Attaching pics to posts. Okay for n00bs.

If you're not in Jo Momma, when you write a post you should see an option to add attachments. If you scroll down below the area where you type your post, you should see this button:



When you click that button, the following window comes up:



Click the browse button to find a photo on your hard disk and upload it to ADVrider.

Gotchas:

1. Your photo has to be small enough to post, which means it probably has to be re-sized after you fetch it from your camera. Paint.NET or Irfanview to the rescue.

2. You can only attach one image per post.

3. It uses ADVrider's disk space and bandwidth, making it harder for me to keep the site fast.

4. When people reply to your post, they can't display your image again, which they usually want to do.

Option 2: Open a SmugMug or Photobucket account:

SmugMug and Photobucket specialize in image hosting. They do the image resize thing automatically, allow you to post many images per post, and you can post to other message forums. They don't use ADVrider's disk storage or bandwidth, which helps keep ADVrider fast.

In addition, with SmugMug, you get real online albums you can arrange, customize, use for family, travel, hobbies, etc. Disclaimer: I own SmugMug. The idea came from ADVrider and the need for good photo hosting.

You can tag any album at SmugMug as part of the ADVrider community, and it will show up with other member's galleries in the ADVrider community home page, most recent on top.

Photobucket offers limited free accounts and easy upgrade to more capacity for a nominal yearly fee. SmugMug offers a free trial and full accounts for a nominal annual fee.

Once you have an account, you can use the IMG button, , that you see above the area where you type when you post. The image button let's you specify an Internet address (URL) to identify the image.

Here is a tutorial at SmugMug that should answer your Qs.

Clear as mud?

Q: "But... But.... I followed your directions to link to a photo exactly from some other photo sharing site and it didn't work!? Computers really piss me off."

A: Some sites don't appreciate you linking to their images for mindless posts, so they block it.

When I click add attachment - the depicted screen doesn't match what you have shown - no method to browse and select pics. I didn't read all posts but has method changed?

Thanks,

Wtf?

Why does the attachment box say I have already uploaded the maximum of 1 files? I didn't upload jack. Is there a way to reset it?

can't post pics

Like a couple posters above me, I can't post pics. I'm not getting the browse option, and it says I've already uploaded the max of one file. Any suggestions on a workaround? Thanks -
