Hotlinking using Google's Picasa Web Albums.

Google's Picasa is a popular program for photo editing, made even better by the ease with which you can upload to their album space as it automatically re-sizes the photos before uploading. What isn't generally known however is the fact you can link the pics to forums like this one, even if Google make it an unofficial policy to do so.

 

How to do

 

Firstly, bring up the photo on your album page at the full size (i.e. not the thumbnail), and then copy the link location by right clicking the pic and selecting 'copy link', or similar.

Next paste it into the message body as per usual using the 'insert image' icon. Having done this now amend the URL as follows:

 

h*tp://lh4.google.com/your_name/R2e8RIZsr4I/AAAAAAAABZY/O7ZLdOyV_Vc/PB050534.JPG?imgmax=800

 

should be changed to...........

 

h*tp://lh4.google.com/your_name/R2e8RIZsr4I/AAAAAAAABZY/O7ZLdOyV_Vc/s800/PB050534.JPG

 

Notice I've deleted the '?imgmax=800' and added '/s800' to the URL. The s800 refers to the max. width in pixels which in this case is 800, though you can change it to suit, i.e. s320 for example if you want a smaller pic.

 

 

N.B

I've also had to alter the board code here to get a correct display for this topic, as normally you would have at both ends of the URL, along with http and not h*tp.

 

 

 

Confused? You will be.........

It it an unofficial thing that you can link ? At least when I log on there is a link provided for the pic - just for that purpose. I will try adding a random pic to see if it doesn't work - "out of the box" :P

Yes, there is no explanation from Google about how to do this, only how to link an album or use HTML for a web page. Photofucket is still the best for multiple photos, but you are stuck with a single size.

 

Yours obviously works...........

Actually what I meant to say was "Well done Laawman" - I enjoy to look at the pics - so any help to get people to post them is good :wacko:

Maybe a bit off topic but try flickr. It's very user friendly and also it gives you option as to which resolution you want to hotlink and it provides you with the links below for forum.

The main problem I found with Flickr is that they only give you a few sub-albums to arrange your photos in, which is a mite inconvenient when you have hundreds if not thousands hosted on their site.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
