Copy link to clipboard
Is there a way to share an image to forums using BB code at all?
I know you can share albums and images via the panels with either links directly to the gallery page etc but i cannot find a way to share individual images from either CC or LR Gallery like i would using say flickr or imagebb.
Copy link to clipboard
can you from the lightroom gallery pages?
i can share the link easily enough...
but how do i copy and paste that picture into a forum post? the only way i can see is by inserting it as an image on this particular forum but on other forums using the BB code etc, you cant do that...
if a forum won't allow a paste, you should check with that forums admin to see if it can be done, at all.
i dont think you understand what im saying, on flickr and imagebb etc you can get sharing code to share an individual image on a forum - you cant get that from what i can see from either CC or the LR gallery pages, you can share the image via a direct link or email it etc but there are no options to share the image via a forum.
i'll move your post where you can see if others have more to add.

can you explain to me your process of "copy and paste" please? like how are you pasting it into this reply box are you using the insert photo option above the text box or ?
using my mouse, i right click over the image> click copy.
in this forum, i right click in a message reply field> click paste.
the process is the same as copy/paste for text (except selecting is easier).
yeah when i try and do what you are saying you do - i get a message at the bottom of the text box saying "Image upload failed. Try uploading a different image or from some other source."
however, for most forums i wouldnt be able to do what your suggesting anyway.
As far as i can tell, CC nor LR Gallery will let me share the image in a way that flickr/imagebb etc will, which is annoying!
well, it's easy to have an image that's too large. that rose is over 2 mb, i think, and it's cropped
and images can be shared, but i avoid social media so i don't know if that works any differently than getting a link others have to click.
If you check out the screenshot i posted further down, that shows how imagebb offers you all the codes for posting to different forums or websites etc - it allows you to display the image on the forum without having to leave the page, CC/LR gallery only appears to let you link to the image so you have to click the link and navigate away from the page you are on, which is annoying.
it sounds like the the cc storage system doesn't meet your needs. it's designed to facilitate work on files with others and with yourself on other devices.

yeah its just frustrating
it's between frustrating and impossible when you're trying to make it do something it was not designed to do.
oh, i didn't mean that as a criticism. i find it difficult to understand too.
and i gave up trying to customize it to what i wanted it to do. now i just appreciate it does what it does seemlessly: eg, open a pic in lr mobile and it's available on all your cc apps on all your devices.
