Okay, I use photobucket and when I click the "image" it works fine but brings the big picture right into the post. I like the guys who use the thumbnails and would like to do that. Thing is, when I click the thumbnail link in photobucket it posts the thumb in the post but when you click on it hauls you all the way back to my photobucket storage. My storage is public and nothing bad in there but I would like it to work like many have where you click and the thumb and it pops up the big pic without going back to PB each time.

 

HELP

Click on "more reply options" at the lower right of the reply screen. 

Click on "choose files" at the bottom.

From your computer, click on the photo you want to attach.

After it's uploaded ... click on the message where you want the thumbnail to go.

Click "add to post".

Voila!

I think I got it with the help of my kid. Works slick and don't even need photobucket,, but sure loads slow on bigger files. 'Course I have to wait for pics to load in PB anyway.

 

Thanx a lot, 

Nick

 

ps...that second pic of the fly box is Cracklebacks ranging from 12s on the top to 24s on the bottom. I don't think you'd use 24's very often.

I always reduce the picture to about 600x400 for posting.  Then, when someone clicks the thumbnail, the larger picture still fits in the frame.

it loads slower in photobucket because you havent resized the photo prior to uploading

 

i always resize my photos to 600 pixels wide prior to uploding to photobucket and never need to use the thumbnail image code

So ... I had another member ask about posting thumbnails.  Here's an SBS for it.

Click the "more reply options" at the bottom of the reply box.

uploading pictures 1.jpg

 

Click the "choose files" button at the bottom of the advanced reply box.

uploading pictures 2.jpg

 

That will put you into your computer.  Look up the photo you want to upload.  Click on it and the "open" button, or double click the picture.

You can upload as many as you want, before you start composing your post.

As you write your post, you can "Add to Post" each picture where you want it.

When you are finished ... click the "add reply" button at the bottom.

And your post will now have all the pictures as thumbnails and clicking on them will open them to full size.  Please reduce the size of your pictures before doing all of this.  600x400 pixels will give you a good size photo that won't be too large for the screen when someone opens it.

After battling with computer problems, I have a new computer, and it's not letting me post pictures as I used to do. I may be downloading pictures from the camera differently from what I used to do. I connected the camera to the computer, and the camera appeared in the file manager as a storage device. I copied the pictures from the camera to the Pictures folder and then tried to post to the forum, but I'm told the picture is too large. With my old computer, it only took a few seconds to post a thumbnail to the forum. Any ideas on what I can do to solve this problem? 

 

Thanks

Flat Rock Native. I was just replying to this thread. Is there another thread, begun by you, about posting pictures to the forum? Mikechell said something in this thread about reducing the size of the picture. Do you know how to do that? 

 

Thanks

I never used to have to do anything to my pictures and it's the same camera and I'm putting them in the same "Pictures" folder on the computer. I don't know what has changed?

Bream, new thread yesterday went way off topic... Inconoclastic Irreverence Oh the Calumny....  It turned into a good lesson on posting pictures.  Check it out!

Where is it? What forum is it in? Site Help And Suggestions? Swaps & Contests? The Lodge? Etc?
