  • Tutorial Show image animation, and transparent backgrounds in your post's.

    Many have noticed that an animated image does not show the animation after they make a post.
    And some have noticed that a .png screen shot with a transparent background is showing a white background after they make a post.



    ===


    I will explain the quick fix in hopes that this will help others in the future.
    Basically it is as easy as 1-2-3...


    ===


    1) From the default editor click on 'Go Advanced'. Commonly referred to as the Advanced Editor.
    ( Click on screens to enlarge )



    2) Double click on your image to open the 'Image Settings' window.


    3) Select any ONE of the radial buttons from the top 2 rows except the buttons 'None', and 'Thumbnail'.
    Either 'None' or 'Thumbnail' are the default settings that need to be changed.
    BUT, you ONLY have to change one of them for this fix.

    Any questions please ask someone on staff here.
    And Staff, please bookmark this thread to reference others in the future,
    at least until a permanent fix is found

                  Re: Show image animation, and transparent backgrounds in your post's.

                  This works 90% of the time but in some cases like @Lamia: mentioned it don't...i searched high and low to fix this hick up but so far no luck!
                  It can be a server restriction setting which i can't fix!

                  We will need to live with that until one day i can move to a decent vps or dedicated server where i can manage my own settings!

                  But anyway...great and very helpful tutorial @HammerJack: thanks for your time and input...+rep for you!

                    Yes sir, I noticed those previews also and for the 1st time I have not been able to fix one. Or two in this case, lol..
                    At first I thought it may be the format and I even opened PS and the .psd for the Apple monitor to make my own .png screen but no luck.
                    Then I opened the editor in source mode to rearrange code there, but nothing again..

                    Looks like John just answered above, your question and my mine about this ONLY working 90% of the time.
                    I could delete the thread and re-post it?
                    @Megabink:,
                    John each time I uploaded a .png screen for the Nuclear thread, it saved it as a .jpg
                    Maybe one clue??

                      yeah i agree jpg is the best format for a forum...if your not using transparency in your image of course!
                      But i can't understand why it convert png images to jpg...i never added this option in my server panel...need to check this!

                      I have set max picture dimensions to 1920x1200 everything that is lager will re-sized,but it has noting to do with covering png to jpg automatically lol.

                            That is the 1st time I have seen that when I was trying to change out the preview for the Nuclear thread???
                            IF - Anthony uploaded a .jpg format to begin with, could it be stuck in memory so to speak and not letting me change it to a .png format?
                            I am betting if I were to start a new thread I could get the PNG preview to look right.

                            Glad you saw this thread.
                            And hope you do not mind me using your post as an example up there in my screenshots..:beg:

                            Also, we ask that you upload all your screens to our server and not link to host sites.
                            Many times these links end up broken which translates into members asking questions, which translates into more work for the staff, etc, etc...

                              If it has the same name it could be yes...try to rename the image and see what happens!
