Photos "by reference" ?

Is there a way to put a photo in a forum topic (or instructable, but mostly for forums) by including only a link to the location of that photo elsewhere on the net (this is how videos work)? When posting "look at this neat instructable-like things I found elsewhere" type entries, it's a pain to have to download the photo and re-upload it to instructables, not to mention the vaguely uncomfortable feeling I get WRT intellectual property issues...

Photo Arrangement

HI again.  You know, the new instructables page layout is really nice, no complaints.  But I really liked one aspect of the previous setup, specifically the photo arrangement.  I liked being able to place a photo anywhere in the I'ble that I wanted.  It allowed you to visually represent a specific thought without having to say "see picture 4", and then the reader has to scroll up and find the picture, possibly losing the context of what was being explained.  Is there a way to compromise what we have now with what we had then?   Any thoughts from other members?

Homepage photos

What's happened to the giant authors photos that used to appear on the homepage? Last time I saw them was a couple of days ago. What I see now is a big gray rectangle with a smaller contest banner in it (it changes everytime I refresh the page). Is this normal? If this is the way it should be, I apologize for posting this in the "Bugs" section! ps: I preferred the homepage with the moving photos! :)

posting photos - how to get the nice pop-up?

Hello, I was wondering if there is a way to make body photo "pop out" like the main photos of a step.  Some of my image details could be better viewed using the pop-up, so I put them in the beginning section.  But the photos would fit better embedded in the flow of the instructions.  But images in embedded in the body don't have the pop-up function...they are the size they show up as on the page. Here's an example of what I mean: Just wondering about this. Thanks!

Question about viewing Instructables

How can I consistently view full sized pics? The first time I viewed an instructable each step opened up with a fullsized pic. However since I signed up I get no pics or a tiny pic only slightly larger than the heading pics. Sorry but my eyesight isn't the best and I can't figure out half of what is going on in the pics. Mostly I consider them useless. Sort of why bother putting pics up if all I can see is the tiny icon photos. I changed my setting to open all the steps on one page. However, I get either the steps with pics just a tiny bit bigger than the previews or no pics. I know bigger pics are available because I see larger pics in the right hand previews. Thanks

Problem with adding photos

This is concerning the box "Click to ad Images". ONce images are added you can not add more until all the current photos are used or deleted. Makes it a hassle to add photos. I must use up all the previously added photos, Then I can add more. I have to go back and remove extra photos that I did not want to use but had to so I could add additional photos.

annotating photos in instructibles

The weird thing is that I should be ANSWERING this question instead of asking it. In my first Instructible I was able to add notes to the photos that would appear as square outlines until one hovered over the square, then my note would appear.  Just like in the first photo in Step 5 here: Now, doing my second I'ble, I can't manage to get this done.  So I bring up the photo and click on "edit", then on "add a note".  The text box comes up and I can enter text, but if I try to drag it to some location in the photo it won't go to anywhere outside of the upper left quadrant of the photo.  And once I leave the photo the note disappears, even though I clicked "save".  I'm using Firefox browser.   I tried Chrome as an alternate and I couldn't even enter text in the box.  Haalp!

Larger Photos in PDFs

I am a long-time free Instructables member and a brand new Pro member. Now that you have subscription memberships, would it be possible to offer in the PDF downloads a third image size choice (currently standard and small) of LARGE for those of us who would benefit from larger photos? That would be a fantasticly awesome feature that could be a Pro-only benefit. What do you think?

Can't Upload Photos

I'm brand new to Instructables and can't even get a small icon photo to upload. The new uploader won't even respond at all and the old uploader will let me select photos but stalls instantly when I try to upload them. It will grind away indefinitely with no results. I even let it go for several hours on a small photo icon I use regularly with no results. For what it's worth I use Safari on a Mac runing OSX 10.5.8 Thanks, Hope someone can get me running on this. I tried the FAQ and found nothing relevant. Most of what I did find was 2007 & 2008

Picasa Photos not showing Answered

I have a Samsung Galaxy SIII. I have some really special photos that I uploaded to Picasa. The problem is every time I go to my photo album and select the photo it says "Unable to load photo" or video, or whatever it is. I try going to my Picasa app to re-upload the photos, and every time it says something like "Unable to upload photo." I have tried this several times. It won't let me access the photo or do anything with them, such as e-mail them, text them. etc. I am afraid my photos are lost forever. Is this common? What am I doing wrong? Is there a solution?
