Inserting an image

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

1) inserting an image always puts it up at the top of a post. it should insert whereever the cursor currently is.

2) it would be cool if we had an option to paste an image in addition to uploading or linking

I am testing Rusty's premise:

 

 

The photo went where the cursor was...

You can paste and image.  I just copied nolo's picture using CTRL+INSERT.  and

 

 

 

really easy.  Did you ever see what you can do if you right click the image and change the image properties?

I assume that you're using IE?  Maintaining the cursor position for image insertion in IE is impossible, but works fine in other browsers.  After it is inserted, you can easily click and drag it to the appropriate position in IE.

Yes I'm using IE. It's funny how inserting pics into position was possible under the VB Epic. Clicking and dragging is not very easy using the inline editor. I've found that I need to cut and paste. It's still awkward. My suggestion is to paste at the end when under IE if you can.

Jeez! It takes someone else asking the same question AGAIN for me to get the answer! 
 

 

I've complained about the same thing but all I got was the standard "go to the wiki"!!! Needless to say, the wiki didn't bother to mention the issue with IE. What does the team expect the most popular browsers are??? 

 

Should I stay or should I go?

This just in from the Dev Team:

 

We fixed a few bugs with IE so that images now embed more consistently, i.e. they embed where your cursor is, rather than at the top left.

 

Care to test this for us, AT?

I'll give it a shot (Internet Explorer 7):

 

(from the first Big Sky ESA)

 

And it worked! Image came up right where my cursor was. Awesome!

 

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

 

Best regards,

And clicking on the image opens up a new (!) window with the full-size image--just as advertised.

 

Superb. Stupendous. Hyperbolic!

 

(Sorry, Nolo!)  

 

Best regards,

Bob

While it's nice to see the Full Sized Image in a new window - the bottom scroll bar (horizontal) is missing from large images until I scroll all the way to the bottom using the browser's vertical scroll bar.  (Firefox)

 

Kind of  a nuisance when trying to view the width of Bob's image above as to see people to the right I must first scroll to the very bottom, then use the scroll bar there to move right a bit (guesswork adjustment), then scroll back upward to see what came up in the image, then scroll back down again to scroll a little more right, then back up again to see where I got to ...... etc, etc, etc.

 

Can it be made to work the same way as when viewing over-sized images on most other sites across the internet (horizontal scroll bar visible at the bottom of the browser right from the get-go)?

Good idea, MichaelA!

 

And, as I've suggested somewhere else recently, is it possible to access a page with all of the images currently uploaded to EpicSki? I've tried deleting parts of the url for my image above (ie. http://icechewing.huddler.com/imgrepo/), but receive the message, "http 403 forbidden...the website declined to show you this page...) It would be great to see a clickable thumbnail index of all current images--especially when trying to link to one you, or someone else, has previously uploaded, but you can't remember its name.

 

Best regards,

Bob

That image page has a lot of additional information and useful links.  Using the image above as an example, you can scroll down to the 'Original URL' link and click that to allow your browser to do the sizing and provide scoll bars if you'd prefer viewing it that way.

 

If you'd like to find all the images you've uploaded, you can use the Advanced Search feature.  If you put in your own username for 'Threads Started By', it will actually return 'all content created by.'  Then just look at the images tab.

 

For example, here are Bob's images.

 

This is a great opportunity to suggest that you name your image files something useful.  So instead of naming the above photo 'P1180001.JPG', try something like 'Big_Sky_ESA.jpg'.  That way you can just put 'Big Sky' into the search and it will find the image for you.
