Re: Posting content format and Fair Use copyright Law

Okay, I'm back.  I see that you aren't here right now so I'll just start the discussion for you you to pick up on when you get back.

As you know, some small smiley images are available just by pressing a button on the menu just above the text area for a post or a reply to a post (there are also lots of other cool tools in the posting menu but I am just discussing images today).

These are the ones you never size which are easy and quick to add  to posts anywhere in the text:

 :) ;) :D ;D >:( :( :o 8) ??? ::) :P :-[ :-X :-\ :-* :'(

Now, when you want to post an image like a jpg or a gif or a png (etc.) that you have uploaded to the gallery OR you have the full address of from somewhere else, the situation is different.

For example, below is the address to one of my kitty images:


As you can see by the path of the address, it is an http (hypertext marking internet protocol address) image in the renewable revolution forum. It is located in the gallery and has an image number of 250817124114. It was uploaded as a png (Portable Network Graphics) type of image.

However, you do not see the image here.

In order to see the image, you need to format it properly. I will now show you the simple format to use, with a space between each character, so it will be be displayed here (when you use this format, do not put any spaces between the characters or it will not work).

[ i m g ] http://renewablerevolution.createaforum.com/gallery/renewablerevolution/3-250817124114.png [ / i m g ]

NOW, I will repeat the above without the spaces:

Is all that clear as mud?  :D

Now let us go to one of your recent posts and modify the image properly. But before we do that, there is a trick I took a while to learn in the gallery that I will pass on to you.

You see, the gallery does NOT give the right image address right after you upload an image to it.

Yeah, it gives a link, but not the one you want.  ;)

To show you what I mean, I will go to the gallery and grab an image by copying the link address (see below).


That's basically useless. Yes, you can "attach" the image to post, as you have done, but it doesn't look as good.

So here is what you do:

1. Right Click on the image and select "open link in new tab".
The address in the new tab is not what you are looking for:

2. Go to the new tab and Right Click on the image and select "open  link in new tab".

3. The second tab has the address you are looking for.


NOW you can post that image by putting (without the spaces):
 [ i m g ] http://renewablerevolution.createaforum.com/gallery/renewablerevolution/3-071117175342.jpeg [ / i m g ]

Here is the image:

It's too big so I have to size it down somewhat. I do that by putting a space after the "g" in "img" on the left side and assigning it a width in pixels. In this case, I assign it a "width=640".

I can make it as small as I want. Here is the image with a width=50.

You can now save the image address in a document for posting here or on the internet. If you post the address in Disqus, you do not have to format it but you cannot control the size. A brief description of the image in your document (e.g. Crime does not pay  calculator) will help you be able to find it quickly when your collection starts building up.

What you did with the Trump baby image, using the "attach" feature, has this address in the link:


I looked up that picture and found the address on the internet (see below):


I will now format the above with [ i m g ] http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-9XFIvswc62s/Vqg2umdA5YI/AAAAAAAAAno/yUTmXzcpJRk/s1600/CJgxC5wUAAED55j%2B%25281%2529.jpg [ / i m g ]

Now I'm going to size it down to img width=200.

Now I am going to center the downsized picture:

I size the images I want to use to cover the whole screen at img width=800. However I have several images at img width=640. The smileys are usually either without sizing or img width between 80 and 20, depending on how much impact I want them to have.

Returning to the galllery in this forum, always remember when you want to grab one of those images to do the "right click, open in new tab" twice" to get the address on the second tab of the image for posting and resizing.

I am ready for questions.
