So do you link the image from Flickr?

No.  I save png versions on my computer and upload those to Flickr.  For the ones I want to post to the forums, I save a jpg version on my computer and upload that directly to the forum post.

I never thought about putting the Flickr link directly here.  So trying that out of curiosity -- linking a Flickr picture that I know is larger than the 4.88 mb limit.  Since it converts it to an embedded image, I'm curious if it will actually allow the post. 

ETA: I'll be damned - the linked picture is over 6 mb.  I'll have to start doing this in the future instead of creating a copy image in jpg format just for the forums.  Sometimes I am truly brain-dead.  I should have thought of that before.

Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous. It looks like an old Victorian peepshow postcard!

(But yeesh. Yoga much?????)

Haha! Thank you! That's pretty much what I was going for in that look. :)  And that was an animation, capturing that exact pose in it took a helluvalot of tries!

Yes - A total of 4.88 mb for all types of files you attach to a post:

Wait - if you insert an image or other "document" that is hosted at another location, then it is only a reference and shouldn't count for anything. Only uploaded attachment count against that, to my understanding. Unless these forums work differently from every single other I have ever used. ???

I have tried to link from Flickr, but I have never been successful; there is not "direct" link to those images. I save my snapshots to disk, do some post-processing then I upload them to CloudApp (getcloudapp.com) - it automatically saves a "direct link" to my clipboard, which I then paste into my forum posts (and the referenced image is then displayed, not actually uploaded to the forum) - then when I get around to it, I'll upload those to my Flickr separately. Once in a while, I'll do the Flickr first (reward for following me? LOL)

In case you didn't know - under Developer / Avatar / Animation Speed you can slow down the animations making it easier to capture a single portion of it.

You are correct - see my followup post.  Not sure why it never dawned on me before to just link to the picture.  The forum software embeds the image but file size restrictions no longer apply.

I did something similar when I was in college in RL.  Thank God no one had a camera.

Practice makes perfect.

Bringing love and warmth to cold, crusty, long-dead old stage theatre.

Old theatre at Lutz. And such amazing detail - look at the far right of the animation: you can see the shadows of the stage lights against the wall.

This whole series is great! Thanks for pointing out the shadows on the walls responding to your dance, just amazing! The first photo is one of my favs and the color palette between you and the theater is perfect!

You are very kind, that you. I think, for me, it's really a matter of experimenting a lot. Having flexible processing software genuinely helps in that regard.

I totally forgot about that slo0w-animations (I remember a Torley Linden video about it way back) - though I never could understand why anyone would want to do it (until now) as I wasn't doing a lot of snapshotting then. So out-of-sight, out-of-mind!

Yes, though the material is embedded, it's still referenced, so if the original ever goes offline (delete, for example) then that image or document in the post will turn into a "cracked icon". :D

Thank you! I was just exploring Luts and saw this great big building and didn't know what it was so I cammed inside. That's when the idea struck me and I thought it would make a great "mood contrast": Modern ballerina on a decrepit old stage in a "ghost theatre". I've done ballet (hardly professional) and I could';t decide how much detail to show when looking from the stage into the house (because it's amazing!) - and when on stage in bright lights you can barely see the house, so I decided I wanted to mimic that look. Then I thought "contrast" between new and old, why not go black and white to highlight that, too? :)
