic, hit "copy image", then pasted it here in the text box. It showed up right away, and seems to be a bit distorted on my end.
    Let's try another...............

    OK.........this one's looking fine from my end. Might have been the way the first pic was originally loaded. Anyway, that seems to be the way to go to get pics to show here from Fotki. I have a Photobucket account, and I'll see how that method works here shortly.

    Gene, LOVE those AMX's! Save for the white stripe, your yellow '69 looks EXACTLY like the one I owned years ago! Practically the exact shade of yellow too!

    The pic appears "squashed" from my view.........I copied the image from Fotki, and pasted in the reply box. That's one way to get pics to show from there------just appears distorted too much for me.
    .......................And now the blue color I like to use has been scrubbed for the moment it seems.

    Same thing happened to me just now Bill, as I tried to reply to the pic I posted and what I was seeing on my end.
    Oh well...........back to the drawing board!
  9. MrObsessive added a post in a topic New Site/Forum Look   

    OK-----here's a test to see if this'll work from Fotki.

    OK.............Now I'll try to post this...............
  10. MrObsessive added a post in a topic New Site/Forum Look   

    OK, I just attached this pic from my own hard disc, and not from Fotki. I see the box with the drop down menu where you can attach a pic to a post with its URL---------tried that just now from Fotki, and it's still not working. FWIW, I'm on my laptop as opposed to my PC, and the issue remains the same.
    Here's the pic from my hard disc...........


    I see it showing up on my end..........let's see if It remains after I hit the "Submit Reply" button.
    OK, that works........But as Tom mentioned, is there going to be a limit on how many pics one can post using this method?
    ..................And here's another. Didn't see the "Max Total Size" amount change as of yet.

    Ken it seems as though the board is having trouble linking pics. I just tried to post a pic on another thread from Photobucket and Fotki, and neither one would show. Must have just started today, as I had no trouble at all last week posting those Mustang pics.
    Calling Dave Ambrose!
  12. MrObsessive added a post in a topic 59 Plymouth vert with some 3d printedparts -the windshield   

    I just clicked on the initial link you posted and it took me to your Photobucket page. I've been doing a little test on this thread as far as getting pics to show, and NOTHING will show up from different sites! This includes Photobucket, Fotki, Google, etc...........
    I usually post from FF, but I tried the board on Chrome and am still having the same issue. As I mentioned, it could be the board is suffering from another glitch.........I'm not sure, but there are other threads where pics have been posted and they're showing.

    The pic didn't show Doug, but I looked up the URL and it looks pretty neat! I might have printed the entire cowl area with the windshield posts for strength, but it looks pretty good.
    Seems as though Photobucket  and Fotki are having technical issues as I couldn't get your pic to post here..........hmmmm.
    Or maybe the board is having difficulties?
     
  14. MrObsessive added a post in a topic New Site/Forum Look   

    Yeah, I'm familiar with that neat trick.
    The difficulty with that is it can change the board's "style" and I have to go back and reset things the way they were. No big deal............I just like the bolder print when it comes to web pages as sometimes when you use that feature, it shifts the page around horrendously, and it becomes a bit of a nuisance.
    The solution for me is new eyes! In the near future however, I really need to see about getting a new prescription for glasses. I'm way overdue for new ones, and I do know that without 'em I'm legally blind. They tell me without glasses my vision is 20/600, and last I checked that's considered legally blind unless things have changed.
    Ken, I've had no trouble-----as of last week I posted photos of my WIP '67 Mustang and I had no issues with the amount of pics I posted.

    Not to mention that there are some of us that may NOT want to deal with a particular subject in resin! I can kind of see their apprehension though-------even just to tool up a new body can cost tens of thousands, and with today's economy, they like anyone have to watch every nickle.
    Still, it would be great to see a new Ranchero from the '57 Del Rio..............
    We'll have to wait and see!
