Notes for Posting
by wassock moderator
When Post any cropped images please include the URL of the main HiRise page that your crop is taken from.
If you are cropping images you need to store your image somewhere on line such as dropbox so that you can reference it and include it in your post. To do this you need to get the location URL for the image, and paste it into the box that appears when you click on the little polaroid photo icon above.
NB for the image posted below the dropbox link is https://www.dropbox.com/s/w9o2bhf67s8xamv/Capture.PNG?dl=0 To make it work as an embedded image you have to edit it to https://dl.dropbox.com/s/w9o2bhf67s8xamv/Capture.PNG?dl=0 - changing the "www" to "dl". If you have problems with this please message me.
For this image of Boulders rolling into a crater the HiRise page which gives all the details about the image like when it was taken,latitude and longitude etc is here http://www.uahirise.org/PSP_010725_2115

Hi Guys I'm not sure if we are allowed to post this sort of stuff on here. If its not allowed please remove.
Many thanks Ed
Perhaps put it there? (And then I can remove the post here.)
Hi DZM, I am a total old luddite, and so I would love to know how I can 'collect' such an image as the one you posted., (within P4) Great image for a 'boulder freak' like me. 'I can 'screenshot', etc, but it seems to me it would be good if within P4, if we can exchange images from P4 and HiRISE from the urls without having to go off site to get them. (see, I said I was a Luddite* :-)~ Pete

Pete if you know the url for the image you can just put it into a post with the 'polaroid' tool above the comment box.
- the url for my avatar is http://zooniverse-avatars.s3.amazonaws.com/ouroboros/1246844 to find that right click on the image (or any other image on a web page) and then choose "copy image url" NB just be wary of copyright issues when doing this if you are taking images from more commercial sources.
So using the polaroid too and pasting the url we just copied we get I've never been able to get the [enter description here] bit to work so just ignore that.
I'm using dropbox as an intermediary for most of my images because I'm cropping them and the internet can't find image files on my hard drive (I hope not least ways) and so I have to put then somewhere that has a URL address that can be found by a web page. Also there are display limitations on here and to display even a normal HiRise image correctly you need to downsize it. Drop box is an easy way of doing it (apart from the "dl" for "www" issue but I could put it on a page on my own website just as easily.
Have you tried this "Tag group" gizmo yet? Seems there are 170 images tagged boulder/boulders!
