Still learning to post

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I'v been on this forum for a little over a month. In that time, I've wanted to post 2 pictures, but can't/not allowed.
I've searched thoroughly to find out how I am allowed to post pics, but nothing is clear.
Can I be helped?

You can either upload via the "Manage Attachements" button or you can link to an image on another server by bracketing the URL for the image with img tags (vbulletin style with square brackets) like this (minus the spaces):

[ IMG ](url)[ /IMG ]

Unless it has changed ...you need to be a supporter to utilize the Manage Attachments option.

I wondered if that was the case, but I see others who are "members" who've added attachments to thier posts. That's what puzzled me.
Thanks.

You can still use the format jstraw provided...

Just to clarify, if your pictures are skiing related, you can use biglines.com to host your pics. Another site that is by subscription, but gives you unlimited storage and lots of flexibility is smugmug.com. Advantage of the subscription site, is no advertizing or watermarks. You continue to own the pictures.

Once your photo is uploaded to a hosting site where you can view the photo, right click on it and go to properties. Copy the http:// address. In your post here, use the square icon with the sun, mountain and yellow sky, and paste the url address into the space, click OK and the picture will appear in your post. You can post multiple pictures, and separate them with returns, or use text. For example, in the picture below, you can right click and copy the properties. This url (http://www.biglines.com/photos/norma...ines_49559.jpg) address could be used in any post here at epicski as a link, or surrounded by the [ img] tags described above to make the image visible in the post:

Carson spur was cleared Monday, but the avalanche lines were clearly visible from Sunday:



One more thought. Do not link pictures larger than 1024x768 pixels or they will run off the screen. They can be posted, but you need to scroll to see the whole picture, and it slows down users that use a dial up connection.

Here's another fun thing you can do. Once you have learned to post pictures just change the URL slightly and go surfing through biglines. Right Cirquerider.

You all have been helpful. I'll be working on this when I get a minute!

Sometimes it works, sometimes you get a surprise. I was checking out your theory looking at carbonissimo's picture posted in the What you Guys Look Like thread http://www.pcars.us/albums/4760.jpg. So I picked the next one in sequence, And ended up finding this :

You gotta love the internet

Prime Directive of Posting:

First post; then smoke crack. Many fail to follow this rule. They are generally known as "Chowds". Don't be one of them. Put down the pipe. Just say NO.

The picture size problem is less of an issue now. Large images are now sized-down on the fly in the html and made into a link. clicking the image will open it in a new window and if it's been sized...it will be viewable as full-size in the new window.

Good job, thanks Jstraw!

It appears to be browser-specific, fwiw... It's not doing it for Safari, I don't think...

I've done some research and I've decided I'll support Safari on a level equal to Apple's support of Safari.
