Adding Photos to Posts
« on: September 26, 2008, 08:58:25 am »
There are 2 ways (that I know of) to post images on this forum.

The first - which is easy if you already have an account such as flickr or Photobucket, or have your own blog.

Once they are in these sites you can usually right click on the photo and find properties - copy the address (URL:)  and then, in the body of the message you can click "Insert Image" (second icon in middle row) when you are at the spot you wish to place the photo, position the cursor between the [ img ]    [ /img ] characters and hit paste.  The URL should appear between the [ img ]    [ /img ] boxes. Then check with Preview.  If you like it you can then Post.

The second method - which is easier - now that I have told baf65 to do the above - click on  "Additional Options... " below the box you are writing your message in and "Attach" comes up as an option - there is a box to enter the address on your computer or internet where the photo is to be found (& of course the "Browse" facility - to make life even easier).

This way allows you to attach photos without flickr/Photobucket etc accounts and is much simpler !!!!!  :-[

Thanks Termomixer - Can you also tell me how to reduce the file size of a photo please?  I'm having trouble posting as my photos are too big >:(

Depends on the program you use for the photos, but if you open them in Paint or similar there are options to reduce the size of photos in the Image under Stretch/Skew -you can reduce to 50/40/30/20 % or whatever suits.

Let us know which program you are using.

You can set up a Picassa, Photobucket account -free and then use the URLs to post??

I L B, all I do is, right click on the photo, then find edit, then up comes the photo and down the left side there is a bit which lets you change its size, I choose small, and then save changes. It then works! My DD showed me how, won't be long before your DD will be teaching you too!

Thanks for bumping I love Bi,by - I couldn't find this anywhere last night

Is there anyway we can make this a sticky thread so it stays at the top?

ralo, I'm not sure what the notify button at the bottom does, but just clicked it and hopefully that helps.
When I get around to cooking something else that requires a photo I'll look this up again, until then it's just going to sit here... LOL!!

Thanks. You're right - the notify button means that I get emails each time someone replies....

obviously it takes great talent to not be able to locate even a sticky thread :)
