2E7AH: dude, get over it. the forum resizes images automatically - why do you have to complain every time? go buy a real monitor if you can't handle big images...
Even if the image is displayed at a smaller size, it still is over 600 kilobytes that have to be downloaded. It is common courtesy to not waste your fellow netizens bandwidth. Throwing more hardware at a problem is a poor solution, even if you can afford it financially.

@2E7AH, why not use the board options to turn off images in posts?

all images are then replaced with clickable links.

I frequently use low bandwidth connections, old hardware, & mobile (cell) phones to access the internet, so I often can't successfully view something with large inline images. Here's how I just went about posting a large image on here:

CODE
[url="http://example.com/screengrab.png"][img]http://example.com/thumbnail.png[/img][/url]
[i]1152 x 840 (57.5K)[/i]

By putting the screengrab on the uploads forum I got a thumbnail automatically. I right-clicked the thumbnail & from its properties got the thumbnail url & target (screengrab) url. I used the insert image & insert link tools to make the clickable thumbnail, & also copied the target image details from the uploads post. Finally I edited the uploads post to include a link to the thread.

It sounds a bit of a faff, but was no more so than using an external file host or my own domain.

I put this up because I searched for a simple way of doing such a thing, without success. This was the most obvious place someone else might end up looking for the same info.

Having said all that, I get the impression this thread was split from a discussion in a screen-grab thread. In which case I have to accept that huge images in such threads became the norm quite a while ago. I don't like it, but being as I rarely am interested in those threads anyway, & am probably in a minority, I'm not complaining.

what can I say: deviantart and non-deviantart users think all forums are suitable for their artistic and non-artistic expressions: http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....st&p=707780

just want to keep awareness about this old problem as monitor resolutions are going up as always and some appropriate image size should be considered as allowed - not with JS resize to 640x480, but with preventing users from posting images that oversizes allowed size. Is that hard for php to check posted image size?

Any hacks applied to the forums must be maintained when updating the forum software. Which as far as I know is a massive pain in the behind. Not to mention that you then need to load enough of the image to parse such metadata, opening yourself for exploits.

I write most of my posts offline with the help of HA's BB code page, however I fail to find the correct pattern to insert an imageshack.us thumbnail image as a clickable picture - I must do something wrong.

Could someone please provide the complete BB code, if the URLs would beMany thanks in advance.

Clickable small_image, linked to big_image:

In your case:
CODE
[url=http://img820.imageshack.us/f/quicksearch.png][img]http://img820.imageshack.us/img820/9948/quicksearch.th.png[/img][/url]


Which looks like:


Imageshack also offers the premade code directly on its page ready for quick copy'n'paste.

Thank you very much, ojdo!

Considering how often pictures from imageshack.us are used: to add this pattern to HA's BB code page could encourage and remind more members to use thumbnailed images?
