Info regarding using pictures.

Post by Tetris on October 11th 2011, 11:22 pm

We only have a total of a whole 20 MB of space available on here since it's a free site. I don't have the cash to upgrade for more storage, so the only thing that we can do is to post links to pics that we want to share. They will show up as a normal picture, they will just have to be located somewhere else.

Sorry for the inconvenience. Still, better that FBs discussion boards where all we would see is a link.....

As I stated above, space for images on here is non-existent. But we can link to pictures that are hosted elsewhere and they will appear in your post. This is so much better than just having a link that we have to click on. If you have FB pictures that are set to public, you can use link to them. Or you could sign up for one of the many free image hosting sites that are out there. I use Photobucket, and have no issues. Please DO NOT link to photos that you have not uploaded yourself to SOME website.



So here is a quick rundown on how to post images on here.

1. If you are using a picture sharing site for your images you might have an option to get the IMG code for posting your picture. If this is the case, you can just get the IMG code, paste it in the 'Reply' field and post. You can also add text before or after the link, just make sure you don't type IN the link. Hit the 'Send' button and your picture and any text will automatically post.

2. If you are not using a picture sharing website, you'll need to get the address of the image you want to post. You should be able to right-click on the image, select 'Copy image address' and then use it on here. Above the 'Reply' field, there are several small icons. The middle button in the second set is for uploading images. Click the box and a small window opens. Paste your pictures address here and hit 'ok.' The address with the appropriate coding will appear in the 'Reply' field. Add and text you want before or after the coding for your image and hit the 'Send' button. Your picture will appear with any text you added.

Again, please DO NOT link to pictures that you have not uploaded yourself. If you want to use a picture you uploaded on FB, if will have to be set to public on your FB account for it to show up here. All pictures when linked on here will be re-sized to fit within the page. Pictures that have been re-sized to fit on the forums will have a option to view the full-sized imaged at the top of the picture.

Any questions, thoughts, suggestions, feel free to post.

Cheers!!
