How to insert photos into posts

Postby MisterMat » Tue Aug 03, 2010 12:55 pm

This gets asked a lot... I'm going to take a break from causing trouble and be useful for a change.

This is not the only way to upload pictures but it it's reliable, easy and works for me, every time.

Step 1: Upload picture to imgur.com

Imgur is more reliable than photobucket or the vast majority of image hosting sites. I recommend it for a reason.

First, go to http://www.imgur.com

Image

Click browse, select your picture, click continue to upload.

(You can also upload an imagine from another website via the "Upload URLs" page)

Step 2: Copy the reference to your url

When it's uploaded, you will be presented with this screen. Copy the text from the "message board" pane, by highlighting it, right clicking and selecting "copy"

Image

Step 3: Paste into your message

Next, just paste the text into your message like so:

Image

Click "message preview" to make sure it all displays correctly before posting. If it's too big, there is an option on imgur.com to change the size of the picture after it has been uploaded, see the "More Sizes" tab in the top right hand side of the screen.

Job done!

Matthew.

Alternatively, find desired album cover on amazon, right clic & select copy url, then go to your post, clic insert image, then right clic insert url in the middle of your img brackets.
This negates having to go via a photo sharing site (many people like myself do not &  have no reason to use them).

Robert - please let me know if i'm wrong to recommend this alternative.

Another variation, which gives you images of a constant size from a probably stable long term source,  is to use Google images to search for allmusic + the band and album name. That will almost invariably bring up the required image in allmusic which you then click on, and then click on open image. Then click on the url in the search bar to copy it, then paste it into the insert image brackets in the forum, et voila.

I always do it that way now. Uploading an image first is a pain in the arse, so I only do that with personal photos, because then there is no choice.
