In case anyone else has issues with inserting photo links into Hotmail...note that simply copying and pasting links as per the instructions above doesn't appear to work. You need to use the \"Insert hyperlink\" button in the messgae toolbar to paste an active link into a Hotmail message (after following the instructions above).

The 2013 Gallery is now a lot simpler below you will see x3 screenshots which are hopefully self-explanatory?!

1. You go to the Folder you want to put your pictures in.....

2. You add your photos....

3. You have now added your pic, simply copy the link into your e-mail to send it to the club....

FINALLY uploaded my first ever picture, so thanks so much for that HALLELUJAH!! At last able to do trip reports and not be ranted at for failing to use impossible technology, thanks so much!

But this isnt' quite that simple.

If you "copy image address' off the thumbnail, you just get the thumbnail, no webpage, like this: gallery3.lscmembers.co.uk/var/thumbs/Sec..._42.png?m=1360487862

Alternatively, if you click "copy link" from the thumbnail you get this: gallery3.lscmembers.co.uk/Secret-Spots/S...13-02-02-at-10_17_42 which works fine for me, not sure whether you have to be signed in or not to be able to see it.
Otherwise, I guess you have to open the page for the image and either copy the url from out of your browser, gallery3.lscmembers.co.uk/Secret-Spots/S...13-02-02-at-10_17_42

or else do "copy image address" which again just gets you the image again, gallery3.lscmembers.co.uk/var/resizes/Se..._42.png?m=1360487865

glad it's getting there though, good work.

William,

Thanks for pointing the issue out, we will look more into it and see what's going on. As you're the first to post a pic on the new system, it's useful for us to know these things - stay tuned.

As to being ranted at?! - you never were, there's a criteria you simply have to meet it, people have tried to abuse it, so we have tried to tweak it so they can't. Sometimes people don't understand the workload at this end and the only way we can deal with things is to make them as simple as possible for us - which might mean you have to do something too! ;)

Will re-post any updates on gallery pics here soon.

-Ben

William,

Right have looked at this issue at least three times, I think it is you, or you are trying to do this on a mobile phone which has interoperability issues, and is not designed to do the things you are trying to do.

I can't replicate the errors you seem to be producing, and the fact that at least x3 other people have sent e-mails to the club without the issues, leads me to suppose the issues you are experiencing is an error at your end. Also the fact that you don't have a lot of experience doing the process adds to my supposition.

I think you need to raise a help ticket and send it to Richard W. as per the Welcome e-mail: bit.ly/XCz8nS

This might also help: bit.ly/13oqlGV - although it is the old system, and the process above describes the new process better.

Hope that helps.

Hi Bill,

Just to clarify the differences in the link targets you see, please make sure that you select the URL shown on the right of the image (under the heading "Share", where it says "Copy Link:"). This will make sure that you get the link for the correctly sized, publicly visible image.

If you use a context menu / right click method from the image itself (e.g Copy Link Address, Copy Image URL, or anything other similar options) you will get the link for the thumbnail itself, it won't be opened from the correct folder, and may not be visible to someone who's not logged in.

Any more problems, please let me know.

Rich
