Posting Photo's and Links to other site's

How do you get a photo to post to a forum reply or a link to another web site (example,where you purchased an item from a different web site)and want to share with others. Also I have pictures on my EVO smart do I get them to an reply or make an album to show other's. Thanks having problems with this subject!

I use two ways routinely.

One: I use a free web photo site like Webshots

Flagstaff pictures from travel photos on webshots

Then use the "publish to Forum" selection to copy the hyperlink and paste it into the text box of the thread.

Two: If the photo, PDF, or Document file is on my computer, I use the paperclip button (Attachment Manager) next to the "Happy Face" on the message tool bar.

Be careful with this one, because there are limits to how big the attachment can be "by file type." PDF files can be much larger than DOC files for example.

How to add photos to a post
  • Click reply and scroll down to bottom of text box.
  • Click "go advanced" add text to message window and then scroll down.
  • Click "Manage attachments" A separate window will pop up.
  • Click "browse" Then select the file to be uploaded. Be sure that the photo is appropriately sized. 620 x 620 pixels (or smaller) and no more than 50K. Forums software will automatically reduce the size, but smaller size photos will upload much faster. You may select several photos to upload at the same time by repeating the last step.
  • Click "Upload" After pics have loaded close the pop-up window
  • Click "submit reply" to mount the text of your message - photos will automatically appear at the bottom of your post.

How to embed an image stored on another site:
You can do this by using image tags. Upload the image to a service like imageshack and then copy the URL of the image and put that between [IMG] tags. That will work well, as long as the host site stays in business and doesn't disable your image for overuse of bandwidth etc.

You can also paste in the location of a photo stored here in a photo gallery.

To do this: Paste the url of the image into your post. Then add the following code on either side of the url (with no extra spaces):

[IMG]url here[/IMG]

The image will appear where the url was in your text.

I cannot take credit for the above information. It is a quote of post #7 from the following thread:
