Testing some different photo sizes
« on: January 01, 2018, 11:55:11 AM »
from Flickr (sorry they all show up the same size in the preview)

Medium 800x600



Large 1024 x 768



Large 1600 x 1200

I roamed and rambled, and I foller'ed my footsteps
   To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
   And all around me a voice was a'sounding
   This land was made for you and me

Someone who knows more about this can perhaps comment, but I think that the board software caps the image size displayed in posts to 640x480 pixels no matter what size one specifies on Flikr.

I believe that is correct, however if you have the image linked to an external host, you can right click and "open in new tab". This will allow you to view the image in its native size.

Has anyone figured out how to embed photos posted on Adobe Lightroom?

Now that Photobucket is no longer hosting images (for free at least) to post on a 3rd website, where are y'all keeping your pictures?

Imgur will let you set up an account and have albums, but it seems that if you upload in bulk, the order will get scrambled when it randomly assigns file names. :eusa_doh: That makes it more tedious to embed images, as you have to go get the URL for each image.

Can you generate a url from Lightroom? You are talking about the hosted version? My version of Lightroom runs on my PC so I have to publish the images elsewhere.

The displayed image size is capped at 640x640. This means anything larger is scaled down to fit within that size. As we found out the hard way several years ago, extremely large embedded images in a post with lots of them can bog down the software so much that the page won't fully load. Using Flickr lets you select the size of the image to embed, while providing a link to the one on their site where the viewer can select from available resolutions.



For most other hosting sites, Imgur, etc., it's a balancing act of optimizing file size and resolution.

If you have a cloud version of Lightroom, you can share a "Lightroom Collection" You cannot hotlink (I don't think). You can however set up a free Google Drive and link your photos from that. Create a shareable link on your Google Drive and copy that link. Paste it between the image headers, BUT CHANGE the word OPEN in the link to UC. You can then hotlink.

The free Google drive allows 15GB of free storage. If you have a Gmail account you have a Google Drive. If not you can sign up for a free one


The shareable link on the Google Drive looks like this

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1gehdiJfCbES6ml9KP-j8MIKL8A71WfCi        Change the word open to uc

So it looks like this

https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1gehdiJfCbES6ml9KP-j8MIKL8A71WfCi

And place the link inside the img tags like normal

The below photo is hotlinked from my Google Drive

You can through the Adobe Cloud. You can share any photo to the cloud via your desktop version of the software. But when you post the shared URL using the "Insert Image" function it does not embed the photo for whatever reason.

You can't hotlink (I don't think) to Lightroom cloud version. Look 2 posts up for a way to hotlink from a free Google Drive

Also....any image that is hotlinked to the forum will be resized dynamically to the 640x480 max that Richard referred to. You can still right click on a hotlinked photo and "open in new tab" to view the native size.

Come on! You’re an intelligent guy and I have provided a 15GB free effective solution.

How about “Gee BK, thanks for the 15GB free effective solution” ?

It is the age of technology!  :victory: Get with the program :icon_smile:

Everyone likes a free effective solution. Don’t they?
