Default How to: Post Pictures

To post an image...

1 - Whatever you want to post has to reside on the web somewhere, which means it needs an http:// address, where and how it is hosted is up to you.

2 - Once you locate the Site, Video or Image that you want to post you do the following:

Step 1: Copying the http:// Address or URL
- Site: Copy the URL in the address bar at the top of your browser.
- Video: Either find something that says Share or Embed in Website, click on the URL that pops up and Copy, or right click on the image of the video, go to properties and copy the URL.
- Image: Right click on the image, go to properties and copy the URL.

Step 2: Pasting the URL that you copied into your post or thread
- Click on New Thread or Post Reply
- In the dialog box that pops up, right-click and select paste. it should look something like this: (http://thisisanexample.com)

Step 3: Making the site, video or image you posted visible and useable within the thread:
*NOTE: I am leaving spaces between the brackets [ ] and the letters url or img, this is being done so that you can see what it looks like, when you actually do it, DO NOT leave spaces.
- For Sites and Video you put this at the beginning [ url ] and this at the end [ /url ], for example [ url ]http://thisisanexample.com[ /url ].
- For Images, same deal, just replace url with img

That should do it… Now, next step.
<O></O>
To be able to see the images in a thread...

After logging in, got to the "User CP" up in the menu.
Go down to
"edit options"
Now scroll down to...
"Thread Display Options" and find "Visible Post Elements"
and check the box next to"Show Images"
"Show Images (including attached images and images in [IMG] code)"
The scroll down and click
"Save Changes"...
And if the person did the "insert image tag" correctly, you'll be seeing images. This should also allow you to post pictures as images rather than links, using the "Insert Image" icon.

All set!

Using the [img] tag does this:



To see the image within your post you have to use the HTML code that looks like this:

Quote:
&lt;a href="http://s16.photobucket.com/albums/b5/francis-marion/?action=view&current=5882517-2.jpg" target="_blank">&lt;img src="http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b5/francis-marion/5882517-2.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">&lt;/a>
If the image is not on a regular photo hosting page that provides HTML code for you then you can clean up the above to remove the link and mouse over title code to:

Quote:
&lt;img src="http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b5/francis-marion/5882517-2.jpg">
Then right click on the online image and select Copy Image Location and paste it in place of the http link between the quotes in my example. The quotes are necessary for the code to work.

If you use the HTML code it will appear like this:

<a href="http://s16.photobucket.com/albums/b5/francis-marion/?action=view&current=5882517-2.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b5/francis-marion/5882517-2.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

You can also click the Preview Post button before submitting to make sure it looks the way you want it to.

originally posted 04-05-2010, 12:55 PM - updated 14 January 2012


Since my original post many changes have taken place in the software that drives Photobucket and the CMP Forum. It is likely many more changes will come in the future. This post brings my ancient post up to date (for now).

Apparently YES. I do not have a FLIKR account but I accessed a photo archived there and copied the properties below.
[http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1270/4692553493_32eedbeb95_t.jpg]

When that link is entered in the Image Dialog box you get this thumbnail picture. I'm sure if you are a flickr member you have access to a higher resolution for posting your photos.

if your account is not set up to show the pix, you'll just get a link.
so you have to go into your UserCP (user control panel) and check that box..

To be able to see the images in a thread...

After logging in, got to the "User CP" up in the menu.
Go down to
"edit options"
Now scroll down to...
"Thread Display Options" and find "Visible Post Elements"
and check the box next to"Show Images"
"Show Images (including attached images and images in [IMG] code)"
The scroll down and click
"Save Changes"...
And if the person did the "insert image tag" correctly, you'll be seeing images. This should also allow you to post pictures as images rather than links, using the "Insert Image" icon.

the link works and gets us to your album..
but if you want to post a certain pix directly..

See the link under a pix called "direct link"
copy that from you album.

Than see the little icon above where you are typing the text for your post..
the

icon , click that icon, and past the "direct link" you had copied from your album , into that new little box that popped up after you clicked on that icon.
