Default Thumbnail pics v. full pics.....

You may not be aware but Registered Users cannot see the full pics from thumbnails (Subscribed Members can click on the thumbnail and see the full picture, providing they have the necessary software to do so). Might be an idea to expand the thumbnails into the body of the post This simple procedure could help to maximise your selling abilities

Once you have uploaded the thumbnails, edit the post and the thumbnails will be shown at the bottom of the page. Right click on a pic and select "Copy Image Location". Then go to the main body and select the 'postcard' icon (). CTRL +V the link into there and the pic will appear in the main body Repeat as necessary BTW the pics can be inserted into your post wherever the cursor lies.


An example of the difference between thumbnails and full pics can be seen here.....

Hope this may help you guys

HI Dragrad ,Tried to enlarge pics as outlined by you. However I have no option (using Windows XP SYSTEM) to select "Copy image location" only "copy image url" or "copy image" this just results in a link being printed -any thoughts? Thanks in anticipation, RayDar

Yes indeed, add the thumbnail attachment to your post as already described. Then click on the thumbnail to make it open in its own window and click this picture again. That will expand it to full screen.

Now copy the url of this full frame image, then hit the back button until you are back to your original post.

Next, edit the post and type (IMG] followed by pasting the copied url, then [/IMG] at the end. Make sure you use a square bracket at the beginning '[' not a regular one as above, I had to here in order for you to see what I am typing.

Save the edited post and you'll have the picture embedded at full size

I followed the instructions and all it did was put a link in the edited post which went to a thumbnail size inmage
Need a more informative step by step, must have missed something.
Do you enlarge the picture your moving or click copy image to on the thumbnail?

I think the problem you're experiencing is having one too many http://

When copying the picture link in full it already includes http://



but there's already http:// in the insert image button



which will need removing prior to inserting the link.

However, and hopefully not to confuse, I find it much easier to right click on the picture when enlarged, copy it, then right click and paste it into the body of the post where required, works fine with both IE and Chrome - cannot comment for other browsers though.

Similarly the above will work with an android device using one of two methods.

Click and hold the image and copy the url to clipboard
Click edit post
Place the cursor where the picture is to be located
Click the picture icon remove the http:// and paste the url from the clipboard
Click save

or.......

Click and hold the thumbnail and copy the url to clipboard
Click edit post
Place the cursor where the picture is to be located
Paste the url from the clipboard with the image tag [img] at each end, remembering that the closing tag should have / in front of img
Click save
