Hiya all.

I'm new to this forum, and I have checked whether my question has already been asked, so I hope I didn't miss it.

I've been using my scrapbook and photo galleries for a while now, no problem at all. The issue I have is that I can't seem to link to the photos stored in the scrapbook to embed them within text on a post. I've been shown the necessary HTML and have been successful with other photos (eg Google images), but no joy with my own.

I've checked that I've allowed copying of the photos, and security level is public. Is there anything I'm doing wrong?

not quite sure what you mean so this might be way off.

let's navigate:
http://pics.livejournal.com/cornaidd/ ... Index Page of your pics.lj account.
http://pics.livejournal.com/cornaidd/gallery/000023ap ... Gallery Page for "Summer 2004 Cosmeston Banquet"
http://pics.livejournal.com/cornaidd/pic/0000r5qa/g2 ... Picture Page for Quintain (with gallery number. remove g2 and keep the / to see the picture page without gallery information.)
http://pics.livejournal.com/cornaidd/pic/0000r5qa ... direct link to Quintain photo.

the following code should display the full-size image and scale it to 100 pixels wide:
<img src="http://pics.livejournal.com/cornaidd/pic/0000r5qa" width="100" />
and looks like:


the following code should display a version of the image that has been scaled to 100 pixels wide and 100 pixels high:
<img src="http://pics.livejournal.com/cornaidd/pic/0000r5qa/s100x100" />
and looks like:


the following code should insert a direct link to the picture page:
<a href="http://pics.livejournal.com/cornaidd/pic/0000r5qa/">link</a>
and looks like:

Excellent tutorial. It should probably be reproduced on the info page for easy user reference.

though it should be advised that people use the 100x100 scale and not the scale image tag. The scale image tag does not actually scale the image file down, and so you are just loading the entire image and then scaling it down; which will make anyone viewing your page on dial-up cry. The provided 100x100 thumbnail is actually a thumbnail.

yep.

and the thumbnail provided via the second url is prettier than scaling down the fullsize image.

Aha! I was leaving the 'g2' on the end of the link, hence it didn't work.

Fantastic, thanks so much!

yer welcome. :)

having the trailing slash or the gallery data will make it return an html page. excluding the trailing slash will return the full image. adding a slash and then the thumbnail or scaling code will return the correspoding image. :D

Under the manage option for each picture, there's an option to post that picture to LJ. That inserts all the html you need into a new entry and you can edit it as necessary.
