How to: Posting Pictures

    There are multiple ways to share pictures with other members in the community. You can upload images to our picture gallery, attach photos to posts within the forums, or use imgcode to share pictures from an external site or from your gallery. The following is a tutorial to help you better understand all of these options and to promote the usage of them.

    Uploading pictures to the gallery

    You can upload pictures, videos or sound files to the picture gallery on the site two different ways. The first of which is by clicking the Upload a File link from the Pictures drop down menu at the top of every page while logged in and then choosing which category is most appropriate for your file:


    The second way to post a file to the gallery is by browsing to the category you want to contribute to and clicking the Upload link toward the top of the page beneath the navigation bar. Choosing this method automatically selects the category you are viewing to upload the file to:​


    Attaching and posting pictures in the forums

    As noted previously, you can both attach, or upload, pictures to posts or display an already hosted image within your posts with imgcode. ​

    To upload an image to your post, or when creating a new thread, scroll past the Message box where you type text to Additional Options. You will see a button that reads "Manage Attachments." Clicking this button will open another window that will allow you to upload files of certain types to your posts:​


    After attaching an image to your post, you can choose to display the thumbnail(s) of it\them inside of your posts (like this post) rather than at the end your post by using the paper clip icon at the top of the editor box:​


    To share pictures hosted elsewhere, or in our picture gallery, there is a handy icon labeled "Insert Image," when hovered over, that will allow you to paste the URL of the image to add to your post:​

    I am new and uploaded some pictures of my baby girl. I chose the members category, thinking it would add my name, but the moderator posted my pictures in the at play category. How do I get my name to show up under the members category?

    Well when you first upload your pics they have to be approved by a moderator. So you will have to wait to post them till they are approved.

    Once approved you can look through here
    and find your pictures.

    About the chat sometimes there are people there, sometimes there is not.
    It had a few people in there tonight. Weekly chat sessions will start soon.
    Still planing it out.

    In addition to the forum gallery, you can also create a photo album in your "Public Profile". That way, you will have all your pictures in one place and anyone viewing your public profile, can also view your album. However, new pictures will be subject to moderator approval. That usually takes 24 hours or less. Once you have created an album, you can use album pictures to post them into any thread or forum.

    To create an album or add to your existing album

    1. On the forum toolbar, above, click on the "User CP" (control panel) button. A new page will appear.

    2. On the left side of the page, you will see a menu. Click on "Pictures and Albums", found in the "Networking" section. A new page will appear.

    3. From here, you can select "Add Album" or modify an existing album.

    To post pictures form you album, found in your "Public Profile"

    1. Open the photo album, either from the "User CP" button or directly from your "Public Profile".

    2. Click on the picture you would like to post.

    3. The picture will come up on a page by itself.

    4. Below the picture you will see two lines of code. One says "Picture Url" and the other says "BB" code.

    5. Click once on the line that says "BB" code. It will highlight the information in the line, with a gray color.

    6. Now, position your mouse cursor over the highlighted line and RIGHT click.

    7. You will see a popup menu, and from that, select "Copy".

    8. Now when you start a post that you want that picture in, you can position your cursor anywhere in the "Reply to Thread" box, and RIGHT click and select "Paste" and it will paste the "BB" code into your "Reply to Thread" box. The line of information should start with [​IMG].

    9. From there, you can either "Preview Post" or go ahead and "Submit Reply".

    Hope this helps :)

    Is there any way I can upload picture from my phone? My computer is down and I can't seem to post any pics from my g1. Maybe email some pics to be approved or any suggestions? Id really appreciate it, thanks.

    I'm not really sure how to help you. I wish I had some wonderful advice to give. Hopefully, someone will come along to assist you in posting since your computer is down.
