Nice! I'll try that later today from my MacBook. I have some half eaten salad pictures from Panera that I can't NOT post.

Well - no luck. I don't get "View Background Images" in the pop-up menu. I tried in Safari and Chrome. What browser are you using?

Sorry for the delayed reply! I just saw this. I'm using Firefox. I click on the picture that I want first and then Ctrl-click the larger slideshow pic that pops up. Then that gives me the pop-up menu with "View Background Image."

The size looks fine for me too, but if you want it to be smaller it is very easy in Imgur to select the "Large Thumbnail" rather than "Original Image" before using their BBCode. The only difference is they add a lower-case L to the name of the file on Imgur, so you can actually change it yourself too.

So, in your case it would be http://i.imgur.com/mC4wmUrl.jpg rather than http://i.imgur.com/mC4wmUr.jpg

Which would look like:

I upgraded to the Pro account for Imgur today to get a few more features (view more than 225 images, unused images not deleted, etc).



Now I have additional sizes too, but I think the Large Thumbnail is still just about right for trip reports.

Small Square: (90x90)


Big Square: (160x160)


Small Thumbnail: (longest side 160)


Medium Thumbnail: (longest side 320)


Large Thumbnail: (longest side 640)


Huge Thumbnail: (longest side 1024)


Original: (any size, but browser may resize within the forum)

I love those, Scott! I came here because I can't even remember where I have my pictures hosted from my last TR on TGM. It wasn't photobucket, so I have no idea. Maybe flickr? Hopefully I can get it figured out & do a new TR soon!

does anybody know how to change this?
If you saved the original TR in Word or other format, you should be able to right-click on the image and see where it was hosted. So if it's flickr it would be something like http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3698/********.jpg

I didn't! Well maybe I did, but I have no clue where now. I did transfer it to my blog & that has been no help. I probably uploaded them there from my computer! Oh well. I did find some of them on Flickr, but not all of them, and none on Photobucket. Who the hell knows what I did.

Not sure if this is new or just new to me, but I've just discovered the photo icon above the reply box. Very easy to add a picture from my phone. :)

My Imgur stuff isn't working ...losing my mind

I'd like to get this figured out before I leave! :) I have Imgur set on Large Thumbnail and am choosing the BB code. Not adding any extra or anything like that. (I read this whole thread - thanks, guys)

I've gotten it to work for one picture in a previous thread, but now some of my other pics aren't going. When I try to do it, I get this message: "error: invalid file"

I'm probably missing something obvious but since I know I've got Large Thumbnail and am choosing BB code on Imgur, I'm a little baffled. TIA!!
