Default So you want to post a picture

How to post a picture??? Well first off its free to attach pictures to your posts here on CLF. CLF does offer free image hosting to its subscribers.

In order to post a picture in your post the image has to be on the web somewhere, this is referred to as hosted. There are quite a few free web/image hosts on the web these days, and they all work defiantly so I am not going to cover them. I will cover the imaging hosting here on CLF, so if you have your own image hosting, skip the next section.

So you want to post a pic here on CLF, first you will need to size the picture. To put a pic in a post the best size is 400 x 300 pixels, that way the page will not have to scroll over to see then entire image. If you just was to share the image on the web, you can have them up to 800 x 600 pixels. So now you have your picture trimmed down to size...go to the Photo Album Now you need to decided where to put the picture. Yu can post it to any of the fish categories, or your own personal gallery, which you will find towards the bottom of the page. So now you clicked on one of the galleries, you should see a button on the left hand side right about the pictures that says "upload pic" go ahead and click on it. Then the upload screen will come up, this is where you have to fill in some info, the picture title is a required field, the description is not required. Once you have the title filled out click on the browse button on the upload pic from your machine line. This will look at you local computer, and you need to browse to the location on your computer to where you stored the picture you want to post. Once you select the pic you want to post, click on the open button. Then you will go back to the upload pic screen, and see the path tot the picture on you local computer, scroll down and there will be a "Submit" button go ahead and click on it. Then the next screen will ask where you want to go, click on the return to gallery link. Then on the next page you should see the picture you just uploaded...go ahead and click on the picture, it should open up in a new window. If you will be posting the picture to a post highlight the web address of the picture - it will look something like https://chicagolandfishing.com/forums/al ... pic_id=893 then go to the next section


Ok so now you have you picture hosted on the web, now its time to add it to a post. So go ahead and type you a good post about the picture....then in the post add
Code:
if you used the clf photo album the link will look something like
Code:

Hey king;
I was posting (with photos from Photobucket) merrily along and then Photobucket decided to change their format. Please help. The photos either are huge or they come up as a link.

I'm trying to post some pictures but am getting this error:

Your images may only be up to 650 pixels high.

My picture size on photobucket is about 200x300 (portrait picture). Please help! Can pictures also be included in a PM?

Hmmmm, PM me with the link to your image. Actually, I thought external image checking was fixed but I just tried a 1000 (high) and got an error. 200x300 should be fine though.

Sometimes the 2 servers must fight I get unable to check size errors but later they post up fine.

Default Re: So you want to post a picture

Ok so I click on Photo Albums and it says no url. Then I went to bottom of page and clicked on it and it says no albums found. I could not find anywhere to upload pics. I was able to copy image location to the dog picture post but no pictures. Are we still not able to image host since the new site is up or am I just missing something. I have Snapfish but if I need to photobucket I could probably do that. I should be in good standing as a subscriber also, I know my check cleared.
Thanks in advance

The images from before are on the server, it's just getting it all hooked up.
Picture size is set at 650X650.

I followed the directions was wound up posting a link to the photo in the thread. How do I actually get the pic in my post? Did I miss something?

Thanks,
Karl

Actually, if you use photobucket, you have to resize to 650 x 800 maximum... Once you resize it, mouse over your picture and 4 options will appear... Email/IM... Direct Link... HTML Code... and IMG code... Copy and paste the IMG code into your post and POOF... PM me if that doesn't work for you

If you set your camera to email/internet sizing photobucket works great. Not sure why everyone uses that bigger than the solar system 3 pix per 2 gig card setting.
