Not too many entries this week, but I did choose couple that appealed to me. Delica domination.




Attila's shot takes the win. In addition to the crisp pic, the knife mimicking the rebar, or vice versa, is art.

Runner up is the shot by brumledb. Little bit biased here, as this is my latest purchase, so I have the extra 'new' fondness for the G10 Delica. Great looking knife, great pic

I know for me, a big reason I have been posting less photos is because it has become such a pain finding a relatable site that will host my image while giving me access to the bbcode on my phone.

Anytime I post an image I have to try imgur, Flickr and photobucket just to see which will work that day.

I've had great success with Imgur on my phone just long pressing the photo to get the "share direct link" copied to my clipboard. You still need to add the IMG tags on this forum manually or via the Full Editor.

Hmm...that worked pretty well, just like you described. I’ll do that from now on. Thanks abbazaba!

What kind of phone's are you guys using? I've been trying to do what you're doing with the Imgur app on my Samsung (Android) devices for months and it does not work. When I try to "share", copy link, etc and then add the IMG tags the image doesn't show. I have to open Imgure in my devices web browser (Chrome) and then copy and paste the BB code. That works fine and it's easy enough but it would be nice to use the app.

Yeah, I'll continue to use Chrome too. I'm generally the tech guy at home and at work but I thought there might be something I was missing with the app.

Android here... The trick is not clicking the share button, and instead long pressing the photo and a menu pops up that says "share direct link". This way includes the necessary ".jpg", which I think is the only difference between it and using the Share button (which is the same link without the file extension at the end.

Nice shot! It looks like your photo was taken with an old photo of Crater Lake in the background. :D

Thanks! I have it now. For some reason the long press wasn't working for me earlier. I still think it's a little faster to just open another browser tab, open imgur (I have a shortcut there in Chrome) and then copy the BB code. I'm glad I can finally do it both ways now though.

Definitely a nice shot Spydersense!!!
