    Quick photo posting tutorial

    First, since this site is privately owned, there is a limit of disk space in which I can afford to pay for. My limit is your limit. Uploads that are too large in file size will be terminated. There are other options though, and I'll speak about them a bit more later. Since it's pretty late and I have to wake up in a little bit, I'm going to stop now and I'll continue on with this hopefully tomorrow.

    Just one thing... If you have questions as to anything I've included here, please ask. If you don't ask, I won't know you don't know how to use something, and that doesn't do anybody any good. Ask Questions!!!

    At any time during this brief tutorial, you can click on any of the images to enlarge them.


    [multipage=Upload using Photopost]
    You can click any of these diagrams at any time to enlarge them.

    [coverattach=1] The first option is our photopost software. It's very easy to upload pictures with photopost. As a matter of fact, if you take a look on the front page in the center column, you'll see the "Site Navigation" menu. Within this menu, there is a hotlink under the photography section that says, "Upload Pictures". Click on "Upload Pictures" and you'll be presented with the following upload screen.



    [coverattach=3]Step 2 - Using the drop down menu, choose the category to upload to. For example, if you have a mayfly nymph, select "Nymph's". If you have a trout picture or general fly fishing pic, select that option.


    .
    [coverattach=2]Step3 - This should be self explainatory... There are 3 "Browse" buttons. click the browse button and select the path on your home computer to upload up to 3 photo's from.

    Step4 - Enter a title for your photo in the box after the 3 upload boxes.

    Step5 - Keywords - These are short words or small groups of words. For example, Say you are uploading a Hendrickson spinner. You might want to put something in the keyword box like so: Hendrickson, spinner, mayfly, red quill, subvaria, etc... This way when people search for anything that matches your keywords, your photo will be displayed.


    Finally, click "Upload/Submit". Thats it! Your photo will be displayed on the front page here:[coverattach=4]





    .
    [multipage=Uploading Photo's to a thread][coverattach=5]This is a simple one. When you start a new thread or reply to an existing one, you are taken to the "Post New Thread" screen. Simply type your message into the provided box then scroll down to the "Additional Options" section and locate the "Manage Attachments" button. Click on that and a screen will come up with "Browse" buttons. As indicated in the photo, you can upload up to 5 pictures at one time. Note the file sizes in the key. Example (jpg = 293.0kb) means that your file size should not be larger than that. If it is, your files will not come through. I typically make my photo's around 100-150k. As you can see, the quality is pretty damn good.




    [coverattach=6]After selecting your photo's, click the "Upload" button and wait until it's finished.






    .
    [multipage=Last Option - Photo Bucket][coverattach=7]Again, locate the "Additional Options box. Locate "Display the upload form from Photobucket". Click it and login. Then select the image and click the IMG tag. This should copy the URL into your computers clip board. Simply scroll back up to the window your posting your message in and hit, "CTRL-V". That will paste the link into the window.




    Click "Save" to post your thread!

    Question, please feel free to ask.

    Re: Quick photo posting tutorial

    Dennis,
    I have a photobucket account now and when I go to the screen to access my account, it does not appear as yours does in the tutorial. I am logged into the account when I go to the photobucket website. I know I'm being a pain, this is not as easy as you make it seem to be. Some of us are challenged in the computer world.

    Hi Rich,

    Can you email me a screen shot of what you see when you click the photobucket thing? I'd like to see what you see.

    Screen shot: Get to the problemed screen. Press "ALT-PRTSCN" (That's alt + Print screen). That will copy only this window into your clipboard.

    Next, go to your "Start" menu and click "RUN". When the box comes up, type "MSPaint" and hit enter. When Paint comes up, press, "CTRL-V". This will paste your printscreen into MSPaint. Then Save the file and email it to me.

    Dennis

    Re: Quick photo posting tutorial

    I accidentally uploaded the same image twice - how can I delete one of them? Also how can I edit the title of the picture. Thanks!

    Fly fisher for fifty-five years and still loving it!

    Re: Quick photo posting tutorial

    Well,
    This is brain surgery. The upload appeared once, then I selected a picture, clicked choose file and nothing happened. Then I tried to go back and try again and the feed was gone and would not come back. Sorry, but I have given up on the picture thing. Like I originally said, the other site I mentioned to Dennis automatically resizes my pictures directly from my i-photo application. Dennis, it needs to be EXTREMELY EASY for me to do this, if I need to spend more than 2 or 3 mins. on it, it's too long. Sorry!

    PS, I don't have any clue what you asked me to do in the post Dennis, that's brain surgery with a blindfold!

    Babyblue -

    I don't know how much you know, so I apologize if this sounds like condescension. I just wanted to explain the basics in case you didn't know. Also, I hope I'm not stepping on any toes, here.

    When most people link to a pic in their Photobucket album using the old method, they open their Photobucket page in another browser window, click the Image Tag for the photo they want to upload and switch back to the NEFF window to paste that tag into a message.

    The Photobucket Upload Form that Dennis added is just a way to link to your PB pics without having to open your Photobucket page in another browser window or tab. You still have to copy the Image tag and paste it into your post. Your PB upload screen should look like this. After clicking on the picture you want, you have to click the IMG tag at the bottom to copy it to the clipboard. You will see the word "COPIED" highlighted in yellow very briefly after you do this.

    THEN, scroll back up and paste that IMG tag to the message screen. The link should look like this:

    [IMG]text of photobucket image link[/IMG]

    I can't figure out where you'd be seeing a "Choose File" button on the Photobucket upload form. There IS a "Choose files" button on your PB page itself, but that is for uploading pics to your actual Photobucket account.

    Re: Quick photo posting tutorial

    Jessie,
    Thanks, now I sort of get it. The problem remains when I click on the " Display the upload form" the form does not appear. It did it for me once this morning, and will not appear again. Pasting and coping are things I did in grade school! This computer stuff gets me frustrated easily. Another problem may be that I have an Apple Macbook. I'll figure it out sooner or later! Thanks!

    Re: Quick photo posting tutorial

    Jessie,
    OK, I went to my album like you said and clicked on an image and saw the "copied" thing. Now, where the heck does it go? You mentioned something about a "clipboard." I have no idea where to begin looking for it. Thanks again!

    BB, are you on a PC or a Mac?

    If you're on a PC, once you see that it has copied to your clipboard, simply go into the post box and press CTRL and the letter "V". That will copy the image code into your post. Then simply click save and view your post. Give it a try.

    Re: Quick photo posting tutorial

    Dennis,
    No go with the key combo. I don't even know if I did it right. I also have a Macbook if that helps. When i say I'm challenged, I mean challenged. You need to tell me precisely each and every key stroke, move of my pointer, etc. etc. I'm that ignorant of these things. But, I can make spread sheets for my business, maybe a little crude, but they get the job done. Go figure!
