I can find the URL but i keep getting error message "It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image." when i try to upload from flickr. I even tried reducing pixture size to 500 pixels at largest side but I still get the same message. You no longer get to the url by picking all sizes, now you go under share, but there is no way to select size. Can someone tell me what i'm doing wrong?
On flicker, under your photostream open up the picture you want to share. Just above the photo there should be "Actions (several image buttons) " then "share" Click On Share. There are will be two options, but it should open up to a box with some code in it with a size selction at the bottom, with some radio buttons. For the round radio buttons select BBC code ( for the forum), On the drop down menu for the size, select "Medium 500..." then just copy and past all of the code in the box into the post, and the following will happen:

Just a shot in the dark. After editing size, try logging out of Flickr and then logging back in. I used to have to do this with photobucket but not lately.

Flickr just locked me out because there's no way I'm signing up for a yahoo account just so I can use their unreliable service. :( So I guess I'm looking for alternative options again....

TeaChat not letting me attach files even though they are the right size at 630px max. Has file size changed recently? I reduced this image to 85KiB so it would post, way too small.

i HIGHLY doubt anyone's going to make use of this, but here's what i've been doing because posting images to this site has frankly always been a complete PITA... i hope, if nothing else, this post illustrates the need to make this suck less.

https://gist.github.com/anonymous/32f33 ... 90b6024a24

this script takes a path to an image (local file or URL), generates a thumbnail (because teachat requires 640x1000 px max), and uploads the image and thumbnail to imgur.
then it copies BBCode to the clipboard that embeds the thumbnail in the IMG tag and makes it a link to the fullsize image, so you can just paste it in your post. example (click for fullsize image):

Code: Select all

it's written for macOS and should work on linux etc, possibly with minor tweaking.
it has the following dependencies:
imagemagick convert
imgur-screenshot
they can be easily installed using homebrew:

Code: Select all

brew install imagemagick imgur-screenshot
enjoy :lol: :roll:

Looks like the picture attachment issue has been corrected. You can now again post images up to x640pixels

Thanks Ferg. It would be great if teachat had a place were we could see each members pictures with links. And or under each Topic the ability to see a catalogue of just pictures with links. There are so many inspired images posted here over the years.
