Default Photo Posting

This is a tech from the HAMB on posting pictures. It really helped me and thought it might help some of you guys.

Let's just copy it over onto here (with a few minor revisions)....

Original HAMB post by Blacksix.

************************************************** *********

Ok....I've seen a lot of posts with folks asking how to post pics.

I know some people have felt a little embarrassed about it but it's no big deal.



I'll try and lay this out easy with some graphics and maybe this will walk you through the process the next time you want to post some pics up.



Let's get started.



I use www.imageshack.us for my picture hosting on forums. It's a free service that does not require registration and is almost completely "newbie" proof.



When you open Imageshack, you'll see a screen like the one below.

Select the BROWSE button.





When you select the BROWSE button, you'll get a new window.







This window should be pointed at the "My Pictures" folder on your computer. If your image is located somewhere else, use the icons on the left of the window or use the "Up" icon at the top to find the folder where your image is stored.



Once selected, your image should show up in the previously empty "file" window. Go to the bottom of the page and hit "Host It!"



Easy enough!



Ok...now to get that image to the JJ post



I want to post this image straight up, no thumbnail. JJ is a PHP based forum so it uses some simple code. We need to look for the tag that starts with [IMG] and ends with [/IMG]. Anything in the middle of that tag is a URL or direct link to your image on Imageshacks servers.



LEFT CLICK in that block and you will highlight the whole row. Once it's highlighted, RIGHT CLICK and select COPY from the drop down menu.







Now....go back to your "MESSAGE BOX" on the JJ forums. Dont use the "insert image" icon, just paste into the message.



In the box use your left mouse button and click once. You will see the flashing cursor. At this point RIGHT CLICK and select PASTE This will COPY-PASTE that code into the forum. You should see something like this:







Be sure and hit ENTER between your words and your picture, and also between pictures.


When done....hit the Preview Post button. This should display your image inthe PREVIEW area above the MESSAGE BOX.







I hope this helps!

Thing is, most guys here seem to use Photobucket, and some who use Imageshack post huge pics that require scrolling the screen sideways.

Here are my tips for Photobucket

************************************************** ***********


Get a free pic account at http://www.photobucket.com , if you dont already. Then you can upload your pics into it.



Note in the "upload" area there's a blue link that say "more options" click and it pre-sets an image-sizer.








800 x 600' is best for full-size pics here.






Then, "Save" and you are ready to post.


From your main album page, for the pic you want to post, you want to select the link "IMG Code"....click it, on mine it turns blue, then I right-click/"copy", and right-click/"paste" it, directly into your post message.


Dont use the little picture icons, just put it into the message so it looks like [IMG] http: at the beginning & .jpg [/IMG] at the end (but with no spaces).


Be sure and hit "enter" between your text and the pic, and between pics. And use the "preview" button.


Good luck.

.

Any chance we could post this on the "Board" page??? I know new people never read sticky's but it sure would be more enjoyable looking at threads if they used photobucket and posted full screen pics. And no, I don't mean the one that you have to scroll sideways on. I know I am preaching to the choir but if there was even the slightest chance that some of them would use it, it would be worth it.

Thanks,
Scott

Like you say, the Stickies are basically invisible. And another on the board just displaces a build/tech thread there.

When folks ask or seem to be having problems, we refer/link them to this one anyway...

I was thinking if it was placed under the thread"Our pictures thread..." on the general discussion page that maybe people would find it easier because you know they never go to the questions/suggestions page. One of the highlights of this forumn is quality pictures.

Thanks,
Scott

Here ya go step by step:

Right click on your image and save it to your desktop.

Open another window.

Go to www.tinypic.com

Click BROWSE

When the window pops up, find your image on your desktop and click it.

Click Open. That sends the IMG to Tinypic.

On Tinypic Click UPLOAD NOW

LEFT Click on the line with [IMG] in brackets to highlight it and then RIGHT CLICK on it.

Click COPY

Click the PIC icon here at JJ (little mountain scene)

Right click on that blank and click PASTE.

Click OK.

Pics should hit the site fine.

Default Re: how do you add photos to your thread

get a photo bucket (www.photobucket.com) add the pictures from your computer to the above photo bucket that you made. after the pics are on the said photo bucket, put your mouse over the picture (dont click) and a drop down will show up. there is an option that says IMG code: copy the code and paste it onto your thread.
