Uploading photos
« on: April 05, 2016, 08:04:43 PM »
Don't know about you but I find it impossible to upload photos on this forum. Obviously if people are having the same problem as me that means the forum are loosing many great and rare photos. There must be something someone can do on this forum to resize postings make the posting of photos bigger. There are one or two that can do this but that's to be expected.

I use Lightroom 5, It's an Adobe photo editing program, If you have photo editing software it's easy, free software downloads  are available

I use Tinypics and resize to 640x480 then click on the second down IMG then copy and then paste under where you are typing in the forum reply box. I use it  for every photo I upload onto the forum and no problem.

I have found 2 photos on the forum from different threads that I need to merge into a new post. Does anyone know how I can copy and paste into a new post? I can get the writing in but not the photos.

If on a desk top. Click the left side of the mouse upt curser at bottom right side of photo then move the curser across to the left and it should turn blue. Right click on mouse and a box will drop down, click copy go to where you want it left click on mouse then right click and it should be as you want it. Try that.   O0 O0

townie,
I have just used the copy and paste process that I said to try with this photo from another thread. And as you can see it does the trick      O0

Yes Fred

You will have to save a copied photo to your photo file on your own computer before you can upload it to another thread on here.

Townie, this is what I do and it always works.

Go to www.tinypic.com.  Click 'browse'.   Your pictures files will open. Click the pic you want, it turns blue.

Click open at bottom of pictures window. The URL appears in tinypic. Click the green upload box.

Type the security code it shows you. Tinypic opens a new page with choices. click the second one down, it says IMG code for forums and message boards.

Hit reply on forum, select appropriate check box under reply window and right click, select paste from drop down menu.

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
