    LottoMike, did you hotlink the image from another site? Meaning did you direct link it from someone elses site? If you did, they have the ability to change the image to something crude.

      I read somewhere, that if you get the picture by right clicking and scrolling down to the properties and copying and paste the image url into the editor, it could get erased or changed by the host for that picture.

      In other words, some sites don't like people taking their picture via the properties because it takes away from their memory for lack of the right terminology. There's a word to replace "memory" but I don't remember what it is.

      I used to be on a site that I used for hosting videos and pics, but I had to pay for the "Blank". I can't remember what that blank was. It's driving me crazy. Can someone please tell me what that word is? Thanx...lol Bang Head

          I think they do know, and wanted to piss you off for drawing off their "Blank". I forget the computer word for it.

              Phew...

              It's funny because I was on the net looking at hosting sites and hoped to see the word. I did see it and by the time I came back to say I found the word, you beat me to the punch...lol

                I recall people advising someone to do just that when they learned that another person selling a similar item on eBay had used their own photograph of an item rather than taking the time and trouble to do their own photography.  Can you imagine what a surprise it would be to someone trying to sell something if the photograph of the object they are trying to sell turns into a crude photograph for the public to see?  The message is clear, "That will show you for stealing photo and my bandwidth!"  They wouldn't get many bids.

                  I may be wrong on this, but  Todd changed the way the editor works by not using the pics stored on your computer because people can't see the picture. The only way now is to either take the risk of the pic being erased or paying for hosting.

                  There are many pics in my older blogs that don't have the pictures anymore because the host found out and took them away...lol

                    If you need to find a place to host your picture, there are some free hosting websites you can use which is better then taking other people's bandwidth. You can upload pictures for free using ImageShack or Photobucket. Both are pretty good hosting sites.

                    At the moment, I am actually using Photobucket to host my avatar.

                          I've not changed anything about images, there is no way (and never has been a way) for someone to see an image on your computer.  It has to be uploaded somewhere.  How else would someone see it?  Would people have access to your computer over the Internet?  Again, this is nothing specific to Lottery Post, it's the same everywhere, and Lottery Post uses a more powerful text editor than most forum sites.  If you check the Help forum you will see a detailed post about posting images.

                            If you are insinuating that I have changed anything about your signature I have not.  I haven't even been on my computer since this morning.
