How to post pics on LBG forum

#1 Post by Jdl973 » Thu Jul 15, 2010 2:52 pm

In order to post pictures on this forum, you must use a web based image storage serve such as

Photobucket
http://photobucket.com/

Flickr
http://www.flickr.com/

just to name a few. I use Flickr, so that is what I will be using for this demo...

Step 1: Upload your photos to the web service. See their page on how to do this. Most sites will allow you 200 images for free

Step 2: Open the image in the web application. In Flickr, you need to select the "All Sizes" button:

Image

Step 3: A lager version of your picture will appear. At the bottom of the page there will be a link to that picture. Highlight and copy this link to your clipboard (Ctrl + C for all you Windows users)

Image

Image

Step4: In the LBG post, at the top, select the "Img" button once. You will see the brackets where your cursor was....

Image

Step5: Paste the link to your picture between the brackets...

Image

Step 6: Select the "preview" button at the bottom of the post to make sure all your links are good.

That is all there is too it.

Note: If you delete an image in your web storage page, the image will be deleted (dead link) on the LBG post

Jason - you should make this post a sticky so it can be referenced.

How do you do that Rob, or is it an Admin function (Sean?)?

Its a Admin function.
I also recommend showing how to post pics off Photobucket as well.
Nice FAQ.

Lupulin Threshold Shift
lupulin threshold shift \lu·pu·lin thresh·old shift\ n
1. When a once extraordinarily hoppy beer now seems pedestrian.
2. The phenomenon a person has when craving more bitterness in beer.
3. The long-term exposure to extremely hoppy beers; if excessive or prolonged, a habitual dependence on hops will occur.
4. When a "Double IPA" just is not enough

Is there anyway to have the forum auto resize pics? Other forums I post to have this feature. This allows two things.

1) Keeps pics at a manageable size so load times are decreased
2) Keeps from having to use a program to resize ourselves so they fit better on the forum

Thanks.....

If you give me an example, I can work it out.
