There are various ways to go about posting pictures on PSU...

Here's some of the ways to do it:

1) Use the "Insert Image" feature:

Hit the "Insert Image" button, it looks like this:

http://s22.postimg.org/bkee45bv5/Insertpic.jpg (http://postimg.org/image/pe2qt74gd/full/)

Select the picture on your computer and choose "Upload Files"... the picture will then be attached where your cursor stands in your post.

Here's an example:

6538





2) Use the "Attachments" function:

Hit the "Attachments" button with the paperclip icon on it... Please note that if you start a thread, the button will be there right away; if you just reply to a post in a thread, you have to "Go Advanced" by choosing this in the post. The button is this one:

http://s28.postimg.org/o4ua4mthp/Attach.jpg (http://postimg.org/image/uvare2gnd/full/)

When you hit the Attach button, a new window called "Manage Attachments" opens (or places itself on the task line depending on your computer settings)...

Choose "Add Files" and select the files from your computer... the files will then stand ready to be uploaded. Choose Upload Files.

If you choose "Done", the picture will be attached at the end of the post... if you choose "Insert Inline", you have to check the little box at the picture and choose "Insert Inline". The picture(s) will then be inserted where your cursor stands in your post.

In this case, I chose "Insert Inline":

6538





3) Using a photo server service (remote hosting):

There are various photo servers on the Internet that are FREE!

For instance, you can sign up on photobucket.com, imageshack.com, flicker etc... I can recommend postimage.org if you don't need to save the pictures.

When using postimage.org, select the picture on your computer and then copy the bar to the right of the link called "Hotlink for forums (1)"... clicking on the bar copies it and even tells you it's been copied!

Here's an example using postimage.org:

http://s4.postimg.org/j9rcxl5kt/Mario_Grandi.jpg (http://postimage.org/)
screengrab (http://postimage.org/app.php)

Notice that it says "Screengrab" below the picture? You can remove this by since deleting the second url line... I've put a red line under the url to remove in this screenshot:

http://s27.postimg.org/612ffe56b/urlremove.jpg (http://postimg.org/image/z3gpi7rfz/full/)

If you use Photobucket, simply copy the bar called "IMG" below the uploaded picture and insert it into your post.

I hope this small tutorial was helpful!

Bo, is there an admin preferred method? One that uses less server space or bandwidth or whatever it is that matters?

Pics used from remote hostings take up less space on the server if you - in the Insert Image window in the "From URL" tap - uncheck the option "Retrieve remote file and reference locally".

BUT we have plenty of space, and the picture size limits have been increased to allow quite large pics...

Please also note that if you uncheck the option above, when the picture shows up in the post, it will be retrieved from the remote host each time it is viewed, so if in the future you take the picture down from that site, move it to a different folder, close your account, etc., an error message will appear in it's place, like this one from Photobucket:

6546

Just something to consider.

This program may help, I've been using it to resize pictures locally (on my own computer) for about a month now. Use it once or twice and you can get the hang of it. Select a file, select a re-size, and convert. You can overwrite, or not, depending on if you want to keep the original image.

Bo,
I read the article on posting pictures. I am following the correct procedure but still get a posted pic plus an attached pic.
Also, I do not have the upper 2 rows of toolbars as shown in your example above.

I get that if I use the (Go Advanced) paper clip thingy but not if I use the image icon.

Benton,

When attaching pics via the "Go Advanced" option (clicking the Paperclip icon), try choosing "Insert Inline" after you have uploaded the picture instead of selecting "Done"... as said in the tutorial, the picture will then be inserted right where the cursor stands.

Thanks Bo - tell me something a few (many) times and eventually I get it! :mad-scientist:

Bo,
I edited the duplicate out of that post.
The attachment paperclip button works as advertised but the insert image icon produces both.

Please see your other thread, post # 15 to 19... I tried to re-create the "double image" by using all ways to attach a picture but could not succeed in re-creating the fault:

Open your youtube video and copy the url and then paste it in the dialogue box that you show above ( which opens when you click the film icon on the toolbar ).
