June challenge - Transport


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

We all need it and we all use it and I expect most have images of it in their portfolio. Interpret how you like - from riding camels to jet planes. Modern or vintage. Civilian or military. Passengers or freight. If it transports it qualifies. You have until the last day of June to show us your great images. Please give some basic info. What is it? Where is it? Good luck! PS no idea how to insert an image using a phone!

When you get 946 hits on "transport" it's time to specialise.

So.......

Tram in original Tramlink livery in the notorious Sandilands cutting where seven passengers lost their lives when a tram fell onto its side after failing to slow for the curve. (Taken and licensed many years prior to the crash.)

I know something was posted about this a while ago but I can't seem to find it. It appears that you can no longer drag and drop an image into a forum post, and pasting the URL into the box doesn't work either. So how the hell do you now add images to this thread?

I use Firefox. Drag and drop works there but only between FF pages. Not onto Safari pages.

Go to your image, enlarge it and drag into the search bar. Copy what appears there and then go to the Forum (easier on a new tab) and "Insert image from URL".

Or from MI, right click on the big thumbnail, select "Copy image link" and paste directly into your post. That doesn't get you the full-sized image- I get that by dragging and dropping from a separate window, but I have twin monitors which makes that easy.

Thanks Paulette, that seems to work. I didn't realise you could drag an image into the search bar. You learn something new every day!

I should give Jill credit for this method. I didn't know either.
