Again, I use postimage.  It seems to work fine for me.  Here is a link to the website:

Ah! There have been several reports of problems posting pics with IE 11. Plus of course the current security hole. Perhaps it's time to change your browser? Firefox works fine for me. Others swear by Chrome.


I'm using Windoze 7 Home Premium, IE11 and Photobucket with no problems other than the very annoying Light Switch bug.

I have now sorted the problem as far as images are concerned.

 

I just use the code [I m g] paste link [/ I m g] (without the spaces in the square brackets), and copy the link straight out of the 'share' in Smugmug.  The routine provided by the undevelopers is a dead loss, don't get me started .... :mad:  and the light switch works sometimes for quotes, sometimes not, sometimes the smillies are available sometimes not ....

 

:down: :down: :down:

 

(I hope I have described it right, please correct me if necessary)

http://postimg.org/image/vbxcmtltn/ Built this system in 1963 for the 2,5 FPF Climax which produced a satisfying gain in HP and better still the torque figures rose substantially proving that positive drive is far better than dizzy drive from the camshaft due to cam and gear windup at high revs. This system of two magnetos We used this system on the Youl T55 Cooper with much success being able to outpace the 2.7 liter engines in many cases. Hopefully a picture is attached as the process mind boggling.

ImageShack no longer offer anonymous hosting and, since they changed their terms, if you previously had a free account with them, as soon as you access it there is a thirty-day countdown - after which you can no longer use it without paying. They won't (deliberately) delete your images, but they are essentially 'frozen'.

 

Postimage still offers anonymous hosting and is very easy to use.

Hello Viesse2, I have signed up to Postimage, now I am going to try to place a photo here. this was taken at Sandown when Moss & Fangio visited. Do you know how many photos I can post using Postimage before it blocks me like ImageShack did?

There seem to be no restrictions. But since ImageShack went down the pay route some other free storage providers have quietly changed their terms, so I suppose there are no guarantees. Dropbox, who I have previously recommended, have now introduced a fee to create a public folder.

Thanks again Vitesse2 for your help. I have a few old slides which I'm currently scanning and I will now be able to post them. Just got to get them bigger

Don't neglect the fact that most ISPs in Australia give you webspace with your internet account...

It's not as simple to upload, but at least it's yours and available. Talk to your ISP about it.

Having not uploaded pictures on this forum, I carefully read the posting instructions as there are some different uploading policies for various forums (shouldn't say fora.

 

I noted that the recommended maximum size had been quoted as 800 pixels wide. Is this limit still in force? (A lot of formulas now use 1280 pixels wide)?

Bearing in mind that in this case, you could note open a jpeg file from a CD or DVD, I raised the question on a British forum. The answer from pro was that you don't damage a jpeg.file by closing it but only when you save as...

No, you can now ignore that. In the past the software was unable to cope with over-sized images and on small screens they would over-run to the right. The current software will now resize images to fit the user's screen. Clicking on the image opens it in a separate popup in the original size. You can further refine this by clicking on 'save' at the bottom right of that popup: this will open the image in a new tab or window - depending on your settings - so that you can further zoom it in or out using Ctrl +/-.

Thks for the early reply

 

Fine. I am now scanning photographs taken over more than fifty years. A lot of aircraft, but also motor bracing events from 1960 till 9th Grand Prix historique de Monaco (Fortunately since 2005, there already digital)

 

It is boring, so I grab a ledger at random and go thru it.

 

You will see some in the next few months.

Willy, you might benefit from using Irfanview...

It has a lot of really good features including one to change the jpeg compression.

Ray,

 

I am on Mac OS.X something. Would Irfanview work or is it for PC users only?

I tried to download Irfanview for someone with a Mac yesterday...

It didn't work. Sorry. Do you have another computer with Windows on it to pre-process stuff before transferring to the Mac?

Ray,

 

I have a laptop running on Windows 7, the worst so far (I, have been told that Windows 8 is even worst, difficult not believe) . The main problem lays with the screen which renders a blueish hue.Hence, it is not possible to do anything for the color setting. 

 

Nevertheless, I will see what I could do and let nyou.

I use it all right with Windows 7 on a laptop...

Maybe the hue is in the brand of computer?
