How do you add pictures to a post?

Thanks, Deron.

Thanks, Deron.


Quickest way is to upload images to the ES server, to do this use the 'browse'
button below the text editor (the box you tye your message in) this will open up a window viewing files on YOUR pc, navigate to the pic you wont to display, click 'Ok' the name of your pic will appear next to the 'browse' button...simple click the 'add file' button and your done, the pic will show in your post...

The only way I know how is to put them on something like photobucket. Then when you scroll over your pic in PB it gives you an option to copy as a direct link. Then when you are posting you click the Img link above, then put your cursor where the blinking line is between where it says [Img Img] right click and paste. Then you can hit preview instead of submit to see if it worked..

Aussie you are the man. much simpler than my method.. I might add that the img. has to be less than 512 kb At least that is what it told me when I tried. I use Irfanview to resize mine. It lets you reduce an image by half without losing much quality. You can reduce by half over and over till you end up with avatar size pic if you want..

ES admins will hate me for saying this but of the two approaches - linking to an image hosted elsewhere versus uploading the image itself to ES as msg attachment - when uploaded to ES the image is never "lost" from the thread. Plenty of old threads here that display only broken links `cause the source image was moved or deleted from the other site (sigh)

Yeah, when I wore out my laptop, I lost all my resized versions of pics, but viola there they are archived at ES. Sweet. When I need to post yet another pic of how I did my battery rack, there it is. I know it's lame, but I just use the windows paint to make my pics small before posting. Shooting small helps too, so I set the camera on 2 megapixel. Then I reduce to 45% and they usually fit.

Using the ES browse method allows easy placement of the pics wherever you want on the thread, and previewing just in case it's the wrong pic, or placed wrong.

Other methods may allow a better look at tiny details, like the writing on controller components, etc. It would be nice if high res pics could be posted right on ES, by permission, for a good reason.
For those that still don't know, I work online, for E-bikekit.com

I rarely use the ES pic hosting i have my own server access so dont use up the ES storage space, that said, Big Kudos to ES powers that be for allowing image hosting on the site, it must be taking up some space on the servers HDD hence the lower image size allowed i guess? If every member started uping 2-3mb HiDef images it would fill a drive up pretty quick...keep in mind folks, its a feature not alot of forums allow for, it makes it extremely easier for the not so computer literate members of a site able to display their images with ease...Top job ES .....

Second that of course... This phpBB forums software is some of the nicest I've seen as a user... My only wish would be that it had a separate images library area as seen with vBulletin3 software, like here:
http://www.boatdesign.net/gallery/

The distinction with vBulletin is that the images are uploaded to the users own pictures area then linked to in messages, but more importantly the images are tagged and tags are searchable... With this phpBB software, images in threads can sorta get "lost" after a while...

If I wanted to insert a photo called "WhyCyclistsWearBlackShorts.jpg", I would

  • Select the "Upload attachment" tab
  • Click "Browse" and navigate to the .JPG
  • Once "Filename" is populated with the URL of the .JPG, click "Add the file"
  • Add a reference to the file thusly: [img]WhyCyclistsWearBlackShorts.jpg[/img]

For some weeks I was doing this, but it was not working.

But I just tried it on a test thread and it worked.

So maybe there's some variable that I do not know about.

Try not adding the reference and also hit the "place in line" button

Want to add pictures? It is better to upload directly to ES, IMO.

Start with great freeware:
Modify, annotate, composite with GIMP.... cross-platform, better than Photo$hop.
Batch convert many images easily with Irfanview... fast, good compression algorithm.


Regarding display in posts:

This image is small enough (<800px wide) to display without an IMG tag. It is an attachment, placed 'inline'.
IMG_3728_xsm.jpg
This image is 600x450
IMG_3728_xsm.jpg (80.06 KiB) Viewed 38851 times


The next image is bigger than 800px wide, so it needs to be added as an attachment (below) and displayed using the IMG tag, but the IMG tag needs the attachment location (not the original filename):
Code: Select all
[img]http://endless-sphere.com/forums/download/file.php?id=57072[/img]
Also, big and wide images can push out the right side of the table and make visitors scroll to see paragraphs that extend as far as the picture, which can be annoying.
Image

IMG_3728_sm.jpg
This image is wide (900x675) and displayed above using the [IMG] tags shown in the code-window above the image... Right-click on the link to copy the image location when using the IMG tags.
(96.05 KiB) Downloaded 12 times


The next image is very large, and should be simply left as an attachment, since display will be much bigger than most screens. Its file size has been reduced in GIMP to the allowable attachment size, (<512kb). The forum's PHPbb software generates the thumbnail (small image) if the filesize is over 250kb. The thumbnail can be clicked for full resolution.

Edit: repaired broken images.

That's what I was missing: the proper citation of where the image is.

Why I got it to work on that test post escapes me.... but now I know the right way.

Thanks for the clear and complete instructions.

Having to scroll posted images is way annoying

Postby v_tach » Tue Mar 23, 2010 5:24 pm

Maybe its been covered but is it new within the last few weeks that we must scroll to view many of the images posted? Is there a way to make the window a little larger at least so reasonably sized images can be viewed without having to scroll, say maybe 800x600?

Don't scoll then. If you click on the image it pops up to full size...click again to return to the scroll window.

I use photobucket.com, I can upload all the images at once and the [img] tags are ready to be pasted into a post. set the size to 800 pixels wide so they fit the forum correctly and every picture you upload will be converted automatically. Takes about 5 seconds to post an image(assuming you have already uploaded it and are logged into the photobucket account).

With exceeding annoyance, I find that I can't add an 800x600 picture without having scroll bars or duplication:
- If I add it as an inline attachment, it gets scrollbars.
- If I add it as an attachment with [img] tags, it displays nicely, but I get a duplicate at the bottom of the post.

One workaround would be to post the photos as attachments in a dummy thread somewhere no-one reads, then use [img] tags where I want them, but that's dodgy as...

Anyone have a (proper) way around this?

Switcitching to "subsilver2" style in the User Control Panel>Board Preferences will eliminate the scrollbars, but it has a different panel layout (better IMO).

Download pix resizer its free and rezsizes bulk pics in one hit for you.

http://download.cnet.com/PIXresizer/300 ... 07499.html

For posting simple click the browse button underneath the text editor (where you type your posts) Find the pic on your pc click on it, then click 'open' then click the add file button couldnt be simpler...

KiM

p.s when resizing pics make them no larger than 600x600 and they will display as an image in your post not a link to the image.
