Updated on 20 July 2017.

There are three ways of displaying a photo/scan:

1. An existing photo that is already on the internet:

a. Find the image on the web site.
b. Right click on the image and choose 'Properties'.
c. With MS Internet Explorer, copy the 'Address (URL)'. (Ctrl+C)
Other web surfers like OPERA, just right click on the photo and get 'Copy Image Address'.
d. Now go to your post and click on the Img box, PASTE your Image address (Crtl+V) and click on the Img* box again.

The line should now look like this:

Code:
[img]http://www.picture_address[/img]


2. If your image is not yet on a web site:

a. Just click on the upload link as shown below and your image will be hosted by Postimage.
Image

b. Click "Choose images" and navigate to the image(s) you want to upload.
Image

c. The image location is automatically placed into your message!

3. If your image is not yet on a web site and you want complete control over your images:
Upload your photo to the internet, using a photo hosting website, such as the free imgbox or nickpic.host.

a. Log into imgbox

b. Select the UPLOAD button
Image

c. The File Upload box opens. Browse to the folder where your photos are saved and Select the file(s) to upload.

Note that holding control down while you select allows multiple file selection.

Image

d. Choose where you want your uploaded file(s) to be stored.

Image

e. Click Start Upload.

f. Once your file is uploaded, click the far right Copy button to copy the BB Code. Make sure Full Size is selected, otherwise you'll get a thumbnail which is liked to the full size image.

Image

g. Paste into SAAF FORUM page. NO need to tag it with the usual [img]Your%20URL[/img] tags.

h. To paste links to multiple photos at once:

Click on My Images:
Image

Select the images you want and then click on the Share button.
Image

Please, do not make the uploaded photo too large, 800 x 600 is a good size (72 dpi)

That's a nice clear explanation :smt023

I have seen some posts here with thumbnails (click for full size image).
How is that done?

An old question, but still relevant.

You first need to specify the URL to the main large photo & then set the IMG thumbnail location. So in essence you have to have uploaded two files ie the large image & a thumbnail image.

Code:
[url=http://www.yoursite.co.za/misc/large_photo.jpg][img]www.yoursite.co.za/misc/photo_thumbnail.jpg[/img][/url]

Cheers

Maybe someone could make an account on Photobucket for all the members of the SAAF forum to use.

Public accounts are great - until username & password get out into the wild and start being used by child pornographers.

How do you add copyright to photos?

You don't need to do anything, if you created the photo in your own capacity - not as a photographer working for a newspaer etc - then you automatically own the copyright until you sell it, give it away or in any other way renounce it - such as declaring your photo to be in the public domain.

I imagine he meant a watermark... For which there are automatic programs, some upload sites have a built-in function, and most image-editing software can be used with varying degrees of effort to achieve such an effect.

But this form runs on phpBB, not VBulletin.

2. If your image is not yet on a web site:

a. Upload your photo to the internet, using a photo hosting website, such as the free Photobucket. (http://www.photobucket.com).

b. The fourth line feature below the placed photo on Photobucket has an IMG code. Click on it and copy it ... Paste it in your post just like or Imageshackit is ! (It already has the [img] code around it !)

Just hover over the photo and the drop down list appears. Then just click on the circled link and then paste (CRTL-V) into the Forum reply post.

It will look like this:
Code:
[IMG]http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/xxx/imagename.jpg[/IMG]


And appear as:
Image

But please, do not make the uploaded photo too large, 800 x 600 is a good size (72 dpi)


Photobucket has "changed" everything, none for the better IMHO. Time for a new set of graphics, Dean.
