I have used that technique also. Alas I cannot remember when or in what Thread so I can't check if it is still working.

It would be a real PITA if they have broken a very convenient feature.

I haven't had the images break yet, the image in my sig is done this way. The original thread has it listed at almost a 1/4 million downloads over almost a year & still is going strong.

The method does not work with Internet Explorer 10 or 11.

Do people still use Internet Explorer?

Why does Microsoft insist on making it non-standard?

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

The IE must remain non-standard, so that as many web pages as possible can be viewed only by the latest IE on the latest Windows version, not on older Windows or by FF on a Mac or Linux machine :-]

I suspect the vast majority of Americans accessing the forum from work have no choice.

This particular problem is a question of recovering gracefully.  The forum software includes a disposition tag that conflicts with the way the data stream is being used.  Obviously, Firefox and Chrome recover gracefully using the data stream the way the HTML author intended.  Internet Explorer, on the other hand, just does not bother.

So, it is actually possible Microsoft is adhering to the latest internet standards and Firefox / Chrome are not.  But I doubt it.

In any case, recovering gracefully should always trump any standards.

Microsoft is/has replaced I.E. with Edge (Windows 10)
https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/windows/microsoft-edge

I am convinced 'Edge' will be the answer to all the worlds woes.




NOT !



No technical PMs.
The last thing you did is where you should start looking.

Yeah, its a bit incorrect. Religion and terrorism should be the same line...

EDIT ... test FAIL and FAIL again... fruc it and post on google drive its easier to add a link than it is to add a picture...least size doesn't matter (well that's what she said)
It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.

You seem to have posted the path to your local copy:

What you need is the link of the image you uploaded:

Yup there it is in only half its glory (70% to be precise).

The only reason it shows quite well here is that it is a 24 Mp pseudo macro shot taken with a 300 mm lens then cropped quite extensively to fit the limits of the forum.

Most of the other sites I take part in have a simple file selection option even allowing multiple files to be selected not a danged URL !

The also tend not to have file size limits per pic (except large or high megapixel panoramic's )
They often do that by moving the pics offsite to such as Amazon for high speed storage and retrieval to keep forums etc at acceptable speeds.

Its no wonder so many people in these forums prefer to use Dropbox or cloud site links for thier pictures (myself included) despite some of the seniors in here refusing to even look at them on occasion or having to do the post themselves. (like you just did LOL)

Many sites also allow viewing of a full or original size image by simple clicking on it rather than it being constrained to WYSIWYG

I know some find this archaic Arduino method acceptable and know how to work it quite well through the multiple steps needed. Me ? nah !

I know this link is a photography site but I can throw up to 10 x 24 megapixel pics up in a couple of clicks.
Yes they are slightly constrained but that's to help prevent plagiarising and such and there are some world class pics up there. But regardless of that it maintains the quality quite well and I have swapped a few pics with others for the originals.

OK pet peeve / rant over as I know anything I said will fall on deaf ears.

Give some thought to those of us with low-speed broadband and reduce the pixel count to 640x480 or 1280x960 before uploading.

I agree that the system on this Forum is a PITA. But please use it as it makes it easier for us to help you - I presume that is your principal objective.
