Many thanks to calibanzwei and sandbender - I will give it another go a bit later on - main problem at moment is I thought I was testing with an arty picture of Edinburgh (as it was big - about 4.5mb) what I seem to have used is picture of some italian kids playing a traditional Italian game in a park above Florence.

Regards

No worries, in theory any image you upload to your photo hosting site that has the file name 'firneze2008022.jpg' will replace the image shown in the post above.

That certainly seems to be the case for images I link to from Photobucket, which is handy if you ever want to replace a picture that you or others may have already linked to on this or other forums. Thus if I have a picture of a carved spoon named 'carvedspoon01.jpg' and I upload another, better image of that spoon named 'carvedspoon02.jpg' then I'd have to go through all my posts where that image appears to change the link code, however if I just replace the existing photo with the new one and use the same file name, the links don't need to be changed. :)

I'm not sure how things are at imageshack, however Photobucket allows you to subdivide your images into 'folders' and 'subfolders', its worth putting some thought into that folder arrangement before any images are uploaded because if you rearrange your folders afterwards all your link URL's will change and all your images will vanish from your posts.

:D

OK - just had a go and thought that again I was getting it wrong because the pic did not appear in the box - then I used the 'preview' button and there they were (I had actually posted thesame pic about 3 times.)

As it was about 4.4 mb looks like fairly big files can be loaded

Thanks again:You_Rock_

I will have a go at a live loading of pics later rather than cluttrer up this thread with my experiments

thanks again for all your help

regards

hi, i read the posted instructions on how to.... but my posting window is completely different to british reds...
i dont have any facility to alter text, fonts etc and no pic insert button.

do i have to be a paid up member to use this? or is it a case of old men and technology! :)

The forums have now changed type, so here are some new instructions:

1. Head to a site like www.photobucket.com or www.imageshack.com and follow the instructions in the first post to host your image.

2. Look for the bit that says "Direct Link". It will say something like:

http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p272/Sedrander/sword_man_by_tahra.jpg

Copy it, and then come to the forums.

3. Type the letters img inside square brackets (If I do it the forum will try and make a picture) So using my direct link it would look something like this:

(img)http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p272/Sedrander/sword_man_by_tahra.jpg

Note that I've replaced the [ ] with ( ), but in your post you need to use [ ].

Then, to tell the forum that your link is complete, you put another little code at the end. It's the same three letters with a / in front of them, like so:

(img)http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p272/Sedrander/sword_man_by_tahra.jpg(/img)

And, to show it:



Hope that helps,

-Andy

This being the first image I have tried to upload, it has taken me ages to work out how to do it cos I've been using the FAQ guide:(, then gave up assuming that as I am not a full member I wasn't allowed. Maybe the FAQ could be changed with a link to this thread.
