Make sure you keep the images somewhat small, I always resize everything to be 800 px wide at the most.
Quote from: sequoiaranger on May 18, 2009, 09:32:52 AMI have to confess I am a bit intimidated by the off-site photo-upload system most people seem to use here. I **REALLY** liked the forum's own system, but (sigh) I guess that is history now. Can someone "walk me through" a typical posting here using an off-site photo repository, so I can have a chance at doing it right?
Quote from: John Howling Mouse on June 06, 2009, 12:31:03 PMHere is the text I e-mailed to Wes a little while ago. It's overly detailed but I think even a computer novice can follow it like a recipe and it should work even if one does not really understand the steps in computer terms:For the sake of what I hope will be clarity, I'm going to assume you are relatively new to computers and the internet for these instructions. You may already know some or most of the steps below. Go to www.photobucket.comRegister online for the "free" user account version. If asked about auto-linking to your third-party preferences such as Facebook, MySpace, etc., simply leave those blank (ignore and skip).Once registered, uploading your images to Photoshop (Photobucket) and linking from those uploaded images to other websites (such as What If) is very easy. On your Photoshop (Photobucket) album webpage, there is a box saying "Upload Images & Video"Ensure selection for choosing files is "from my computer" then click the "Choose Files" button.Browse through your computer files the way you normally would and select whichever files you want to upload. Like on most programs, you can select multiple files at the same time by pressing the "Ctrl" key while you left-click with your mouse on each of the image files you wish to choose. When you have selected the one or multiple files you want to upload, click on the "Open" button at the bottom right of the Photobucket window (or, if the "Open" button is already highlighted, simply press "Enter" on your keyboard). It will take a moment to upload a couple of normal-sized image files (each, say, 150KB size), longer if you're uploading more than a dozen large files at a time.Once the upload is complete, you will see either:1. a listing of each image that was uploaded with the opportunity to put tags and descriptions on it (this is a new feature for "Pro/paid" accounts so I don't know if "free" accounts see this; if you do, ignore it and select "Go back to album" or the "Album" button) (yes, it now happens to free accounts too: wish there was some way to stop it, but I havn't found one yet...)or you might see:2. your original album again Either way, you want to get back to your album page. The images you uploaded will be tiles there as small preview thumbnails. Choose an image you want to display on another website (such as What If) by moving your mouse over the image but do NOT click on it. Once your cursor is hovering over the image, a drop-down box will appear with four ways of linking the image (little descriptions with some computer text next to them in a white field). (You can change your preferences in Account Options: Album Settings: Link Options so that these boxes appear all the time, without needing a mouseover)Always select the option at the bottom of the four: IMG Code by left-mouse-clicking the white field of computer text next to it. (You can also change your preferences in Account Options: Album Settings: Link Options so that ONLY the IMG code box appears - handy 'cos you get more pictures on each screen....)Now, Photobucket had a handy feature for awhile at this point but it doesn't work on my computers anymore: a single left-mouse-click on the white field of computer text next to "IMG Code" used to auto-copy it. You'd even get some text pop up, telling you "Copied." Now, I have to single-left click the field to select it and, once highlighted, I then right-click my mouse to open the Windows options and select "Copy" (alternatively, you can substitute Ctrl and C buttons at the same time for the same copying function). (Think this is the same for everyone now - I've never had the auto-copy function) Leave the Photobucket website open only if you will have more than one image to link, otherwise you can close it. Select a new tab on Internet Explorer to open your destination website where you want to post the image you've just copied. Go to your destination website where you want to post your image. In this example, we'll say it's the What If website.In your "New Topic" or "Post Reply" window, type whatever descriptive text you want, then, when you've reached the spot where you want to insert the image from Photobucket, right-click and choose "Paste" from the Windows option (or you can substitute pressing Ctrl and V buttons at the same time for the same pasting function). Some computer gibberish will appear in your textbox now. This "is" your image and it will appear as a photograph the rest of us can see once you hit the "Post" button. If you want to test view it first, you can use the "Preview" button at the bottom of the What If text box. If it looks right, simply hit the "Post" button and you've now uploaded your Photobucket images onto What If without the limitations of filesize on What If (and using less bandwidth from the site, too). If you want to add more images in the same textbox, repeat the steps above using other images from your Photobucket account. etc...
