    Hello,

    Is it possible to show pictures as thumbnails here? I would like to show small pictures, that are linked to bigger ones. This is quite usefull, as i have most of my pictures only in 150px x 113px (thumbnails) and in about 600px x 800px, which is by far too large to be posted directly to the forum.

    I can usethis method to show pictures in nearly any other forums. Here it seems to be impossible! Or am i just doing something wrong? It would be great, if someone could help me.

    Christian

    You ought to be able to. It's a little different than CPUK, but what I do is right click on your image and then click Properties. Then right click on the URL and click Copy. Click Okay. Then come to TF and click the Image tab and then right click in the box that appears, where it has http:// highlighted. Then paste and hit Okay. You can preview it to see if the image appears. If it does, you can post it. Let me know if my instructions are confusing and/or Email me the picture links.

    Hi,

    No, that's not the problem. I would like to have it the following way:



    but if you click on that small picture a new window should open showing the bigger one.

    I'll test my Photobucket thumbnails out to see if clicking the image on the forum will produce a new window. If it doesn't work, I think Ive reached the capacity of my current knowledge. In which case, there are a bazillion others here who can get you from point A to point B.

    I think you have to copy the thumbnail link, and make sure your have everything, thumbnail link leading to the larger original image. I've seen it done, but never tried it. Great idea though if you can figure it out!
