Posting photos easy guide

Post by hammy » Mon Mar 03, 2008 1:38 pm

First take your digital photos and get them into your computer

Then upload them to a photo website, I use photobucket.com which is free

Once uploaded resize them to 640 by 480 pixels (photobucket has a nice easy menu to do this)

Next setup your message in the forum and type the URL of your image on photobucket into the page. The easy way is to copy and pate the URL from the picture on photobucket which will look roughly like this:

http://s221.photobucket.com/albums/dd19 ... eSwiss.jpg

This will need editing slightly as the bit after jameshammyhamilton/ is not all needed so get rid of the ?action=view&current= bit leaving:

http://s221.photobucket.com/albums/dd19 ... eSwiss.jpg

Finally highlight the URL and click on the Img button at the top of the message editor which should give you this:

Code: Select all

[img]http://s221.photobucket.com/albums/dd190/jameshammyhamilton/MoreSwiss.jpg[/img]
Or without the code bits to allow you to see what to enter:

Alternatively you can post URL link to a picture using a similar process only this time once you highlight the address click the URL button

This links to a photobucket image that I have not shrunk to 640 by 480 of the same pikemen

I think the original post I did of this was lost in the Dec 2008 outage, so it's probably worth sticking my idiots guide to taking photos of miniatures in here.

Also anyone registering for the Ancients Photo Directory on www.madaxeman.com can upload photos to there that can then also be used on this site in the same way photobucket works.

The actual url of the photo is http://www.madaxeman.com/15mm/albums/ar ... GP1777.JPG, or it can be seen here
