How To Post Pictures


Monkey
 Share

Recommended Posts

Please note that although there's the facility to upload images directly into the forum, this uses up valuable server space and costs the forum money, which we'd rather use on keeping annoying flashing banner ads away. For this reason, we've disabled the feature

With that in mind, when posting pictures, use an external image hosting site such as ImageShack or Flickr.

Both are free to join and very easy to use.

www.flickr.com

www.imageshack.us

<edit> Imageshack isn't free any more, so use flickr.com

 

EDITED TO ADD:

You can also use postimages.org

 https://postimages.org/

Use the "Direct link" option.

 

Instructions for FLICKR.COM

Upload your picture and find the "share" button.

Copy and paste the BBCode that pops up. You only need the code between the first and second URL tag for the actual picture so when you paste it into your post, just delete the lines of code you don't need.

The end result should be a nice pic of some bikes, pretty flowers, and beautiful people as in this case above. Well one out of three ain't that bad really.

Instructions for IMAGESHACK.US

1) Head over to imageshack.us

2) Hit the "Media Upload" button.

3) Press the "Browse" button and find the image from your computer

4) Hit the "Upload now" button. Wait a few seconds... or longer if you live out in the sticks.

5) ... then copy the "Forum Code" link in the box and paste it into the message you're writing on the forum.

5a) If you've uploaded a big stack of images in a frenzied session and need to recall the codes, simply press the "My Images" button. Select the option to "Embed this image" and some codes will appear. Choose the "Forum" code and paste it into the message.

Voila! Enjoy picture of overpriced exotic performance bike and Italian totty flanked by two wrinkly, but important, Ducati geezers.

(Also when I click "reply" I get a load of text in the reply window, looks like a quote?)

that's 'cos you are clicking the reply box at the bottom of a post with the 'quote' box next to it "+"d. "-" the 'quote' bit or use the reply button at the bottom of the page.

Blow_away -

In Flickr - looking at your photostream - click on Share This -> choose Embed -> and then look at the code shown. You're just after the bit in the quotes after <img src=" until you get to .jpg or some such.

eg .. <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/30174685@N03/2863571690/" title="16/09/2008 by trigg3r, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3018/2863571690_993dcf9c2d.jpg" width="500" height="375" alt="16/09/2008" /></a>

All you do then is click the rte-image-button.png button and enter the bit highlighted. :D

how come when i post a photo via imageshack i allways end up with only a small picture with a black bar underneath it???

when you have upoaded the pic,click on it and it will be shown full size,to the right of the pic there is two boxes,yes and no.click no.

now copy the link for forums and paste to your post.

i spent 30mins trying to figure it out earlier.

This is probably a stupid question, but how do I get rid of the CBT status on my profile? There doesn't seem to be way of doing this, am I being thick? Thought I should change it as I've been riding for twenty odd years! Thanks for your help, great forum
