Posting a Picture

Post by Big Boy » Mon Dec 13, 2010 3:32 am

I have been asked for directions regarding posting a photo. I know we must have instructions somewhere, but here it is again.

When finished, I will lock the thread, and make it a sticky - that should make it easy to find in the future.

[Mod Edit] Text in Blue brought forward to ensure process is in a logical order.
Before you can consider uploading images they must be under 200kb in file size and 800 pixels wide else they will not upload. You cannot just post 5 megabyte pictures off your camera as the pages will take forever to load, this website will resize them for you: www.shrinkpictures.com

Step 1 - Open the posting screen as usual.

Step 2 - Move down the screen to the Upload attachment section.

Step 3 - Select the file that you want to upload from your computer

Select Open from the selection screen.

Step 4 - You will be returned to the original dialogue box, but the Filename will have been automatically completed.

Select Add the File

Step 5 - A new dialogue box will appear while the file is being uploaded to the forum - do nothing while this is happening.

Step 6 - Directly below your Text Box you will see something like this:

Click the Place inline box.

Well, there you go guys, it's as simple as that :wink:

If anybody has difficulty with the above directions, please post here. I or another moderator will make any necessary amendments/corrections.

Just to add to this that images must be under 200kb in file size and 800 pixels wide else they will not upload. You cannot just post 5 megabyte pictures off your camera as the pages will take forever to load, this website will resize them for you: www.shrinkpictures.com
