Photos

I recently had a laminate photo collage placemat made. I want to add another photo. How can it be done? Should I laminate the new photo and glue it? What kind of glue? Can I glue the photo and re-laminate the whole thing again? Thanks

Oven blows up and no photos.

My wife was making potato wedges last night when in the middle of cooking the bottom burner catches fire and starts to sparkle like a party sparkler. I run for my camera and when I get back to the kitchen its over my wife turned off the stove and when I turned the stove back on nothing happens. Now that the fun part is over does anyone want me to do an Instructable on how to repair an oven element? The white marks are from the electrical fire.

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...

Photos in html

Hi! I recently posted my instructable: https://www.instructables.com/id/Custom-Stamp-With-Brass-Inlay/ it got put on the homepage and has tons of views but no likes, this may be because i made the 'ible quite long by adding photos directly into the html, making it harder to see the whole thing, should i remove the photos?

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! :)

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?

Photo Challenge: Take a Photo Everyday in January

---------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------- PLEASE READ THIS THREAD!!!! ---------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------- With the New Year comes New Year's Resolutions, and one of my on-going resolutions is to improve my photography skills.  I have a hunch I'm not the only one who wants to be a better photographer, so I would like to pose a challenge in which I will also participate. The Challenge: Take a photograph everyday in January. The Reward: Bragging rights and a fancy patch to show everyone that you successfully completed the challenge. Simple, right?  It doesn't have to be the best photo EVAR.  It doesn't have to be beautifully lit.  It doesn't need perfect composition.  It just has to be the very simple act of picking up your camera, taking a shot, and posting it online.  It can even be a photo you're going to use in an Instructable, a dual purpose photograph.  The trick is that it has to be done every day.  No old photos.  No rehashes.  This is for personal improvement and making photography a habit. Now I realize that not everyone will be able or willing to do this everyday because stuff happens.  If you can take a photo for 20 days in January, you will get a patch.  If you can manage to take a new photo every single day, all 31, in January, you will get a very special patch! If you would like to participate in this challenge, leave a reply to this topic saying that you accept the challenge.  As you submit your photos, reply to your original acceptance reply.  This will keep things a bit tidier, and you will be able to see your accomplishments altogether.  There's a great deal of satisfaction in seeing a big chunk of what you've done and feeling motivated to do more.  If you would like to see an example of how to submit photos for the challenge, please look for my acceptance comment on this topic and how I reply to that comment with photos I am submitting. Alternatively, you can submit links to images on your Flickr, Picasa, DeviantArt, and other image sharing services.  This will save on bandwidth usage on Instructables.  Please do not submit links to private accounts such as Facebook and Myspace.  The images must be publicly viewable without requiring a linked account. There are some mighty fine Instructables on photography, so you might want to take a look around.  Hopefully, by taking part in this challenge, you will not only improve your photography skills but your Instructables as well.  You might even be motivated to post an Instructable about photography in January! If you would like to participate in a much larger challenge, check out Project365. So here's to a Happy (and productive) New Year!

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.

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?

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: https://www.instructables.com/id/Ice-Cube-Clock-3/ 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!

Photo upload stalls

This has been going on for a while now, back to when the new photo uploader was still being called a beta feature.  Sometimes when a photo is being uploaded, it stalls at 100%.  It stays there indefinitely (I've let it sit for up to 5 hours), preventing all the other photos in the queue from uploading.  This is very annoying when you're trying to upload 100 photos and leave to do something else, only to find it's been stuck at photo #5 (for example) the whole time you were away!  The only way to make things proceed is to cancel the photo that has stalled, then re-upload it once the others have finished. I typically upload larger files in the 2-3MB range.  I'm using Firefox (latest version) in Mac OS X.  Last time I tried, it did the same thing in Safari. Please take a look at this issue; having to "babysit" my uploads is one of the worst parts of writing an Instructable because it's such a waste of time!

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.

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?

Photo hosting recommendations

I have a flickr account, which I use rarely, but it just got snotty at me for going over 200 images - they want me to pay to make them all visible. 200 images? Strikes me as a tad stingy. After all, my image library here has nearly 1300 shots in it. So, can anybody recommend a half-decent image-hosting site that will let you store a lot more images, for free, and is easy to use?
