My first attempt to post did not go through. I was able to post a link but that is what I did not intend to do. I'll keep working at this, hopefully I'll find the correct way...

Since you edited the post it's not clear what you did, whether it was slightly wrong or completely wrong A couple of points:1. the Url that you post should start with http:// and end in .jpg.

2. When you click the "preview" button you can tell immediately whether the image is showing, it's not necessary to complete the post for it to work. This gives a chance to make changes and repeat the "preview" until it is working, then click "post" when you are happy..

But, as I suggested above, if you are very lost in this area, better to do an actual post and leave your failed attempts visible so someone else can provide help.Regards,Peter..

Thanks Peter...

What I don't get is retrieving the image from a shared file. As I read other messages and post, people spoke about using smugmug, flckr, etc....

I'll keep trying....

Here goes it......

I copied and pasted the URL. At the end of the URL I typed in .jpg.

When viewing, I right-clicked this link and it directed me to the flickr site...

What they've been trying to say is that your pictures have to be somewhere that the DPR Forum software can access - not on your own PC but hosted on an internet website that's set to allow image linking..

For instance, I keep mine on pbase (www.pbase.com), whose paid-up members have this facility. The account I use costs $23 a year, for which I am allowed 500Mb of gallery space - sufficient for thousands of pictures - with unlimited traffic..

As an example, one of my galleries there (think of it as an online folder) has this URL: http://www.pbase.com/isolaverde/dpr.

I see you've written previously about lightmeters, so here's the URL of a picture of one within that gallery: http://www.pbase.com/isolaverde/image/69626419.

And, if I add ' .jpg ' (without the ' ' marks) directly onto the end that URL, the image itself miraculously appears in the thread, rather than the URL, like this:.

Image control:Zoom outZoom 100%Zoom inExpand AllOpen in new window.

Doing this brings up a conveniently sized version, more or less 800x600 pixels, but other sizes can be forced in instead (small, medium or the original if it's bigger than 800x600)..

So here's the small one, I'll not bother with the others!.

I guess I was trying to copy the picture from the main menu. When I right clicked on the picture it opened up another window that contained the URL with the ending "jpg". That is what I copied then posted. The picture came out when I viewed the thread..

What an ordeal, although it took me over an hour to figure out, I'm glad that I finally did it..

Thank you folks for your patience and guidance!.

Aloha!..

Beware - you are taking advantage of a peculiarity of pbase, but what you suggest is not generally true and won't work with other servers..

There are three ways to post images here:.

- Post a link to a web page containing the image. Any valid web page URL (address) should work; the forum software will change it into a clickable link..

- Post a link directly to an image file. This must be of the form address/filename.jpg (or .gif) Not all servers allow you to do this, but when they do the dpreview software will embed the image directly in your post..

- As above but add a semicolon (;) directly after the .jpg - this tells the dpreview software to create a link instead of embedding the actual image..

To find out the image address/filename, right click on the image on your hosting web page and choose Properties. In Internet Explorer you need to copy the value of Address (URL). Often, part of the address is beyond the end of the field - be sure to include all of it. Firefox calls the image address the image Location but the principle is the same...

Yep, I've seen that. I just wanted to add to Isola Verde's post, to avoid any possible confusion amongst other readers...

Thank You!. Been trying for so long to figure this out and so this is how you do it. It's only a thumbnail but I'll keep working on it..

I just bought a Sony DSLR-a200. I'm looking forward to sharing some of those photos, but I have to learn how to do that first. There is definitely a learning curve with a new camera, but I will contribute a favorite "oldie, but goodie" photo of a little blue heron that I took with my Panasonic FZ-5. Thank you everyone for helping with this thread..
