how to add a photo

Recommended Posts

hi, 

i am trying to add a photo in a message

the box in the bottom right " insert other media" gives me the option, " insert existing attachment", when i hit that, i get taken to a folder somewhere, on pm laptop, but dont know where!

and i cant change it?

how do i get to a folder i want to attach?

it doesnt show the "drag files here to attach " option like it does below on the left.

 

thanks

I think there is some sort of inherent problem with the 'insert other media' program.

It should work better than it does and it should be possible to by-pass it altogether and be able to paste photos onto this site if need be.

I can't get it to work and I've tried a lot of back door methods. "Believe me."

I use it, and it works. OP was using the wrong steps.

I still think you should be able paste a photo here. 

All the other stuff shouldn't be necessary. 

If it works for you, great; it doesn't work for me any more. It used to work for me.

Which exact steps are you following, and what happens when it fails?

    • It's a bit hard to tell. Looks like the adjust wheel looks grimy tried to zoom the picture but it's a bit blurred. What I would do is put the stem back in and check the enguagement to see if it engages smoothly and isnt binding. Check the squared end of the stem to see if the corners haven't been rounded.
    • I have stripped down the movement completely and will check and re-assemble it tomorrow. Here's a pic of what the stem area looked like. Notice anything wrong ? I'm a newbie with quartzes so I certainly don't.
    • The additional jewels for the 24 jewels movements is for the auto winder, so shouldn't effect the loading of the gear train. The balances I believe are all the same, with some receiving additional adjustment for chronometer grading. I wonder if the GR reference is made from measurements of original springs fitted, and perhaps Omega updates them over time? Perhaps the metallurgy of the springs changed through the years, although all would be white alloy. The GR catalogue also quotes various springs for the Cal 26X range, but I believe these should probably all be the same. There's an argument that running a centre-seconds hand adds to the load (it will typically reduce amplitude by something like 5-10 degrees when adjusted) but that's not enough to significantly affect performance. I see that on the Cousins website they list three different springs if you search for a Cal 565... On my Cal 552 I have a 1.10 x .105 x 360 (11) spring which reaches 300 degrees amplitude, if that helps.
    • oh well, can't save them all.   But I try
    • The watch has been returned to the customer. You are correct someone had been poking around with this movement most of the screws were very badly bruised the hairspring had been badly damaged & the balance staff broken.
