HOW TO POST PICTURES

HOW TO POST PICTURES

From time to time people ask how to post pictures so here is a quick answer.

First off, if anyone wants to see how someone does anything in their post, just hit the quote button and look at all the "code" that is between the [ and the ]

Pictures need to be stored some where on the internet.  There are several free host or if you have a website, host it there.  some free examples are Imageshack, Tinypic, photobucket.  They are all free but all have different rules and restrictions.  Read the terms of service and see which one meets your need.  For the record I am VERY happy with Imageshack, others here are happy with Tinypic.

Pictures should look like this and the image button is at the red arrow:
Image

The same principal works with any picture you see on the internet.  Move you mouse over the image, right click, select properties.  Then all you have to do is cut and past the link, highlight the link and hit the image button.  like this, I will post the eomahaforums banner....

HOW TO UPLOAD PICTURES TO POSTIMAGE.ORG

Below the text space in a post reply box you will find an Add image to post link.
A PostImage.org window will then appear. But here is the tricky part. I can only get it to work this way:

Do not browse for a file here - but click on the bottom About
and in the next window - Upload your images -
Now browse from folders the file you want. You can enter a description. Now upload it.
Now copy to clipboard the BBCode and in the text box here ctrl - v it.

It will now copy both a url and an img tag and it will provide a thumbnail:

I use Shutterfly,  If it does not have the jpg on the end can I put it on manually?

We have added the "Add image to post" Mod. Right above and below the Text area in the Post A Reply page you will find the link that will open a window where you can again upload a picture to Postimage.org and then link it on your post. From testing it, it does not insert the link into your post, so you will have to copy and paste it once the link is made below the Tip text (Above the "Add image to Post" text. It will insert a Thumbnail, which anyone can click on to see the full size version.

Anyone have a good recommendation for a good photo hosting app? Photo Bucket now charges a hefty fee to enable 3rd party linking. I fell into their trap and got all mine back by paying. What is everyone else using???

It's not as no frills as it was in the past, but Imgur is what I use.

I think people are still using flickr.

That said, you can get your own domain and website for like $4 a month on Go Daddy. You wouldn't even need a website if you didn't want, just pay the $4 and drop all your photos in there and link them straight from your own domain name.

I also use imgur although I usually just use the mod on here that allows you to upload directly to here.
