Small Tutorial "How to Post Pics"

Post by OIF_VET » Sat Dec 31, 2005 11:12 am

Am feeling bored, to a degree. And I know I have been asked a couple times, "How do I post a picture?" or Something to this effect.
Soo, I took some Screen shots from Imageshack (The Free Picture hosting Site) http://www.imageshack.us
Soo. I hope this Thread Will help some Folks who may want to post Pics but Were "Too Afraid to ask" or Just didnt know.

Soo...once ya get to Imageshack.(Open it in a "New Window" Right Click the Link and then open new window) This will be alot easier later on.
Once you get to Imageshack, you will see this screen. ( am using FireFox as my browser)

Image

So. Now U have gotten to the Site, Now clheck the Boxes, if ya want to, I do. I use Both Boxes checked 1 removes the Image Size and the other is for Sizing purposes. I like to use the Optimize w/out resizing.
Next U will want to "Look for your Picture" So U hit the Browse Button. and this screen will open (U will need to Know the location of the Picture)

Image

Sooo...U find the Picture, I right click it and "Preview" to be sure it is what I want. I then click "open" Button, the Window will then drop and U will now see some text in the "Search" Box, Now hit the "Host it" Button.
Once the Image is finally uploaded, U will see this Screen.
Right Click The Text that U see in this image as Blue. "Copy" this...Now we go to this Forum, and New topic or reply...in the Message box that is opened, Right click and "Paste" the Image coding into the message field.

Image

Once you have pasted the image U should get a result like this, once U have hit the "submit" button.

Image

For those of U who had no idea, I hope this Helped.
Have fun :)

Great work! And remember people, this is for any forum, not just the Pictures section. So whenever you get a new hermie, and post in the "New hermy" section, be sure to add pics.

The possabilities are endless :o (You can post pics of your hermies streaking, but not of you streaking, sorry) :wink:

How do you make it so ppl can click on the small image to view it larger? Mine don't seem to be clickable.

EDIT: Oh wait, I figured it out :)

That's funny. This crabs name is Good and she rarely ever comes out either! This was just after her molt and I guess she felt like showing off... but next time I got her out she wouldn't come out... sigh. :)
