Picture/Image Sizes: MUST be 640 x 480 pixels or under. It is understood that not all sizes of images can be resized exactly, but if this is the case, you must attempt to get the pixel dimensions as close to 640 x 480 as possible. Sizes deemed to large by Administrators or Moderators may be removed from posts.

 

Follow this, to upload your photos to the forum for use in any post you make:

  1. Join Photobucket and click "Join Up- It's free". Fill out what is needed and upload your pictures by logging into your account. It is a very safe and user friendly program.
  2. SIZE is a big issue with photos so remember to adjust this before beginning. In the upload box it has "reduce to". Here you select the size you want your photos to be. Due to the new size allowance, selection and uploading is now a lot easier. Simply select the size as 640 x 480 pixels (large). This means once they are in photobucket you can post them directly into our forum.
  3. To choose the photos you wish to use, click on choose files, and you will be directed to your computer files. Select the files you want to download and click open. The files will automatically start uploading to photobucket. If you have a lot to upload at once, you can use the bulk uploader. This link is found just below the the normal uploader.
  4. Once your photos are uploaded Photobucket, scroll down until you see them and click edit. This will take you to the new edit features. In here, you can crop, change colours and do almost anything to your photo. The most important feature is the RESIZE. If you forgot to set the correct image size before uploading, you can do it here. Click on this button and enter your dimensions. Remember to tick the 'keep proportions' box so your photo wont be warped. If your photo is rectangular, like most regular ones, just make sure that the longest side is 640 pixels and the other one will automatically be smaller. Click save and either overwrite existing image or save another copy.
  5. To go back to the main photobucket screen, click on "albums & uploads" (top left hand corner)
  6. Now comes the fun part... adding a photo to your post. Go back to the forum making sure you keep your photobucket page open. Either start a new topic, or reply to one. When you want to add a picture, simply scroll down to the picture you want to add and click on the IMG code. This will copy it. Then go back to your post and paste it there (either ctrl v, or right click and paste). When you preview your topic or post it, your photo should come up and be the correct size.

You can use other photo uploading programs, just remember the code to put into your post is always IMG. It can be annoying when you have to click on numerous links to view members photos, just because they can't be bothered resizing or don't know how. Often members will by pass your post and not even read it because of this. Please try to keep to the size limitations and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask any of the staff. We are happy to help if you are willing to have a go and follow the rules.

Thats very helpful Kaz. I didn't know you could resize your images as they are uploaded. That makes it a lot quicker and easier :D

It shouldnt matter what computer you are using, you still have to upload to a photohosting site like photobucket in the same way as described above.

I have my pics in photobucket, but I cannot find the IMG CODE. Am I looking for that in photobucket or the new post? (Some days are more blonde than others.)
