Posting photos to the forum

Post by Tony From West Oz » Wed 18 Jan, 2017 2:23 pm

There are 2 ways that you can post images on this forum:
1. Use an online photo hosting service to hold your images (and videos?).
Link to your image using the Image
Be sure to [Preview] the document before posting so you know how it will look. Try to limit the image size to prevent oversized images needing to be scrolled to be viewed properly.
To shift the image(s) within the post, cut and paste the [Img] tags and URL to the preferred location in the post. Preview again after making changes. Repeat until all images are in the desired location(s).

2. Use the [Upload Attachment] tab well down the new post page.
Either [Browse] or enter the file name and path. Be sure to enter comments for the photo to better describe the subject matter.
When happy with that image, click [Add the File].
Preview the post to ensure that the image is correctly located and displayed.
If you want the image(s) to be arranged in the order you prefer or interspersed at specific location in the post, use the [place inline] button in the 'Posted attachments' section at the bottom of the Posting window. This will put the URL in the body of the post.
Cut and paste the [Img] tags and URL to the preferred location in the post. Preview again after making changes. Repeat until all images are in the desired location(s).
eg
Photo-0032.jpg
I have not worked out why the image is rotated 180° but if you click on it, it shows the image right way up.
Once done, sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labour.
