Why can't I post images anymore?
#1
Not really a problem with this site, but just wondering why I can't just copy a link and post an image.

Is it just in certain forums? The reason I ask, in the thread good clean Picts and jokes I can see pictures others post. In the VIP lounge I can only see links and no pictures.

It has to do with the results I get when I do an "image search".  It has nothing to do with this message board (I don't think).

I used to get an option to "view image" when I did an image search then I would just copy the URL.  Now I don't get that option when I do an image search, and whenever I do get a URL it does not post an image when I paste it in the "post an image" box here.

Maybe I have to use another source for my "image search"

Are you speaking of the pictures in your plywood art thread?

Could it be the source may have "protections" written into them, making them in-viewable for repost? You might want to ask 'Holic on that one. He helped me once, when having trouble posting images.

Recent change to google's image platform, Fred 

Try right clicking on the image you want and selecting 'open image in new tab' (in chrome).  Will be the same result as clicking the button previously.

A lot of this had to do with webmaster complaints that it creates a drain on bandwidth without any ad revenue.

Nothing to do with this board.

Can you post an image while using your phone? because I have more options available on my pc than I get on my phone on this site.

Sometimes you HAVE to go to the site where the image is to get a "clean" link.
