How to post photos within a thread

Post by SpiffyPix on 2009-01-23, 17:53

Just a quick note on how to post photos here on StrictlyHDR.

1 - You can upload your photos to a free photo-hosting website, such as:

http://www.photobucket.com
www.flickr.com
http://www.imageshack.us

or you can upload to your own website. You then get the photo location (http://www.picture.com/samplepicture.jpg) of your photo that you have uploaded. When you want to insert a photo in your post, simply click on the IMAGE button, the fifth button in from the left (red circle in photo below), where you write your post. After clicking on that button, simply paste the photo location (http://www.picture.com/samplepicture.jpg) into the window.

2- You can use the Host An Image option, which will allow you to upload a photo directly from your computer, to the server. Just click the Host An Image button, which is the sixth button from the right on the top of the post-writing window (blue circle in the photo below). Follow the directions from there. Please resize the file to 600 px width (for websites). Then, copy the 'image link' and paste it right into your post, wherever you want it.

Check out the photo below for more info:



If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!

Whenever I want to host an image I keep getting the message
"Unable to create directories : /home/servimg/u/f39/13/49/22/74/"
This hasn't happened before. Checked everything (e-mail address, password), asked for a new password, activated it, tried it again, doesn't help. Any idea what's going wrong here??

Hi Ron -

Not sure exactly what this means. You're talking about uploading a photo that the forum hosts or you're trying to post an image that's hosted from a different website? I've done both today and didn't have any problems. My only suggestion would be to maybe clean out your cache and try again??

Let me know if you continue to have problems...

Melanie

The problem did not reappear today. Don't know where it came from or why It disappeared, but at least I can post my images again.
