I think a sticky is in order for this post ;-)

Seconded!

It's a question that every other new member asks and while it's a good question - it's not immediately obvious if you've never used a forum before - it does get annoying for the long-termers to be asked this all the time. Jonathan's explanation is one of the clearest I've seen, too - good work!

Thirderised.

A very clear presentation of how to post piccies.
Excellent work that man!

Would love to take the credit for the explanation Stuart, bit it was Andrew's good work, not mine...

I do still have the GSA Roger, but I'm keeping it now!

I will keep my ear to the ground if you're looking out for one tho...

Good explanation, thanks. a worthy sticky.

BTW:

It's a CX I think :)

I love the lines if the Mk 1 BX too, but - if anything - I'd say the CX was an equally good contender for cool interior!

It IS a s1 Cx interior - a pretty special place to be - the Bx and Cx are years
apart but could only be from the same company! :D

The car is a Belgian registered 2.4GTi manual and imported into the UK by
a member of 2CV GB club in 1990 - my first CX!!

Adding Photos

Post by citro-geoff » Sat Mar 28, 2009 6:25 pm

I do not use Photobucket, I have a HP Photosmart system. I cannot get any pics to upload at all. I cannot find a way to highlight where my photos/scanned documents are to upload them. Can anybody suggest anything.

Looked at the Sticky and still not working, just previews the folder that my pics are stored in. Have even got the wife to take a look (she used to write computer programs at one time) and even she can't work out the instructions that are on there??

Actually, Photobucket has had a slight facelift since the screen grabs shown
so I've saved some new ones to help things along which may help you get somewhere Geoff?

1: Where you get started on www.photobucket.com - remember too you'll need to activate
a user name with password access on their system to post images. The images/video upload:

Image



2: To get a specific picture you click on the upload option which will pop up a search
dialogue to choose what you want to post:

Image



Which then uploads onto photobucket and is catalogued onto your user account where
it is viewed in two ways:

A - small thumbnail with annoying dropdown options box which plays hard to get:

Image
Image

the code required for a forum picture insert is the whole string such as:
[ IMG]http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g318/ ... ture24.png[/IMG]

*To get the code to display, I've slipped a barspace after the first [IMG)



B - a larger image filling the screen better when clicking on the previous thumbnail:

Image






3: After all that, it can be copied and pasted onto the script entry as you would any posting,
giving an end result of:

Image

The odd quirk with photobucket is their images will lock to the same width of a landscape
picture even where there is a choice of the scale so there's no chance of showing the
final picture much
bigger than the previous step B shown above it - mind, in this case it was a small size to
start with! :D

eh? Never mind!!

There are other photo hosting websites although the only other one I've used before is
http://imageshack.us/ although I prefer photobucket.

All the best,
Andrew
