    Just Testing IMG. (cannot do it in Test forum as IMG is "off" there) No Reply needed.

    Just testing.
    Hi, Sorry to use this Sub Forum for testing. But I am havening some IMG issues which I am unable to test in the Development Testing Forum as there the IMG Code is OFF. I did not wish to hijack again The many Threads on this Theme.. So I am taking the liberty do some tests here in a fresh Thread. Hope this is OK.

    . The issue today is that the free upload file sharing site I was using to get the IMG link is not working. So I am trying another alternative site that is free for a trial period of 30 days.

    . So I paste in the two IMG type links they offer. - And see what happens
    Alan.
    P.s. If anyone can suggest any free site alternatives I would be grateful. I will not give the name of the site I was using until today, as I believe we wish to not encourage too much usage of images. But please feel free to PM me on this Theme if you wish.



    OK. So after dragging a .jpg to this new site, I click on the Image.
    . It gets bigger and amongst other things I have an option on the right that says GET LINKS / IMAGE SIZES. I click on that.
    . A GET LINKS Dialogue box comes up. In that there is a TYPE box with 4 drop down options: Direct ; Forum : Alt (Old) Forum ; and finally HTML.
    I will just try Forum and Alt(Old) Forum for now. As they look like some sort of IMG thing. (They are Almost identical

    (I am using Google Chrome just now)


    Forum:





    Alt (Old) Forum

    OK, so I have a temporary solution

    BTW. That last Image was a screen shot of the strange "Pirate" site discussed in the Thread "Forum copy?"

    Trying another option through Box...

    These links using the Excel Forum editor Icon “Insert Image”

    https://app.box.com/s/hzd4sqyzz5jewwm0zh3mjmr1zohpsfqp

    https://app.box.com/representation/f...2048_jpg/1.jpg

    that does not work….. the Insert Image Dialogue box will not accept them…

    so… no Box solution

    . 3) …however it gives me a second option to get a picture (.jpeg) file from my computer … So I try that, using the same file which I uploaded to box

    .. OK.... looks like.... (...apart from the Duplicate Post issue discussed elswhere
    Post # 38
    http://www.excelforum.com/the-water-...ly-needed.html
    ...
    .)

    .... I should stay with HTML Code Tags for sharing a BB Code type thing.......

    ....so for clarity again.

    Now for completeness to test my second method for posting images discussed in Post # 3

    ..


    Again I will upload both the .jpeg first and then second the .png



    ..But first in HTML Code Tags to show here what I actually paste in the Excel Forum Editor Window

    HTML Code: 
    
    ..  .jpeg
    
    [ATTACH]378883[/ATTACH]
    
    
    
    .   .png
    
    
    
    [ATTACH]378884[/ATTACH]
    

    .........................

    And now for real without using HTML Code Tags! (Pray for me!)

    .. .jpeg

    I don't know why you are spending so much time posting images - they are not much use to anyone, and quite a number of contributors cannot see .png file when posted on this forum.

    Hi Pete,
    . Many thanks for your comments. I agree totally with your sentiment, and in fact just before I read your comments I had just posted words more or less exactly to the effect of what you are saying at Post # 22 here:
    http://www.excelforum.com/the-water-...-the-like.html
    …!!!!!
    .
    . If you have the time could I ask if you could help me to “put this one to bed” for me…
    ..Could you tell me exactly what you see in Posts #8 and Post #12 of this Thread . (And kindly tell me exactly which system (Browser) you are using).
    . In both Post #8 and Post #12 I have both a .jpeg and a .png. I can mostly see all of them. But I appreciate I am not using IE 11 and IE 12. So if you are using IE 11 or IE 12, and cannot see the two .pngs then that feedback will finally confirm all of what you and others have said and I can then forget the Theme for now!!

    Many Thanks.
    Alan

    . P.s.1. At the risk of trying your patience.. Could you tell me why you and others for Forum Images choose to use .png rather than .jpeg. –( Please forgive my ignorance – I am very new to computers !)

    . P.s.2. I use Images very little. I prefer a table which can be copied easily to a Spreadsheet, or attach a File. I simply wished to have the option there as it is occasionally useful as an addition to the other (Better) methods of passing information through a Thread.
