Crop and rotate should be done before uploading, as should any annotations (arrows, etc).
In fact if you're scanning, you should be able to scan at the correct orientation, even if what you're scanning is at an odd angle.

If you loaded an image into imgbox some time ago then visiting 'your images' and even selecting one, does not provide a link. The selected image opens in a new tab; the URL for this image is

Code: Select all

https://imgbox.com/pfZtqldg
Image

That, of course is the page and not the image. If I right-click on 'View Image Info' I can see that the image URL is

Code: Select all

https://images2.imgbox.com/4f/3b/pfZtqldg_o.jpeg
I copied that, and pasted it bwteeen \img/ code here, and removed the 's' in https to get the above picture to load.

But if anybody knows another way to get the URL for an image not loaded recently, then I would be interested to know of it.

Of course if the image has been used here on Stampboards when originally loaded to imgbox, then it is likely that it has already been transferred to the SB server.

This image has these two URLs, one on SB, one on Imgbox; all you have to remember is where you posted it on SB and then right click to 'copy image location' and paste that between \img/ codes instead.

Code: Select all

Is this what you want norvic?

If you want to copy the BB-CODE of any image you had uploaded some time ago and the BB-CODE does not appear on the screen.....

#1.. Go to MY IMAGES

Image

#2.. Select thumbnail image and go to BOTTOM LEFT pop-up square and click TICK

Image

#3.. Click on upward right-sweeping ARROW at Upper Right under the THREE BARS

Image

#5.. On the next page, go down to BB-Code and COPY the greyed-out CODE

Image

Image

#6.. PASTE in SB and remove the "S" in the middle

Thanks - that will do it as well. Except that the 'copy' function doesn't work even with flash enabled, so it's still a highlight, copy & paste job. The only difference between this result and what I suggested is that this gives the URL to the sometimes larger image as well.

Even easier - find your image on StampBoards and copy image location. (You probably knew that already- sometimes easier said than done!). Certainly Imgur had the advantage that you could quickly scan through all your images. I hope that any new system will have some similar facility!

Hi, testing an upload for the first time. Maybe not the most exciting Swedish stamp, but hopefully acceptable for a first try.

Just practicing posting an image - I have created an account in Imageshack although (not yet read their terms) that I will need to pay at some stage - which I won't.

I was just hoping that I could simply copy and paste an image from my local image folder on my laptop?? I've tried to read all the technical image posting blurb here in StampBoards but the HUGE text font makes browsing through all the detail quite hard and actually tiresome - IMHO.

Anyway, here goes - could Admin please let me know if this is all OK?

Well your preview button works the same as mine. You see what I see.

A nice avatar size tiny little image of a very drab stamp, if that is what you were aiming at, for some reason?

Very clear and VERY simple instructions how to make it bigger are in post #1 - oops - you find reading instructions on anything "tiresome" - apologies for bothering you.

Following this is SO very complex and "tiresome" for certain Brits - :roll: :roll:

Many thanks "Sheriff" - we'll get along just fine 8) - and yes I agree the image was small and is drab but it was just a test. However, it all seemed to work OK which was the main thing - I didn't want to break any rules and get arrested!

I've got the full Adobe design suite so can actually do what I want with images - albeit that Imageshack has editing options etc.

Keep C-19 Safe Sheriff - from across the pond!

DoT Orders ISPs To Block 39 Websites That Allow Sharing Of Pornographic Content

Brindaalakshmi K

By Brindaalakshmi K brindaa@medianama.com June 26, 2013
Share This: Share via Email


Department of Telecommunication (DoT) has directed Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to block 39 websites that allow users to share pornographic content, reports Times of India.

The report also states that most of these websites are web forums, where Internet users share images and URLs to download pornographic files and are hosted outside India with operation under the 18 USC 2257 rule enforced by the US. No specific reason has been mentioned for the blocking of these websites. It is also not clear which are the 39 websites that are being blocked.

Other website blocks: In the last ten days, a number of other websites including image hosting sites imagebam.com and imgbox.com, foreign blog dealing with politics lookingglass.blog.co.uk, filesharing sites Uploaded.net, ul.to, and image hosting site stooorage.com have been blocked without any explanation or reason for blocking these websites. It is not clear if these websites have been blocked by the DoT or the ISPs.

I noticed today that Imgur is offering a subscription service- which seemed likely to come:"Coil" for $5 per month.

"How does a Coil membership support Imgur?
Powering Imgur’s content and community isn’t free. We can make money to run our business in two ways: by showing advertisements, or through Coil. When you subscribe to Coil and browse Imgur, they handle the logistics, and we receive a percentage of your membership fee from Coil. This sort of direct support gives us the freedom to build a better, more community-focused experience, less reliant on advertising."

I had wondered how their service was funded as hadn't noticed advertising in the past.

In any case we are not using it! (personally finding Imageshack good- $18 for a year- not so much to pay!)

Hello mobbor

You need the BB-Code.

You selected HTML-Code (Middle code) instead of BB-Code (Far right code)

HTML-Code starts with:- a href="http://imgbox.com/

You need to select the "BB Code", not the HTML Code. Don't forget to remove the "s" from "https".
