I have even got to the stage where I disabled file attchments on the DPNow forum and may yet do that here.

Please use the gallery, sharing (BB) code generated by your third party photo sharing site, or your own web space using the url-based Insert Image button here.

Some of my gallery pictures have had well over 3,000 views.

I really need to update these but they do the job.

Thanks Ian, that's what I have been looking for, but for some reason kept missing on the Gallery page (I did say I was a stupid old man! )

I'll have another go this afternoon and maybe that will finally get me sorted

Re: Birds in Flight Bif EM-5 and EM-1

I upload all my images into this forum's gallery or DpNow's then I can copy and paste into other forums - just makes life easier. Although many images are on my Pbase site I don't upload to any other site from there, preferring to upload separately to Facebook etc.

Re: Birds in Flight Bif EM-5 and EM-1

this is why I'm getting frustrated, I've followed the instructions, uploaded an image to my gallery Early Days, it showed as having been uploaded, I saw it there, but when I went back to put it up here, the gallery is showing "no images in this gallery"

I'm convinced that Technology hates me at the minute (and I'm not really thick, I started using computers in 1959! )

Bummer - I'm giving up for the rest of the day and away over the week-end, (although I may check in now and then for a peep)

Re: Birds in Flight Bif EM-5 and EM-1

Brian you could do what I do : maybe clunky but I get to them.
Click "Gallery", middlish on the grey bar at the top of this page.
Then try clicking "my photos" on the second greyish bar from the top.
Its next to "my albums" and "my favourites" : ignore those.

Got your photos there now?

It sounds like Brian may have uploaded his pictures as an album, in which case they don't appear in the gallery (I think).

Brian, in theory creating albums is a neat way of storing images but in practice I find it less confusing to keep them all just in the Gallery.

I just keep them all in the main Gallery and happily ignore Albums.

Re: Birds in Flight Bif EM-5 and EM-1

Brian, I'm having trouble locating your pictures either in the general gallery or in an album. Are you certain that you completed the upload?

Re: Birds in Flight Bif EM-5 and EM-1

Thanks all, it told me it had John, as I say, I looked into my gallery once it told me it had finished and saw it displayed, that's what had me bamboozled.

I'm leaving it for now - its been one of those days, I'll have another go with a fresh mind next week

Re: Birds in Flight Bif EM-5 and EM-1

There are several stages - once the images are uploaded and you see them listed with thumbnails you need to complete the process by clicking a button at the bottom of the page called 'Process'. Otherwise the upload will be discarded.

Maybe that is the problem?

Re: Birds in Flight Bif EM-5 and EM-1

I hate to be beaten by a stupid computer and now have it in the gallery BUT it displays a nice little panel underneath that says something on the lines of - "Copy the code below to display original image in forum" but when I try to copy it I am unable too

I hate this system!

Here is the pic but its not come in with its EXIF intact as far as I can see



I got this one here by using the copy function on the image itself, not on the code box, which was inoperative

(its a pretty rubbish pic by the way - just something to try to crack the mysteries of posting here)

by jove, I've done it (no idea how though ) and I think it may have the EXIF viewable. A better shot from the Hide at HCT, shot using the 75-300 on the EM-1 as the Heron appeared into view in the window

Nope, I can't see the EXIF - oh bum!
