Upload photos?

Postby ToneWood » Fri Jun 29, 2018 11:33 am

Sorry if this is in the wrong place, relatively new here. I can't figure out how to upload an image. The faq says if I don't have a server, I need to upload images. How? I found the "Insert image" icon, but I can't figure out how to use it. (I am also on the Jazz Guitar Forum, and it's pretty easy over there.) Tnx.

When you start typing a post, scrolldown to below the "Save draft""Preview" and "submit" buttons, and you'll see two tabs: "Options" and "Attachments".

Click on the "Attachments" tab, then click "add files". A window will pop up to browse for an image. Select the image you want to upload.

If your post has text, that's all you *need* to do. The attachments will then just be shown at the end of the post.

However, if you don't want to add text to your post (because it won't let you post an "empty" post even with an attachment) or if you want to put the image in between lines of text, like this:
PIGME.jpg


...then you need to put the cursor inside the post text box where you'd want the imge to be inserted, and then scroll down and click the "place inline" button.







And yes...that is me in the Piggly Wiggly Mr. Pig suit. Anyone else find it creepy that the Piggly Wiggly mascot is a pig...dressed as a butcher?

Hey thanks so much! Giving it a try. (Not my guitar.)

It works!

The trick with uploaded images is that they don't get included when the post is quoted.

The other way to post images, and this works if the image is alraedy online, is to upload it somewhere that can give you a URL that ends in ".jpg" (something like: http://www.notkiesel.com/images/yomamma.jpg )

Then, you can use the button up above of the little picture with the mountain and the sun, and paste that URL in between the "[img]" tags. Like this:

Code: Select all

[img]http://www.notkiesel.com/images/yomamma.jpg[/img]


This has two differences: It'll paste it into your post full-size (not shrunk-down in a clickable window like when you upload them here, and not compressed) which is both nice and a pain...and the images also get included when someone quotes your post.
