    Cloud Formation

    This week, it is all about clouds in the sky. So get your head in the clouds and show us your best photo.

    Zz.

    Contest Rules:

    1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a gray area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

    2. Please resize your digital photo to no more than 800 x 600 or 600 x 800 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. You are also allowed to adjust the brightness and contrast of your picture but these should not dramatically alter the look of the picture. But other than those, any form of picture editing or modification is not allowed. This is a photo contest, not a picture editing/special effect contest. You may add a watermark or your name/nickname to the photo for identification purposes.

    3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack or photobucket. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how.

    4. Only ONE picture per member per contest. Once a picture is posted, it cannot be changed other than a total withdrawl by that member from that week's photo contest. Exceptions will be made for modification to comply with the rules, such as resizing.

    5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

    6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

    7. These pictures must be something that you took, not something taken off someone else's photo albums or taken by someone else. I have no way of checking if you did this, so we'll go by the honor system.

    8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

    9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread. Photos not meant for submission must not be posted in the contest thread. Posting of more than one photos by a member may result in an automatic disqualification from the week's contest.

    The link isn't working. I went directly to the site, but the photo was quite large. Could you resize it before posting again, please?

    Final day to submit your photo, or to correct your photo, for this contest.

    Zz.

    Sorry, I have been extremely busy at work. The photo appears ok to me, it's a bit big but it shows.

    Can you not see it at all?

    Not at all. You see it probably because it is in your cache.

    Note that the contest images have a size limit - if yours is too large, it won't be accepted.

    I hit the Quote button on the post with the missing image, as if I were going to post a reply, then copied the image URL:

    http://s7.postimg.org/tawm8bh2i/clouds.jpg [Broken]

    and pasted it into the address bar of a new browser window. The image-hosting server automatically redirects this to

    http://postimg.org/image/3s49vaxif/ [Broken]

    which is a page that contains the requested image plus several advertising links. Becaue this is actually a page, not an image, the forum software apparently rejects it as unsuitable for display within an tag.

    I think its because you selected the wrong link (don't select the links for forums but the direct link. Forum software apparently can't read the image when its combined with the url... instead:
    [img}http://s7.postimg.org/tawm8bh2i/clouds.jpg[/img} [Broken] [big pic. deleted] works perfectly.
    Also postimg.org has an option for automatically resizing the picture to required dimensions.

    i've decided i don't like postimg.org, tinypic.com seems better.

    (ps I couldn't edit my previous entry -- please delete it)
