How to post pictures on the forum

Postby Dizzle118 » Tue Jun 30, 2009 1:50 pm

In short you need to have the images stored on a third party site such as http://www.photobucket.com or on your own website.

Copy the url of the picture, which will looks something like

Code: Select all

www.yourdomain.com/yourpicture.jpeg


When making you post on this site click the 'Img' button and copy this url into the message box this will wrap the line in image tags and your picture should be displayed.

Code: Select all

[img]www.yourdomain.com/yourpicture.jpeg[/img]


as an example take my signature I used photobucket.... when you upload it, it tells you under the image the url, or you can right click on the picture and select properties then it tells you the url, you can highlight that link and select copy, the link for my image is http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v15/d ... -1copy.jpg

so

Code: Select all

[img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v15/daz306td/sigs/Untitled-1copy.jpg[/img]


gives me:

Doesn't work with images from Flickr - I've now tried 3x. I suspect because the url doesn't include the image type.

In flickr if you click 'Share this' and then 'Grab the HTML/BBCode' select BBCode and copy everything between and including the [img] tags it will just link your picture. You can also choose how big to make the picture display.

Other fora I'm on have a nifty resizing feature, ie. if you post a mahoosive image, it resizes it into a smaller, clickable image. BB seems to just allow whopping images to be posted, which can be annoying; it involves resizing stuff yourself, and re-uploading. I've found Imageshack actually works reasonably well on here, and I normally use the bucket of p.

I am going to creat a photobucket account and do some 'experimenting' on this forum over the weekend as it would be good to become part of the 'uploaded photo's clever dicky community' ! 8)

I note that people generally cover up or disguise their reg nos, presumably for security reasons (although I'm not entirely sure Why?). How's this done? Is it simply by editing the photo and re-saving?

Yup, edit the original before uploading, if you're security nervous.

Lots of people use Photoshop, etc, but Microsoft Paint is my 'low skills' way! :lol:
