I'm new and would like to post some pix of my fish. Could someone tell me how to do it? I have a digital camera and pictures on my computer. I just don't know how to get them on here or on PhotoBucket. Thanks for your time and help. Annie
Hi, you don't need to use ImageCave, PhotoBucket, or any other image hosting service here because we allow members to host their own images.
Simply click "Upload picture" when posting. The picture choosing box will pop up. Click "choose" to locate the picture file on your computer and once it is selected click "send". You should then see the image. Click "standard" insertion type and the picture box will close. You will see a line of text in your post that looks something like this:
When you click the "Preview" button below the posting window, you will see that this line of text actually inserts your picture which is now stored on the server. It may sound complicated to do, but you will find it is pretty simple once you've done it once or twice.
Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance,
PS: Your img tag will have a bracket on both sides, [ ], but I left some off of the example so that it would display the code instead of trying to render a picture.
Usmc is right; Paint is useful for resizing pics, but you won't be able to maintain aspect ratio automatically, so it could end up a little out of scale. If you have certain programs, like ACD In Touch, it will allow you to resize your picture while keeping it in scale. But if you don't have a special photo/picture program installed on your computer, Paint will work just fine.
Thanks for all your help. I just can't get a picture uploaded. When I press the 'upload picture' button, I get 'error on page'. If I type the URL into the browser, I can get to my picture files and select one, but then the messege 'done' comes up and it' just a blank page. It must be my computer--or it could be me but I doubt that-lol. Anyway, thanks.
What's the format of your pic? jpg? It cant support bmp or bpeg.
It's strange that you keep receiving a message "error on page". Have you tried using other computers to upload the pic? Could be only your pc not working on the uploading.
I actually purchased a program ($20 USD) call iWatermark that allows you to watermark your photos, rescale the image, reduce the file size at one time. You can do photos individually or batch process them. I found iWatermark becuase I wanted to watermark my images so nobody steals them and I noticed it's other features.
You don't need paint, adobe, or cave to edit your pics. I have been using irfanview for years. It's free. With it I resize and crop pics, reduce the quality for quicker uploads (you don't need a 5 megapixel pic for web display) and lighten and darken the image for clarity.
