Can someone explain to me ,in very simple language, how to post photos ? The pics are in a "My Pictures" folder with IMG numbers.
How do I get them from there to the "Insert Image" box ?
Just bursting to impress with my fishing prowess, but too dumb
to make it happen......oldbaz.

Click on the "post reply" box
Click on "insert image" box in the bottom line of buttons. You should then be able to navigate through your computer to the image that you want to insert.
You may first need to resize your photos so that they are not too large, but maybe this site is smart enough to do that for you?

Hi Val, I can find the "insert image ' box & can "browse through to find the photo. What do I put in the "new file" & "description"
boxes to make it work ? If I put 'My Pictures" & the IMG
number it just seems to say "loading" forever...oldbaz

You have to 'Browse' your computer to find where your photo is stored. Then click on that photo and it will appear in 'New File'

You do not need to fill in 'description' unless you want to. That just denotes a tag at the bottom of the photo.

Your problem may be in resizing your photos. You have to get them down to 800pixels wide before you can insert them. Do you have software for this?

Probably you need to reduce the size of your photo files. Use your photo editor to "resize" your photos. If you make the long side of the photo a maximum of about 800 pixels you should be OK. Save the resized image using the "save as" button and give it a new name so that you dont loose your original big photo.

And another thing....just to confuse you even more.....it is best to make a copy of the photo which you are going to resize. Put this photo in the same file or another one and then resize the latter.

I use Arcsoft Photostudio 2000, MS software. It is simple to use especially for someone with an older brain like me...LOL

Hi Oldbaz
Depends on how many mega pixels dosn't take long to load a 5mega pixel photo but a 10mega pixel takes for ever.
If the pictures arn't resized it will do it for you. but will take a while for them to load,just select one at a time.
If you select more than one picture it will time out .
That works for me.

I don't know how to resize the photos
But may be some one will give us clue.

Rob.
I only ever made one mistake
and that's when I thought I was wrong!

Baz, if you typing a reply or a blog, go to the "Insert image" button at the bottom of the dialoge box.

2. That opens a dialogue box that gives you two options to upload a photo a) Web hosted photo or b) Upload photo.

3. select the "Upload Photo" option by selecting 'Browse' under that heading.

4. That should take you to the next dialogue box which is basically the same as a "Windows explorer" page. You just click on the "look in" dropdown menu at the top of the page and select the appropriate folder that you keep your pictures in ie: 'My Pictures".

5. This will take you to the folder with your photos in it. If it is in file view and you want to see the photos click on the tab to the very right of the folder address (It's called "file view" when you hover the curser over it ). Left click and select Thumbnail from the drop down list. The photos will now appear as thumbs for you.

6. To select the appropriate photo, double click it and it will take you right back to the original Photo select box. This time the photo address will be in the top line. Click on the line below and type the photo description you want and then click the "LOAD" button.

7. The photo will now appear on your blog or reply.

You can see the results by clicking "Preview" from the buttons below as well. This allows you to have a practice and then just cancel the answer or blog rather than submit.

If the photo is 2 meg or so it will take a little while to load. The smaller the file size, the quicker it will upload.

Hope that was clear enough.

Give it a go.

Cheers Mick

Hi Oldbaz,
When you first insert the Photo into the reply/Post, it does show up as a code that looks like this
[if]/170202.135/Forum/Pic_41[/fi]
If you preview the reply/post it will then show up as a photo.
You may have to scroll down the page a little to see your preview.

Practice an insert photo in a reply to this post. And see how you go. :)
If you happy with it then hit the Submit Button.

Hope this helps.

Another trick is to save the picture as a JPEG, which is a lot small in pixel size that other formats. There are converts about that can do this.
A program that I use to resize and convert picture with is Easy Thumbnails, free addition. You can Get it HERE Someone on these forums mentioned it one day. It a handy program.
