One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.

i do not bother resizing since i am hosting the picture somewhere else....

Excellent explanation. I was about to make a set of images to illustrate, but yours does the job nicely!

Concerning image re-sizing, when pics are downloaded from a camera (e.g., raw), they can often be upwards of 20MB each depending on resolution! When you upload pics from Picasa (computer app) to PicasaWeb (now Google+ Photos), it automatically reduces the image size suitable for web posting. For example, I just checked one pic that was 6.5MB when imported from my Canon PowerShot. After uploading to Google+ Photos, it was reduced to 66KB.

Thanks Ken!

Yep, since Picasa does not 'charge' you for the smaller sized pictures i just upload in the medium size and leave it at that.   works great....and i have a LOT of albums full of pictures and still am not near the max!

I was tinkering with Picasa yesterday trying to do a linked clickable photo like John C. always does.  Even used their provided "Link to this Photo" shortcuts but it would just not work here on the forum, it just kept showing the text when I did a preview.  Not sure if it's something with Picasa or since it's a free account.  Flickr works fine using BBCode, but I didn't notice any BBCode link info on Picasa.

Mike: I also only have a free account...but I noticed that something had gone weird with their provided url link...so i stopped using it.....

To do what you want to do is to put the IMAGE tags&Url inside the Link URL.
[url=http://goo.gl/mM7eV][img]http://goo.gl/JOmjI[/img][/url]

so the first URL put in is the webpage itself and then the image's url is second.

and that should give you: a clickable picture to the following page



URLs for this example were shortened to make them able to fit on one line....YMMV!

@skb: i am not certain how long it took you to figure out that tweak but darn it works well!

Earlier today I added another Rev Twisted to my photobucket and changed the title of the first one, I see here says it's been moved or deleted, I thought it may say that because I changed the title, so I changed the title of the Rev Nagel Girls but that picture is still here even though I changed that title too. Why is that I wonder?

Nevermind, I just got back and I see the picture was gone, so if I change my titles in photobucket the pictures disappear from here.

Actually it was only about 100'.....the drift innovation camera I use has a super wide angle lense : 170 degrees....so it looks higher....also takes big pix but I let picasa shrink them....

I like to use Imgur.com. it seems simpler than anything else. i just click the upload button, pick as many photos as i want. Then each image has a code generator like stated before. Or you can post whole albums.

The link looks like: [IMG ]http://i.imgur.com/oTEih.jpg[/img]

and here is the real image.


just thought i would throw in my opinion.
