How to upload pics

Firstly you have to prepare your photos. Trying to post photos straight from the camera just won't work - they're far too big. For posting photos in a forum, they need to be small.

Use a photo editing program (Paint Shop Pro, or the Gimp which is free) to open the photo. Reduce the size to 640x480, then do a bit of sharpening. Save this as a new jpg file. This new small file is the one to upload.

OR

Use an online tool such as http://www.picnik.com. You can upload your photo, resize it to 640 x 480, apply sharpening (10 seems about right), and then save as a jpg (quality 8 is good).

Now, in a new post or having pressed "Post Reply" (not "Quick Reply"), you will see the attachments button (it's a little paperclip):

This will open the attachments window:

Click Browse and browse to the photo. Double check that the photo is 800 wide or less (640 is good) and less than 256Kb. Click on the photo name and press open.

Then press upload and the photo will appear in the "Current attachments". You can browse and upload several times to add several photos.

When you're done, press "Close this window" and the list of photos will appear underneath your message:

Here's an advanced tip.

Load up your attachments so you have a list, ready to post. Hover over the link to your attachment, and you'll see, in the url, an "attachmentid". This id is a number (I've just done one and it's 562).

Now, in your post put the following code, anywhere you like in the text:

[attach]562[/attach]

and you get the attachment in the post like this:

post3.png


and not grouped together at the end.

So you can re-order them and bung them in the text. Happy days!

All taken from the FAQ (link at the top of the page).

Having uploaded the files, when your cursor is where you want to insert the picture, click on the paperclip again and pick the image you want to drop into the post. Magic!

Charles,

By far the best way to do this is to load the files onto Youtube. Then post them neatly using this:

Cheers!

Never been near Youtube in my life!

Might build up confidence and try later!

I could do with that to stop people nabbing the disabled parking bays!

Actually I scared a bloke off once with my folded walking stick, he thought it was a gun!

Go Advanced and use the yellow-ish Insert Image button.

Thank You FWH,
but this is not what i meant.

Don't know if it possible with vbulletin.
With other PHP boards You can link for ex. the pictures from Your personal album with
Code:
[album]1[/album] [album]2[/album]
for picture 1, 2 etcin an thread.

Just thinking to reduce the server load instead of uploading same pictures in each thread where you will use them.

The Insert Image button does just this.
It is the paper clip button that uploads.

Or am I missing something?

I assume the Insert Image button actually creates some code, just not sure what it is.

You are right,
but You have to copy and paste each hyperlink from the album one by one even if You know the numbers from your images in your album, because each link is different probably not only by the number, or?
