We host our pics on this server so there is no need to use photobucket
When reply to a thread or starting a new thread such as this, below u will see "Add an Attachment"
Use the browse button as to where u have the pic on your computer
The click the "Add an Attachment" button
The sever sometimes has truoble loading very large pics, as it has a inbuilt editor that resizes them and creates thumb nails.
1/Crop the pic on your machine to remove unwanted background, and bring the sublect to the foreground
2/Resize the longest side to about 600 pixels
3/save as / choose jpg/ change name to what u want./ U will see see an options button, set this about 20% / save

There are good free pic editors downloadable on the net... irfran is one
http://www.download.com/3001-2192_4-10387524.html

Its better than MS paint

Steps

Yes I saw that...news items are for news..they do not automatically go into news...News items are passed by Administrators before approval.
I did email u requesting that u email the pics to me and what u wanted to do with them...as a thread in forums or add to the members section in the gallery. Both of these members can do themselves, but if having difficulties email to Admin and we will do it on your behalf

Hi guys!

I posted this on a new thread, didn't realize about this old thread about pic uploading/hosting.
Let's continue the conversation here, find powerpoint presentation below, hope it helps:

Quote:

since many of us seem to have trouble uploading pics to the forum etc... I have made a simple powerpoint presentation to try and help those with difficulties.
I'm not very good with powerpoint, so if any of you can improve the layout of my work please do so by all means and upload again with a different ver. number.

Since size is too big for this forum I hosted it at google docs:

https://docs.google.com/fileview?id=0B9eAptgrwd8gZjU0YTFmNjYtMWM0Yy00YzY5LTllZDUtMmM5Mzg4ZDMzNjJk&hl=en

Still... I suggest you take a quick look at this forum if you want to learn the basics of picture edition:
http://paintdotnet.forumer.com/viewforum.php?f=34
Lot's of interesting basic tutorials already covered there in much more detail.

Please feel free to ask if you still have any questions etc...

Hope it helps! thumb


For irfranview, you can download it also from the original website:
http://www.irfanview.com/
Don't forget to check FAQ section on that website. Batch conversion function is really useful.

For picture browsing and online hosting, Picasa by Google is really nice, for edition I find it a bit confusing, I prefer irfranView or Paint.net, but to review pics etc... picasa is really nice
http://picasa.google.com/
and to create and upload your own photo album:
http://picasaweb.google.com/home

Of course all these apps are freeware. Probably the best one out there is Photoshop but for a regular user any of the 3 programs mentioned can do the job for free! and also they are easy on computer performance.

Please feel free to ask any questions!

Cheers / Pablo
