How to post Pics on FYIFORD FORUM

I see people posting here all the time, and like Steve has said, and many others , we need more pics on this forum. A pictures is worth a 100 words. !!! 

So, it was brought to my attention by a friend and forum member, that he didnt know how to upload pics here , and it must have been necessary to make another account at a pic hosting website .. making it another account username and password you have to remember and adding one  most step to the process.. 

SO I have created this very sloppy but PICTUREFUL document here that is attached, that you can use to teach yourself how to add pics to your posts and replies.  

Hope this helps, and may be y'all will start adding more pictures to your posts  

Where you are writing your reply you can click on this “Upload” button to upload pictures / screenshots

This small window will appear with name ‘TinyPIC’ , in that windows select “Choose File” 
http://i66.tinypic.com/28k574w.png


This will open another small window which will let you look through your own computer or phone, and select the file you want to upload. In that window select the file you want to show in your post, and hit open. Only one file at a time.

The name of the file you selected should show up on the area right beside that ‘choose file’ button. This means the file has been selected, now is the time to upload it, so click “Upload NOW!”

Now the file is uploaded , there two ways to add this to your post.

To click on “add to post” and the photo will show up in your post window full size

OR This is the method I prefer as it makes my post easy to edit later, is that HIGHLIGHT all the link that is given to you there with heading “IMG Code for Forms and Message Boards” , and RIGHT CLICK, and click on ‘Copy’

 Then close the small white window or click anywhere in the darkened space, and then on your reply, RIGHT CLICK and select Paste. This will only show the link when you are typing, but on posting the reply the image will expand itself to the full view

While it seems all the work, but it really is easy and you do it a couple times and it becomes a habit! J
 
Now get posting!

Seems like it would have been a lot better to just post those pics on the forum rather than having folks have to leave the forum an go to dropbox...  Or are you having a hard time posting pics?  LOL

I was thinking the same thing... but, I'm just excited I made it into the "How to"... on page 1 no less!

That's kinda like telling someone to turn their music down and they reach over and turn it down and say they couldn't hear you for the music.

It certainly is a lot easier with TinyPic than it was having to use Photobucket on the old forum

No worries, I was going back and forth to the FYIFord Photobucket account.. So your post did teach someone how to post a pic on here...

Re: How to post Pics on FYIFORD FORUM

Gaba,
Thank you for your write up, but this does not work on the iPhone SE or iPad. This morning, there is not even a button to upload photos. Can you help?
thank you

Re: How to post Pics on FYIFORD FORUM

So on the iphone or the Ipad.. instead of writing the post on the box below (white space) Click on "Post Reply" and then on the bottomright an option will appear 'upload image' 

I will make a turotial for Iphone / ipads too now then just so all info is here  

And DO NOT use the "Add to post" button on the mobile device browser. just copy the link and click "X" to close tinypic

Try it let me know 

BY THE WAY, I JUST REMEMBERED.. In the Ipad or iphone or any mobile device, Click on the three black lines on the top left, that will give you an option of "Desktop Format" and that will be full computer type website instead of the mobile lite version (the white and black) you see on your mobile device.

Seems to work with iPad. I never would have figured out that technique on my own.

Re: How to post Pics on FYIFORD FORUM

I've been Uploading pix for some time and it certainly is better than using Drop Box or some other service.  However, lately it always wants to insert my pix at the top of my post or reply.  I found I can click on the pic, then do a Cut and Paste it where I had my curser in the first place and it will stay there....kind of a pain.  I'll try just inserting the link as Gaba suggests and see if that put 'em where I want 'em.
