Posting pictures with Photobucket.com

Postby singintheblue » Thu Aug 23, 2007 7:10 am

Posting pictures on this site is done in three steps-
1. Upload pictures from your computer to Photobucket.com
2. Start a posting in the Caravelle forum
3. Download your pictures from Photobucket.com to your posting

Prework-
Go to http://photobucket.com/ and create an account with a user name and password- It’s free.

Reduce the size of the photos you plan to post to a maximum width of 600 pixels. This will allow it to be displayed entirely without scrolling.

Open two windows, so you have one window on Photobucket and one on the forum.


1. Start a new posting, either by selecting New Topic or Post Reply

2. On Photobucket, in the upload section, click “Browse” and locate the pictures on your computer. Follow the instructions to upload them to your album on Photobucket.

3. Under each of your pictures will be 4 links. You want to left-click one time on the “IMG” link. A little yellow “Copied” sign pops up.

Go back to your posting on the forum.
In the window that you write your text, right click your mouse and select “paste” It will put the link that you copied from Photobucket in there. The [img]and[/img] Tags will be added automatically.

If you use a service that doesn't do that, when you have pasted your link in the posting box on the forum, select the whole link and then click on "Img" in the bar above the box. It adds the tags on both ends.

Repeat this for as many photos as you want to post and submit it

Very Good!

Just don't forget you have to include it within the [img]and[/img] Tags.

One suggestion, if at all possible, could everyone please reduce the size of your photos before you load them into Photobucket. I would say a reasonable size is 600 pixels wide. Some of your photos are like over 1,000 pixels. Whatever size you save them into photobucket, is the size you see them here...I know everyone is proud of their boats, but if we could just keep the photos within the dimensions of the computer screen (without having to scroll horizontally) that would be nice.

Just a thought! :-)

Thanks.

Photobucket puts the tags in there automatically if you click on the IMG link. It's just click and paste.

If you use a service that doesn't do that, when you have pasted your link in the posting box on the forum, select the whole link and then click on "Img" in the bar above the box. It adds the tags on both ends.

Rivertown,
I have edited the first post above to include your suggestions.
If the instructions are acceptable, would it be possible to put them where new members can find them easily, maybe a link in the menu bar or in Show Us Your Boat?

This was suggested in another posting and you may not have seen it. If you saw it and just haven't gotten around to it, I apologize for rushing you. I'm in no hurry and I appreciate all you do here.

Singintheblue,
I like your revised instructions even mo'. I was feeling a little guilty about the size of my first-time pics I posted, so I went back and read this thread again (actually 2 times). After the first reading, I thought I would try to just change some settings in Photobucket and re-paste the links in my Show Us Your Boat thread, but that didn't seem to work for me. After reading this thread a second time, I saw Rivertown's and your recommendation to change the size before uploading to Photobucket, and that was the ticket. I changed my pics to 600x450 on my PC and saved as new file names in my PC folder before the upload to Photobucket. Hope they are OK now. I figured since I saved a few pixels by resizing my four photos, I added a 5th photo of my boat in its Roadrunner-built cradle in my raggedy boat house. :)

The "How to Post Photos" instructions are now posted and should remain at the TOP of the "Show Us Your Boat" forum page.

Thanks for the suggestion Singintheblue!
