Default Posting pictures help (with graphic examples)

If you have the photos on the hard drive of your computer here is how to add them to your posts -

Name:  adding_pics_1.jpg
Views: 362
Size:  49.3 KB

after you click on the paper clip, then "browse", search for the folder on you computer where you stored the photos and choose the photo you want to upload. (also notice the maximum file size chart)

Name:  adding_pics_2.jpg
Views: 370
Size:  115.5 KB

you can upload 5 photos at a time after you browse and choose each one individually

Name:  adding_pics_3.jpg
Views: 353
Size:  62.8 KB

close that window after you see all photos have uploaded

Name:  adding_pics_4.jpg
Views: 357
Size:  62.8 KB

now you're ready to add the photo(s) to your post -

Name:  adding_pics_5.jpg
Views: 361
Size:  55.7 KB

Name:  adding_pics_6.jpg
Views: 354
Size:  59.6 KB

IF you need to resize your photos, you need to do so before choosing and uploading them, I use the "Paint" program that is built into Microsoft Windows, if you don't use Microsoft Windows you'll need to use a similar program.

Name:  resize_1.jpg
Views: 347
Size:  51.4 KB

Name:  resize_2.jpg
Views: 355
Size:  62.3 KB

If you want to just use part of a photo -
(if you need to both resize and crop, I would crop first, then see if you still need to resize)

Name:  crop_1.jpg
Views: 325
Size:  131.2 KB

Thanks Glasshopper1955, I think only the mods can make a thread a sticky, but if they don't I can understand that they might need to limit the overall number of stickies, so I'll leave it up to them.

Thanks Vlad, it is appreciated as some have indicated it was a big help to see actual "how to" pictures instead of just written instructions alone.
(I know I learn things faster that way myself )

I didn't want to put you on the spot requesting it be stickied as I can understand you might want to avoid having too huge a number of stickies, so I appreciate you doing so !

Don't give up, check the thread above again, it shows a pic with the max file size for different formats and further down you'll see how to resize your photos so they will work.

Maybe double check to make sure the image is under the max file size as well as being under the max height and width (see chart above for specific limits)

Orientation of pics solved...LOL. On your computer, open with Paint, re-size, rotate, or manipulate as you see fit and then save, When you post it should post in the correct orientation. Did a few tests and it seemed to work...HH

If your pics are still over the size limit try to save them as a jpeg that reduces the size quite a bit and usually works.

This particular post is NOT about uploading a picture, but about how to save a picture that is not available with the usual "save as" method.

For those who want a way save a copy of a section of whatever is on their computer screen this can be of help to you

There are some things that are difficult or impossible to save a copy of the normal way so I found a free program called "PicPick" where you can choose an area to copy and save as a photo.

You can find it on the Cnet download site or the direct site, the version for personal at home use is free -

http://ngwin.com/picpick/download

see this on the above link -

When you install it make a desktop icon you can click on whenever you need to use it.

Open the program first, then put whatever you want to copy a section of (web page, ect.) on your computer screen, then at the bottom of your screen the program icon should be in the taskbar, click on it to bring it on top so you can select the "region" option, then the program page disappears and a "crosshair" appears, I usually start in the upper left corner of the area I want to copy and hold down the "left click" button and drag it open to cover the area you want to copy, the let up on the "left click" button and then choose "file" then "save as" then I usually choose the JPG format, and name it whatever you want to name it.
