    So - my son and his wife, who live in Vancouver, have YET to name my now 3-week-old granddaughter. I'm waiting until late Feb. to visit so I can enjoy my grandson's first birthday and meet his new baby sister - who i hope will have a name by then!

    in the meantime I'm practicing with my new nifty fifty among other things. C&C always welcome.

    How do I link to the album?

    OK, so the one I originally posted is on SmugMug where the huge watermark is probably a good idea.

    Anyway - I uploaded one without the huge watermark into the album I created here on reality check.

    I highlighted and copied the BB code and then attempted to paste it into the insert photo dialogue box - nada. So, what am I doing wrong? I also tried the url to no avail.

    i think there is something about making your album public and not private.

    Photo still not showing up

    [​IMG]

    OK - so here's the link. The album was and still is "public"

    It allowed me to post the URL but not the "bb" code - and the photo still isn't visible - at least to me in Safari.

    I removed the large photo and substituted a smaller version - with the exif data in the caption.

    Life is so complex.... definitely the Thrifty Fifty!

    Can you see the picture? I can't. Nor can I see the link which I COULD see in my preview. Totally frustrated.:pissed:

    What do you mean, "looks funny"? Specifically. I'm not seeing anything unusual.

    Yep - that's all it is.

    The angle is a bit off - about 45 degrees - but the goal was to blur the background as much as possible and focus on the eyes and nose.

    Thanks for the tips about posting the photo. I had copied the BB code but put it into the "image" thingy.
