Is there a simple way to post a picture on this site?

I want to post something to sell and would like to post a pic, but I cannot figure out how to get one posted.

I am not real good at just figuring it out, and I thought I read a posting about how to do it, but I cannot find it now that I want to read again.

click the advanced reply button instead of post quick reply, will take you to larger area to post in then choose manage attachments button

You can also upload the picture to the ST gallery then post the link using the little "yellow landscape" button next to the "Globe with the link" button. It will be parsed into the post.

I normally use Flickr and post the links from there using the "yellow landscape" because board galleries usually give me problems.

Hope this helps!

The last time I posted a picture I went to the Go Advanced and used the attachment icon (the paperclip looking thing) at the top of the message board-it didn't attach a big picture but when you click on it, it shows a big picture-this is so much easier than downloading your pictures to another site and then having to link to it.

You have a limited amount of space on your account for attachments, so I prefer to host on my own site (not an option for everyone) or I use ImageShack® - Image Hosting (http://www.ImageShack.us) for quick-and-dirty hosting of throwaway images. (and stuff I wouldn't want on my own site!)

photobucket gives you the code to post the image when you upload it... you just copy/past the code... it starts like [IMG_](no underscore) and finishes [/IMG ] or something like that...

This is a good point and should be considered for the future. There will be times for some where you will want to have a place to post photos that you really like or want people to see. You could also want a place to post or have photos or a more regular or test nature and will not want to mix the two.

This can be easy if you give it some thought on the front side and create a secondary place (Internet hosting site or your own web page).

This is also a good idea (multiple folders) if using a program like PS to help with work flow and archiving your photos.

Easiest way for others to view is using the ]tags.


Doin it is simple.

1.) Find URL for JPG you want to post, such as

http://i.treehugger.com/files/th_images/fish%20bowl.jpg


2.) Pur URL in tags like this

http://i.treehugger.com/files/th_images/fish%20bowl.jpg


3.) Image will show up like this

http://i.treehugger.com/files/th_images/fish%20bowl.jpg




A few notes:
* don't use big pics because it will go beyond the boundries of the frame it's posted in causing people to have to scroll left/right to view the rest of the thread. 800x600 is a good max size in general.

Besides what's been posted so far, note that anything you post on photobucket or imageshack is not gonna be up there forever. Say 6 months or a year down the road, odds are the link will be broken. Also, try not to hotlink large images off other sides, that's bad etiquette because you are sucking bandwidth of said website everytime someone visits the thread with your picture post.

I believe ImageShack leaves stuff pretty forever, IF it's accessed at least periodically. If something goes something like 6 months with no accesses, then I think they delete it.

This should be pretty easy to find out the details on their terms & conditions page, though.
