    Transloading images bug. :(


    When trying to upload pictures here it says the .jpg image has the wrong file extension if I check the host here box.
    If I un-check the box the picture works.
    I use .png images so the info box is wrong to begin with.

    This is a bug in my opinion.

    Can you fix it ?

    Hey David, I had this issue as well. Here's how you can fix it..

    Go to Folder Options, click the View tab, uncheck Hide extensions for known file types.

    Click image for larger version

    Click image for larger version

    Next, right click the file and rename it to image.jpg or image.png.

    The link for my images can't be changed.

    I use Post Image to upload screenshots.
    I am transloading, not uploading.

    That is, I am referencing a url & not a file on my computer.



    I have to uncheck the box to get it to work:

    I see what you mean now. I couldn't read the images so I took a guess at what you were saying.

    To make the images bigger, left click them.

    Edit--- For some reason they fail to get bigger when clicked.

    Right click them & choose open in a new tab or window.
    I added this one from my computer.
    It should enlarge if you left click it.

    Click image for larger version

    This one is from a url:

    I found out Post Image was at fault.

    It uploads as .jpeg & names it .png.

    So, I can just rename the .png's to .jpeg's & they get inserted here nicely.

    I'm glad I got this sorted out.

    It may help somebody else.
