Hey Jen...how do I post pictures

What black magic is involved with posting pictures?



Edited because it should say "Hey Jen... not "Hay Jen..."

post the picture to some type of web hosting such as photopoint. Obtain the URL that goes to that picture. Then insert the url into the syntax below:

How do I post pictures

Do I need to post a link to something like photopoint or something else. I am really a novice to this digital camera.

Is there a how to section that gives us instructions on posting, moving one's post to another forum, posting pictures, using smiles, etc.

There's two ways to post photos:

1. Host the photos on a website or a free hosting service. From there you can use the [ img ] and [ /img ] tags (just stick the exact URL for the image in between those two tags with no spaces and make sure you remove the spaces in the tags as well) to show the picture. Just make sure the URL you use brings up nothing but the image. If it brings up a web page then it won't show.

2. Use the attach file option to attach your image directly from your computer to our server. The file needs to be a .gif or .jpg file and has to be under 102400 bites in size.

Wes, only contributors/moderators can post pics or polls now. Jen changed it a couple weeks or so ago due to bandwidth issues.

Wes- 'attachments' require you to be a Contributor. You may still link to a hosted pic.

If you have needs, e-mail me a pic and I'll hlp out.

640x480, or smaller, please.

Hay Jen - RE: attaching pics..........

Jen:

For some darned reason, I cannot attach pics unless I use a third party host. It just ignores them, and I am forced to use Printroom and Hunting-Pics - whom absolutely trash the resolution.

Either I am retarded [a possibility], or there is some some sort of bad mojo in the ether for ol' Gaspipe.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Hey Pipe;
I did'nt even know we could attach pics
I've been hosting them on my own web site
and linking them here.
Maybe you can if you are a contributor?

hmm.... not sure what the problem is. Try again here to post something like one of the FAL logos at the top of the page inside the IMG tags and see if that works.

Para,

I had thought maybe it was just some forums after I read your post, but I can't attach a pic in any forum, not even the Images one.

I just went and d/l'd myself an FTP program and will use my gazillion Mb's of webspace at work.

If you are not a contributor to the Files, you need to have your picture hosted on the Internet.

1. First, upload your picture to a hosted server space. (For instance, AOL allows each screen name a couple of megs of space for uploading files, or see: Online Photo Resource Guide™ for other options.)
Be sure to note/copy the URL for the uploaded picture.

2. Open either a Post New Thread or Post Reply window.

3. Type in your text, and when you want to insert the picture, click on the IMG button as shown in this graphic:



4. A small User Prompt/JavaScript Application window will open with:
----
Enter the text to be formatted:
[ IMG]xxx[/IMG ]

and an entry field which starts with:
http://
(paste or type in the URL for the hosted picture in this field)

----

5. Click OK and the image 'coding' will be inserted into your post.

NB: You can check how the graphic looks by clicking the Preview button below the posting window.

6. When the post is ready, click the Submit button below the posting window.


If you are a contributor to the Files, you can upload a picture/file with your post.

1. Make sure the file you want to upload is of the right size (102400 bytes max), and type (valid file extensions are gif jpg png txt zip bmp jpeg).

NB: You can use MS Photo Editor to edit a picture. Search for 'photoed.exe' on your computer. (On my WinXP, Home edition, MS Photo Editor is found in: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\PhotoEd, but the app needs to be chosen by using the 'custom installation' choice for XP -- the normal installation does not load it.) Also, many people like to use IrfanView. Please see Post #49 on the next page.

2. Open either a Post New Thread or Post Reply window.

3. First type in the text you want to have with the picture (the picture will be added at the end of the post and you can only add one picture per post).

NB: When the text is ready, click the Preview button below the posting window to make sure the text is as you want it. Once you enter the file name to be added (instructions following) and you click the Preview button again, the file name to be uploaded disappears from the 'Attach file:' field and must be reentered.

4. Click the Browse button near the bottom of the posting window [Figure 1], below, to the right of Attach file: (Please observe that the information about file type and size is noted in this area of the posting window)

5. A Choose file window will open.



6. If the choose file window opens with the List icon selected [Figure 2], click the Details icon [Figure 3]. This will give you the size of the files as you look at them. (Please note that of the two circled files, only the second is of the right size to upload, the 235KB file is too large.)

NB: The above illustrations were made on Windows NT. In Windows XP you would click the 'View Menu' icon and then select "Details" from the dropdown list:


NNB: If you are using Netscape instead of IE, the window will be called 'File Upload' instead of 'Choose file'.

7. Select/highlight the file you wish to upload to the Files.

8. Click the Open button.

9. Click the Submit button just below the posting window and your post should contain the picture/file you wanted to upload.

NB: Remember that if you click the Preview button, the file name will disappear from the input field and will need to be reentered.


[Edit moved the "If you are a contributor..." explanation into this thread from Post #5 of the 'Any FREE photo hosting websites?' thread
and
corrected a post number to comform with the new merged thread]

posting pics

I looked at everything in search, etc, but I still don't know. I am a contributor, but when I use the attach picture feature, nothing posts, I am just taking them from "my pictures" on my computer. Any suggestions about what I am doing wrong? In English?

Thanks,
Mike

Pics cannot exceed 102400 bytes in size. Resample/resize to an acceptable size. Remember JPG files autocompress and decompress, so the stored size is what matters. Make sure you 'BROWSE' to capture the pic from the folder, and VOILA!

posting pics

I know this has probably been done to death, but I can't find a good description through the search function. I've tried posting photos lately, and have posted them in the past. Apparently I'm doing something wrong though. I go to images, hit "post new topic," type in the text and subject, hit the browse button and open the file from "My documents," which conatins the photo, then submit thread. I've checked the image size, and I'm a contributor. What am I missing?

Pic posting woes

Kind of a slow day so I have been browsing various photo sites and picked out 2 interesting (to me) photos to share on the board. The first time I posted I mistakenly attached the wrong photo to my text so I went back in using edit and deleted that post. I then re-posted using the correct photo. Now, when I try to post the other photo with my correct text I get the message that I have already posted that photo before and for me to avoid posting the same photo twice. I changed the name on my photo and it still won't let me post it, even if I go to a different forum. No big deal, I guess. The world will not come to an end if I don't get my photo posted but I just thought the problem was curious.

The Files remembers picture sources and data, and cares little about the name. So resize the photo a bit, or trim it to get rid of superfluous staff.

Prevents 'stacking' the Files by aberrant DOS hackers.

Odd. I'll get Jen to work on it: she IS the webmistress extraordinaire.

Are you having trouble using the 'Attach File' radio button? Or does it say you've already posted a pic of that (yadayada)

PS- I use XP sans problemes.

For additional information, you can go to the Reference and Data Section's Eureka! All the FAQs of the R&D Forum, at your disposal thread and click on the Photos & Pics: How, Where, Who... link.

I've checked the image size, and I'm a contributor. What am I missing?
You're not hosted. Since you're a Contributor, use the ATTACH FILE function, not the IMG button.

I cannot find the photoed.exe file on windows XP. How do I reduce the photos to a smaller size to fit?

I use a program called Irfanview to resize my pictures. It is a free program that can be downloaded at their site http://www.irfanview.com/ . Here is a short tutorial that I prepared for another user a while back.

Hope this helps. 99.9% of image editing needs can be done using the instructions below. Play with the other options under the "Images" menu as time allows. They are not neccesary but are sometimes fun to play with.

[list=1]
Resizing (For Posts)
[*]Open image in Irfanview[*]Under the “Image” menu select the “Resize/Resample” option, a new indow will appear[*]At the bottom of this window, make sure the “Preserve Aspect Ratio” is checked[*]Change the units option of the left side to “Inches” (something that is probably more familiar to you)[*]Resize image to a size that you feel would be suitable to reduce file space (a 50% reduction in image size will reduce file space by 75 percent)[/list=1] [list=1]
Resizing (For Avatars)
[*]Same as above but select “Pixels” instead of “Inches” and resize to required size allowed by site for your member status.[/list=1][list=1]
Isolating A Section Of An Image (ie Cropping)
[*]Open image in Irfanview[*]Draw a box around the section of the image you would isolate by clicking and holding down the left mouse button at the upper right-hand corner of the section you would like to isolate and dragging the mouse to the lower left-hand corner of the section you would isolate.[*]Release the mouse button[*]Under the “Edit” menu select the “Crop Selection” option[*]This will create a new image of the section that you just chose.[/list=1]
