How To Post Photos

New postby PlasM on Wed Jul 09, 2008 12:34 pm

I thought this might help some people out who want to add multiple photos to their post. If this needs to go in another section please move it. :)

First of all you will want to sign up to a photo hosting site, the one I'm going to use in this example is photobucket: http://www.photobucket.com

This is a free service and you can store lots and looooooots of images here.

Step One:

Right the first thing we're going to do is sign up, I think you all know how to do that if you've managed to sign up to this forum.

Image

Now I'm going to assume the photos you want to upload are already on your computer. We need to find those now!

Step Two

Click this nice big button:

Image

Step Three

Select from this window, the photos you want you upload, (hold the ctrl key on your keyboard and click each image to select multiple photos.)

Image

Step Three

Select from this window, the photos you want you upload, (hold the ctrl key on your keyboard and click each image to select multiple photos.)

Click OK and you should see your image upload:

Image

Step Five

OK we need the bottom link under each photo for this forum. If you want to show the photos to your friends on an instant messenger or in an email, use the second link down.
But for now, we need this one:

Image

Click on that and it should automatically copy it. If it doesn't though, just right click on it, then click copy.

Step Six

Open your new post and right click in the text box. Click "paste".

Image

Then that's that! Just click submit on your post and they will appear as if by magic. 8) I hope this helps someone!

What reason is photobucket giving you for not being able to upload them?

Yeah you can try imageshack! But photobucket should allow you to upload any image, so if you let me know what's happening I can try to help. :)

Do you mean avatar? The bit next to your username?

If so go to user control panel, click profile, then "edit avatar."

Then, if you have an image small enough, you can click to upload it from your machine, OR you can follow the guide above, apart from just under where you click to upload the image on photobucket, there's a little scroll box. Change it to 160x120 (small).

Then copy the "direct link" instead of "img code" (which is what we used in the walkthrough up there,) and paste it into "Link Offsite".

Should work a treat. :)

I am having trouble with re-size to small, I can't get Flash 9 on my laptop so I can't use the "edit size" feature.
I'll try a couple other services and see if I can make it work.
Guess it worked, I see it.
Thanks, Mel

Does anyone know if photos can be posted by using Picasa instead of photobucket? I'd love to share some pictures, but they are all on Picasa. Any advice out there?

I couldn't get this to work from my MAC. So I ended up joining photobucket and it looks like it works perfectly.

Anybody out there post pics from a MAC?

Oh, thank you, thank you.

I have just posted a question asking this very thing. Just before I found your answer!

But I got it! Thanks again.
