View Full Version : How to post photos" in the gallery/in a thread" not using flickr?
Hello everybody, I am hoping that somebody can help me here......I would like to post photos that are on my computer in some threads but I dont know how. (I use a mac)...I would also like to post photos in the gallery here but I am unable to...I know how to post photos (link photos) from my flickr but I would rather just post photos in our gallery. Thanks in advance, michael
is there a way to have the photo appear full screen (like when I do it from flickr) or is this my only option?....thanks again Richard (Pitxu), I appreciate it.....now if i could just figure out how to use my new scanner and scan a negative without it looking like it has a million dust particles on it, I might be happy....cheers, michael
I have a persisting problem with posting in the Gallery. I've posted some pictures soon after becoming a member of the RFF. Later, all my atempts at posting in the Gallery were unsucessfull. I get messages stating that the picture exceeds the allowed space - I've tried to upload shrinked photos of 5kb and the message is the same...
Two messages to the webmaster - no reply. Two posts complaining about this - no answers.
I wonder if there is the need of any sort of registration/subscribing to post in the Gallery, or if I should delete my old photos there to upload new ones...
Any tips would be apreciated.
Thanks in advance
Tahnks Richard, but I dont understand this
"And if you want it to appear full size, click on it, then slide your mouse across it to select it, click right then "copy", then paste it in the thread."
"what" do I click on and what step do I click on "it".....thanks again...
sh@t..i cant figure it out...i gotta go outside now...i'll try later...thanks richard
You are near,
-once you uploaded your photo as an attachment (you allready done this), click on the "preview post" button. A preview of your to-be-published message will appear (no need to make "test posts").
The thumbnail will appear on the preview of your message.
-right click on the thumbnail and select "copy shortcut" or "copy image location" (if using firefox)
-click on the "insert image " button (it is the only colored button above your reply box
-delete the "http://" text, right click on the text line and select "paste"
the url address of your uploaded photo-attachment will appear on the insert image window.
-click "ok" and you are ready
you can "preview post" again to check if is it ok or you want to make any changes ;)
Joao, there have been big problems with the gallery and they are getting sorted out...slowly.
Write a nice PM to "MP Guy" explaining your problem, I'm sure he can help you.
Thanks, Ill follow your advice
ok...i hope this works
ok, i hope this works....
edit:...well almost.....I am not sure how to get rid of the smaller image below...
If you upload your photo as an "attachment", you can't get rid of the thumbnail.
Your photo in order to appear in the forum must be uploaded somewhere on the web. If it is uploaded on flick or the rff gallery you follow the "insert image" button way and the photo appears full size. The thumbnail stays to the original place the photo was uploaded.
If you choose the "attachment" way, the photo is uploaded to the forum, that's why it appears in your post as a thumbnail.
Hey thanks alot Eliask and Richard (pitxu), I appreciate it.....
And the part of Richard, was played by : Claude Rains? ;-)
Good information, a few more reads and I may also figure it out.
