This is a question that I see a lot on the forum. How do I post pictures, or size pictures properly?

Well that's a great question! It's a lot more fun to post up some pics about something you did than to just write about it. (Didn't happen if there isn't a pic, ya?)

When I came to the forum, I myself struggled at first, it had been years since I worked on threads and posts. Toodeep was gracious enough to jog my memory after my first struggles. (Thanks Toodeep.)

1. Take your photo. Sometimes that's the hardest part.

2. I suggest you edit your photo before upload. Either using the rotate or crop functions of your phone, or photo software.

3. Open a photobucket account. They are free up to 2GB's of photo storage. That's A LOT of photos of you and your pioneer.

4. Use the UPLOAD button in photo bucket to move your photos onto the world wide inter web.

5. Once you have your machine and smiling faces posted into your photo bucket library. You can select a picture by clicking on it. That will bring up a bigger version of it on your screen.

6. You can copy and then paste directly into your thread. I use that method on my desktop or laptop. On my iPad, I will use the bottom URL from the list off to the right of your picture. Copy and paste that.

7. After you have pasted that gem of a photo over to the forum and are finishing up your story or ride report. Use the preview post button. That will show you what your work is going to look like to the rest of us before actually posting. I really like that because I usually have to correct something.

8. Post it. Sit back and enjoy the adulations of the other forum members!

This is just the method I use. If you have something else that works, please post it in this thread as a guide to other members.

I use the same thing but copy/paste the img code from photo bucket right into the post.

If you have the pictures in the gallery here you can also copy/past them into the post.

Another way is in the advance posting (not quick reply) you can hit the little
at the top and upload one from your computer. It will show the file types that are supported and the size limits.

There are many photo host sites that can be used.

Previewing is a good thing to do. Some forums have a really weird time limit to edit posts, so you might not get a chance to edit as soon as you'd wish too on some forums. Hopefully this one isn't like that.

apart from using the built in image tool

the coding way of embedding photos is to use the
tags

and slap the .jpeg link in between with no spaces

For those of us who do not use photo bucket here is how I post pictures after they are loaded into my computer from a camara. First I usually have to down size the picture to meet space requirements by most forums. I do this by clicking on "paint" found on microsoft. Then I select a picture to bring into paint and use the resize icon for the picture. I usually change it from 100 H and 100 Wide to around 25. This will reduce your picture enough to post in most cases. Then save it. Then after you have written your post scroll down to the advanced features below the written post and click on it. Then follow the prompts and get the resized picture and open it. Then click the upload button in the advanced section and it will put it into your post. Click on preview to make sure it loaded then click on post.

@Grass_man all you need to do now is to copy them from photo bucket and paste them where you want in your post here.

If you need help on how to copy and paste just let me know.

Were they sideways to start with? Usually if you just open them in a program like "Paint" which usually comes with most computers and look for the rotate button and rotate them until they are straight then hit save. Then you can upload them and they should be straight.



Nice looking machine you have there!

@Grass_man if you go the "User CP" link at the top and then look on the side under "Settings and Options" you will see the "Edit signature" link.
