    My title says it all.

    I'm using Smugmug and wanting to put a RR together on my latest ride. I can only put up 3 photo's, then I can't continue. What gives? Is it me :cry

    No idea Chris but I've found it easiest to write the entire report/post in the links into a word document and then copy/paste the whole lot into the forum. Saves me from timing out, etc.

    Use the image address and the insert image tab not the insert link tab.

    Press quote on this post to see what the pic link should look like.

    Or your internet connection may be timing out.

    Yes Chris, I concur, posting photos here is a real pain in the ass.
    I even opened a trial smug mug account & it still would not post the image from there.
    being a pensioner tight ass, I can not afford the $40 for a smug mug account since there are other free sites available.
    They should give us another easy way to post photos, not tie us to smug mug only.
    my 2 cents worth

    You are not tied to smugmug there are many other places to host your pics for free.
    Picassa, facebook ,photobucket etc.

    With almost 200 000 members and no advertising or subscription fees do you honestly expect baldy to also provide storage for all the pics that are on ADV?

    Posting pics is piss easy, you get the image address click on the icon paste the address and press OK then submit.

    F.F.S folks we get this site for free stop bitching.

    Maybe I`m just a dumb fuck, but every time I`ve tried to post a pic, it`s too big or something else is wrong with it, so I`ve just given up. I`ve got no effing patience to stuff around with things that don`t work the first or second time.

    Hundres of thousands of inmates have worked it out so it can't be hard.
    If the problem was size it was probably when you were trying to attach pics, attaching pictures has been disabled.
    Now the only way is to link pics.

    If I get time later I'll try and do a quick how to for mac users I'm sure someone will be able to translate for PC users.
