How to........ post photos

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by b0dyr0ck2006, Aug 10, 2011.

  1. I am editing this to bring things up to date a bit more and to try and makes things much more simpler for everyone.

    Ok, here we go step-by-step.

    First thing you have to do is create an account with PhotoBucket or another site that offers the option to upload images (ImageShack, Flickr etc. do the same - choose one you like best).
    In this case I'll use http://www.forumimagehosting.com/ as an example.

    In forumimagehosting you create an account in just two steps:

    Go to http://www.forumimagehosting.com/ and on the top right you will find a sign up button:

    [​IMG]

    Fill in your details and follow the on screen prompts, most of you should be fairly familiar with signing up to things now so I won't walk you through that part. When you have created your account enter your username + password and if you're working on your own computer you can choose 'remember me'.

    Now you have signed up and logged in, you want to upload some pictures to share with all us lovely people right? Back up on the to right is an 'Upload' button, here we get into the fun part. Click that bad boy....

    This opens up your upload screen. From here you can simply drag and drop your photos from where ever you have them stored, or you can search for them via the browse button, or if they are stored somewhere online you can add the URL Address.

    You can add them one by one or select a large group of them to upload all at once. You can continue to add pictures until you have added all that you want. Once you have done press the green upload button.

    [​IMG]

    The system will start to upload all the photos you have added and once done will tell you all is complete.

    Now, if you are ready to share those pictures right away then in the dropdown box you want to select 'BBcode Full' and then copy everything that shows up in the lower box. It will look something like this:

    [​IMG]

    Go to your post in TLB and paste the code you just copied into the textbox. And now your image should appear.

    If you wish to post the photos at a later date then you will need to go into your account, here will be all the photos you have ever uploaded in date order. Chose which ones you wish to share by hovering your mouse over the image, a few options will slide in from the side and you want to tick the small checkbox on the top right of the image. Once all the photos that you want are selected, back over on the right and written in blue will be 'Action' and an arrow. Clicking on this will provide you with a few options but 'Get Embed' is what you want. In the next screen use the drop down and select 'BBCode Full' and again, copy the code and add it to your TLB post.

    I hope that this makes your life a little easier than before. I know it sounds a little long winded but it really isn't once you have a go. Any questions or problems then please ask!

  2. Thanks a million for this, we've managed to get one on :D
     
  3. Can't find the IMG code on Flickr..!!?? Only the http link..!!?? :thinking:

    no idea about flicker sorry
     
  5. on flickr, when you have the option to grab the link, if you select the BBC code, inside this code is an [ img ] then it says a filename/ link in between [ / img ] which you need to copy. this will work. I have just done it and i know nothing about computer code.

    i had to space out the [ i m g ] just for an exmple otherwise it just shows as a red cross againg. lol. complicated lol.

    Hope it helps.
     
  6. All of the above is fine.
    Admins - and also maybe Mods, I'm not sure - have the additional ability to circumvent this process and stick pictures directly onto the TLB site. This gives pictures with a URL of (for example)
    [nobbc]http://thelatebay.com/index.php?action=media;sa=media;in=1;preview[/nobbc]
    which look super in a browser but unfortunately don't seem to work in new-fangled technology like tapatalk on android or on iphone.

    Is there a tapatalk setting/workaround that I'm missing?
    If not, can I impose on admins to consider slumming it on 3rd-party sites like the rest of us? :D
     
  7. Anybody can upload to this site but as you say if your browsing with tapatalk you can't see the images.

    yep, just use the mediatab to upload direct but it don't show on tapatalk.
     
  9. I have written up a new guide for the new photobucket but it is still in beta testing - but still available to the public if they sign up.


    What should I do with the guide? add it to the existing and when the move over happens delete the original post?


    Post it up and let mods move it into one of your hidden boards till the change over?


    cheers
     
  10. So how do you post images in your threads?


    This guide will hopefully make things a little easier for you to understand.


    We will be using Photobucket so if you dont have an account head over there and sign up, its free.


    www.photobucket.com




    Once you have logged in you will be presented with the following screen, this is your homepage:


    [​IMG]


    The next step is to click on 'UPLOAD' or 'UPLOAD MORE'


    [​IMG]


    A new screen will open, this is your upload page


    [​IMG]


    From here you have two options, you can either drag and drop the photos you wish to upload into the white square or click on browse files to select the images on your computer


    [​IMG]


    Once the images have been added you have the option to choose a location to upload, either to an existing folder or make a new folder. Click 'Upload to...Library' (This step can be skipped if you wish to upload all your images into a generic library folder.)


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    If you wish to create a new album, select that option and fill in the details, then click create. This will be your selected album ready for uploading


    [​IMG]


    Click the upload button and wait for the process to finish


    [​IMG]


    Now you have uploaded your images you can either upload some more or view the album just added


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Next step is to hover your mouse over the photo you wish to share and a little gear symbol will appear, again hover your mouse over that and a list of options will show. click 'Get Media Links'


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Click on 'IMG Code' and it will copy the link for you


    [​IMG]




    Paste that link into your post and your done.










    As this is still in beta stage functions will be added such as selecting multiple images and code selection. I will amend this guide as and when.

  15. Does anybody use Flickr for their photos? If so, are you having problems too since they updated the Flickr site?
    I copy the image location but it doesn't seem to work. I don't really want to transfer to Photobucket now, as I'm all set up in Flickr ...

    Sorry, I can't help on Flickr but I've just started using Dropbox when I'm on the phone :)
     
  17. Thanks, but nope - problem not solved :( Only got a laptop, and Dropbox doesn't seem to work for photos. Seems I won't be adding to the Show Us Your Pets thread just yet ...
