Inserting pictures in posts
Several members have asked how to put a picture into a post recently.
So here is a simple updated tutorial how to do it.


How to insert pictures into a post

1. Go to website TinyPic - Free Image Hosting, Photo Sharing & Video Hosting

2. Click BROWSE and locate the photo you want to upload

3. Click UPLOAD

5. With your mouse right click on this and click COPY

6. Go to your post and place the cursor where you want the picture

7. Click on the INSERT IMAGE picture

8. Paste the text you copied from Direct link for layouts and then click OK

MAKE SURE THERE IS ONLY 1 HTTP// IN THE FINAL BOX AS THE PIC WON'T UPLOAD PROPERLY.

9. Either PREVIEW your post or click SUBMIT and then hopefully your picture will appear

Re: Inserting pictures

jcrian,

Isn't there a simpler way?

I have lots of photos that I would like to upload, but it all seems too complicated!

For that reason alone, I have never bothered.

Does anyone have a simpler solution?

It only reads like it is complicated, give it a go. After you have done it a couple of times you won`t even think about it.

The simpler solution is the the lazy one and get someone to do it for you.

That tutorial was to put a picture into a post.

You can upload your photos into an album.Look in the lefthand menu Photo Gallery

I can't believe it. It worked. Had to right click to find Paste, but I did it, not sure if I'll be able to do it again. I hope I will be able to find this thread again. Could you make it a sticky please?

See it wasn't that hard Saminmi, well done.

Yes it is a sticky in Geeky stuff so you should be able to find it easily again.

Re: Inserting pictures

Ian, should it not be the code that they should be inserting so that the actual picture appears on the forum rather than a link to the picture.[/quote]


I always use the direct link (bottom one) and that always works.

There doesn't seem to be a way to direct link and upload from your computer as there are on some other forums so it looks like an online storage medium is the only option. A bit fiddly but no problem once you get the hang of it.

Re: Inserting pictures

If you use the paperclip icon for attachments you can post your own pics that way

Probably I'm being a thicko (not unusual) but you can only see the paperclip if you hit the "Go Advanced" button at the bottom of the screen.
