On a different topic FigHearted asked:
Can you explain why this video, along with SOME of the photos here on the forum, show full screen images while most that I see show only small thumbnails that we have to click on individually? I like it better when I see a full image. Is it something I and others am not doing when uploading?
I will address the photo portion of the question first by showing two examples. Here is a photo that is inserted into the post inline.
In order to do this you have to first have the photo hosted off your computer. There are dozens of free online photo hosting services, here are just a few: Google Photos. Imgur. Dropbox. TinyPic. Use.Flickr. 500px.SmugMug. In this example I am using imgur.
Once you save the picture on the host site you need to copy the link to the photo, you will need it shortly.
The next step is to find the button in the ribbon just above
Clicking the button will insert the following text code in your post or comment
The cursor will be blinking in the center of the brackets. Your next step is to paste or type the link to your hosted photo right where your cursor is flashing formatted like this
As you can see in this tutorial I have placed the photo and the steps inline so you do not have to click a thumbnail to open them one at a time. It also allows you to comment or describe each photo if you are posting several.
The second way to include a photo in your topic post or comment is to use the "Attachments and other options" button below. The primary differences when you use this second method are
1) your photos show up as thumbnails that have to be opened to view
2) the only way to add a descriptions to a series of photos is to rename each file name
3) when you attach a photo you are uploading the photo to SFF so SFF must store the photo on their servers (in times past this storage was very costly, not so much now).
