"It was not possible to determine dimensions of the image"?

Post by bazza4338 »

I have received numerous "It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image" message this morning whilst trying to upload to both "Funny Photographs" and to this message, despite all images being below the threshhold of 800 x 600 pixels.

I also reduced the size of some images further but received the same message.

On all threads I am trying to post an image to and from all size downloaded to to imgur
Ditto, I could not edit any posts containing images because of that message.

OK ... no idea why they did it, but IMGUR recently seems to have coded all their links as follows -

https://i.imgur.com/bkP7o0V.jpg?1

i.e. with the SECURE SITE "https" prefix.

Board software for some reason is not accepting https images.
Dead Simple fix, simply delete the last "s" on new images being posted before hitting SUBMIT - i.e.
https://i.imgur.com/bkP7o0V.jpg?1

And VOILA - images post fine.

Just tried this one and it worked perfectly as all can see -
Image
OLDER images already loaded with "https" prefixes are showing fine - we just need to do this short term fix for NEW images being loaded anywhere, until I get techies to figger out why "https" prefixes are causing an issue. :mrgreen:

Going forward, whether they are loaded here within threads as http or https is irrelevant - both will show fine forever I imagine. :idea:

I am having the same exact problem trying to post photos stored on Smugmug.

Removing the s in https still causes the same problem.

Picture posting dilema

Post by wattsup »

I keep getting this message when I try to add a IMGUR picture to a stampboard post.

"It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image."

I have tried all sorts of combinations - including using old images that had already been posted.

Probably something stupid I'm doing but have been posting pictures for a while now and not had this issue.

There have been a few posts about this.

Remove the "s" from "https" when you post the link.

Should work then.

Edit: I see this has now been attached to a thread on this very issue :D

We don't know why this has happened but Imgur now have https in their links instead of http.

You need to delete the 's' in https each time before you submit. It is not known if this is a permanent arrangement.

unable to post imgur scans

Hi,

I am unable to post imgur scans, including scans previously posted here, on the board.

The following message is received when using the preview option: "It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image."

Anyone else has this problem, and what is the solution?

Cheers,

As Margo has updated the IMGUR tutorial to the method suggested by Traralgon3844, I would use that method rather that delete the "s" from https which also does work.

Hi Dennis,

Try doing this:

Copy and paste the image code into your post. It might look something like this:

https://i.imgur.com/bkP7o0V.jpg?1

Now, please delete the "s" from https. It should look like this:

http://i.imgur.com/bkP7o0V.jpg?1

You can practice posting images here:

I hope that this helps. :)

Brad ... we GREATLY prefer folks simply use Margo's very simple and easy method. Just manually delete the "s" from "https".

THEN all our IMGUR links look the same.

So when we go to swap them all over, we are hunting exclusively for

https://i.imgur.com/G2rpSSn.jpg

and the extension "G2rpSSn" using "BBCode" link option is then all we need to swap over.

See how HUGE and complicated the link is using your suggested method - ALL the code at base of this is for the same link -

Brad, I'll update that tutorial NOW to delete all reference to that, as it will cause a headache when we need to merge over all links in one large purge.

Can we please use as always, the "BB CODE" option -

And just manually remove the "s" after https each time. :mrgreen:

If you take the "Linked BB Code" & remove "(don't take it out), then leave to & delete that at the end:

Image

& then you are left with just the "BB Code without the S" & your image comes up so.

I found it was reasonably quick to make the change. Hope it helps you.

When attempting to post a picture, I have recently been getting error message " unable to determine the dimensions of the image". I have used the same process of editing images to correct dimensions... and had no problem uploading. Has anyone else been having this problem. :? Thanks.

Hi

I've not posted an image for a while but just tried to include one in a post, did the usual remove the s from https off Imgur but it is still coming up with the title of this thread. Image size was set to 800x600. I did have to crop the image so wondered if this had affected anything but then tried cropping the image prior to uploading to Imgur.

So, I'm a bit stuck. Can you help?

Thanks

IMGUR does not work on Stampboards anymore.

Go to this thread and read the last couple of pages - https://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=284&start=3850 - Want to add a photo/image? Practice posting a picture HERE!

You will need to use IMGBOX or IMAGESHACK until the new Stampboards image-posting software is up and running -

The cause appears to be that Imgur now have an automatic redirect from the http to the https version of the URL, presumably for security reasons. So I doubt that paying for the service would make any difference whatsoever -- the problem is a longstanding flaw in the phpBB software itself, not Imgur.

However, a test on the new Stampboards with an Imgur https URL worked just fine (https://new.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=81556&p=6542610#p6542610) so when that goes live it should be possible to start using Imgur again.

I believe when the new Stampboards goes alive, we should use only onboard image hosting and no external services what-so-ever.

I've got thousands of images on imgur, and some on imageshack, which are organised in a different way to my own storage. It will be far easier to load from there.

There's always been an option with phpBB to upload images to the board as attachments, which can then be placed inline if wanted, but on Stampboards this has never been turned on (it's administrator-only by default). I've always assumed the reason was to reduce hosting costs by outsourcing the required storage space and bandwidth to external image hosting sites.

However, local hosting is the only way to avoid a potential sudden breakage of image links when <INSERT LATEST RECOMMENDED IMAGE HOSTER HERE> makes changes that cause them to stop working. I gather that the new site will allow that.

I wish you armchair experts would stay in your armchair, and comment on stamp areas you DO know something about. :roll:

As to your fantasy nonsense ''facts'', our current old version of phpBB has not allowed images to be added direct, and then quoted downstream as often occurs here. Not possible.

Endless hours behind the scenes have been expended on this - all unknown to the likes of you. 1000s of hours of Member volunteer time moved across the million external images three years back here, and not a second of YOUR time was volunteered on this, all should note.

The new version we are moving to, has sorted this. Our suggestions direct to phpBB initiated this feature.

As to your other fantasy insulting drivel about hosting costs, your genius brain appears blissfully unaware that a MILLION images have been entirely hosted here (at my considerable expense) for about 3 years now.

Millions of those same images have been shared on blogs and other sites using our url, and all of that at MY hosting costs.

I have personally spent $1000s this month alone from my pocket on stampboards - and if I bothered to add a PayPal DONATE button here, the last person I'd expect to click it, would be armchair expert on all things image related - mozzerb.

There are givers and takers in all walks of life sadly. :!:

The 1000s of givers here luckily carry the day, and make this the superb board that it is.

Re: "It was not possible to determine dimensions of the imag

Post by mozzerb »

Here we go again. :roll:

Let's see: your "current old version" of phpBB is 3.0.11, according to the post you made on the phpBB forum asking for help. That's three versions newer than the one I've been using, and that certainly includes an option "to upload images to the board as attachments, which can then be placed inline if wanted". I know that because I've used it. It's an option because it's one of the basic features of discussion board software. Look at the "Attachment Settings" in the administration control panel. (From a look at the new site, this is basically exactly the same option it is using to upload files.)

And OK, great, you've been hosting them for the last 3 years. Jolly good, have a cookie. That leaves 10 years previous to that when you weren't hosting them. If that was merely that you didn't realise you could, fair enough. Jeez Louise, just Google it.

Unlike whatever Mickey Mouse 10 year old board software you use, that you are referring to, we have the PhpBB leading global developer and code writer in New York working on stampboards.

You are clearly incapable of basic comprehension, so I'll repeat it again for the slow reader -

There are givers and takers in all walks of life sadly. :!:

The 1000s of givers here luckily carry the day, and make this the superb board that it is.

In civil society an apology is usual, after being proven totally wrong on such a basic error in fact, whereas $1,000s has actually been spent this month alone, to make things smoother and stronger for all users of the FREE board.

In the Maurice Buxton - mozzerb totally warped version of British good manners, this is his curmudgeonly version of an ''apology'' -

You are clearly incapable of basic comprehension, so I'll repeat it again for the slow reader
The Mickey Mouse software I use is phpBB, v3.0.8

Yes you admitted already it was ancient - we do not need to be bored with that again - released 10 years back as I posted, updated numerous times since by them, and totally and completely unsupported now.

Go and have fun with it, gawd help whatever Society you claim to be acting for, until it crashes and/or is hacked (security issues with that version were enormous) and leave the rest of us to move forward please, and stop de-railing this thread with your usual small minded, negative, pettiness. :roll: :roll:

I've not posted an image for a while but just tried to include one in a post, did the usual remove the s from https off Imgur but it is still coming up with the title of this thread. Image size was set to 800x600. I did have to crop the image so wondered if this had affected anything but then tried cropping the image prior to uploading to Imgur.

So, I'm a bit stuck. Can you help?

Thanks
IMGUR does not work on Stampboards anymore.

Go to this thread and read the last couple of pages - https://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=284&start=3850 - Want to add a photo/image? Practice posting a picture HERE!

You will need to use IMGBOX or IMAGESHACK until the new Stampboards image-posting software is up and running -

*At LAST!* The NEW stampboards is near Launch day. TEST IT!
