Welcome aboard Colin.
I think the message you are getting relates to the fact that some 12 months ago (or thereabouts) Photobucket started to charge users for having an account with them.
Several of us on here used Photobucket (a photo hosting site) to add photos to their threads. Some of us (me included) didn’t want to pat for our Photobucket accounts so the links to our photos were severred.
So it’s nothing that you’ve done wrong it’s just an unfortunate event from a while back.
Any photos added in the last 15 months aho (by other methods or using different hosting sites) should be fine.
Hope that helps.
Martin

Thanks for the quick replies.

I am sure that there are a range of ways people include photos and video's, and some issues must be expected.

G'day from Australia, Colin, and welcome to the NGF!  :thumbsup:

Don't worry mate, I've been having problems posting pictures since the update, so it's nothing you've done, I assure you.

Hi all,

While were on the subject of posting pics. I think I asked the question and don't think I got an answer (apologies if I did) but when the gallery is sorted can I post like I used to?

I have a problem with making the pics smaller to post so shall/can I just wait so I can post them or go on a computer course?

Thanks for any help.

Cheers weave  :beers:

The new gallery has come to halt, due to the author not helping us with what is needed.  :'(  I have to wait until they update it with what we need.  You will be able to edit photo's with the upgrade, but for now, you will need to do them yourself.

Going back on topic, I'm finding the forum to be very quick.

I find the making of pictures smaller a tad awkward so use Flickr, certainly till the forum sloution is fixed.
Flickr is free as long as you limit yourself to 1000 photos and is easy.
I can send you a “How to do it” in bullet point form if you wish.

Why do you think nobody has mentioned how fast it is lately? (Talk about tempting fate!)  :)

Hi Martin,

That would be great. I'm a complete computer numpty but my wife, who isn't, works very long hours in IT and although I do ask for help sometimes, it's best not to. She's not an ogre, just very tired and the last thing she wants to do when she gets in.

 Understandable, I'm a Landscape/Maintenance Gardener and our garden is crap  :)

A PM would be good and I'll give it a go.

Thank you so much.

Cheers weave  :beers:

@weave , if you like send me the photos you want to post and I'll reduce them for you and send them back or put them in your gallery.
You know you're getting older when your mind makes commitments your body can't meet.

Thank you Brian,

Here be one of the many problems of being a luddite, computer numpty in that I don't know how to send you the pics in the first place  :doh: :).

Have been in contact with Martin via PM so hopefully we can sort something out tomorrow. Any further help always appreciated but please don't fry my brain with technology  :)

Cheers weave  :beers:

Weave, no need to go on a computer course. Download this freebie. Its pretty much idiot proof.

Pix Resizer its called, and that's what it does  :D

if your using windows open the image in paint then either drag the image to the size you want,or use the resize tab and type in the percentage change you want in the horizontal and vertical boxes.if your using a real operating system you can do it at the command prompt using the mogrify command.No idea how to do it with apples though

On a Mac, use the preview App - great for conversions ( PDF to JPG etc) . You can resize a JPG by using Export and changing the resolution of the JPG.
