Actually, your 2160 x 1007 image did upload. You just have to click on it to view it at the full resolution. It appears that anything more than 1200 pixels wide will break the frames in the forum software used here so they get downsized a bit so they display better onscreen. Images around 1600 x 1200 is about as big as they need to be so your original picture is close to ideal. If you go a lot bigger than that it slows down the page loads in the really photo intensive threads and it takes longer to upload your images.

Can someone help me? All of the sudden my recent photos in my posts go to a red X. When I go to edit to re-add them they are already there. Anyone know how to fix this? I put them in by copy/paste from Google Photos.
I think sometimes it's just a glitch with a specific server that's trying to download the image to your post and usually the problem clears up on its own. Other times it can be a hiccup in your browser. Try using a different browser to see if you get better results, or make sure your current browser is updated to the most recent version.
Post a link or two for a couple of posts that seem to be troublemakers for you and we'll have a look.
I sorta ran into a similar issue using Copy/Paste from my computer on the forum; pix turned out very small and couldn't be enlarged for viewing.
Rather than Copy/Paste, try uploading the file either from your computer or from Google Photos using
the UPLOAD A FILE at the lower right - ->>

Thanks for your help!
@Chief 64 ,You're not being held at ransom from PhotoBucket, are you?
no, I am using google photos.
It appears that you have your images stored on some sort of a Google service. I'm not exactly sure how that works, not using a similar service myself. But are you even sure that Google allows you to link images to third party sites? Maybe it's a case that Google considers it to be more of a image "storage" service than an image "hosting" service.
The links for the location of your images shown below are much too long and aren't indicated as being jpeg files. I think the links are for the "red x" placeholder that's showing in your posts.
One solution, if you post your images on a lot of different sites, is to upload copies of them to an image hosting site. Photobucket used to be popular (and free) until they decided they didn't want to drown in red ink. There may still be some other free image hosting services but they're not as common as they used to be.
If you're only posting pics here (or the Ford Barn or Ryan's other sites, I assume) it's probably easiest to upload them to Ryan's servers and link them from there. It's simple to do, like "gatz" shows above, and best of all it's FREE!
Clay thanks for your help.
I am using google photos which is supposed to be photo storage and hosting. I will try gatz method. No can do. When I hit upload a file it goes to iCloud which is out of date and has no new photos. I can’t seem to get to google photos or anywhere else. I will have to ask one of my kids to help. How do I upload to Ryan’s server?
I save pics to my gallery, or download them, and upload them from there, it works much easier for my simple brain than any other method I have tried.
Like gatz showed in the post above . . .
How To Post Images On A Thread
This will store copies of your pics on Ryan's server so that they can be displayed here on the HAMB forums and probably any of his other related sites. Just remember that I don't think you'll be able to link them on just any other non-Atomic Industries website.
Try posting a pic or two in this thread and see how it works for you. Post them from your own computer instead of trying to upload them from your Google Photos account.
Thanks Lothiandon1940 - The 53 Pontiac is the slowest car I have ever driven and owned but it is a blast to cruise in.
ClayMart, gatz & s55mercury66 - Well it has been almost 2 days and my "test picture " is still here and didn't turn into a RED X so I guess we got it figured out. I posted the Pontiac by saving the picture form Google Photos as a .jpg to my laptop and then uploading it to a new post as you guys suggested.
Thanks for your help guys!!! The HAMB family rescues me again!!!!
You did good.
Yep . . . It's a pretty straight forward process and makes perfect sense if you're only wanting to post the photos here. If you still have the image on your desktop or laptop you can upload it directly to the HAMB and that will save you another step in the process.
Best part of uploading to the HAMB is that the picture will be there for future viewers. Lot of decent tech pictures lost to photobucket or covered with their watermark.
Nowadays the best thing I can think of for Photobucket is to piss in their bucket
What a sense of humor.
