You must have the image stored somewhere, "photbucket", "image shack", etc. ]
Most of them are advs. filled and sometimes awfully acceptable, like image shack. Newertheless, I'll do such a procedure being the forum rule. Thank you

I realize that, a lot or most of the image storage sites have
to many advertisements, but that is how they get the money to
maintain the sites, ,...also please try to avoid cross posting, and
double posting, it causes confusion,

Recently, some one asked about How to make the thumbnail, using
"tinypic.com", rather then de-rail the topic, I am posting here:
I don't know, you would need to ask "tinypic" :
How to make a thmbnail on tinypic.com
===============================

So anyway, it can be done,
Code: Select all
[url=http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=vpl1za&s=9#.WgClNP9MHs0][img]http://i67.tinypic.com/24415xd.gif[/img][/url]

Personally, i use postimage.org service. https://postimages.org/ it allows, after uploading a screenshot, to select thumbnail for forums.

Imgur is pretty easy as well, just adding a lower case s to image name/number,
and it automatically makes one.
This "tinypic", it seems on must up load 2 images, they have a option to
resize the image, that includes a "thumbnail" size, 280x 150 (something like that), but then that is all that is displayed, even when "full view" is selected.
I had to upload another image, full size, then use the thumbnail, in the img and
the link to full size one is different.
Thanks for sharing on "postimages".
I use my server, and have a script that uses Image Magick, to resize and adds "tmb" to the name, so then all I need to do is add "tmb" to the name/number, and keep the url name as it is. Example:
Image
=================================
Code: Select all
[url=http://www.parrotsandopenbsd.org/images/guako-exmple.JPG][img]http://www.parrotsandopenbsd.org/images/guako-exmple.JPG-tmb.jpg [/img][/url]


======================
Code: Select all
for file in *JPG; do
    new_file=`echo $file | sed 's/.jpg$//'`
    convert -resize 25% $file $new_file-tmb.jpg
    #jpegoptim ... $new_file-tmb.jpg
mv *.JPG-tmb.jpg tmb


done

Can be modified easily to include .png, .gif , etc.
