you will have work it out yourself while I plead with the powers to be of the forum to allow jpg files to inserted from my computer. Sorry; but this is the ONLY forum that I join in with that doesn't allow jpg files. I often add the same type and photos to a couple of photo forums and sometimes to a 4x4 forum. And I don't really want to be putting other's photos into flickr even if they are hidden

End of rant; Sorry


*wave; back on topic
I have often said I personally don't like the actual sun in the photo; however when the sun is not big or part hiden it can work as long as it blends in with the rest of the image

I find this very acceptable ...... there are bright leading lines to the smallish sun so the photo is nicely balanced IMO


For me; the sun is just a bit too bright. I would have considered cloning some cloud over the blown out white hole as I have done in the past and no one complained about that

Ian just use Flickr to host the photo. If you do not want to have the photo seen on your Flickr set it private only you can view it the put the BB code in your post on here then it can seen in your post but viewed on Flickr.

I do include the sun in photos and try and avoid rules like that.

This is something you will need to take up with Ian Burley, however I'm not even sure that I understand the problem. JPEGS are of course easily used on the forum simply by uploading them into your free gallery and then linking from there into your post. I have only limited experience of other sites but one I used to frequent didn't have a gallery and I found it a real pain having to upload to Flickr then link from there. Another that I use occasionally has a gallery, but you can only upload one image at a time and that's also a pain, so I fail to see what is difficult about this site where you can upload in batches of five.

In this particular case, however, I believe you are talking about someone else's picture, judging by the link you have provided. If I understand correctly, you wanted to download that picture to your own computer then post it into this thread. Should you be doing that (assuming you don't have the owner's permission)? Surely the correct protocol, if you want to discuss the picture, is to link to the web page on which it is displayed? Which you have done.

Sorry if I am misunderstanding the issue. :)

Ian, easiest way is to upload your jpgs (500kb max) to your forum Gallery then link them directly into your thread.
It does take figuring, took me forever, but then I can be thick on occasion!
If you are an Optus customer then you can ring me for free and I'd be glad to walk you through it.
Just PM me and we can exchange #nos. if you like.

Sun shots are fun shots, Ian! :)

I quit flickr years ago when I discovered you can't delete your images.

Hi mark, I use Flickr, and others too, I can delete any image I put up there, but have to be careful as if they are backup images, they can get deleted from your computer also. The way round this is make a copy of the one you want to remove from Flickr the delete the original on Flickr.

Ps rename the copy before deleting the on on flickr

If you have your own web space you can upload images there and simply link to this forum.

(Many ISP's provide free space online.)

I believe you can also link to public folders in Drop Box, OneDrive and iCloud amongst others.

At least that way YOU are in control of YOUR images, and you don't have to worry that others (like Facebook) somehow acquire copyright by virtue of you having uploaded images to their service, and therefore, buy definition, accepted all of their terms and conditions that you didn't know about!

Oh, and by the way, I have no problems including the sun in my images when it is appropriate. *yes

Hi Dave, thanks for your comments on flickr. My experience was that the site would not allow me to remove / delete my images when I tried closing my account. This is also the case on some other photo hosting sites.

WHAT? thank you for that info
There still seems to be so many 'risks' with cloud storage

Cloud storage is a worry here because often there are no clouds to be seen in the sky :rolleyes:

Don't worry, we have more than enough so you can borrow some of ours! :D

I do worry about the effects of thunderstorms on cloud storage. :)
