  • Posting pictures how to

    Ok guys here is how to post pictures on this forum

    There are 3 parts
    1. Resize picture
    2. Upload picture
    3. Link to picture

    1. Resize picture
    Once you have taken your fantastic photo copy it onto your computer. As you all have fantastic cameras, the images are huge. We need to shrink the image to make it sensible for the forum.

    Right click the image and select to open it in paint. Once opened select the resize option (windows 7) or select edit>attributes (XP)



    Once selected choose the size in pixels. These images are set at 1200 pixels wide



    Hit enter and the image has been resized. Select 'save as' and save under a different file name (you dont want to replace the original)



    2. Upload picture

    We now need to upload the image onto the web. I use http://imageshack.us/ but there are a number of site that all work a similar way.

    Once on the site select browse and select your resized image from the desktop



    Hit upload and you should get the following screen


    3. Link to picture

    Once you have the edit post page up select the image upload icon and enter the address highlighted in the picture above.



    If all goes to plan hit preview and bam



    Any problems post here

          Now that the site has been upgraded does the posting of images need to updated to reflect the procedure for the action of posting pictures?

          The reason I ask is that initially I started posting pics from my picture folder on my laptop, all went well until about 6 weeks back when I got a message to say the pics I was trying to upload to my journal thread stated that I had exceeded my limit (I didn't know there was a limit), and that is why there is the "deleted" post between post #6 and #7 as the post locked up as I tried to deleted the pics from the post (can the admin not remove that deleted post all together please?). Since then I have tried to load pics a number of times using the Imgur account that I was using when the old site was running, but in the end I gave up. Every time I tried to load pics there was an error message. I don't know where I'm going wrong so a bit of info to allow me to post pics again would be much appreciated. I've just been too busy getting the MC ready for this weekend at the Classic to ask before now.

            Since the site upgrade things may be slightly different but if you use Imgur or flickr the procedure should be the same, the new software doesnt allow for copy and paste

            anymore so posting pictures from a web page is more involved.


            This is how I post pictures from my PC (windows 10) using Imgur but it may be different depending on your own PC's operating system



            When I have taken a picture it gets added to my OneDrive so then I use Imgur to allow me to add it to the forum,

            Open up Imgur (I dont have to log in but do have an account)

            Click on "NEW POST" in top left corner

              Click on Choose Photo/video which should open up your computers stored pictures

              Click on the picture you want to use and it should appear (you may have to resize if pictures is too large but works ok for me without)




              Move you mouse to the top right corner of the picture and two boxes should appear - click on the right box - a drop down menu will then appear

              Click on "get shared links" - click on BBcode (forums) - link should be highlighted - you can then paste into a thread by right clicking your mouse -

                  If you want to post a picture from the web you can use the same procedure if you can download the picture to your PC (some sites dont allow this but most do)
