Pics posting tutorial
Started by: hieronymous (1755) Report abuse
Perhaps Brian could 'pin' this?

This is for those who don't know how to post pics or are having trouble doing so.


N.B. There is an error in one of the screenshots where I have typed

[/url]

at the end. This should be

[/img]

1. If you haven't already done so then you'll need to open an account with a pics hosting website such as

Photobucket

ImageShack

Flickr

This tutorial is based on Photobucket since it's what I know and am familiar with.



2.Once you've opened your account you can start posting pictures.

First, you'll need to upload your chosen picture to the pics hosting website. Using Photobucket you'll need to click on "Upload now":




3. After clicking on "Upload now" you will see this:




4. Click on "Select photos and videos" and it will open a window into your computer. Like this:



It should open a window into "My Pictures" though sometimes you may have to navigate there.

5. Select your chosen picture by clicking on it (it will highlight in blue) and then wait a few seconds for the upload to complete. For the purpose of this tutorial I've chosen "BUG level 69"

Once that's done then you'll see this:



Click on "Save and continue to my album".


6. Once done you'll be faced with this:




7. If you hover your cursor over the pic a drop down menu will appear:





8. On WW it's necessary to use the "Direct Link" so place your cursor over the "Direct Link" code, left click, and the code is copied into your browser.


9.This appears to be the bit that is tripping people up. Unfortunately you cannot just paste the code, you have to do a little typing as well. Return to the WW reply box and type:

[img="



Ensuring your cursor is correctly positioned to the immediate right of the " right click your mouse and select "Paste", whereupon the code will be "pasted" into the reply box:



Complete the process by typing, at the end:

"][/img]





Once that's done you can post and your picture should appear in your post:







I hope this is clear and is of help.

to the clever clogs on here easypeasy , to a thick head like me no,last time i copied paste all my ruddy personel details came up .i will have to print out all your info and go step by step, dont expect miracles

Posted by: hieronymous (1755) Report abuse
ecmdj,

Step by step is the way to do it. I found it very frustrating when I first tried.

Do you know what "tabbed browsing" is? It would save you having to print off all that info.

Posted by: ecmdj (8186)   Report abuse
hieronymous .dont laugh, i know what tabs are, and browser ,but tabbed browsing no .i bet my grandson at 4yrs knows what that is

Posted by: hieronymous (1755) Report abuse
I'm not laughing. I remember only too well the strugglements I had when I first started.

I think it's possible that you do know what "tabbed browsing" is but are just unfamiliar with the term.

However, it will depend on what browser you're using (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, etc.) but I think they're much of a muchness now. I'm using the latest version of Firefox so my explanation is based on that.

I have 5 tabs open at the moment:



"Mozilla Firefox Start Page", "Inbox-'BT Yahoo! Mail", "Arcade", "Wigan Message Board", and "Pictures by Hieronymous"

If I want another tab I simply click on the large plus sign to the right of the tab "Pictures by Hieronymous" and another tab will open. I just need to click on any of those tabs to go to that particular page.

The point being that, if you have three tabs open:

1. The above tutorial

2. Photobucket (or whatever you've chosen)

3. WW Message Board reply box.

then you can go from one tab to the other without the need to print the above tutorial. You'll have to keep your mind on what you're doing though.

Hope this is helpful. Sorry if it appears patronising but I have to assume that you don't know.

Posted by: rbilly (10576) Report abuse
you will have to email brian and ask him to pin it for you as i would like to no how to do it as well. i have some pics to put on

Posted by: ecmdj (8186)   Report abuse
not patronising one bit , that simplifies things ,im on mozzila firefox

Posted by: hieronymous (1755) Report abuse
My apologies.

I have just noticed that in one of my shots I have typed [/url] at the end. This should be [/img] of course

I'll edit it.

Posted by: cindy (5532)   Report abuse
hieronymous Dont want to complicate matters but I only use the direct link for url, For still pictures I press properties.

Posted by: hieronymous (1755) Report abuse
Doesn't matter cindy. This is for those who don't know how to do it or are struggling. As I once did.

Posted by: cindy (5532)   Report abuse
heironymous Any ideas how to put Microsoft power point slide shows on, You cant do it on photo bucket.

Posted by: hieronymous (1755) Report abuse
I'm a frayed knot, cindy. Power Point isn't anything I've ever really bothered with.

Might investigate though.


Edit: Just had a look at Photobucket and it looks like you can create a slideshow in there. Click on "Tools" then "Slideshow".

Thank you, Brian.

Just spent 2hours tryin' the said instructions! managed to get a photo saved on Photobucket, but gettin'it on here is summat else!! Gone 11 now, an' I'm switchin' off b4 I launch the bloody keyboard thro' the window! G'nite, all.

Posted by: hieronymous (1755) Report abuse
Tony, try and stay calm.

Before you paste the code you need to type

[img="

Then paste the code. At the end of the code you need to type

"][/img]

Don't forget you can't see your picture in the reply box - just the code. The actual picture will only appear upon posting.

Check the instructions below the reply box.

.thankyou so much for all the info you are providing. tomorrow will have a go

heironymOus,
I think that is one of the most useful threads posted on here, so many members want to post their pictures but can't get their mind round it,, and to have it put on as a "sticky" is great, in the past I have posted the line of code you get from "Photobucket" and how to alter it, but it gets lost by being lowered down and out of sight because of the amount of post that come after. I have even been able to refresh my memory with your sticky post.
Thanks.

PS aak Brian to each of the other topics as a sticky, please
Fred.

Posted by: hieronymous (1755) Report abuse
All I'm trying to do is to help those who don't know how to post pics or are struggling with it. As I said, I well remember how I struggled in the early days.

It's a bit more awkward on here with having to type those bits of text before and after the code but, I'm sure, if people take it easy and bit by bit they'll get there.

Thanks for the kind comments though.

Fred,

I don't fully understand your p.s. but all you have to is e-mail Brian and ask him. brian@wiganworld.co.uk

dave,

Have you copied the right code in your initial attempt? You need the "Direct Link" code.

Also you have to do a bit of typing i.e.

[img="

at the beginning and

"][/img]

at the end. I seem to remember dustaf saying that the inverted commas/quotation marks weren't necessary but I always put them in.

Let's see what happens if I copy the code from your second attempt and type those bits of text at the beginning and end:




Edit: That doesn't seem to work. You must have copied the wrong code.

Posted by: hieronymous (1755) Report abuse
This is the one you want:

Posted by: hieronymous (1755) Report abuse
[img="[IMG]http://i184.photobucket.com/albums/x314/davemarsh100/DSCF2701.jpg[/IMG]"][img]

This would have worked with the "Direct link" code and the stroke before the last "img" i.e.

[/img]

Posted by: hieronymous (1755) Report abuse
I think I've just twigged what you're doing, dave.

You don't copy from the address bar. Hover your cursor over your chosen photo and you'll see a drop down menu. Copy the "Direct link" from in there.

Posted by: rosbott (198)  Report abuse
hieronymous,
Sorry I didn't explain what I meant.
What I should have said was.
Ask Brian to put your post as a sticky on, Places, People, and WiganWorld.

Check out Wigan World, "trying something"

Posted by: hieronymous (1755) Report abuse
Dave,

Yes. You're using the wrong code. The code that works in the forum (IMG code) won't work here. Copy the "Direct link" code (second one down).

Before pasting the code type

[img="

Paste the code

At the end type

"][/img]

Do anyone know this lady

Posted by: rosbott (198)  Report abuse

Posted by: hieronymous (1755) Report abuse
The answer to your question, rosbott, is - as far as I'm concerned - no.

Dave,

I can only guess at what you're doing/trying to do so, in an attempt to assist I'll break it down.

Type

[img="

Paste the Direct link code

Type

"][/img]


Make sure there are no spaces and no characters missing. Just one character missing will prevent it from working.

Picture should appear upon posting.

I could not possibly try all the above it looks like a minefield and not only that but have enough problems at the moment with the printer so cannot even print the instructions off, but thanks for all the info one day when the printer works I might try it

Posted by: hieronymous (1755) Report abuse
It looks worse than it is, elizabeth. I just tried to make it step-by-step. No real need for a printer (though I can understand why), just open different tabs and refer back.

The main thing to remember is to type those bits at the beginning and end of the code as explained under the Reply box.

MMMmmm I was trying to put this photo into the album section,hope the owner does'nt mind, I just cleaned the photo up a little, removed the sellotape marks and creases and strengthened the exposure, unfortunately I cant post it into the same place as the original in the Album page

Posted by: hieronymous (1755) Report abuse
It may be a different system on the "Album page", tracey. If you can post a link I'll have a look.

Posted by: tracey (303)  Report abuse
Thanks, not quite sure which link you wanted, so heres the link to the photo in my photobucket acount:

and link to the photo on the album page:

Thanks

Posted by: hieronymous (1755) Report abuse
Ah! I see now what you're trying to do.

I don't think you can do that. I think it says on the Home page of "Photos of Wigan" that you can only use your own photos.

Why did my photo not get published?


Edit: Yep! Note these rules:

Hieronymous
You are a nutter, you try to show how smart you are, then you give so much complicated information people get confused if you look at the above line of code I have split it so that it does not show the pic of the butterfly, so when you get your code from photo bucket, change the beginning and the end as shown to give you your pic from photo bucket.beginning [img=" End gif"][/ img]

Posted by: hieronymous (1755) Report abuse
I'm sorry if that's how it comes across.

My intention was to make it step-by-step.

Hopefully some will have benefited.

Posted by: rosbott (198)  Report abuse
That's OK hiieronymous, your intention were good, and as you say some my have benifitted, but I found all the colored diagrams confusing.
