Oh my, things are getting more and more complicated.  :smiley-confuse:
I don't think that is completely fair. What's your own view about suggesting that users include ;image to facilitate Internet Explorer users.

Being old and lazy, I just want to:
Attach my image, copy the url to it (or copy a url of an internet image) then use
 [img]     [/img]
Or
[center][url=http://][img width=500]http://[/img] [/url][/center]


Wish the sponsors would put things back to the way it was 3 years ago, but that won't happen.

OK, does this piece of text explain the situation adequately and correctly?
I like it.

However I must say I am reluctant to include...
I'm on the fence.  Adding the extra bit is annoying.  But not adding it excludes a small audience.

A footnote perhaps?

If there was a clamour from several Forum users I might feel differently about it.
Exactly.

Which is why I'm deferring the decision.  But the situation deserves discussion.

I like that course of action. :)

I will put the text from Reply #13 into a new Reply so it stands on its own without comments and I will include a line in my Original Post to refer readers to it.

Apparently images presented using the standard Forum BB code (like this)
[img]http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=519037.0;attach=239016[/img]
are not visible on some versions of Internet Explorer. Until such time as the Forum programmers fix this you can help IE users by adding ;image to the BB code so that it looks like this
[img]http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=519037.0;attach=239016;image[/img]

I suspect you are not as lazy as you pretend so maybe you could take a few minutes to write a Reply that explains to people how to size and position an image. I can then mention it in my Original Post

How about sharing the work by turning "maybe something from" into a self-contained Reply here so that I can put a link in my Original Post that says "Reply #XX explains how to size and position images"

I have specific problems trying to use links from Google Photos. I think I know why, the link damn site uses is not to an image, but to a frame. Maybe drive doesn't screw with things...
Just because I live in the states don't mean I care

Some picture hosting sites are specifically designed so their images cannot be embedded in other web pages. That is not an Arduino Forum problem.
