Trying to link a small video into my signature line similar to hat tyrannt queen has done, and cannot seem to do it correctly......suggestions?

You'd need to convert the video into an animated .gif file, a moving image. If you PM me a link to the video, I can probably convert it for you :)

I know I am off topic but that is a great piece of animation and hilarious too where is it from?

I believe it is from the new Bayformers film (Transformers 4) where he depicted Psittacosaurus as a piscivore, for some reason...

Tyrannt Queen is quite correct The scene is the opening scene for the newest transformers film, and much to my surprise they used a psittacosaurus. Not so delighted about the whole fish thing, but still its a great scene. When I saw the movie and then noticed Tyrannat Queens signature with the transformers cartoon, I knew I wanted that for my signature. Patrx stepped in and converted it for me and did some quality editing and so forth to make it happen for me.......thanks TQ for the idea, and Patrx for all the tech know how and get er done help!!!!! :)) :)) :))

That was my favorite scene in the entire movie. though, there are other dinos, but they don't have as much detail put it to them as those little Psittacosaurs.

If I commission Brandem to make one, they will be the colors I have him base it on.

Doug. Maybe you can convince Safari to make one, since it appeared in a Blockbuster movie.
A true Dinosaur fan loves dinosaurs for what they are, not what he/she wants them to be.

That would be awesome!

Could I use Google photos?  You can get a "shareable link" for the photos.  Here is an image URL.

Is it showing up here?

I think you can only include photos if you have the url for the actual image, ending in "jpg" for example. If the image is embedded in a webpage it will not work.

Hi Dinotoyblog,

I'm trying to upload an image of one of my models to the classified forum.

I've installed Photobucket then copy/pasted the relevant URL in between the [IMG][IMG] as instructed.

When I re-open and look down the post I don't see the image on screen, just the URL text.

Have I missed something? (and I'm assuming that I have)

Best.
Paleozoo

All that's missing is the "/" right in front of the "img" in the ending tag. :)

I just wanted to add these steps here, for anyone else that may store thir photos with Google Photos. It is a great, free, huge place to store them, but they don't make it easy to post them.

And after spending a week fighting with it, I think I have the method down. It's a couple steps, but only requires two different copy-pastes... ::)

I think I am doing this post as much so that I remember how it works--until they chage again!

First, in Google Photos, make sure that the pictures you wish to share are in a Shared Album.
Click the picture that you wish to share (it should open big on the screen). In the upper right, click the share icon (that weird < icon)
A window will pop up--choose Get Link. Then COPY once the Link is created.

Now, paste that link in your browser bar (I tend to use a Private Browser window--makes sure I can see it). The page should look like a Google Photos window. Click on the picture to open it. When the image opens as a larger picture--right click and select Copy Image Address.

Now, in the forum, you can select the Insert Image icon, and paste the copied link in your post. It should work now!

I wish there was a way to upload pictures directly into your post from your phone. It would be so much easier than going through another website (which can be tricky on a handheld), and you'd never have to worry about the picture going defunct when the hosting website goes away. They would just be here, in the post, forever.
