posting pics

Since there's been some questions lately as to how to post pics, I figured I'd post how I do it. *DISCLAIMER* I'm not a computer guru type, this way just happens to work for me and there's probably better/easier ways to do it.

I use a cheap POS Kodak Easyshare digi-cam set on the highest resolution setting. I upload the pics to my pc and use Microsoft Picture It! Photo Premium 9 to re-format the pics I want to post to 800x600. There's other photo software that does the same thing, MS just happened to come with my pc.

Once re-formatted, I upload the pics to http://photobucket.com you'll have to start an account there, but it's free. Once you've uploaded pics to photobucket, you can right click on the "direct link" box underneath your pic and copy it. Click on the "insert image" button when you post a new thread or reply to a thread here. A dialog box will come up, delete the "http://" that shows up in the box, then right click and paste, hit "OK" and you're done, pic posted. Hope this helps.

If it still gives you fits(like it does me at times)pm me the pic and I try to post it.

Rob

Great post, you can also upload pics directly to your post by clicking the "manage attachments" button" in the additional options below your reply/post.

And they show up as thumbnails, you can click on the thumbnail and copy the address to then paste into your post. The sizes vary but I think you can upload 5 pics, just less than 200k each per post.

Another option is that as a member of this site you have personal gallery space you can upload photos to and be able to share anywhere which you can't do with uploaded thumbnails, only logged in members can see uploaded pics to your posts.
This reminds me, I need to fix April BOTM pic I put on the front page, I used a thumbnail so unless your logged in it doesn't display. I'll save the pic to my gallery and edit the April BOTM thread.

I learned something today.

You can upload high resolution photo's to the gallery but linking the pics to threads are restricted by size. If you upload a picture to the gallery you can link to 3 different sizes. The mini is the thumbnail size, not good for showing pictures, medium and large. I just had to use the medium size for an uploaded pic about 1 meg so it would link correctly.

Thanks, hope this helps as it took me a few minutes to figure this all out.

Great looking Nomad, Phil. I see your a neighbor- my wife lived in both Medford and Medford Lakes growing up. We've been living in Mount Laurel now for over 18 years . Did you get the bike at Cycle World or Mt. Holly Kawasaki? Hope to see ya on the road.
