How to post a picture in a post

Post by Matt on Fri Aug 14, 2009 2:46 am

Sign up a free account at www.photobucket.com or go to www.tinypic.com. Go to your "album" and then click the upload button to upload your picture(s) to photobucket. Wait for the picture to upload, then once done click "save and return to album" (if applicable, photobucket tends to change regularly). You will now see the picture you have just uploaded on your photobucket album page. Somewhere you should see a list of options to share the image. One will look something like below:

Code:
[img]http://www.photobucketlink.jpg[/img]
Copy and paste all of that text on here in your post.
Once the post is submitted the picture will appear.

If you have the pics on your own website and want to post them here:
If you have a website and have pics on there that you also want to post on this forum, you can right click ON the pic on your website. On the menu that appears, click "properties". You will see something that says "location" or "URL" and next to that an address that looks something like "http://website.piczo/pic.jpg" (for example). Copy that text onto here in your post. Before and after the text, put the "image tags". So your post will now look like this:
Code:
[img]http://www.thetextyoujustcopied.jpg[/img]
Note that the starting and ending image tags are different. Also note that there are NO gaps anywhere.

Once your post is submitted, the picture will appear! Note: the link part of the text should always end in something like .jpg, .png, .gif etc. If there is anything after this, for example .jpgblahblah REMOVE the text afterwards, so it still ends in .jpg.

If you are still having problems posting pictures then please PM an admin or mod for help. It is very easy once you get the hang of it. All you need is the direct link to the image, and then put the image tags before and after it in the post. Once submitted the picture will appear.

Where members often get confused is that they don't understand that the picture must first be online before others can see it! This is why we use photobucket, tinypic, imageshack etc (all free image hosts, there are more, just do a google search! Although photobucket is best).

I have just discovered that if you switch WYSIWYG editing on (when making a post click the little A sign so it turns pink - the button furthest to the right in the post options) you can actually drag and drop any online (e.g. from your photobucket album) images into your post. So for those of you that can't be bothered to write out codes, there you go lol.

It is - but if you use this feature, you'll have to make do with the picture showing as a small thumbnail, and other members will have to download it to see it full-size.

On photobucket, hover your mouse over the pic, a menu will drop down, then scroll down and right click on the bottom option, a menu will come up , click on copy.
Go to the Cavy Breeders reply box and click to engage, right click, menu comes up, click on paste and the link should appear.
Any writing in the reply can go before or after it.

theres an easy way of doing it from Facebook yes... Find the photo on facebook you want to post, right click on the photo, select "Copy image location" from the menu that appears. Come onto the forum, and in your message box (the bit you type in), select the 7th icon from the panel (in the same place you see the B, I and the U) It should add a [img ] code to the message.... once you have selected that, hold down Ctrl and V together on your keyboard for a second. This should bring up the IMG code... all that you then need to do is press the same icon from the panel again, which should add a [/img] tag to the end of your message.
Hope this works for you Marji! x

I have posted pics but only some folk can see them. I can see them fine. How do I check for the permission status ? Someone has mentioned it would be worth checking. Have posted loads of pics the same way from Photobucket with no problems in the past

Many people who have had trouble posting photos have all used html, (which is what i found you had done, slimbridge1), people need to make sure theyare using the IMG code, not the HTML Wink x
