Pictures in the Honeycomb?
« on: March 14, 2016, 05:41:55 PM »
How do I actually insert an image from a computer or Smartphone, here in such a topic and then publish. I know it would be certainly easy, but I have no idea how that works:/
Can someone help me?


Wie kann ich eigentlich ein Bild von meinem Computer oder Smartphone, hier in so einem Topic einfügen und dann veröffentlichen. Ich weiss, es währe sicher einfach, aber ich hab keinen Schimmer wie das funktioniert:/
Kann mir da jemand helfen?

As far as I know, there is no way to upload an image directly to the Honeycomb (maybe I'm wrong).  It is, however, possible to upload the image on an external site (I personally use imgur.com) and then embed the image in the thread.  Click the "Image" button over the editor and paste the direct link to the image.  If everything is all right, the image should show up in the message preview.

Hope this helps.

Yep, you have to use an external medium, like Chipster-roo already mentioned. imgur.com is one.

I e.g. use my dropbox public folder. I just place the picture I want to share in it, right click -> copy public link, and insert it here via an [IMG] tag. It's pretty simple, so you always have an overview, what you already shared etc. :)

Thank you too brighty:)

I have just some question about the avatar pic..
By my smartphone, with it, i make pictures of my drawings, i have a size of more then 1 MB.. And we must have a max. size of just 35 kB. When i want a picture to submit of a avatar, i becomes 'Error' :/
Can i make my pictures deeper then 1MB? And how works that?

Or.. you can put a avatar picture with an URL code... Whats that?
Is this the same who i have put it with or from an online or externed site?
The other two (Acacia and Hawkbit) have a picture of my drawings on his avatars. Have they the pics put it with this URL? Or with that other thing?

You have two choices.  The first one is to shrink your image to a size smaller than 35 kB, but there would be a massive loss of quality, so I wouldn't recommend it.

The second way is what Acacia and Hawkbit have done: upload the image to an external site and use the URL code.

To get the image's URL code, once it has been uploaded, right-click it.  Depending on what browser you use, there should be an option "view image", "open image" or something like that.  Select this option, and the image's URL code should be visible at the top of the window.
