Posting Photos

Post by ralph » Sun Jun 03, 2018 4:04 am

One of the things that makes Facebook attractive to many, is the ease with which you can share photos, videos etc. When I first joined this site, I used Photobucket to post photos, but that became increasingly complicated as they started to try and increase their revenue stream, which while understandable, did put a lot of people off. I stopped using Photobucket, but my interest in posting photos was renewed when Sherrie mentioned Imgur.

I have decided to give it a try and post some photos I took last night of two of my four regular fox visitors. They are both vixens with hungry family's back at their dens. I have known both since they were cubs and they are now heading for their 5th year. Five years is considered 'old' for urban foxes, which usually succumb to illness or accident long before reaching that age. Despite suffering from a bad and mostly undeserved reputation, my visiting foxes are as well behaved as domestic dogs. They quietly arrive at the same time each night and sit in a row waiting for me to appear. Once fed, they leave as quietly as they came. Their ancestors and they have had this routine for the 40 years I have lived here and all just a few miles from central London. :D

Andy, that is the first time I have used them, and though having to copy and paste each photo one at a time, (as far as I can work out) is a little tedious, it is worth the effort. Champion seems to be the real expert in this field.

Andy, having brought up yopur photos on Imgur, you click on the image you want post and a number of options appears at the right hand side of the screen. One towards the bottom is marked 'Message boards etc' . Just click on the word 'copy' in its box, that is all, then go to your post in 'The Corner', select with the cursor where you want to place the photo, right click and select 'paste' from the drop-down box and the photo instantly appears. I hope this helps.

Lovely photos Ralph.
I've recently started using Imgur.
Took a little getting used to but it seems to do what it says on the tin!

Thanks for the photos compliment Jeff and like you. I have just got started with Imgur, no doubt it will get easier the more we use it.

Thanks Ralph.
Potteroo Palace is an animal sanctuary just off the A1 Princes Highway between Merimbula and Bega, NSW. Ideal for children to see the animals not in cages (the Dingoes were fenced in). Kangaroos to feed, Wombats to cuddle (well almost - they are quite chunky and solid) and seemingly hundreds of birds of all descriptions. Almost destroyed by a bush fire a few years back - fortunately it was brought under control just short of the boundary.

Greta shots Ralph ....easy to see why open top chicken runs aren't safe from foxes.

I take it you don't keep chickens?

Or do you because that awful looks like chicken you are feeding them. :lol:
Nappies & Politicians should be changed often. Both for the same reason.
I don't have an attitude I have a personality you can't handle.

Gnads, I have for the last 40 years been feeding 'my' foxes with 12-16 chicken thighs each day, the quantity depending on whether there are cubs about or not, Not too many people raise chickens close to the centre of London, though the foxes do sometimes take a wood pigeon that's slow in take-off. By far the biggest garden killers here are cats who are very skilled hunters of small birds and mammals.
