Guide: How To Post Photos.

Post by aliengravy » Wed May 06, 2009 12:57 pm

There seems to be some confusion on how to post photos, so to help members i thought i would post up a how to.

Firstly the images need to be hosted somewhere, for this i normally use Picasa by Google as it is a very easy to use service and has a nice PC based application that is very useful for handling photos. Other members prefer Photobucket, and some use personal hosting services. It doesn't really matter what service is used as long as the image will have a fixed, direct, URL.

Once your image is hosted online you need to navigate to the image and then right click the image and select properties. You will see a URL which is the direct image URL. Once you have located this copy it by right clicking after hi-lighting.
Image

Then To post the image into the board, create your new post and click on the "img" button (1).
Then paste the direct URL between the two image tags where the arrow (2) is pointing.
Image

Finally you should have a line that looks like this.
Image

Put a return after each line to space images out nicely. Complete your post, and then click on submit.

Any questions, just ask!!

Probably because you are trying to upload it to the site, rather than hosting it elsewhere and pasting in the URL.

Open a PhotoBucket account (free) follow the instructions there for posting your photo there and follow the instructions above or come back to me.

It seems with imageshack.us you MUST either right click the image and copy the url, OR, even better, use the direct link box on the right, as some sites change the pictures url frequently to enable them to monitor traffic to that picture.

Works for me! click the image until its full size. Right click, and then (normal) click 'copy image URL'

Post it between the Img tags that appear when you click the tab Img above the box you are making your post into, and voila! :D :D :D
