Couldn't Post Photo:"..not possible to determine the size.."

Unread postby StevieG » Sat Oct 9, 2010 9:20 am

"...of your image."

I wanted to post the image in the ....Overseas / 'Glenfarne...' thread, that I ended up only linking to last night, but despite resizing the image down smaller to under the limit three times, until it claims to be 640 x 424 pixels, still couldn't post using [img] and pasting the Fotopic URL, it still being rejected as above. So I just linked to it by substituting [url]s for the [img]s.

Any suggestions please?

I am constantly being asked this. It is a Fotopic issue. Maybe in their system somewhere they will explain how to link. I have a feeling you may need to add &noresize=1 to the end of the URL. Check their documentation or simply use an uncomplicated free hosting system, choose from: http://www.free-webhosts.com/ .

Thanks for quick reply Sir.

But OOPS! Sorry not to be aware. It's ages since I tried an [img]. Either I didn't know or have forgotten if it was raised previously.
Thanks for tip re Fotopic.
RP may have encountered this at sometime, then.
