Title: Help! How do I post photos please?
Post by: Wild Rover on December 20, 2012, 12:43:42 pm
Hi all - being quite technophobic, I can't work out how to upload pictures to this site. I click on the 'Insert image' icon, but then nothing appears to invite me to upload an image from my computer.

Any advice gratefully received - then I'll hopefully eventually show you my bikes....Ta! :)

You cannot upload images to the forum. Host them elsewhere and link to them on the forum, as per the instructions in point 5 in the second post on this page (http://yacf.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=367.0), entitled 5. How do I post an image in a message?

Thanks rr - don't know how I missed that on the search.

Ah well, all a bit too technical for me I'm afraid. I'll just have to stick to text.

No it's not if you take it one step at a time.

1.  Create a free account at Photobucket: https://secure-beta.photobucket.com/register

2.  Upload a photo to your Photobucket account.

3.  View your photo at Photobucket.

4.  Find and copy the IMG code link.

5.  Paste the link here.

(It doesn't have to Photobucket).

Given how often this comes up, worth a seperate sticky?

(I find it a bit of a battle, even knowing that it's in the FAQ somewhere! )

Go to the photo on Flickr, click share and copy the BB code in the box. You will end up with something like this.

My stoker Dorte said this could be the way!

I had used HTML code instead of BBcode!

^ Got that via viewing the full size photo, then right-clicking to copy image location URL: http://ridewithgps.com/photos/large/876897.jpg

I think a URL must be suffixed with .jpg (or dot other-image-format) for the image to appear on this forum, to explain why http://ridewithgps.com/users/251856#photos/910917 didn't work.

(http://ridewithgps.com/photos/large/910917.jpg)

^ That by copying the above URL and amending the number.

That's not a link to a photo. You need to open the photo in the site, right click on it and select 'Copy photo URL'. That will give you something like this (note the .jpg file extension).
http://ridewithgps.com/photos/large/876897.jpg
Paste that in img tags, hence:

Hello!
Why can't users post photos directly from their PC?
Does anyone know of a photoblog site that doesn't demand you hand over all rights to your photos in return for setting up an account?

Hosting photos on the server would involve much, much higher bandwidth, CPU, storage and therefore cost than this server (supported and maintained by voluntary contributions) can provide, that's why in common with just about every similar site, photo hosting has to be elsewhere on the web.

There will be someone along in a moment to talk about Dropbox, Google photos allows you retain copyright over your photos and share exactly what you want. In fact, I suspect that most other than Flickr, facebook, Pintrest and the like which try to make money out of your photos are similar.

Linking from Dropbox seems rather temperamental. The only successful way seems to open the image in Dropbox; right click; copy the image address and paste between the "img" tabs, but don't add ".jpg" to the end of the link.
Any thoughts?
Title: Re: Help! How do I post photos please?
Post by: fuaran on July 03, 2016, 08:04:34 pm
For Dropbox, you can click the share button then "Get link". Then edit that link to add ?raw=1 to the end.
Then that will be the direct link to the image file, so it will work in the img tags.

Ok I have some pics up on Flickr which does not seem to give the right click for the URL. So... I highlighted the info in the address bar and that gives this:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/61480276@N04/37481502482/in/dateposted-public/

If I then click the infamous image button I get this: FFS.. should have been ithe bracket and the img img

So I then do this: argh the preview shos it but not the post... it should be the bracket and img then the link then the bracket and img.

And am left as usual a bit disappointed. What please is not happening as it should? That image is shrunk by Irfanview to something in the order of 400 x 500 ish.

PH, In Flickr, bring up the photo and click/tap the "Share" thing to the right of, and slightly below, the image.  Choose "BBCode", copy the link and paste it into yacf.  NB: the "copy" stage doesn't work if using Chrome on an iPad.

Hm. Flickr declare my a/c full too - and I thought they were going to give me 1 Terabyte when they launched this !

Can I post from Dropbox, without paying for a pro version ?
Or is Imgur foto site of the moment ?

I've got a photomyne account too (which I do pay for)
Being old, I don't  really want to learn a new software
