Images?

Sorry for a new thread, but I was not able (allowed?) to add comments to any of the existing threads. I pushed the buttons but nothing happened. Anyway, here's the deal. I've seen several comments that the original plan to only show "secondary images" to pro accounts has been reversed, and that now all accounts will be able to view all images. I guess that depends on your definition of "view". Currently I can only view thumbnails of ANY images -- I have no idea what you mean by "secondary" images. Even instructables I looked at two days ago now have no large (useful) images. What gives? It's bad enough that I no longer can save the PDFs, but this make the whole site worthless. I'm ready to drop my membership and stop being a fan on facebook, because as of yesterday your posts and emails are spam to me.

Profile Image

Maybe it's just me, but I'm noticing their is a LOT of people with no profile image. I would love to find and/or make a profile image for somebody who needs one or wants a different one. I'll go as far to design it from scratch, or you can just have me put your username on it, or if your lazy I can just find a really neat one on the internet for you. If you want me to design one for you but don't have specific specifications for how you want it, you can simply leave a comment telling me some of your interests, and I'll try to find one that will represent you well. If you don't want to leave a comment, feel free to PM me.

Question by leah.skelton    |  last reply


Image notes

I have found a little bug that is very frustrating to me. The issue is with trying to see the image notes from an instructable. I have noticed that when you hold your cursor over an image, a box comes up that has the name of the step that the picture is on. The problem is that this box covers up the image note that I’m trying to read. I have to move the cursor off of the picture and then hold the cursor on a part of the image that does not have any notes until the box shows up, then go to a image note to read.  Fixing this issue will be greatly appreciated.

Embedding Images?

Can anyone direct me to a resource on how I might be able to embed images in the text portion of an instructable instead of the standard way of just attaching them to a step by dragging amd dropping to the top of each step? I'd very interested in how the great mikeasaurus has been doing his Instructables recently. As an example check out this one https://www.instructables.com/id/Name-Puzzle/ That format just looks so much better for certain projects and if he can do it there must be a way.

profile images

(sunday june 13, 2010. 23:46 pst) just happened to notice that if you update your profile picture it removes all previous viewable pictures (shown as thumbnails under your main profile pic) and replaces it with the most current selected. not sure if this is intended. I kind of liked seeing older pictures, but can see how this way is cleaner too.

Image Problems

Hey everyone, I just joined today. I was working on my first instructable, I tried to uplad an animated gif I made showing what it does. Well the gif is bugging out, and I can't figure out how to delete it from my library. So two questions: 1. Can animated gif's be uploaded somehow that won't mess them up? 2. How can I delete things from my library? PS: Is this the right place to post this?

Image annotations running off of image, not displaying

Image annotations are being lost either by being below or beyond the edge if the image they relate to. This has only happened since the new image display system was implemented. The old image system allowed annotations to run below and of the side of an image, where as the new one crops the text to fit only over the image. The old image annotation system also wrapped the text after a number of characters, where as the new system allows text to run on indefinably  Users can manually insert line breaks in the annotations with the new system (not possible with the old system), however for old instructables this introduces the problem of annotations running off the image and being unreadable. This appears to be on every instructable, providing there are annotations on the images, and the annotations are long enough, or positioned such that they run past the edge, or bottom of the image. An example of this is: https://www.instructables.com/id/Cat-enclosure-with-high-cat-walktunnel-utilizes-/ On this instructable there are examples of both running of the edge of an image, and falling off the bottom. It also shows an exception to the problem, the first image allows the annotation to go beyond the boundary of the image, but all subsequent images have the issue.

Opera bug: image notes and multiple images

Hello, I am using the browser Opera 11.61. Since a few weeks, when i look at an ible, there are 2 things that are not working at all.  first of them, is the notes in the pictures, those yellow squares. none is showing even when i know they should be there. in the source code i can find it so they should be there. second is that i cant open multiple pictures in 1 step. i can click what i want on them but i just cant open them. both of these things work on chrome or internet explorer.  i dont know if this is fixable, but i really hope it is!

I'm not getting images in my Instructables newsletter emails. Almost all of them are broken except for the We're Hiring graphic. The links in the image placeholders work.

Images uploaded to where?

I just uploaded 200MB of images for a new instructable, and I can't find them in "my library" or anywhere else for that matter. I used the new uploader, and I'm in Firefox 3.0.6 using no funny plugins. (no dragdrop or anything.) I've waited several minutes, since I figured there might be a delay for thumbnail generation or something, but I just can't find the images anywhere. What am I doing wrong?

no images? is it just me?

I don't know if this is just me, but I have a lot of problems viewing instructables on my computer in Firefox 3. I don't remember when this started because I use my boyfriends computer a lot, and his has no trouble with it. Thumbnails, images in the instructables themselves, and background images don't show up. Some of the text of the site is white and i can't see it without the background images, unless I select it. (also there is no problem in IE) I have tried deleting the browser cache and I've looked through FAQs but haven't found anything which works.

Can't upload images

For some reason I can't upload images to an old instructable I've been working on. I can upload them to new instructables, but not an old saved one I'm trying to finish. Also when I scroll through the images in the library, where it displays "showing 10 - 20 of 100" the first number becomes negative? It will say "showing -10 to 20 of 100" or something like that ?

Images in Chrome & Safari

When clicking on the thumbnails below images on the first page of an instructable, nothing happens.  I recently sent my instructable to a friend who informed me that he couldn't bring up the images on my page (he uses Safari on Mac OS X).  I tested Safari and it is the thumbnail issue.  The same problem happens with Chrome (Mac OS X).  It would be really nice to get these bugs worked out because there is a lot of cool stuff on this site.   PS: This image issue does not happen on all instructables (don't know why).  It does on mine however and several others I have visited.

Dear Instructables Authors, Does anyone find the current trend of putting the title of an ible in the primary image as visually offending as I do? The format of the site puts the title right below the image in a concise and legible manner that doesn't interfere with the image of the project. Why clutter your image with unnecessary (often poorly chosen) typography? Please stop. Sincerely, Aesthetically Repulsed
