FAQ- How can I put pictures in my posts? [OLD]

Postby old-git » 08 Oct 2004, 19:42

If you would like to include a picture image in any of your postings
there are three conditions that have to be met first.

1, The image size is not to great.
2, The image has to be a *.jpg or a *.gif file format.
3, It has to exist on the Internet somewhere.

So open the image you want to post, (lets call it 'mypic' for example),
in whatever program you use for pictures, and re-size it if necessary to
a size suitable for the forum. Then save it as mypic.jpg or mypic.gif

Here are three example sizes :-

Image200x150 pixels

Image300x225 pixels

Image400x300 pixels

Image maximum 800x800 pixels

(please consider people who are on dial up modems, the bigger the
picture image, the slower their connection becomes.)

Once you have prepared your image you will need to upload it to a web
space, such as the space that comes free with most ISP's like Freeserve
or whomever you connect with. (You will probably need an FTP program to
do this, such as 'FTP Commander' which is free, and get login details
from your ISP.

Maybe an easier way to get your images onto the Internet somewhere is to
use a free photo hosting site, such as http://www.photobucket.com/ where
they will let you upload and store your images for free. I don't know
what restrictions they have, so read their terms.

OK, so now that your image does exist on the Internet somewhere we need
to link to that image so it shows in your post. What we need is the 'WWW
address' of your image.

View any standard image on the Internet, then RIGHT CLICK on it, and
then select PROPERTIES from the little menu that appears. This will
bring up a properties tab, and on that tab you will see the ADDRESS URL
of that image. This is the WWW address we want.
Try it on the large image above, it should come up with an address of
http://www.pe30.org/klf/mypic400.jpg because that is where it lives, that is its address.

OK, So make a post, type your words, then where you want to put the
image in, type this:-

[img]whole-address-here[/img]

or there is the Img button just above the window you will be typing your post in,
which does this [img]on%20the%20first%20click%20and%20this[/img] on the second.

The "whole-address-here" section should be replaced with the ADDRESS of
the image, e.g. http://www.pe30.org/klf/mypic400.jpg

Hope this helps someone
Happy picture posting :wink:

Hi delbert :D
I don't think you will have any problems making you bucket public.

All it means is, if you click on "invite guest", it will automatically generate an email with a link to your bucket. If you have set your bucket to public the recipient of the email can just click on the link and view all your photos without using a password.

If you set it to "not public - but here's a password", and set a password, you can still invite guests but they will need to use the password you have set.

Hope this is what your asking :D

Hi Delbert,

http://www.imageshack.us/ still does picture uploads without requiring registration. The drawback is that the picture appears quite small (but once you click on it, you'll see it in its full size).

Best,
The Jurgen
