Thread: Tutorial: Adding Images

    Default Tutorial: Adding Images

    Can I add images to my posts?

    Yes, images can be shown in your posts. However, there is no facility at present for uploading images directly to this board. Therefore you must link to an image stored on a seperate image host, we recommend http://www.photobucket.com or http://www.muchos.co.uk You cannot link to pictures stored on your own computer.

    Uploading your images to an image host

    First sign up with either http://www.photobucket.com or http://www.muchos.co.uk you will be asked to provide details such as a username and password. Once you have signed up follow the instructions to upload images from your cmoputer.

    Adding an image to a post

    To display an image, you must surround the web address pointing to the image with [img] tags. For example:

    Code:
    [img]http://www.photobucket.com/images/myphoto.jpg[/img]
    To get the image web address you can copy the code provided by your image host. If you are not using an image host or they do not provide the code you can copy the web address from the address bar of your web browser. To do this first find the image, then right click on it and select ''view image'. Then select the address shown in the address bar at the top of your browser and copy and paste it into your message.

    Copy & Paste

    To copy and paste the web address first highlight it by holding down the left mouse button and dragging the mouse along the address. You can then copy it by pressing the 'ctrl' and 'c' buttons on your keyboard simultaniously, and paste it into your message by pressing 'ctrl' and 'v'. Alternatively once you have highlighted the address you can select 'copy' from the edit menu on you browser and then paste from the same menu.

    Problems

    If you have any problems contact us and we'll do our best to help you out.

    Have fun!

    Photobucket say this:

    Q: I only see the top half of my image - the rest is grey
    A: You're not allowing your image to finish uploading.

    Does it sound like whats happening? If so once you have hit the upload button wait for longer.

    Erm.... Tamsin, I am trying to add my signature and am copying and pasting but somehow it won't work, can you help, please? You can see from the duff signature what is there but it isn't working. I must ask Shantel if she will update it anyway as half my bumbles aren't on there!

    Harriet , Charlie, Sebastian & Robbie at the Bridge but forever in my heart.

    I *think* the problem might be the image format, .bmp isn't a format thats usually used on the web. I've converted it to a different format and emailed it to you, so try that and see if it works. If not more head scratching is needed

    Hi Tamsin

    I first of all congrats on a fab website, i wish i was as clever!

    I have an email that has been sent to me with pictures of my rabbits, is there any way i can transfer them to photobucket or directly to my Rabbits united account?

    please keep any instructions really simple!

    Thanks Keri

    I'm not sure what a RRH account is but you can follow the instructions above for photobucket. You'll just need to add in the step of saving the images in the email to your computer first. This can usually be done by selecting them (click on the image), right clicking and choosing the 'save image' option.

    If you get stuck you can forward the email to me along with your account login details and I'll do it for you
