[How to] Upload And Post An Image

Postby Joshjb on Wed Oct 08, 2008 10:19 pm

In this guide I will explain how to upload images from your computer and post them on the board.

Uploading And Posting An Image

Step 1 - Upload Your Image!
To upload images, we'll be using ImageShack, but other good ones include TinyPic, ImageBam and PhotoBucket. Once you get to the ImageShack website, make sure "image" is selected after the "upload:" tag ("image" is the default setting), and then select "Browse". (As shown in the following example)
Image

The following window should pop up:
Image

Find and select the image you wish to upload, and click Open, as shown in the image above.

Note: Make sure your image is under 1.53MBs and is in one of the following formats: jpg jpeg png gif bmp tif tiff
Also, the maximum image width allowed on the forum is 500px.


If you want you can enter your e-mail address to register, or resize your image, but all of those are optional. Once you're all set, click "Host it!"
Image

Step 2 - Get Your Link!
Once your image has finished uploading, you will be taken to a page where you will need to scroll down below the advertisement for your link.
Image
This is the link to my image: http://img293.imageshack.us/my.php?image=villainsheroeson8.jpg

Step 3 - Post Your Image!
The third and final step is posting your image. First, write a new post. When you're finished with that and you know where you want to add your image, click, the "img" button in the bar above the text field.
Image

In between the two tags, paste your link, and click "Submit". Your image code should look like this:
The following code is just an example. The link will be different in your post.
Code: Select all
[img]http://img293.imageshack.us/my.php?image=villainsheroeson8.jpg[/img]


...And Voila! Your image should be posted! It wasn't that difficult, now was it? ;)

Also, the image has to be smaller than 500px wide, might be worth mentioning that.

I made a list here that has a load of image upload sites, so if you don't use or don't like imageshack for whatever reason check these ones out :)

I make my image's width smaller than 500 px, like 400 px, but after I upload it on ImageShack and try to post on a message and say preview, it still says "image dimension can not be determined". What should I do?

Ensure you're linking to the actual image (i.e. ending in the file extension - jpg, gif, png etc.) and not the page with the image on it. Also, if all else fails, try TinyPic.

Can you post a link to the image here and I'll see what's wrong.

Also. I would highly recommend this image host.

I use them for DarkUFO and SpoilerTV sites and they automatically generate the code for the forums so you just have to paste in the code. Just make sure you select the code for "Links (type 1) for Forums or BB: "

My pleasure :) Glad it's working.

It's a very good site for hosting lots of images as thumbnails.
