How to post photos

Post by shadowmegs on Sat Jun 19, 2010 11:01 pm

Instructions on how to post images on this forum:

First you will need to upload the photos from your computer onto an image host like Photobucket or Village Photos

Then copy the IMG Code for the image you would like to post. On Photobucket it looks like this:
The highlighted text is what you want to copy.


or if you use another image host you may need to copy the Direct Link instead then press the image button located at the top of the Text Area and paste the Direct Link between the
Code:
[img] and [/img]

Remember to Preview your post to check that the image will appear, if the photo is larger than 450 pixels high by 600 wide then it will be automatically re-sized

If you have any issues with posting photos then feel free to PM a Moderator or Admin. Or start a topic under the How Do I? section.

I know a lot of people find photobucket confusing; so I thought I'd add pictures to show people what to do, as visual is always easier than text.

So if you already have an account, this is what you'll see on your homepage;



Click the circled button, and select which photo you want uploaded.

uploading...


Then this will appear; photobucket is often very sloooow, so don't worry if it takes a while. You can add name(s) and tags here; not needed though, it just makes things easier when you have a huge album.

Then click the save button I very cleverly didn't include in the photo. It's just below the screen edge, however.

It will then take you back to your album page; move your cursor over the picture,(no need to click) and the little pop-up thingy will appear. Copy the [img] tag, and paste in your reply.




I hope that helps, and makes sense!
