How to Post Pictures.

Postby salt6 » Sat Jan 03, 2009 10:46 pm

There are two ways to post pictures. Host them elsewhere and link to them or upload them here. So a short tutorial on how to post pictures.

PART I

This will not work with photos on your home computer!

If you host them on a free host, all you need to do is get the address of the picture and paste it in the message box. This can usually be done by right clicking the picture. You should also be able to copy the url from the info box next to the picture. Understand that there might be a limit on the bandwidth you get each month.

This method will also work to show picture from other websites.

Right click the photo for this,

Image

Then select properties to get this,

Image

Then copy the Address (url),

Image

Then paste the code into your post,

Image

Then hit submit,

Just go to the bottom of the post text area and find the attachment tab.

Use the browse button to find the picture on YOUR computer that you want to post.

Photobucket is beginning to charge to link photos to other websites. If you use Photobucket and do not have copies of the photos you have stored there. I suggest you download them before you get their letter explaining their pricing policy to host your photos. The cost can be really outrageous especially if you want to link to another site.

Several years ago when I was first asked to help rebuild the pics on this site I stated "Please put the pics on this site". Say What??
In the last ten years or so we have a LOT of photo hosting sites come and go. Folks would post their pics to their hosting site, then this or that, some anti-gun, so your free 4years are up, to ---- just now out of business..

Well this site is still Here.... Most pics posted to this site are still here... Ok, some pics (before my time) were lost during a site upgrade one time. Over 10 to 12 years ago. Other than that pics posted here are still here.
Folks I know that your pic hosting site might be what you are used to or it's hard to post pics on this site.
Whatever if you are going to be kind enough to share something with us then PLEASE take the extra time to learn and use this sites software and post on this site. In talking with John we have the room to host the pics.

PLEASE post the pics to this site!!!! Or we look forward to seeing a lot more of the above.

More on how to post to this site and such on a later time.

How to Post Pictures. 07/2017

Please if you are willing to share a pic then PLEASE post it to this site.
Really so many have been lost using 3rd party pic hosting sites.
Here is how to do it. Ok I don't know how to do this off a cell phone yet, I'll work on it.
1st take a pic, get it into your computer, jpeg works real well.
2nd look down under this box and find a tab marked "Attachments" click it.
3rd next click the "add files" box
4th now you might just be in your hard drive on your computer, if so hunt down that pic that you want to post, click it and it will upload.
5th now click the "Place inline" button.

6th now if all went well then you should have added a line something like
(attachment=0)"your pic name.jpg"(/attachment) NOTE I used ( ) not brackets which are for code.
7th that's it. click the preview button and check it out. Now you can cut and paste that line to move the pic where you want to place it. Like it??? Now click the submit button so the rest of us can see everything.
8th problems??? post your question or pm me or pm John

Yes that's my mg42 and some of my stuff. I shot both 8mm and .308 that day.
