OK, I'm a moron, how the heck do you post a freaking photo?

I was curious what the requirements were to post photos. How big a file and so on.. I know GRID and Tosspot post some pretty big files and was wanting to test some options. But the attach options are not available to me in this area. Is that normal?

OK thanks. I'll check into photobucket, but it seems like it should be easier than that. I've noticed if you were to start a thread, or reply in other areas, and you selected the *additional options* button, you have *attach* options available. But in this test are I don't have those options. I'll PM one of those guys when i get a few more minutes to mess around in here.

Cyclops, when you are posting a reply, there is a little button, the second from the left on the bottom row of clickable buttons. That gives you image tags like (img] and [/img], so insert the URL of your photo(s) between those tags. That means that the photos have to be hosted on the Internet somewhere first. You can use this site's gallery, that's what I do for most of my image hosting needs.

Thanks schugg and Toss. I was able to get this test photo posted through photobucket, but not through the Skyscrapers users gallery. I'm sure I'm just trying to paste the wrong url or something. But it's been fun trying.....

Hey Cy...you did it!

You can also go to Photobucket.com, sign up, and upload photos.  Then, the site shows you a link to the pics below each one.

Then you come here, and when making a post, hit the little image button Image up above, then slap the link in between the brackets.

How do you make the image a bit less colossal in size? I've tried resizing before I upload, I've tried resizing after I upload. I can't do it... :cry:

On my PC I can resize images using the usual photo editor options and on Photobucket there is an option to resize photos (75%, 50% or 25%) and each time I try that and attempt to post a picture it looks like takes up the same amount of space.

I had the same problem with photobucket. I finally figured out how to use the Skyscraper Users Gallery. My photos loaded like I wanted here. I'm sure there's a way to do it on photobucket too, but I haven't figured it out yet.

My problem is I have very large files to begin with and I resize them in Photoshop. Just need to know the recipe...

Open your photo in photoshop

Click the Image tab> Click Image Size> Select your desiered size under Pixel Deminsions, usually anything less than 700 width is good. Make sure Constrain Proportions is selected to keep your original aspect ratio. click ok. 

Save As..  Make sure you save as a .jpg

And your done.

Thanks for the tip. I did adjust the image size by inches option, but *not* the pixel dimesions option. Makes sense.

Hope y'all don't mind my testing a picture post here. Never done it before. I took this picture (if it shows up) when I visited Kansas City in October, 2005.

Hmm. It didn't work. Here's the link to the site where the test picture is located:
http://my.opera.com/Roanoker/albums/sho ... ure=710574

How do I get it to post here? I put the link within the bracketed img's. But the link refers to a web page rather than to the picture itself.

Thanks for any help.

Insert this...

http://my.opera.com/Roanoker/homes/albu ... Street.JPG

in between the img tags.

You can get that by right clicking on the photo, clicking on Properties, then copying and pasting that URL ending in .jpg        you can copy and paste by right-clicking.

Thank you, Tosspot!

Since I use a Macintosh Powerbook at home, I don't have a right button to click. I figured something similar would work on a Mac. Here is is:

1. Hold down the ctrl key and click on the picture.
2. A menu will appear.
3. Click on "Copy image address"
4. The correct address is now on the clipboard.
5. Just paste within the img tags (command-v on a Mac)

Same pew, different church.

Now to decide if anyone would actually want to see these pics.

Thanks again for pointing me in the right direction!  :D
