    How to Attach images to a post/thread.

    Noticed a lot of people struggling with the attachment app on the forum so thought I would do a little guide.

    Firstly create your post/thread like the following....



    Next Scroll down the page and click "manage attachments" (See note 1)



    Click "Browse" on the first box and then select the image you wish to upload. (See note 2)



    You can add multiple pictures by clicking the next "browse" button, up to 5 at a time.



    Once you have selected the images you wish to upload simply click "Upload" to upload the files to the site. Once finished it will look like the following.



    Job finished (See Note 3)


    Note1:

    You cannot manage attachments using the "Quick reply" box. If you are in a "quick reply" box simply click "Go Advanced" in order to access the attachment options.


    Note 2:

    There are some image restrictions. The maximum filesize that you are allowed to upload is 200kb so check the size before uploading


    Note 3:

    If you want to embed the images into the post do the following....

    Right click on the hyperlink of the image you want to use and click "copy shortcut".



    Right click in the window where you want the image to be, click "Paste" and then put the [img] tags on either side of the link



    Job done

    Your the only person I know who also thought it was a better idea to make those icons in the taskbar a smaller size! I hated them large!

    Good guide. Teach 'em all a lesson!

    Cheers Scott. I still use imageshack but the forum method is easier IMO.

    I had problems putting up vids but I have sorted that now.

    Thanks

    Great thread Scott, Just what i needed. Took me ages to find this thread. Anyway i followed your instructions and was sucessful but i had to download a picture size converter and then find out the conversion of dpi to 200kb which was around 72dpi. The only problem i have is that after doing the picture size conversion it has left a kind of image over my picture, maybe you can advise what i have done wrong. Thanks for you help m8 could not of done it without your thread. 024_1.jpg

    Does anyone know where I can convert my images to a smaller size without faffing around in paint resizing the image. Also How do you get the images to appear full size again without clicking on the image to bring a new window up?

    Cheers.

    Try reading note 3 in Scott M's guide above.
    If you have the latest copy of MS office it has a handy "Picture Manager" programming which allows you to easily resize a picture to a given size or resolution.
