Help! How do I post photos please?
« 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, 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?

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

Was it something like this? Why doesn´t it look right?

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.



^ 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).

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.

Yup.  That works for me now.  It didn't previously.
