Using two methods:
First way is image tag and pasting URL (this way seems to show image at full size and not clickable)
Second is using "Insert from Gallery" and it uses an Album tag (this seems to show thumbnail and is clickable to full size, I like this method)

Using Windows 7 and Chrome browser.

At a loss. Can't understand any of this.

My normal host, Tinypic, has failed for the last few days.

I can't seem to resize using Google photos.

Imgur works, but I don't know how to cut and paste the address. Just clicking on the available boxes here doesn't help, and no way to paste the image address.

Yes, I'm basically computer illiterate. Don't know a dashboard from a task bar. But I've been 'copy and pasting' for years using Tinypic.

How do I make an image just show up?

  • I also tried several sites to re-size photos prior to posting them here, but I later switched to using Microsoft Paint, that was a native feature on my Toshiba laptop PC. Now, I use it for photos, drawings, everything that requires editing. But recently, I have also started using Microsoft Photos (which comes with Windows 8 and 10), for altering, modifying, and re-sizing photos, too. I've set my Samsung Galaxy S7 (SM-G930A) on 4032 x 3024 resolution (12 million pixels), which makes the raw image very large, and definitely needs size reduction for posting here (and I reduce the size for long-term file storage as well), but it shows details better, I think, and let's me see flaws that may need touch-up.
  • I'm no photographer, but I'm fascinated with the quality of images taken by new-er smartphones...a quantum leap from my first Kodak Brownie box camera (in the 50's), my official Boy Scout camera (in the early 60's), or even my last film camera, a Canon SureShot autofocus (1980?), lost after 30 years of use. My wife's fancy Canon Rebel EOS, bought for her insurance adjustment claims work, is off-limits to me, so I'm using my Samsung phone cameras instead (first Rugby 2 = 2mp, then Rugby Pro = 5mp, now a S7 = 12mp). I also have a small Kodak digital camera, which seems to have gone missing after our home replacement project, but I'll keep using the S7, which is handier, and has more megapixels.
  • Try using those Microsoft programs for re-sizing or editing your photos,but if you have a Mac, I don't have a clue. I tried photo editing on my android phones, but just couldn't find an app that worked as well as the ones on my PC...besides, I have a 21" monitor plugged into my laptop, less than 3 feet from me, making viewing/editing much easier on my old eyes.

I give up. Tried a couple other methods and I'm missing something. I got a message that said only drafts are saved and anything else will be deleted. :NC

I don't understand the img, url and adding as an attachment stuff, so I'll just stick to lurking. :)

Update! Tinypic is back up! At least for a while, so here goes!
