Right hopefully this will work

Go to the top of the box when you post and click on Img

And it should look like this [ img ] * [ /img ]

Go in to your photobucket and in the top right hand corner of your pic you will see a cog, hover over it and a box will appear, one of the topics is share. Click on it.

You will then see 3 sub menu's along the top of the box 1) social networks, 2) Email, 3) Links. Click on Links. You then want to copy the direct link address.

You then paste the address between the image tags [ img ]http://i773.photobucket.com/albums/yy20 ... y/2013.jpg [/img ] (like this but without the spaces I have done at each end of the address).

When you do it right it will look like this

Hope this helps

Darren


Thanks Darren, that is a good explanation.

If you must attach photos to your post can you please resize them? I've found the ideal size to be 1024x768 pixels (It might be better just to change the horizontal size to 1024 pixels if the aspect ratio is different). The advantages are that the resized photos are a smaller file size (about 300KB) and you don't lose picture quality. You can easily resize photos with the Windows paint program and Microsoft offered a free program which resized photos.

I use 'Imageshack', you upload your pic, choose the size ( I use 800x600) and copy/ past the 'forum link' straight onto your post.

Can't get much simpler than that.

The problem is with iPhone users, they upload their images as attachments, they are far too big. Yet nearly all of the image hosting sites have an App for uploading (with a facility to resize), if users were to do this rather than uploading attachments then it would make those viewing the images so much happier.

Bloody youngsters and their fancy gadgets eh, back in my day when everything was black and white, except the servants they were just black, we had to send a telegram to ask the local artist to visit so he could draw a family portrait, it would then be sent off for framing took bloody months just to get one decent picture hung on the wall, that's if that workshy handyman was sober enough to hang the bleeding picture in the right room.

I made this guide before for another forum but thought it would be helpful posted here.

Here's a quick guide for you I've mocked together. Others can use it in the future if they wish!

First of all head over to photobucket and log in. (On the basis of having an account - If you don't create one by going to "sign up")

Image

After logging in press the "Upload" button on the top of the page.

Image

Next up press the "choose photos and videos button".

Image

From here a pop up will open where you can locate to the particular photo you want to upload. In this example I will use an old picture of my spit. To select multiple images just hold down the "ctrl" key on your keyboard and individually clicking each image you wish to upload.

Image

When done press "open" and then it will start uploading the images.

Image

This will display when all images have been successfully uploaded.

Image

Press the view uploads button to go into your "bucket" on photobucket. (This image shows the picture I just uploaded.)

Image

Select the image you want to put onto the forum and then on the right hand side of the screen you will see some links. You want to press the IMG one as displayed.

Image

It will say "copied" when you press inside the box. This means that the link for that photo has been copied and is ready to paste onto the forum.

Image

Then go onto the forum and into the reply section as you normally would. Click in the reply box and right click then "paste". Or hold down the "Ctrl" key and then press the "V" key.

Image

When you post your reply the image will automatically display. However when just in normal reply mode you wont see the image displayed, just the code.

Image


Louis.

Thats a great guide Louisw, I found PB a few months ago when Imageshack decided it wanted to charge me for downloading.

I posted this as a separate thread I thought it would be useful in here as well.

Anyone who has been following my thread has probably seen the photos that I take.

One example being this, a load sensing valve for a Sprint:

Image

I am a photographer (apparently not amateur any more because I know what I'm doing now!! :lol: ) and felt that taking time to produce good quality photos made me think more about the part that I am refurbishing and also provided a good reference for other people in the future if they wanted to know how something is broken down.

All of my photos are stored on Flickr and are copyrighted to me in the MetaData and because they are public photos I have also started watermarking them, I'll be going through the old ones and doing the same, this is something I should be doing as best practice because they are public and is by no means a result of anything going on here.

I know some of you guys have been using them to answer questions, that's great and it is one of the reasons I make sure these photos are publicly viewable and searchable so I thought I'd say this to make sure that everyone's happy and clear if they want to use one!

Registered forum users have permission to use my photos on this forum (http://forum.triumphdolomite.co.uk/) either by linking from Flickr or by copying from my restoration thread.

All I ask is that you quote me as taking the photo if it's not watermarked.

If you want to use one elsewhere just drop me a PM. :)

To access them you can either look at my restoration thread here:
viewtopic.php?f=19&t=27969

Or you can access the Flickr album here:
https://www.flickr.com/gp/91407512@N00/810dQX

Or you can just click on one of the photos.

When I have finished my restoration I plan to copy all of these images to a disc and send them over to the club.

Thanks all!

James

Just a random photo and nothing to do with Dolomites or 1300s, but I just wanted to try the new "add image" button. :D
Image

Looks like there is only the one size?

No you an have any size you like, the first box you see gives you a flip down choice. The thumbnail always comes out small but if you click on it, it will come up the size you have set. Just been playing with it myself!

Thanks Steve, and Galileo, makes perfect sense. Thumbnail for the forum, click on the image and it takes you to the hosting site with a photo as big as you'd like to show. Perfect. :D
