In order to help us keep the memory usage on the forum within acceptable norms it is recommended to upload your collection of pictures to an Image Hosting Website. By doing so, you also keep all your photos in one place so you can then share them with friends and family or re-use them on another forum again by simply coping and pasting links to your pictures.

I have used a few of the free to use sites and have pictures hosted at more then one. At the moment I am using http://www.photobucket.com. I have found this site to be the easiest to use of the one I have tested.

To create an account go to http://www.photobucket.com and click on the "JOIN NOW" button. Fill in your new user name and password details and on the next page your personal details and click the "I ACCEPT SIGN ME UP" button. That is all that is needed to create your now account.

To upload photos to this site is easy. You can simply upload everything into the main album or if you want to keep your photos organised you can create "Sub Albums" for your different sets of photos.

To create a Sub Album is easy. You simply type the name of the new album in this block and click "SUBMIT"

Image


Select the Sub Album here:

Image

Click "BROWSE" to select the photos to upload and click "UPLOAD" to start uploading.

Image

This screen will appear when uploading:

Image

The larger the file sizes to more time it will take. Refer to this article viewtopic.php?f=21&t=295 to see how to get your file sizes smaller.

To now use your uploaded photos in a post on this forum or when doing a PM is easy. Simply click on this box below the picture you want to use, to copy the necessary code.

Image

Then go to the posting you want to use the photo, select the position in the text where you want to place the picture and paste the code (press CTRL+V)

Image

This is all there is to it.

Enjoy sharing your photos.

Hi Simon,

Try keep the sizes to no larger than 640 x 480, which is a nice size and doesn't hog too much bandwidth.

Simon the size is good just as it is but you must compress it more to get the file size down so that we can all save on bandwidth. See this article on compressing and resizing.

viewtopic.php?f=21&t=295

By compressing at 70% I brought the file size down to 110k without noticeable difference in quality.

Sorry, just needed to test the upload.

Easy enough to also just right click on a photo, go to properties, highlite the URL, copy it, and paste it in your post. Highlite it in the post and click on the Img button.

The URL should look something like this http://lh5.google.com/gumbootkuun/RtfKK ... imgmax=512

and [IMG] should be infront and behind the URL

Yes, but the last image will be preceded by a slash, thus:

([img])http://whateveryouwant.com/123xyx.jpg([/img])


In the example above, the round brackets () at the beginning and end would be removed for the actual link.

Click op die direct link lyntjie dat hy blou word (highlight) en terwyl hy blou is druk Ctrl + C.

Druk dan net Ctrl+V weer aan die kant

Ek het agtergekom PhotoBucket is lately temperamenteel. Soms moet jy twee keer op die text click voor hy copy somtyds moet jy Cntl+C gebruik soos Cassie genoem het. Dis vanaf hulle die website aan hulle kant ge upgrade het met sy nuwe voorkoms of iets wat ek dit optel.

Ditto... en waar mens voorheen al die foto's se links ens onder aan die fotos gesien het (album view) sien mens dit nou net as jy jou muis oor die betrokke item beweeg. :evil:

I've downloaded photo bucket and resized my pic to 640 x 480 but it seems to still come out larger than I'd like.
Will have to play around with all these new sites a bit as the I used a different program before.
I hope I get this right!

My fotos is op Photobucket en oor die algemeen 700 wyd. Baie is ge"crop" so die hoogte verskil.

Ek sien die forum vat niks groter as 640x480 nie. Is daar 'n manier om dit kleiner hier te post sonder om alles te gaan resize, weer op te laai en weer alles in my report te gaan in paste?

Ek is aktief op meer as een forum. Dit is egter maklik om die report eenkeer te skryf en met almal te deel, maar lyk my ek gaan die hele oefening moet oor doen om dit hier ook gepos te kry?
