    How To: Post a Picture / Video

    There are three ways to attach pictures:
    1) Attaching picture files saved on your computer.
    2) Posting pictures saved in an online album (ex: Photobucket)
    3) Posting pictures from Flickr


    1) Attaching picture files saved on your computer
    • Click the Upload a File button located under the edit/reply box (this opens your saved computer picture file)
    .[​IMG]
    • The picture will now appear as Attached Files under the Upload a File button. Click Delete button to remove it.
    • Select a picture size: Thumbnail or Full image (full image is suggested for attached files)
    • Your picture is now in the reply box. Repeat the process to add more pictures.
    [​IMG]
    • Place your cursor on the left side of the picture and hit Enter to move the picture down to add text above it.
    • Place your cursor on the right side of the picture and hit Enter to move the cursor below the picture to add text underneath it.
    • When you are done adding pictures click the Post Reply button. Your post with picture(s) will now show on the thread.
    2) Posting pictures saved in an online album (ex: Photobucket):
    • Click Image icon on task bar.
    [​IMG]
    • This opens the Image URL box.
    [​IMG]
    • Copy/Paste the Direct Link info from the online album (ex. Photobucket) into the URL field in the URL box.
    [​IMG]

    The address should always end in the image extension (.jpg, .gif, .png)
    • Click the Insert button. Your picture is now inserted into the reply box.
    • When you are done adding pictures click the Post Reply button. Your post with picture(s) will now show on the thread.
    3) Posting pictures from Flickr:
    • If posting a picture from Flickr you cannot post a direct link. You have to grab the html/bb code and copy/paste it into the post itself. To remove the file name delete the part highlighted below . Leaving it in will post the name of the file, etc. below the picture.

    How to Post a Video:
    • Click on the the little film strip icon. It will say Media when you hover over it.
    [​IMG]
    • Paste the Youtube video URL

    5) How To: Edit a Picture Attachment:
    There are a couple of reasons you may want to edit a picture attachment:
    • (A) You posted a picture as a thumbnail instead of a full image.
    • (B) You want to delete the picture and replace it with another.
    (A) To change a thumbnail to a full image picture:
    • Click Edit in your post that contains your picture.
    Editing a picture attachment1.jpg
    • This puts your post in edit mode.
    • Notice the picture is now viewed as text.
    • Click the More Options button.
    Editing a picture attachment2.jpg
    • This opens the window where the picture queue is located (under your edit/reply box).
    • Click Full Image and your picture(s) will be changed from thumbnail size to full image.
    • OR...
    • Locate your picture in the queue and click the Full Image button next to it and your picture will be placed in your edit/reply box. (A)
    • Delete the thumbnail text or the thumbnail picture will still be in your post. (B)
    • Click Save Changes when ready to re-post your message. (C)
    Editing a picture attachment3.jpg

    Editing a picture attachment4.jpg

    (B) To delete the picture and replace it with another:
    Editing a picture attachment5.jpg
    • In the Attached Files Queue locate the picture you want to delete and click the Delete Button that is next to it
    • Click Upload a File to select a new picture from your saved picture files on your computer
    • Insert as Full Image
    • Click Save Changes when ready to re-post your message.
    • Note: Delete the thumbnail text from edit/reply box or the thumbnail picture will still be in your post.

    I tried uploading a video from my iPhone today. It processed for a while then said the video wasn't the right format.

    Do I have to use YouTube to share video?

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes, videos have to be uploaded to youtube (or FB, Vimeo, etc). Then you click the media button and insert the URL of the movie. It will embed it for you :)

    Is there a size limit to the pictures? I have tried to upload a few times today and it tells me that my pictures are to big.

    Can someone please tell me which video hosting sites we can use?

    I can't use YouTube or Facebook.

    I've been trying photobucket all week long but it just takes forever and doesn't upload.

    I tried Flickr but my video is too long.

    Are there any other options?

    Nothing happens when I click the media button. Does anyone know why? I was going to try to upload a video, I have the video code but it won't even give me anywhere to type or paste it to when I click the media button.

    You can try a different browser or see if maybe your popup blocker is on. It should pop up a secondary window for you to paste the URL link into.

    I use photobucket. It's pretty simple that way. You just copy the link photobucket gives you and paste it in your response area here.

    Photobucket doesn't work any more unless you pay them the outrageous fees for hosting. So now all the Photobucket pix look like broken links.
