Ok, I got one picture to post weeks ago... Now (by the same method) I just get an error message that says "it was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image. Please verify....." If it makes any difference, I'm working with an android.... HELP!

I've had the same issue as Chapin81. Everytime I try to post a photo it says I can't use an external link. I've tried it from my phone and from a computer. I've tried going to the postimage site and then copying the link. I've tried the Add image to post link below the message box. I even tried adding the images to my cattletoday gallery and then linking them. I was able to upload them to the gallery, but it still told me the links were external, even though they were linking to elsewhere on the cattletoday site. I am a fairly tech-savvy 30 year old, but I have no idea what I'm missing here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I'm a 73 year old so so savvy. When I came back on here & tried to post pictures, I could not do it. LOL I did figure out, pictures on my phone won't upload on my computer and visa versa.
I pretty much only visit this site on my computer. I email my phone picture to my computer, then upload a picture to Postimg.cc. Pick out picture, click SHARE, click the little icon on right of line for Hotlink for Forums. Paste inside the white box of this forum. You can click Preview or Full Editor to see that it was uploaded.

It could be because new members can't post links (we've had spam problems).. make a few more posts until your posts don't need admin approval and that resolve itself

Thank you, Nesikep. That makes sense. I just couldn't find anything anywhere to explain that. I appreciate the help.

I think your right because I tried to post when I first joined and zip. Now it seems to work.
