Uploading Pictures

Postby Wolfie » Wed Oct 09, 2013 6:51 pm

To upload a picture (or other file) from your PC, click on "Upload Attachment" below your Post window then click "Choose File" and navigate to the attachment (file or image) on your PC double click the file to upload and then click "Add the file".

The file can be left as a Paperclip or if it is a picture, it can be placed inline, an alternative is to use the IMG button above the text window and link to an image already on Photobucket or similar Picture Website.

Note that there is a file size limit of 1.1 MB and 4no. per post.

Using MS Paint to Resize an Image

Large images load slowly, check the properties of the image file to see how large the image is.
Don't resize the original image, resize a copy. To resize the image copy:-

Right click on the image file in the File Explorer, select "Open With" Paint.
Select "Resize" on the Home menu bar
Select the resize by "Pixels" button
Ensure "Maintain Aspect Ratio" is ticked
Change the Horizontal or Vertical size, approximately 600x800 is good for forums (or 800x600 for landscape)
Select File >> Save As to save the resized image.

There are also a number of online re-sizing sites that will do this process automatically for you.

An alternative for quick picture hosting is https://imgbb.com. Upload your pics then copy and paste the BBCode links into your post.
