Windows 7: Image insertion / resize???

05 Nov 2008   #1

Image insertion / resize???

I was just wondering how everyone else is getting the small image sizes when inserting them into posts? I've been doing it the same way I have done it on Vistax64 and it works, but I'm not getting the small size. What Am I missing?

Hello Smarty.

Are you linking through an image host first? I'm not. Could that be it?

hooray I found a genuine bug...

If it makes any difference, I'm not resizing images before uploading. Just snipping then uploading. It seems more likely to be on my end as I seem to be the only one inserting large images....

I will speak to Shawn later and find out how he is doing it, he has attached lots of images without any problem.

Hi John,

I just want to say that the new manage attachments is a lot better than over on the Vista forum, I find it a lot easier with the extra spaces. :)

Good for people like mean who are stuck when they want to upload more than 5 images

Hi Smarteyeball,

When I attach the pics, I upload as normal, but then use the paperclip to attach. The pics you just uploaded will be listed there. That doesn't insert the full URL, it just gives it a number inside the attach tags. They then auto resize.

SEB - take a look at - I edited your post, removed the URLs, and then used the paperclip icon to re-add the pics - and now they are showing thumbnails....
