In terms of the aesthetics; this building in IMHO is a good design. Or at least a STANDARD design.:D

SWEEEEEEET photo (http://farm1.static.flickr.com/220/445704415_1aaa144ca7_b.jpg)...thanks.

p.s. please folks, no more thumbnail photos: they are useless. Unless, that is: it is only a MAC issue. On my computer screen they show up "literally" the size of a postage stamp.

I have a MAC - you just need to click on the thumbnail and it will take you to a normal sized version

Egad.

Yes, but I suspect that I am missing something here. Am I supposed to cut/paste them to my desktop? Or go to imageshack and create a link to them?

If someone can 'inform' me on how to view the full-sized image of a thumbnail photo I would greatly appreciate it: then i can put that 'old school' magnifing glass back in the desk drawer. :cool:

I'll delete these posts after we get this straightened out.

Are the thumbnails clickable, and if they are, what happens?

You should get a full sized image, either in a page forward, new window, or new tab - depending on how your browser is configured.

Many of the photos on WiredNY (and all photos posted by you) show up on my screen as a photo image that is approx 1" inch square.

If the photos were at least 3" inches sqare they would be good enough.

However, there are plenty of full sized photos to view here a WNY. Perhaps thumbnail photos are being posted to the forum instead of the larger format images; simply because they download faster.

Here is a photo where I "choose" the thumbnail option. http://img57.imageshack.us/img57/4015/img0003fz7.th.jpg (http://img57.imageshack.us/my.php?image=img0003fz7.jpg)


I will send up another of the same photo: but I will "choose" the larger format option.

Here is the same image: but this time I 'choose' the 800X600 (larger format) image option. http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/5793/img0003cs6.jpg (http://imageshack.us)

So, I think, if one chooses "thumbnail" at the photo hosting site: that is what will show up here on the forum.

The minimum size photo choice I select for posting on the forum is 640X480 and the next larger optionis 800X600 and my guess is that is what need be done by all members posting photos to the forum.

Here is a 640X480 image: good size for message boards. http://img292.imageshack.us/img292/6223/img0003ww2.jpg (http://imageshack.us)

The thumbnail is just a small picture representing a link to a page at Imageshack that displays the image at FULL SIZE. When you click the thumbnail, you're really clicking the link.

Again, are you able to click the thumbnails?

I do click-on the thumbnail photo: but it doesn't link to the full sized photo.

p.s. I am not a member of the photo host site: that may be why I can not see the full sized image.

Give me a few minutes.

Both of the thumbnails above have the exact same code format (except for the image numbers and titles). Clicking each brings up the full image at Imageshack.

I've stripped away the thumbnail code below, so they appear as links.

Clicking these links leads to the same full size images.

What do you get when you click each one, full image or reduced?

Yes, with these images the link to the full size image is working: not the case before - how did you do that?

The links (from the thumbnails) only worked when you sent the photos: all other attempts to view the full size image fail. This is somthing that I may just have to live with: until I get some free time to look further into it - for now I need to log-out soon.

P.S. I do appriciate your effort to correct the problem Zippy - thanks again.

I didn't do anything. Just copied the code from the hotel thread, and put it here.

If one works, the other should.

I'm at a loss.

P.S. I will have to let this go: I am at a loss on this myself. Thanks - the thumbnail photos will have to do for now. :confused:

O.K. I found out why the "link" from a thumbnail photo did not work. My User CP selections were not properly set to SHOW IMAGES. I was seeing only the code (not images) which links to the thumbnail and terminates there: not allowing for the "second jump" to the full sized image.

If anyone else can not link from a thumbanil, here is how to fix the problem:
Go to the User CP panel. Choose EDIT OPTIONS. Scroll to THREAD DISPLAY OPTIONS. Then enable the "show images" option.

Maybe this thread needs to be edited down to a few posts, including the question and the answer, in case anyone else has this problem.....
