How to post pictures ?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Can someone help me with posting pictures on this website. Already wasted over an hour now. I've reduced both the size and pixs and the largest that I'm trying to post has 72 KB with 600 x 321 pixs.

Store your pics at an outside website like, then insert a link to your pics in your post. That's the best way to post big, high quality images.

Re: How to post pictures ?

Maybe I can help. The best way I know of is to upload your photos to a FREE website that allows you to share them. My personal preference is Picasa Web Albums & I wrote a how to article about that here.

Once you've done that you select the file you want to post here, and right click on it to get a menu box which has a choice to see either of these.
"view image info"
Once you select either of those you need to COPY the image's location (may require more than 1 step but it's easy to figure out AND PASTE that string into the box which opens when you select the little ICON above that looks like it has a mountain in it (second from the right) The file string should look something like this

At the front of that string delete the S in https, (it makes the file secure so it won't display) AND change the pixel dimension to 1024. That's specified in this part of that string.


DELETE the numbers 640 (or whatever follows the s & replace them with 1024

INTO the box and then do all of that again for each image you want to share.

Re: How to post pictures ?

I'm a longtime Flickr user, so I'll put up some instructions for that.
  1. Get a Flickr account and upload a photo - the instructions are on the site
  2. Select the photo and click the Share button:
  3. On the share page, (a) Select Grab the HTML/BBCode; (b) Choose a size; (c) Select BBCode; and (d) Click the generated text once and copy it to the clipboard (Ctrl-C for PC users, Command-C for Mac):
  4. Paste the code into your message. You'll see something like this:

    I usually just keep the first part of the text (highlighted in the above example) when posting.
