Hi guys,

I am trying to get an image to insert in my blog links using

http://www.travellerspoint.com/photos/305130/The_Longes..o_small.jpg

It keeps telling me the url is not right?

I have the large version working, but way too big, and cannot figure out why the small version is not working?

Where did you get that 305130 number from?
The small version of that image is:
http://www.travellerspoint.com/photos/93994/The_Longes..o_small.jpg

I usually take the number from the url

http://www.travellerspoint.com/photos/stream/size/XS/photoID/305130/

93994 is the large image, so it's still too big!

Where can I find the code for the small image?

Ah i see the end The_Longes..o_small.jpg is different

But the id is the same?

93994 is actually your userid.

The photo ID is indeed 305130.

The physical location of your photo doesn't ever include the photoID (although the URL pointing to it does - confused?) . Basically, all your photos are stored in a folder named after your userid, so http://www.travellerspoint.com/photos/93994/ is the folder where all your photos are kept.

The easiest way to find the direct link to your photo is to go to the page the one you want is on, then right click on the image and click on "View Image". That will open the image all by itself and the URL shown in your browser is the actual location of your photo.

Hope it helps.

I was confused. But after that it all makes sense.

I think what threw me off was that when doing the TP guide I always took the url id. So I presumed it was the same here. But it makes sense with the user ID

Either way, its working well now

Many thanks guys
