Thanks Tom.

I think I will stick with that format in my report which is now w.i.p.

I sense that the learning curve is flattening slightly.  Are'n't you heading for the airport now?

~ Hi and thanks, @Galana

 

Yes. In 24 hours I'll be on my way out to the airport.

 

This is my ‘sweet day’, by which I mean a day without appointments in which to make final safari preparations at leisure.

 

It's grimly polluted where I live this morning, thus the thought of soon seeing blue skies in South Africa is enticing.

 

BTW: It took yours truly awhile to figure out how to post images in a trip report.

 

You're learning curve is far flatter than mine was. Your smaller-sized images are great!

Hi Team,

 

I'm having problems adding images to a thread.  I click on the "Image" icon above and the "Image Properties" dialog box appears.  I paste the image address from photos saved in my gallery but am unable to close the dialog box and have the image added to the thread.  In the "Image Properties" dialog box the "OK" and "Cancel" buttons are greyed out.  Any thoughts on what I'm doing wrong?

 

Thanks!

 

Paul

Paul I am no expert. Just read my 'tuition' from Xelas above. I think that certain formats won't upload here hence the greying out of the OK button. Just guessing.

However, as you can see xelas's tutorial got me on the right lines.

What I did was select the 'More reply options' button below and do the text and inserting photos that way..

Then preview to see if you like the result.

 

PS> Are you resizing your photos to <1000 pixels. wide? Just a thought.

@AndyH1000

 

This is how to show your photo posted on Flickr.

 

DISCLAIMER: It might not be according to SafariTalk or Flickr rules!

 

@Game Warden: please remove my post if it is again new posting rules (and let me know the reasons).

 

1. go to Flickr, find your photo, use Share and BBCode and copy the link

 

2. go to SafariTalk, open More Reply Options, open Image and past the link

 

3. delete parts of link so only this will remain: https://farm8.static...4e40e551a_o.jpg

 

Result:

 

10086395785_74e40e551a_o.jpg

 

 

P.S.: If using the complete link you can past it directly in the text; the name of the photo, the name of the author and the "Flickr" will be added automatically:

 

10086395785_74e40e551a_o.jpgD71_4663 by xelas5004, on Flickr

 

 

Minus of this method is that is quite time consuming. But there will not be added info on the side of the photo.

 

Positive aspect of using links from Flickr is that your photos will not be automatically resized if bigger than 1000 pix long edge (as it is in the case that you upload the photo directly from your hard disk).

 

Hope it helps, Alex

The disadvantage of doing the 2nd flickr route is that it opens ALL that persons photos on their flickr account. I don't care for that freedom.

Although andy's two leopards do look nice.

 

As high resolution is 'wasted' on a Computer screen I find taking pics direct from hard drive more convenient and you can edit the presentation to suit the text..

(Forgive the apprentice telling the master.  :rolleyes: )

@TonyQ

 

Thank You! I have really worked hard on this one, using Nikon 70-300 VR zoom on a tripod; IMO it shows that with perfect conditions and enough time and dedication, even a consumer lens can provide for an excellent IQ.

BTW that one was taken in Costa Rica.

 

@Galana

 

I concur with you; however many members (me included) post their photos first on web galleries like Google+ or Flickr. That is why I have given the way how to avoid extra info being added.

Also by going through the 3rd party web site, the exif info is lost. And I always find exif to be of great educational purpose.

Master! Please tell me what exif is?

 

BTW. I knew it was Costa Rica as that info is readily available using flicker hence my point about access security. Your whole albums are there for the looking.

@xelas I think I may have mentioned this earlier, if you’re posting a link from Flickr simply paste the Flickr links with your text into the reply box and click preview post, the photos will then appear in the reply box with the title/photographer e.g. "Reclining Buddha Wat Pho Bangkok by inyathi on Flickr" underneath, to get rid of this simply select the title and delete it, it’s much quicker and easier doing it this way.

 

Doing this doesn’t strictly comply with Flickr’s rules but the photo itself still acts as a link so anyone who clicks it will be taken to your photo stream. If you want to keep the Flickr title/potographer simply place the cursor between the photo and the title and press enter and the title will then appear under the photo and not alongside it. With this next photo I have not done this and this means that not only does the title appear alongside the photo and not underneath it which doesn't look good but the photo is also on the left whereas I have actually centered it using the 'center text' button as I like to do with all my photos.  

 

9452946722_f2312165aa_z.jpgReclining Buddha Wat Pho Bangkok by inyathi, on Flickr

 

This next photo is a panorama when I first clicked preview the Flickr title appeared beneath the photo in the reply box, however though it looks like the title is where you want it you still need to insert the cursor in front of the title and press enter, the title will appear to remain in the same place in the reply box but when you click preview it will now be underneath the photo and the photo will be centered as follows.

 

9452907342_5883d257c9_b.jpg

Dragons Wat Tha Ton Thailand by inyathi, on Flickr

 

Use the preview post button to experiment with how to do all of this, if the photos aren't positioned how you want them or the title isn't where you want it just go back and change it and click preview again, you don't even need post anything at the end of it you can just play around learning how to do it and then click cancel if you don't want to add your post. Then when you do want to post something you should know exactly how to do it.  

 

@Galana EXIF data is all of the shooting information recorded by the camera e.g. shutter speed, aperture, flash on or off, focal length etc, by looking at this information you can see what settings the photograher used and then try to improve your own photography based on what you've learnt. 

 

Surely any albums that you have on Flickr are there to be seen by anyone and any photos you don't want just anyone to see will be set to private, I'm not sure I understand why you wouldn't want people to be able to access your Flickr site from here, all of my photos/albums on Flickr are available for public view I simply don't upload photos I want to keep private.

@inyathi

 

I must have missed previous post with your explanation; thanks for the added bonus of how to put the extra data below the photo.

 

What was my original intention is to find a way to get rid of those data/links completely. Using only the "image" part of the link, and the Image icon on the More Reply Options, is the way to do it.

 

Personally I am switching to direct upload as this method assures me that there is no extra compression added to the photo if I keep the long edge at 1000 pix (or smaller). Plus there is intact exif, and I really appreciate all those posters that either leave it with their photos, or put the data as a caption. It is indeed a very educational tool.

 

As for my albums to be for everyone, they are "public" so if more will come to see them, I have no problems with that  :) !
