Hi again Murf!

Maybe try this one [ http://picasaweb.google.com/ ]. No first hand experience here, sorry.

B.T.W. Thanks for your latest PM story to me. I\'ll sure be a busy literary agent. I sent you a PM too - hope you received it. Best wishes for your oncologist trip!

You just can\'t enlarge the photo when you click on it. There\'s no \"thumbnail\" Option that I can find.

thanks for the new picture viewer but it was my darn ISP not photo bucket. Thanks for the thoughts of my upcoming doctors as& chewing next week, but i HAVE  decided to let all of this go, turn it over to God and let the cards fall where they may. I will be damned if aI go on O2, I worked in the field to long and saw how quickly you became dependent on the stuff. Its worse than Vodka !  :)

I really hope you enjoy the stories for I am trying to write an article for a magazine now, if you really don\'t like them just let me know the truth, I am a big boy and my skin is thicker than that of  an bull elephant in heat.  :)

Here is the trick I learned by experimenting and looking at codes on the board by pressing \"Quote\".


A) When you\'re composing in \"Post...\", click on the icon for \"Insert Hyperlink\". Result:

Code: [Select]
[url][/url]
B) Your cursor will be in the middle of the two \"url\" tags. Immediately click on the icon for \"Insert Image\". Result:

Code: [Select]
[url][img][/img][/url]
C) The original big image should be added by copying & pasting the URL of the original big image in the following way (don\'t forget that \"=\"):

Code: [Select]
[url=http://lh3.ggpht.com/_EljRVVrtWkI/ShjfACdW8NI/AAAAAAAADT8/7i0GqbNpdVg/Cruise%20Eda%20Wed%20075.jpg][img][/img][/url]

D) Now the smaller image which will become clickable and linked to the original big image should be added by copying & pasting the URL of the smaller image in the following way (i.e. put the URL of the smaller image in between the two \"img\" tags):

Code: [Select]
[url=http://lh3.ggpht.com/_EljRVVrtWkI/ShjfACdW8NI/AAAAAAAADT8/7i0GqbNpdVg/Cruise%20Eda%20Wed%20075.jpg][img]http://lh3.ggpht.com/_EljRVVrtWkI/ShjfACdW8NI/AAAAAAAADT8/7i0GqbNpdVg/s128/Cruise%20Eda%20Wed%20075.jpg[/img][/url]
That\'s it! Finished! I\'ve done that below and it seems to work (but it seems that this particular original image file is really big, so therefore it will take a while to load).



Voila!

(Hmmm... I think PicasaWeb is playing games with me. Sometimes the original image comes through, sometimes not. When [ http://lh3.ggpht.com/_EljRVVrtWkI/ShjfACdW8NI/AAAAAAAADT8/7i0GqbNpdVg/Cruise%20Eda%20Wed%20075.jpg ] opens up in a separate window and fails to load, I then delete the JPG file part \"Cruise%20Eda%20Wed%20075.jpg\" just leaving [ http://lh3.ggpht.com/_EljRVVrtWkI/ShjfACdW8NI/AAAAAAAADT8/7i0GqbNpdVg/ ] then reloading the browser will start the photo loading up properly; but if I start off with [ http://lh3.ggpht.com/_EljRVVrtWkI/ShjfACdW8NI/AAAAAAAADT8/7i0GqbNpdVg/ ] to begin with, then PicasaWeb won\'t play ball... not sure what\'s going on with PicasaWeb. Oh well... the theory works as I\'ve used it on other posts [without using PicasaWeb]. Try it!)

When I click on the thumbnail picture I get only

Not Found
The requested URL /_EljRVVrtWkI/ShjfACdW8NI/AAAAAAAADT8/7i0GqbNpdVg/Cruise_Eda_Wed_075.jpg was not found on this server.

OK, let\'s forget that bad PicasaWeb example. To show you that the theory works, here is one using the method described above with some publicly available pictures on Flickr.com that I used on another LinPc post:



It\'s clickable and linked to a larger image. You can use the method on any images anywhere on the Web.

The small image was obtained here [ http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=%22club+morocco%22+subic&z=t ]. And the large image is here [ http://farm1.static.flickr.com/225/460785479_3733243efb.jpg?v=0 ]

Using the method above and putting the image URLs in the right place, gives you code for your post like this:

Code: [Select]
[url=http://farm1.static.flickr.com/225/460785479_3733243efb.jpg?v=0][img]http://farm1.static.flickr.com/225/460785479_3733243efb_t.jpg[/img][/url]

The clickable pic is the result above.

Questions?
