Image Posting How-to

Post #1 by MustangSix » Sat Jul 16, 2005 1:21 pm

Some of the newbs are still having problems figuirng out how to post pics in the forum. A couple of folks suggested a sticky, so here goes....

Please keep your pix to a maximum 600 x 400 pixels if posting dirrectly to the topic .

First, you have to host the pics someplace. That means they have to be on a server that can be accessed thru the web and they'll have an address like http://fordsix.com/images/locostbrian.jpg , for example.

Now, you can just type that in and leave it if you want. When we click on it we'll see the image.

If you want to display the image on you post, you have to add image tags. These are the [img]picture[/img] tags. There are two ways to do this. First you can just type them in at the beginning and end of the pic url. Or even easier is to highight your url and then just click the Img button at the top of your post screen. The program will add the tags to each end automatically. You end up with

Image

And that should display in the post itself. Not all hosts allow linking, so you need to find one that does. I'm sure that someone will chime in with suggestions. Photobucket seems to be popular.

Remember not to leave any spaces between the URL and the Img tags. Also, don't put any periods or commas at the end of the URL.

Please keep your pix to a maximum 600 x 400 pixels

Remember that some folks are on dialup, so inserting dozens of pictures could kill them when they open a post.

Ok, now let's see them pix! :D

Bloody marvelous.

I'll give it a try sometime.....

I suffer from impatientitis. I did have photos pasted once with Addo's help but they're now gone!

Thanks Jack.

The HTML here is crippled. Try setting up a table if you want to feel frustration! :x It's just phpBB, not Jack's doing.

I tried a simple tutorial - if you're red-green colourblind I apologise.

When you click the "Browse" button you're looking for the image stored on your own computer. When the correct one is found, you click it once, select "Open" and then click "Host it". It will take you to the second page shown,after a short time.

Image Image

When you get to Step 3, click once inside the box to make it highlight blue. "Drag and drop" the highlighted part into your reply window on Fordsix. Click the Preview option next to Submit, to check it works. When it does, click Submit and you're done.
Right and Wrong are just words, what matters is what you do

Photo size

I found a way to shrink the file size down in photobucket to 2KB and smaller than the maximum width and height, but when I try to paste it into my profile, and pick submit, it wont take it.

What did I do wrong ?

From what I understand, leaving http on in a phpbb forum is a security risk.

Ok, I finally got a pic. of my stang to show everybody!!! It's nothing pretty to look at right now but, it's a start... I can't wait to get the engine rebuilt and to have it one soild color again... lol The biggest thing is I really can't wait to even be able to drive it around the block again... I thought I would show off my rims that I will be running on it... I only have the rear one's on because I still need to switch the front to 5 lug.

Dude,
Just copy the line below the pic that has the IMG tags around the address and drop it on the 'reply' field. See if it goes up by using the 'preview' button. You may have to resize it to fit the F6F limits. Just remember, once you go small you can not go big again. The pre-sized choices are good. I generally use 'medium' for message board.
