Not realy.... lol

What does this actually mean...
[im][/ im] tags should only be used for images hosted by accredited news websites.
What are those?

It looks to me, that "right click & save as" is the best bet, then just upload images from the member center.



Somehow or other, I thought that was the way it was supposed to work all along

CNN, FOX, Reuters, BBC, etc. Simple rule: If in doubt, don't hotlink to external sites. Upload the image to a file hosting site and then link to that file with the [ats][/ats] tags.


The original post in this thread has been updated. Please check it again.

But please be mindful of rights to use the image. If it's someone's artwork, photograph, or other unique work, please use the normal BBcode IMG tag and create a link to the image. We do not want to create the impression that we desire to side-step normal intellectual property considerations with this image policy.

Images that I've even taken myself are now linked and my posts look like crap.

Because they were written with the img tags, instead of the new im tags. Thats unfortunate. However, people can still see the pics by clicking on them, so at least nothing was lost.

Its a good comprimise between the past and the future and having images along with maintaining board performance

Quick question:

Can images from government websites use the ATS tag or do you need to use the IM tag?

Thanks for any reply.

EDIT: Oh, and what about thumbnail images from Google Images?

EDIT, AGAIN: I'd like to make another suggestion. Could you do either of the following for the IM tag?

1) Shorten the visible URL to just the root (like ATSNN original article links) and make it a hyperlink to the original image location like the IMG tag now does.... or

2) Just have the word "Source." under IM tagged images that operates as a hyperlink to the original location.


One problem we are going to run into is that the link can on occasion be very long. See this example. It is going to really mess with the WIDTH of threads.... always a pain.

ats (you have permission to use host)
imageshack, photobucket, ats mcenter

im
news

img
everything else and if you're not sure

So, to answer your question, your signature picture appears to be hosted on imageshack. So ats would be the right tag.

howdie doodie

I realise it has prob been a long day or night for everyone re: img changes
but I have a que

I have uploaded pics from net to my host because I couldnt find either the right size to upload to ats or there was no direct url for image. Hmm...so that means 2 pics I have which I am pretty sure are not media/blog/ebay bla bla bla...as I dont have permission but have used it as a way of getting around the 2 above reasons. Now, I need to either obtain permission (urgh one more time urgh!) from the sites I sourced or delete them and replace with link?

ok so how the lorry do I do that? I cant edit them now because the edit thingo has long gone... so 7 days respite/amnesty, fine I can live with that...but how am I supposed to edit them?

have I missed something here in all your fancy pc jargon?

ummm? I think that is exactly what I did with the the 2 images that I uploaded to the host.
BUT and there is a but, if the site doesnt provide a link to the image then shame on them... is National Geographic media enough? Intellectual Prop Rights then becomes issue for the host...that is great!! ats is absolved from any liablity..esp with the above statement...

oh darn it... how can I edit them???
yanno, one of the resp's was 'if in doubt don't and I honestly heard my Mum's voice cos that's what she says...

I agree that this destroys older posts/threads.

can I change some of my old pics from [/img] to [/ats]?

BTW, I dont use imageshack or any of the other ones you have stated, I use "myfilehut"...can you fix the myfilehut ones, like you did with the imageshack?

This displays the image inline, as well as indicates the source URL of the image. Use this tag for images from accredited news websites only as their sourcing rules generally allow this type of usage. Do not use tag for any other images.


The above is one of the most frequent hotlinking issue. {IM} tags are not intended for hotlinking images for convenience.
