Re: Help I can't post pics !

I'm curious does uploading and saveing pictures on the forum use up space?

Yes, but that is what the space is there for

Re: Help I can't post pics !

Thanks for the answers, i can upload somewhere and just link it, but what it happens when someone leaves with some reason and quits his photo hosting account then we will just see "photo not available" So it would be better if we just could store our photos on the site these becoming the property of Sixth Army Group and while it exists (hopefully for long) all the topics and replies will be functional.. With picasa can be downsized quite easy and upload it in some album and just use it .

Re: Help I can't post pics !

I have the same problem. I can upload the pics as thumbnails to my postings, but how to attach these in full size?

It is written in FAQ that "you can click the arrow next to the attachment icon and select it from the list..."

I can see the attachment list, but no arrows next to them.

I have tried also to link the URL of my photo hosting to the appropriate window but this doesn`t work either.

If someone could write a step by step tutorial of how to attach pics to the postings, and not only in FAQ, that would be a great help.

It can't be that hard, if a bunch of guy's who play with dolls can do it, why can't I ?

Re: Help I can't post pics !

I do not have trouble posting pics in threads but I can't get any to post in my album if I actually have one not sure if I made an album correctly.

Re: Help I can't post pics !

I can't seem to be able to post photos. I go to the start new thread, hit enter a couple of times to get a place for the photo. click on the little mountain / sky icon above, copy in the direct link from photobucket,

and

nothing...

any suggestions?

Okay, think I've got it. thought I needed to click on the icon then put in the link, but it worked by just inserting the link into the post.

Thanks
Leonard

Re: Help I can't post pics !

I have a PhD and have been using computers since 1967, but I cannot figure out how to upload photos here. Somebody obviously knows the trick. Please share it!

Re: Help I can't post pics !

OK,

Try this: Don't use the 'Insert Image' button of the forum-editor.

Instead, just copy & past the 'IMG code' text from Photobucket (see below) into the forum-editor and click 'Preview Post'.



That's how I added this picture (which I first uploaded to PB).

Good luck!

Re: Help I can't post pics !

I think Gary is talking about uploading the files to the SAG server, not using an offsite picture host.

Gary, I will see what I can do to put something together. Kind of busy at the moment, so may be a little while.

Correct.
Why doesn't somebody who has uploaded many pics come forward? I saw somebody had over 500!

Re: Help I can't post pics !

What website are people using for loading images to then upload to this forum? Had used photobucket many moons ago.

I’ve been using www.pbase.com it’s not free, but it’s very affordable
