How to upload photos to use in your posts !

Post by neil » Wed Oct 28, 2009 12:26 pm

When your posting there should be a bold link just above the window you enter your text 'Upload your Photos'

Image

Click this and the following screen opens:

Image

Click "Choose File" and browse on your computer for the image you want to upload

Image

Once you've selected the image click "Add the Photo to your post" and the following preview screen will display the image.

Image

If your happy its the right image click "Add it to your post" and you'll see that it will add a link to the image [image]<imagename>[/image] into the text you are adding.

voila !

I don't seem to be able to upload photos - keep getting the following message:

This webpage is not available
The webpage at http://thealpinaregister.com/forums/uploadpic.php might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.
Error 103 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_ABORTED): Unknown error.

Any suggestions?

Try resizing the pics yourself on your PC and saving them, this worked for me.

Thanks Mick.

I had an old version of Paint Shop Pro which I've just installed and that allowed me to re-size and I'm off and running!

XP users can download the Image Resizer powertoy from microsoft and resize with a right click. Vista and 7 users can use tihis clone for the same end.


Highlight the picture(s) you are going to resize and right click. You should have the new resize option showing in the right click menu. This is what you will see


Image

This menu appears when you click resize
Image


Next choose 800*600 and hit OK.

uploading photos

Post by ktruby » Sun Oct 05, 2014 10:49 am

Neil,

I am seeing a broken link rather than the upload photos link - I have tried Safari, Firefox and iE9. Is it me or a known problem?

Thanks

It seems best to use something like Photbucket or similar

New members don't automatically get the ability to upload photos. I periodically allow this - as frequently as I can - but sometimes there is a lag.

currently all users should be able to do this

Photo uploads

Post by ktruby » Mon Oct 06, 2014 10:46 pm

Thanks Neil - just my impatience I guess. Everything working now (and D4 photos posted)

I know I'm a newbie, (only my 3rd Alpina :-)

Can we get D4 on the 'Add my Alpina' ?

I use an iPad for virtually all my browsing and can't see the "upload a pic" link as shown in the pic above.

Does my ability to upload pics need to be allowed as a newbie (relatively - been about 6 weeks or so now)? If so could some one allow me please.

Many thanks in advance :D
