We have had a few questions lately on how to post photos in threads or add videos.

So this thread will take you through the various ways in which you can do so.

The following tutorial video shows you how to 'Upload a Photo' in a thread


Sometimes a file will not upload if it is to big, that is because we have to put a limit to avoid it taking up too much of the forum resources, so it can be necessary to reduce the size of the photo you are uploading.
To do this you can use 'Microsoft Paint' software onm your PC or try soemthing like http://www.imageoptimizer.net/Pages/Home.aspx

With Microsoft paint:

Open Paint
paint1.jpg

Click File>Open
paint2.jpg

Find the Photo you are looking for on your computer using the sidebar to navigate

paint3.jpg

Select the photo you want and 'Open' it

paint4.jpg

Once Opened. Select File>Save As. Save it as a new JPEG.
paint5.jpg

The file will now be compressed enough to upload using the instructions in the Video.

That hasn't worked, have you read our posting photos video? An easy way to do it is click on the photo you want to post and hold the mouse button down, then drag the cursor into the reply box - you should see "move here" then release the mouse button. After a few moments, you should be given the option to post the full image or a thumbnail. :tu:

The only thing I can see is go to your video, click on the "direct" button, it will go tellow and show "copied" then come here, in the reply box right click, paste and enter. That will give you a link. When members click on the link, that will take them to your video like my post. ;)

Hello,
I read this to find out the answer too and I am glad you all took the time to answer. The insert image URL put me off a bit as I did not want to join photobucket as I have so many accounts now, however after following Boss Hogs link to photobucket, I do not mind their site at all. That is a pretty fancy car. Must have been time consuming to paint due to all of the taping up to do. Thank you again. Byeee

Hello,
I watched the video on how to upload photos and Ta-Dar! It works, or at least I hope it does. This is the hutch I brought my two girls from Bunnngs Hardware in Australia. The wording, ' Upload File" threw me as I thought that would be a Word Doc or PDF file or something like that and not a photo. The photo icon in comments threw me as it took me to photobucket whereas my blog just goes to both options. Thanks again for the advice. Byeee

Thanks, don't worry about the painting, its all done with adhesive backed high visibility panels which are removed when the patrol car is decommissioned prior to resale. ;)
