I wish to upload a photo to a forum discussion. I see that other people have done this but I cannot see how to do it. Can somebody please tell me how? Many thanks.

How to add an image to A2K in 6 painfully easy steps:

1. Navagate to "imgur.com." You can type those words in the browser address area each time, or perhaps if you're feeling adventurous, save it as a bookmark/favorite.

2. Click on "Computer" in the "Upload images" section on the page. You might have to look for this, but it's sorta toward the upper right of the page.

3. Navigate to your image on your computer. (Pretend you are going to email it to a friend.)

4. Click "Start Upload".

(Seconds later .... Voila ... your image is now hosted on the Internet!)

5. Copy the link to the image, which is found to the right of the displayed image. (I use the "BBCode" link, and just paste that directly into my A2K post -- it adds the IMG codes so I don't have to. Otherwise you can use the "Direct Link" and add those codes yourself.)

6. Paste the link into your A2K post (using the IMG codes if using the "Direct Link" method, or without using the IMG codes if using the "BBCode" method.)

(Voila again ... you have just added a link of your image to your post. Always preview to make sure it worked properly.)


Note: The IMG codes should like something like this, as they surround the link to your image in your post:
Code:[IMG]http://i.imgur.com/Kxym77c.png[/IMG]

facebook is also a good hosting site...

@Region Philbis,
Thank you! I did it via Imgur. The images came out enormous! Any idea how to make them smaller?

@rdh61,

you will need the image's dimensions, which you can determine from its properties.

for example...

this image is 1600 x 1200 -- way too big.

Code:[img]http://wallpaperswiki.org/wallpapers/2012/10/Grass-Field-Painting-Artistic-Creation-Design--1200x1600.jpg[/img]


to reduce it so it fits nicely in the post window, i can reduce the image by halving the dimensions like so --

Code:[img width=800 height=600]http://wallpaperswiki.org/wallpapers/2012/10/Grass-Field-Painting-Artistic-Creation-Design--1200x1600.jpg[/img]


http://wallpaperswiki.org/wallpapers/2012/10/Grass-Field-Painting-Artistic-Creation-Design--1200x1600.jpg

always preview your post to make sure the image is both visible and the size you would like it to be...

@rdh61,
once you've got a pic attached - hit preview on your post

you'll see this

[img] pic link [/img]

to resize

go to [img]

and

[img height=newheight width=newwidth]

like this

[img height=4000 width=800]


hit preview and see if you've got the dimensions right - sometimes it takes a little bit of fiddling to get the proportions right
