Photo's in Posts

Postby whitevanman » Sun Nov 28, 2010 9:02 am

I don't have a problem with this.
I upload to a photo storage website called Webshots (although any of the others, such as Photobucket, Photobox etc will do), i then select a resize option, usually 500 pixels, then copy and paste the "embed in forum" link.

I can remember sometime ago, when the server was changed, someone posted a method using attachments. I can't find this now, but notice some of the recent photo's have been posted with this method.

I have been trying to explain to someone how to do it and wondered if this method is an easier option.

Underneath the box where you type a post, there's a list of options and another tab that say's Upload Attactment.

Click on Browse to find the file from your computer,
add a file comment such as description of your image
Click on Add the File

That should do it Whitey, but when I post photos, I upload them to my server first then past the URL into my post, which is slightly different and you'd need access to webspace and ftp capability to do that.

It took me a couple of attempts. You still have to re-size the photo when you click on upload attachment.......
