Downsizing Pictures for Posts

My daughter (who is computer literate) downloaded a program for me called IrfanView. It works easily to downsize pictures & it's a free download. I actually was able to put some pictures in my profile all by myself! I think I'll try one in a post now & see if it works.....

How do you write, post a few pictures, then more writing, and more pictures?

Missed this thread earlier...but it looks like this question was never really answered.

The way you post text then pics, (like this)



then more text (or oversized pictures) is to link to them uploaded on a webserver other than the AirstreamForums. If you have a webpage posted somewhere, just use that server space to store your upload photos and link to them in your posts here. To post here, use the "Insert Picture" (the little yellow button w/mountians & sun) and type in that location. For me, as an example, the above picture is located at http://www.insideout-design.net/maxw...dinnerspot.jpg. You do this instead of using the "Manage Attachments" easy post technique which is a feature built-in to this forum program. It hosts the picture on the forum server and limits the way they can be served.



This one lives at http://www.insideout-design.net/maxwell/home/barn.jpg and so on...

You can also store your pictures in the members gallery at http://www.airforums.com/photos/ and link to them there. One thing to consider though, is if you move them off the remote server at a later date, they will no longer show in your posts here. For this reason IMO, it may be better to use the server (and the "Manage Attachments" easy post technique) here to store pictures posted here, that way if your website server changes, your pictures aren't lost in space. It's an easier "no muss, no fuss" method for those not as savvy in writing or working with .html

Make sense? The bottomline is, you have to have a remote server to do so.

Other Servers

There are other servers you can use to store pictures. One that I like is Photobucket.com. It its a free service where you can upload your images and then it stores Url, Tag and IMG for you to reference. It also lets you resize your upload to 100 x 75 avatar, 160 x 120 thumbnail, 320 x 240 email and 640 x 480 message board defaults. You can create and manage albums to organize your uploads.

I generally store my digital camera photos in Apple Mac's iPhoto on my computer and when I want to post a picture I export it to the size I want to post before uploading to Photobucket.com. If I have pictures not in iPhoto I will edit them in either Preview or Photoshop.

Another service is Tinypic.com. There you upload and get the IMG tag to copy and paste into a message board. In Tinypic.com you are basically uploading to the ether because you cannot manage your albums. You have to grab the IMG tag and use it or you can email it to yourself to store.

Trying to add image to a post. It wants to know the URL of the image. My images are on my desktop, not a website

A while back I posted a short how-to on this, maybe it's still useful?

Cheers,
