Uploading Images (Updated July 2017)

Postby Godders123 » Tue Oct 20, 2015 10:47 pm

To add images to your posts you will first need to upload your images to a hosting website and then embed the image code within your forum post. To the less technically minded this may sound a little daunting but it's quite straight forward once you know how. There are many websites that you can use to host your images, below are some examples together with step by step instructions on how to use them.

Alternatively, if you capture your images on your smart phone you can use a forum app called Tapatalk. Tapatalk is by far the easiest way to add images to your posts as you will see from the instructions below.


Imgur

http://www.imgur.com

You’ll need to create an account (it's free) and upload your pics (obviously).

1)To add images, the quickest way is to simply drag and drop images directly onto the home page. Alternatively, hover over your account name (top right) to reveal a drop down menu, then click on images.

Image

2) Then simply click on Add Images. Either drop and drag images or use the browser to locate and add your images.

Image

To embed an image in a forum post simply follow these steps:

1) View your images by hovering over your account name (top right) and then click on images (as explained in point one above):

2) Click on the image you wish to embed within your post. A series of codes will be listed to the right of the image. The code that you need to copy is the BBCODE. Simply click on the BBCODE Copy button.
Image

3) Paste this code into your post
Image

This is the final image posted via Imgur.

There's also a bit of nifty functionality allowing GIF's to be created from video.

Flickr

http://www.flickr.com

You’ll need to create an account (it's free) and upload your pics (obviously).

To embed an image in a forum post simply follow these steps:

1) View your images as shown below:
Image

2) Click on the image you want to embed within your post and then click on the “Share photo” arrow icon at the bottom right hand corner
Image

3) Select BBCode from the code options, then using the dropdown menu select the size of the image (Medium appears to be a good size for the forum), then copy the code (either a right click on the mouse then selecting copy, or press Ctrl+C)
Image

4) If the full code is pasted into the body of the message then each image will include an image tag
Image

5) To remove the image tag, delete the code that’s wrapped around the image coding - only the image will then be posted
Image

This is the final image posted via Flickr.

I've just tried photo bucket following the instructions above and it works a treat (I normally use tapatalk) so if I can do it there are no excuses.

A great piece of work Graham that will help all :clap: :clap:

It's a good app tapatalk isn't it Ste. The TIMELINE view is particularly handy and uploading images is as easy as it gets.
