How can I get my thumbnail review Gallery picture to enlarge when it is clicked? Right now, when my thumbnail picture is clicked, it just goes to the review.

This is an easy one.

Okay, when you start writing a review, on the first page you get to

STEP 3: add a photo from an online gallery

You need to have first uploaded your photo to someplace online, I use picasaweb, you can use flickr, webshots, or the space here at PR.

You go to that image and get the address for it. Now exact details for that are in the forums on help, etc. (I don't know what it's called.)

But it's that one step, STEP 3, that you need to do. Then of course the last step of uploading a Thumbnail, and they will be connected.

Ah, I saw you use picasaweb too.

Here's what you need to highlight then copy and then paste as your locations so the photo enlarges properly.

Find the photo you want, in the size you want, right click on the photo and select the entire url location as shown above.

Mine does the same thing. I believe I have to link to a picture that's in "my" computer & make sure it ends in "jpg". I've done this, but still instead of magnifying, it goes to the review. What am I doing wrong??

This happened to me till I finally figured it out. (Now I use Flickr not Picasa so I/m not sure if exact steps apply.) In the writing review steps when asked to add photo from Flickr,(or your host website) go to your photo host site (Picasa) click on JUST that photo, ie ONLY the photo is in your window. Now for Flikr you have an option on photo "toolbar" select size. I click on that and an even LARGER version of picture comes up Go down to number 2 where it says "grab photo's URL" ...not sure if Picasa has this option. Highlight URL, it will end in jpg and copy -paste into review box where you need to have your photo URL If you look at my older reviews , the whole Flickr website and photo popped up...NOT good cos someone can download to "Wacky "sites as I found out to my chagrin. By JUST having the picture jpg URL they "hopefully cant do that. After you post review upload sam epicture you used from your OWN computer "My Pictures" ie when it says "browse"...
If WHOLE Picasa or Flikr website is included in URL I dont think PR can show JUST the enlarged picture when you click on it in Gallery. Too big or something.
This new way works super...some kind soul told me about it in "watch your Flikr photos" Thread
Good Luck !! Photos are much bigger and nicer this way

Thank you. Your information about the inclusion of the full picasa web site in my photo url was true. Once that was out of there, it does the proper magnification.

Glad you figured it out, RedCurtain.

In case anyone looks up this thread in the future here's how it works for flickr:

Copy the image's location.



Paste this link into "finished garment photo URL." The thumbnail that shows up in the gallery is separate; this is uploaded from your computer.
