    OK, for many folks Flickr is the easiest…. but I should say,

    Posting from Flickr allows easy access to larger sizes…..

    When posting photos, if you are willing to give the technical data, i.e., exposure, camera, lens, etc. please do this below the image, or, allow Exif data to be seen on Flickr. Many folks on NRF have an interest in learning and the method used to obtain an image is helpful. Sometimes….LOL

    And to reiterate:

    Does anyone know how to post photos without going through Flickr? I don't own the photos, so Flickr is a no-go.

    Lots of stuff goes through Flickr and is not owned by the poster. As long as it is not identified as an original, I suspect this is not a problem. I usually identify these as "Guest Photo".
    And to reiterate:

    A link can be posted by various means.....the one I have found is easiest is Flickr...or at least for me....

    When a link is posted the image may not be shown, only the link. HTML code should show every time.

    So, for those looking for instructions:

    Copy the HTML embed code to your clipboard
    Paste code in your post on NRF

    If a post is made which doesn't work, use the edit function to have another go at pasting the info in the same post. Don't keep doing new posts. If it still doesn't work, leave the code and a moderator may investigate and correct the problem. If one of us does, we may message you to tell you where you went wrong.

    I put any photo I want to post in my public dropbox folder/ Copy public link
    Past the link in the reply/ highlight the link/ click Image icon
    If the image is too big, the forum seems to automatically resize it

    Sorry for getting back so late, but even if I'm sure I didn't take it- like Edward Steichen's photos?

    Not to try and hijack this thread, I'm just not sure about the legalities of Flickr.

    There are other photo sites which will work as well, what is needed is the HTML code for 640 pixel maximum size.

    Not sure why this is so confusing. If I am linking directly to an image on a website, how do I do it?

    One advantage of Flickr is the access to Exif data if allowed by the OP.

    So... I posted this in the other Flickr discussion thread, but is there another way of posting photos without going through Flickr?

    There may be other websites, e.g.,
    Cluster: Great for private group photo sharing. ...
    500px: Great for discovery. ...
    Shutterfly: Great for photo products. ...
    Google Photos: Great for auto-enhancement. ...
    Zenfolio: Great for professionals. ...
    Instagram: Great for social sharing....
    but what is necessary is a file which can be embedded so the image can be found on the original website. I believe this is where our website finds the actual image data. You can always try other sites if you can find an embed code and if it does not work, delete your post...

    @Ton14, posting here to keep the PAD thread relatively clean...

    The "Attach image/file" button in "Leave a Comment" doesn't really 'embed' an image; it just takes a link to an image posted elsewhere on the internet. In my case, the image is just on my personal server, which I think is in Dallas. I just paste the link to the image in the "Attach image/file" box that prompts for "Image URL". Here's the URL I posted:

    https://glenn.pulpitrock.net/Individual_Pictures/DSZ_0408-small.jpg

    Click on the above link, and you jump directly to the picture on my site.

    Not all images you see on the web are linkable like that; some album javascript downloads them with separate code. In Firefox, if you right-click on an image and select "View Image", if the image is posted with an image tag it'll display in your browser all by itself, and the URL in the box at the top can be copy-pasted into things like the "Attach image/file" box...
