Would appreciate instructions on how to upload/add images to posts in the forums - directly in post vs. link, format and sizing, etc. Could find it in help section.

Thanks

Click on the "Insert Image" icon. It's the one that has a depiction of the Mona Lisa.

I saw the insert image icon, but only see txt for an /img file in the comments space.
Sorry, must be missing something??? What size, file type, (jpg or tiff). Any details would be appreciated.
Thanks

Your image has to exist on the internet somewhere. There are a number of image hosting sites that will host your images for free. Once your image is on the internet you simply paste it's address (URL) between the tags here on LuLa.

Not necessarily. Attach a file, as simple as that. That uploads it from your computer to LuLa directly.

Use the attach at the bottom of the dialog. I usually use .png to avoid JPEG artifacts.

I assume you could do sull-size TIFF (up to 4Mb) as well, but why would you do that? It takes longer to display, some people have problems seeing huge images on their devices, etc. Also, displaying full size files makes it more attractive for stealing (i.e., downloading and printing). For most practical purposes, a 75% jpeg, around 800-1000 pixels at the longer side, is quite sufficient.

One does not usually post TIFFs for the reason Slobodan noted, but here is a test with a 1.5 MB image. It is uncompressed TIFF in sRGB. On attempting to veiw the image, it is downloaded rather than displayed, so I would definitely not attach a TIFF.

As a further test, I have attached the file as .png

That's correct, and according to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C.org), images can be static bitmaps (e.g. PNGs, GIFs, JPEGs), single-page vector documents (single-page PDFs, XML files with an SVG root element), animated bitmaps (APNGs, animated GIFs), animated vector graphics (XML files with an SVG root element that use declarative SMIL animation), and so forth.

TIFFs are not considered to always be static bitmaps, and (depending on the browser) will be interpreted as files instead, for downloading instead of displaying. For some specific browsers on Windows, there is a plugin available that allows to display TIFFs, but in general TIFFs are not used for browser display.

Cheers,
Bart
